I've always liked the thought that Bad Wolf was both Rose and the TARDIS, and of them having some sort of lingering affinity/friendship because of it.
And Neil Gaiman, geeze, I've been in love with you since I was 13, and now YOU GAVE ME A PERSONIFIED VERSION OF THE TARDIS TO PLAY WITH. you're like the gift that never stops giving...
Ever since The Doctor's Wife aired I've been doodling ridiculous little sketches of these two in the margins of everything - painting each others nails, going shopping, plotting against the Doctorgossiping about the doctor... you know, girl stuff.
It seems like most Whovians have a favorite Doctor, and often a favorite companion - but during a conversation with ~Jb-612 it occurred to me that I don't have favorites for this show. My favorites are usually whichever doctor/companion I've been watching most recently (Even when I go back and watch classic Who I get attached).
I love them all, and I wanted to draw them all - the three new Doctors and their primary companions (no whinging if I left out your favorite secondary companion. I love Jack as much as the next girl, or guy, or gender indeterminant alien being - but THIS took forever without adding more people in).
*EDIT* I'm super excited that people love Oswin/Clara because I love her too! But...I'm not going to be adding her to this image. I knew when I drew it that it would quickly be out of date, this is often the nature of fanart. ♥

I love the Doctor and River so much... I had to paint this, regardless of how long it took to finish. The Doctor is allowed to sleep sometime! River will watch over him. Cookies for anyone who knows why the time on his watch is significant to them.
