The Officail Doctor Who Calander 2018...

You've probably heard by now of the official 2018 Doctor Who calendar. You may even have bought it from one of those calendar stores that frequent shopping centres this time of the year.

You will definitely have noticed one or two little 'errors' that have made it past the licencing department at the BBC. Notably the third Doctor quote, in which a demand for obedience is attributed to the heroic Time Lord when it was actually said by his arch nemesis, the Master. 

There's also a modern 2015 Zygon on the fourth Doctor page. 

This is unacceptable.

I thought I could do better. Though it seems that producing an error-free officially licenced calendar is more
difficult than it appears...

The 1st First Doctor Audio Adventures recalled...

With the announcement by TV's Big Finish of their brand new audio adventures of the first Dr WHO, it's a timely reminder to note that David Bradley wasn't the 1st first recast Doctor to appear in sound form. 

Following his runaway success in The Five Doctors, Richard (Blakes7) Hurndall lent his voice to this hastily released LP back in 1984. 

He never got it back.

Crossroads - Battles in Kings Oak (again)

I've been sorting through my portfolio pages over the past few days. There's quite a few unfinished pieces still lying around. This was one of them. I've finished it now. I had to do something as I was minding the flat whilst the builders were refitting my kitchen. They've finished that now. We're all finished. (Except for some of the grouting round the back of the fridge.)

The Crossroads Battles in Kings Oak trading cards is (obviously) based on the Doctor Who Battles in Time trading cards that were all over the place ten or so years ago. To be honest, some of these are so obscure, I'm sure I'm the only person who finds the idea of a Crossroads trading card game amusing and tempting...

(I don't usually upload hi-res versions of my work - but these have detail in them that's hard to read otherwise. You'll have to click on them to read them fully.)
