Doctor Who Fish Fingers and Custard

Happy Fish Fingers and Custard Day, Whovians!

It's a momentous day in the Doctor Who universe! BBC has officially decreed April 3 Fish Fingers and Custard Day in commemoration of the Eleventh Doctor's debut episode, "The Eleventh Hour," which was two years ago today. This is when we first met Matt Smith's dapperly dressed Doctor and were introduced to his human companion as child Amelia, who in the present/future is cheeky Amy Pond. As exciting as it is to witness the Doctor save humanity from destruction yet again, it's his attempt to find Time Lord-friendly nosh with little Amelia that makes the episode one for the TARDIS history books.

Get in on the celebration by adding a video response to YouTube of you eating the questionable treat. Matt Smith claims the concoction is a "dream come true in a bowl," but we think that's a clever ruse to get us to try the suspicious dish since the "fish sticks" used during filming were actually breaded coconut pieces.

If a frozen fish reality is too much to bear, try Bakingdom's fish fingers and custard recipe — which is all sweet treats, no fish involved.
