Doctor Who is an iconic BBC TV show that recently celebrated its 50th anniversary. The show has loyal (crazy?) fans that know every detail of the show and the characters. One of the interesting twists to the show is that the main character, the Doctor, can regenerate and because of this has been played by a slew of actors over the years. Each character has a distinctive personality and look. My youngest daughter, a big fan, has taken our routine Christmas cookie decorating to a new level. With just a simple gingerbread man sugar cookie, some white frosting, four shades of food coloring (black, red, yellow, and blue), and toothpicks, she created 11 masterpiece cookies. Meet the 11 different Doctor Who cookies.

Here are your cookie Doctor Who models in order.

I’m in awe of the details my youngest daughter was able to create with just a toothpick, her imagination, and her determination. There’s no way I’m going to let anyone eat these masterpieces! I need to encourage her to create the most recent Doctor Who in cookie form this year.
Who is your favorite incarnation of the Doctor and which Doctor Who cookie do you like the best?
I’m a mom of 3, a veteran and military spouse. I’ve moved into 20+ homes all around the world. My passion is helping busy people make the space and time for what’s really important to them.
Wow! She did an amazing job! I’ve only watched the new seasons of Dr. Who and I really think she nailed the last two doctors! She really captured their hair haha. Great job!
Dianna, I think she did an amazing job, too, and particularly on the hair! I’m a proud mama.
Can I tell you, Sue, that ,my whole family was sitting around gawking at your daughter’s DW masterpieces??
I clicked over for the Thurs hop and saw these! Love it…thanks for sharing and Merry Christmas!!
Chris, I can’t wait to tell her! See you next week for the link party.
thanks for sharing love doctor who following from all things thursday I’m lorraine at
She did a fabulous job…love them all!!
These are so lovely! We had a BIG 50th/60th birthday party on November 23rd (I share a birthday with the Doctor.) We had a lot of Whovian related dishes. I didn’t have any great luck with the gingerbread men (we tried to make gingerbread companions) but these are AWESOME. I’ve been a fan since 1981ish and Tom Baker (4) is probably my go-to favorite, but actually my favorite is probably the one I’m watching at the moment.
Happy belated birthday! What a testament to the show that you’ve been a fan since 1981.
SO awesome! And some serious detail, you can never eat them!!
Thanks, Bethany. Wonder if you can shellac cookies to preserve them?
I love Doctor Who and when I saw those cookies I squealed.They are fantastic!
I plan on theming one of my Christmas trees on Doctor Who next year; I’ll have to keep these cookies in mind when I put it together.
She did an awesome job!
Marla, Thanks, I’m think she did an amazing job, too. A Doctor Who themed tree sounds fun, I’ll have to tell my daughter about it.
Where was this post when I was making Doctor Who themed food for the 50th anniversary episode? 😉
Thanks for sharing this – I’ve pinned it. My boys are going to love this.

Doctor Who themed food sounds fun. Besides celery, I’m at a loss for ideas.
You are a genius and these are brilliant!
I have loved doctor who since I was a kid (Tom Baker was my Doctor back then) and am very excited that people all over the world love it now.
In a strange “it’s a small world” way, my son made my daughter gingerbread “house” for her birthday once (all the characters from the TV show House) which were kind of similar to these beauties of yours !
What a thoughtful gift for a brother to make!
I am absolutely in love with these. I remember Dr. Who from way back when!
Wow, these are fantastic!
don’t know the show but your cookies are super cute thanks so much for sharing at “Meet the Neighbors”
Wow! That was a lot of work and I really enjoyed scrolling through the doctor pictures matched up with the cookies. I am always surprised by the creative projects that pop up on Pinterest by Doctor Who fans. I love the show so this was good for a laugh!
I like numbers 4, 6, and 7! What! These are amazing. I see a character cookie company in the future.
Sue, what an exciting idea. I’ll be sure to share it with my daughter.
These are amazing! The details are really something. I’m partial to David Tennant because he was my first, but also a big fan of Tom Baker and Peter Davidson.
What fun! I love that she included Peter D’s celery stalk and Tom Baker’s curls. What an eye for detail.
I love the celery stalk detail, too. It makes me smile every time I look at it.
those are so funny! My husband would love these – he is a huge Dr. Who fan!
My daughter is, too. I must have been living under a rock, because I didn’t know anything about Doctor Who until she started watching it.
These are almost too cute to eat.
That’s my dilemma. They’re currently residing in my fridge. I’ve got to figure out a way to preserve them.
Those cookies are amazing!!
Thanks, Lisa. I think my daughter did a great job.
these are some of the best cookies EVER. i love them!
You put so much thought and creativity into these. Fabulous job on these super fun cookies!
Oh my goodness. Those are amazing!
I have never heard of Dr. Who but these cookies are awesome. Your daughter is very talented. Sylvester McCoy is my favorite.
Oh these are so cute! I have never seen the show but many of my friends are big fans. Your cookies look like the characters!
These are too cute! I know a lot of Dr. Who fans who would love these!
Wow, those are some detailed cookies! Your daughter did a fantastic job with those.
I haven’t watched Dr Who in forever. Those cookies looks adorable!
WOW! Now this is talent – she did a great job!
I keep seeing tons of Dr. Who stuff pop up everywhere, and I cant help but wonder what the show is like! I need to make it a point to watch it!
I saw this and it made me think of a blogger buddy whose family loves Doctor Who. I’ve seen it on a few times when I was flipping through the guide and now I’m even more intrigued to see what the hype is all about because before blogging, I’ve never heard of it before. These cookies are so cute and creative! Thank you for sharing with us!
How cool.. these cookies are amazing, the detail is stunning…thanks for sharing.. totally love it
Wow!!! Your daughter is artistic!!! She should start her own cookie making business!! Maybe she could make a cookie to look like every student in her class at the end of the year!!! (or maybe just onn for her teacher)!!
I have a friend who is totally into Doctor Who. She would thoroughly enjoy these. I’m going to share this with her. Thanks for sharing.
Ive never seen the show but those cookies are super cute.
These are so well done! I’ve never actually watched the show, but now I totally want to 😉
These are adorable! I don’t know who Doctor Who is, but I sure would like to see those cookies!
NO WAY!!!! Your daughter SO talented 🙂 These are super artsy. My 23 year old daughter is having a birthday soon and she is a Dr Who FREAK. I will have o try and make these for her.
I love shows like Dr. Who and I think I would really hate to eat these great cookies!
I have never seen the show, but she did a great job with the cookies. I wouldn’t be able to eat them.
These cookies would go great with my Doctor Who lunch box and Tardis thermos.
Oooh, my daughter would be so jealous!
The baker did an awesome job. Those cookies are really well decorated.
These cookies are too cute! Awesome job!
Those cookies are just too cute. I can see you are super Dr. Who fan.
I have a friend who is obsessed with Dr Who. She would love these
