Okay, so if you've been reading the site for any significant amount of time, you already know that your friendly neighborhood Splash Page editor is a big fan of "Doctor Who." In fact, you'll probably argue that "big fan" is a terrible understatement. But let's not bicker over semantics here, folks — let's give you the chance to win some great "Doctor Who" stuff instead.
On November 9, Series 5 of BBC & BBC America's long-running science-fiction serial "Doctor Who" arrives on DVD and Blu-Ray, featuring Matt Smith's first full season as the Eleventh Doctor. And as luck would have it, we have a bunch of "Doctor Who: The Complete Fifth Series" DVDs, Blu-Rays, toys, and other great "Who"-friendly items to give away to some lucky readers.
We'll be giving all of this "Doctor Who" swag away periodically over the next few days leading up to next week's release of the Series 5 collection, and posting some exclusive clips from the DVD and Blu-Ray bonus features. Want to win? Well, you're going to have to earn it!
Here's what we're giving away over the next 24 hours:
- One copy of "Doctor Who: The Complete Fifth Series" on DVD or Blu-Ray (your choice)
- One Series 5 Sonic Screwdriver (it's awesome — I own one myself)
Here's what you need to do to win:
1. Post a comment at the end of this story telling me your favorite moment in Series 5. Was it The Doctor's post-regeneration food binge? When The Doctor and Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) teamed up with Vincent Van Gogh? Rory's return? Share with the group, please!
2. If you're Twitter-enabled, keep an eye out for when this post hits the official MTV Splash Page Twitter account. ReTweet the full message (including hashtags) to all of your followers.
3. Tomorrow (November 4) at 5 PM Eastern, I'll randomly select one winner from everyone who ReTweeted the message and posted a comment. (That means that if you post a comment and RT the message on Twitter, you have two chances to win instead of one!) Keep in mind: If you want to win via Twitter, you must be following @MTVSplashPage to win, because I need to be able to direct-message the winning account.
4. The winner will receive and email (or direct-message tweet) from me, as well as "Doctor Who: The Complete Fifth Series" on DVD or Blu-Ray (your choice) and a Series 5 Sonic Screwdriver.
And that's all you have to do!
Oh, and GERONIMO!!!
