If you're new, every year we do a photo challenge in October called the "31 Days Of Wholloween" 

The premise is simple, each day there is a prompt. You post a picture  related to that day's prompt on whatever social media platform you want  (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, etc) and use the hashtag  #31daysofWholloween You can get your pictures from wherever, and you can  join and an play along as much or as little as you like. If you miss a  day, you can catch up if you like, or just jump back in. Remember, this  is supposed to be fun, so we hope you join in!

*Unless the prompt is specific to a certain part of the Doctor Who  universe, you can answer from any part of Doctor Who including the TV  series (classic and new), comic books, Big Finish and spin-offs.
