This drawing has been getting a lot of response lately on my deviantART page for some reason. I wasn’t on Tumblr back in 2011 when I drew this piece after Elisabeth Sladen passed away, so I thought I’d post it here now. Kind of in a reflective mood tonight for various reasons.
I do really appreciate all the kind words about the drawing I’ve received these past couple years. It was something I needed to do out of a sense of emotion and a need to find closure. I’m glad others have enjoyed it.
(The blog I wrote about Lis Sladen’s passing in 2011 is here.)
So, there’s been a reference to each Doctor’s era in chronological order since The Rings of Akhaten. If this holds true, there should be a mention of Six’s in Nightmare in Silver, and Seven’s in the finale…
Yeah, he does.
This is the greatest thing in all of classic Doctor Who
DOCTOR WHO Revisited: TOM BAKER - Apr 28 BBC AMERICA
2013 is DOCTOR WHO’s 50th Anniversary. Each month, BBC AMERICA takes the TARDIS back in time with Brand New Specials on all eleven Doctors. This month, it’s Fourth Doctor TOM BAKER:
Take an in-depth look at the fourth incarnation of the truly timeless Time Lord, who quickly made the part his own, and with his eccentric style of dress and speech — particularly his trademark long scarf — immediately became a recognizable figure. Playing the role for seven consecutive seasons over a seven-year period, he’s the longest-serving actor in the part so far. With exclusive interviews with lead writer & executive producer STEVEN MOFFAT, producer MARCUS WILSON, companion LOUISE JAMESON and TOM BAKER himself!
“I didn’t play Doctor Who, I was Doctor Who.”
Then, in the story “Pyramids of Mars,” the Doctor and his companion Sarah Jane Smith (ELISABETH SLADEN) attempt to free a pyramid imprisoned Egyptologist from his possession by Sutekh, the last of a powerful alien called the Osirans.
Don’t miss the Premiere of the fourth DOCTOR WHO: THE DOCTORS REVISITED Special, plus the classic Fourth Doctor storyline “Pyramids of Mars” *** Sunday April 28 at 8/7c *** only on BBC America.
Time’s in flux, changing every second. Your cozy little world can be rewritten like that. Nothing is safe. Remember that. Nothing.
