Man, I'm productive this week. Two-hour portrait of Mark Strickson, who played Turlough, one of the Five's companions in classic Doctor Who. He was a fun character, and so was this drawing, even though I'm totally stealing palette and composition from `loish.

Now this is a character I'd love to see return to the series.

Turlough! This is lovely, the colors are brilliant! There is not nearly enough Turlough fanart out there.

Heee! WELL, Alex wants to watch episodes with Five too, so maybe we can have a marathon this weekend or sometime?

Re: your text message. We can watch the 6 hours of... Adric's first episodes. See... Okay, I had a long explanation for Alex for this as well.

The first episode with Five is actually in the middle of a trilogy plot involving the Master, so Five's first episode makes less sense than usual if you don't watch the stuff leading up to it. So I suggested watching from when Adric joined the show (he traveled with both Four and Five), because then you get a little taste of Four as well, along with K9 and Romana (the Time Lady companion and future president of Gallifrey). And Nyssa and Tegan, Five's other two companions, also get introduced in the episodes right BEFORE he regenerates. So it's better to watch from near the end of Four's reign.

IT'S ALL VERY COMPLICATED. I think I'm just not explaining it very well, but yeah. XD Unlike in the New Series, you can't just jump in when a new Doctor appears. (...Actually you totally can for some other Doctors, like Six or Eight or... I'm rambling.)
