The Doctor Who Quiz Books Of...

There were a series of largely educational quiz books published back in the early 80s. Written by Michael Holt, they featured the fifth Dr WHO and his assistants facing perplexing problems based around such themes as 'Space', 'Dinosaurs' and 'Magic'. Most of them ended up in remainded book shops as we Dr WHO fans didn't buy them much. 

Here's some modern versions that are themed around more relevant 21st century subjects...


Some more bits of Dr WHO artwork...

Finished doing these over the last weekend.

The Official WOTAN War Machine Limited Edition Carriage Clock

Christmas is approaching as I've probably said a dozen or so times on the blog already. (Sorry about that but I do need to keep bread on the table.) 

You're probably desperate to purchase a gift for the Dr WHO Whovian who has everything but cannot find anything that isn't already on a shelf gathering dust in that private upstairs spare bedroom of theirs. 

Well, your desperation is at an end with this lovely War Machine Carriage Clock based on the amazing robot men from the 1966 Post Office Tower - as seen in TV's Dr WHO television programme broadcast on BBCtv.

Another five bits of Dr WHO artwork...

Presenting Action VOORD!

The alien Voord! Not exactly the Daleks are they? 

Men in creaky rubber wetsuits with very peculiar helmets and equally weird 'teletubbie' aerials - they fought the first Dr WHO for control of the Conscience of Marinus in story five of the first series. 

And then they were gone... except for an appearance in the first Dr WHO annual!

And that weird comic strip in the Doctor Who Magazine where they turned out to be proto-Cybermen.

And they were recently the subject of a figurine in the Doctor Who Figurine Magazine collection thing.

Yes, apart from all that, they were the proverbial one-hit wonder.

So that's why I now present Action VOORD!
