Cool Dorm Rooms: Doctor Who Theme Dorm
Dorm Room Decorating
Looking for cool dorm room ideas? How about a Doctor Who themed room? There are so many ways you can decorate with this theme including bedding, accessories, posters, mouse pads and even school supplies.
Debuting in 1963, the fan base for Doctor Who has continued to grow and the show is now loved around the world. I first found out about this delightful series from my son who had been told about it by friends. All it took was one episode and we were hooked.
I may be past my college days, but if I were to be moving into a dorm, I would definitely go with this theme.

Doctor Who Room
Of course you'll need a place to sleep and most likely, that will be a twin bed. When I think of the color most associated with Doctor Who, the color blue comes to mind mainly because the TARDIS is blue.
Start with some plain blue sheets. These should be in a medium to dark blue shade and should include both a fitted sheet, which goes on the bottom, and a flat sheet, which goes on the top.
Now, to add to the theme, a pillowcase and throw can bring this bed to life. Keeping with the blue, I suggest using a TARDIS throw and pillowcase which you can find from Amazon below.

Of course you'll need a pillowcase. Think how well this will go with your throw.
Cool Dorm Room Ideas
It's pretty common to find posters on the walls in dorm rooms. Fortunately, for Doctor Who fans, there are quite a few to choose from. You can stick with the TARDIS theme or branch out into other areas.
Decorate your wall with a Dalek, who is one of the legendary Doctor's biggest enemies, or, one of my personal favorites, (and creepiest,) a weeping angel. There are also posters that show the different Doctors throughout time as well as different enemies.
I have picked some out below that you might enjoy.

Doctor Who Posters
Isn't this awesome looking? Can you just imagine being able to take a trip on this? I love how lively this poster is.
Here are 11 of the different Doctors throughout time. Nice for a true fan of the show.
The Doctor has faced many unique enemies in his travels and this poster highlights many of them.
Not as creepy as the real thing, but at least this poster won't give you nightmares.
Doctor Who Trivia
Benedict Cumberbatch, (of Sherlock Holmes and Star Trek Into Darkness fame,) turned down the role to play the Doctor after David Tennant resigned.
Doctor Who Theme Songs
I don't know about you. but I love the music of the theme song. This video covers every Doctor Who theme song from 1963-2013.
Doctor Who Themed Room
There is no shortage of accessories you can get to decorate your dorm room in this theme. However, space is an issue. If you're lucky, your roommate might be a fan as well. However, unless you already know your roommate and know that this person is a fan, it is best to stick to smaller accessories for your side of the room
Now, there are certain things that every dorm room needs such as a waste basket, desk lamp and alarm clock. Each of these items are small enough to work in your area of the room and each keeps with your theme.

Doctor Who Accessories
What makes this lamp really cool is that the Tardis flashes and the lamp makes sound.
This is modeled after the 11th doctor and has both sound and light effects.
What's awesome about this alarm clock is that it projects the time and Doctor Who logo onto your ceiling.
This fun clock will actually yell, "Exterminate!" to get you out of bed in the morning. It also projects the time.
Doctor Who Poll
Since its resurrection in 2005, who is your favorite actor to portray the Doctor?
Cool College Dorm Stuff
Although there are computers available on campus for students to use, most prefer to have their own to use in their dorm rooms. Due to space, most students opt for a laptop as a full set up could take up too much space.Whatever kind of computer is used, you can stick with the theme with a Doctor Who mouse pad.
In additional, many students opt to keep a mini refrigerator in their room. After all, there's nothing like a nice cold beverage while having a late night study session. Fortunately, there are even glasses to keep you in the magic world of your favorite time traveler.

J. K. Rowling, (of Harry Potter fame,) was asked to write an episode of Doctor Who, but she turned the offer down.
Doctor Who School Supplies
When planning out your dorm room, don't forget some basic school supplies. I would suggest having some binders, folders, notebooks, pens and pencils handy until you get the full list from each of your teachers.
For Doctor Who fans, you can plan ahead with some basic supplies that will match the decor of your room. Who would have thought that there would even be school supplies available? It does make sense, though, as Doctor Who is the longest running science fiction show in history.
