Doctor Who Google Doodle Close-up [new version 11]

By HugoLynch
265 Favourites
Second version of a mockup of what I imagined Doctor Who's google doodle would be like next year (for his 50th birthday) Doctor Who is the longest-running sci-fi show ever (since 1963) and a British icon so I think it would be appropriate to have a google doodle on that day, at least in the UK.

I switched the colour of the 'g' and the 'l' to keep the blue TARDIS.

Since the original version, I changed the hue of the blue a little which is closer to the real colour. The window tiles are now black with white frames, as Matt Smith's TARDIS is like that. I added shadows and revamped the lamp as well as improving the handle and lock. Finally, I also added the St. John Ambulance sticker. The 'e' also now has a slightly translucent background.

Done in Inkscape.

For those not familiar with the show, the letters are Gallifreyan (from Gallifrey, the doctor's home planet) and are taken from his crib. They supposedly spell out his real name, so I thought it would be cool to use his name to create the actual doodle.

Check out the old version in my gallery. [link]

Although they didn't use your graphic for the 50th anniversary, what they wound up doing was pretty cool nevertheless.

I think there might be a way to change google's home page image (the doodle) if that is what you are asking but I'm not sure if you can use a custom doodle. Sorry I can't be of more help.

You can on certian browers using the 'Stlyish' app on them. I was just curious if you by any chance had a link t6o the file on there so one could use the custom doodle for their google image
