Super Whosday; the 4th Doctor, Tom Baker

The Fourth Doctor (Tom Baker)









































Well the Fourth Doctor (Tom Baker) was certainly the runaway favorite in the poll I put up, and I've finally gotten around to him. Hopefully these 12 different variations should be enough for everyone...

Baker is arguably the archetype for DW Doctors, and he's certainly the one I remember seeing on PBS as a kid - Even though I never really understood it and was far more interested in Superman and Batman. I loved the theme music though!

In fact, when the show came back with Eccleston, I said "Hey, what is this?! Doctor Who is supposed to have a hat and a long scarf!" Obviously I still knew very little about Doctor Who then, but now I understand why Tom Baker is such a beloved Doctor.

And as a bonus, check out some cool DW artwork people have been inspired to do -

First, 'John Smith's' 'The Implausible Astronaut'


Then we have 'Doctor Who on the Simpsons' by CPD-91
 











And also, something really cool from 'Michael'...

  10. Love the Jelly Babies

    More sad news for Dr Who Fans Roy Skelton, the original voice of the Daleks had died at 79 after a stroke... British Viewers may remember him as the Voices of Zippy and George from Rainbow...

    Just thought I would share this sad info.

  11. Love it and love that you included Jelly Babies, you can't have The Fourth Doctor w/out Jelly Babies!

    Now, get to work on Jon Pertwee! ^-^

  14. I don't know if you gave this guy permission, but based on the other stuff he's selling, I'm guessing not - http://j.mp/m021J1 - Thought you might like to know he's trying to make money off of your artwork.

  19. Hi Dean! Great drawings!! Would love to see one of David Tennant as the Tenth Doctor. Also, if possible at some point in time, there are tons of Dark Shadows fans who'd love to see you do drawings of the original soap opera cast members. Please and thank you very much!
