So, do you want to win your very own copy? Here’s how…
In 50 words or less, answer the following question:
If you could spend Christmas with the Doctor, what Christmas present would you give him?
Email your response to firstname.lastname@example.org
You must be an Australian resident to enter, and you can only enter once. The judge’s decision is final and no correspondence on the matter will be entered into. Got that? Good!
The competition closes at 5pm (Melb time) on Friday 16 March 2012, after which I will pass all the answers over to our guest judge, without the names of the entrants. She will then pick two winners. I will then contact the winners by email to get postal addresses. Please note that it must be an Australian postal address.
Now, let me introduce you to our guest judge, Australian author Lili Wilkinson.
Lili Wilkinson was born in Melbourne, Australia, in the front room of the house her parents still live in. She’s an only child, and loves it. She was first published when she was thirteen, in Voiceworks magazine. After studying Creative Arts at Melbourne University, Lili worked on insideadog.com.au, the Inky Awards and the Inkys Creative Reading Prize at the Centre for Youth Literature, State Library of Victoria. She now spends most of her time reading and writing books for teenagers. She’s won awards for the writing part, but not the reading, unless you count the stopwatch she won once in the MS Readathon.
I asked Lili to tell us a little about her relationship with Doctor Who…
I used to watch Doctor Who when I was very small — peeking between my fingers and occasionally running to my room, scared of the “Garlicks”. As a teenager, I came to love Tom Baker and Sylvester McCoy, and when they announced New Who in 2005 my hopes were high. Since then, I have adored some episodes, and been lukewarm about others. But nothing can replace the shiver of excitement and fear that I get every time I hear that “dunga-dunga” music at the beginning of every episode.
Don’t forget to check out my review of “The Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe”. Now… start writing those entries!
Catch ya later, George
