Could I please be 12 years old again, If only for a few hours? Because I just heard about a competition to design a new control panel for the Doctor's time machine—and it's only open to children from 6 to 12.

"Doctor Who prides itself on surprising its viewers at every turn, and who better than a child to come up with the latest design of the Tardis console?" said Tim Levell, editor of the show Blue Peter, which is hosting the contest.

The winning design will be chosen by the new Doctor, Matt Smith, and will be used in one episode of the show next year. Entries will be judged in three different age categories, with the winner in each age group getting to visit the Doctor Who set and meet the cast and crew.

Unfortunately, there's no age group for those of us older than 12, but those of you who are eligible can visit the Blue Peter site to get more information and download an entry form.
