Eighth sketch from saturday/sunday's stream!

Commissioned by :iconalkonium:, who asked for a pic of the 13th Doctor Who, holding her thrombic modulator Sonic Screwdriver. I gotta admit I've never been into Dr. Who, and now it seems like it's waaaaaay too long for me to get into, but hey, I did get into Star Trek just a few years ago, it might be possible... Some day >3>

I made sure to add the proper detail on her clothes, it actually does has a lot of subtle little details that be might be taken for granted while drawing, I even made sure to add her earrings, though you might need to zoom in to look at them properly.

Not into Doctor Who?! *unsubscribe*

Just kidding.

Now might be a good time to look into it - there's a new Doctor, and that's kind of like starting at the beginning.

Not quite, I'm more of the type of maniac who would rather watch the whole thing from the first version of the show chronologically.
Dante-Wynter's avatar
That would be quite a task to start at the *very* beginning - considering some episodes are missing and all.  How about starting with the series re-start in 2005?  Still lots, but not nearly as bad.

I'd just skip the missing episodes, simple :T

Hmm, well, we could set aside a couple of months in 2020 - unless you want to skip sleep.  And art.  We'll have to go 24/7.

Haaaah, I take my time with these sort of things, I usually like to watch films and series I haven't watched before while doing the colouring on the stuff I draw, since it's the stage that requires the least amount of attention, I watched Star Trek on and off, sometimes binging one of the shows, sometimes taking like a multi month long hiatus, and it took me years to watch it all. And that considering I haven't watched the latest show, STD, since as the acronym indicates it doesn't look particularly appealing.
Dante-Wynter's avatar
Oh, of course! I josh! It is far better to go slow with these things.  I, myself, am going through Star Trek: Deep Space 9 at the rate of about two episodes a week, if I'm lucky.  And while I haven't seen STD yet, I imagine it's very - catchy.

Ooh, Deep Space 9 is my favourite of the Star Trek shows, though the final season gets kinda lacking towards the final half.
Morn has the best one liners of any show I've seen though, that's for sure.

I'll get around catching up with STD eventually, is just kinda... Demotivating.

I'm going to bap you again for the misnaming. *baps*

Also tagging TheDarkNeon because I respect him enough to be disappointed that he isn't doing the same.

What did I misnamed? o:
HeraldOfOpera's avatar
The Doctor is "The Doctor" not "Doctor Who" and calling him/her the latter is a good way to get crucified. (That the American-made movie did so is part of the reason it's reviled)

There is a movie?
Alkonium's avatar
Technically there's three, but only the 1996 TV movie is canon. It was made as an attempt to bring the show back after it had been cancelled in 1989. It featured the regeneration the Seventh Doctor (Sylvester McCoy) into the Eighth (Paul McGann). There were two other movies in the 1960's, but they were reimaginings of the first two serials featuring the Daleks, and not part of the actual continuity.

And then you tell me there isn't a lot of catching up to do :v I'd wanna watch these films even if they were deemed non canon.
Alkonium's avatar
What I meant was it's not necessary but it helps. I haven't seen the Cushing movies myself, and I imagine they're kind of comparable to the 1967 version of Casino Royale.

That spoof of James Bond? I actually have watched that, It was forgettable, but I do remember that the jokes would keep on falling flat.
HeraldOfOpera's avatar
In much the same sense that there's a Super Mario Bros movie, because that's the level of effort that was put in with regards to fitting in the same series.
MentalCrash's avatar

That just makes it sound more and more like Star Trek.
HeraldOfOpera's avatar
Yeah, it's pretty much the British equivalent if only in terms of fandom presence and associated nuttiness.
Alkonium's avatar
If you mean the 1996 TV movie with Paul McGann, it actually didn't do that. The non-canon Peter Cushing movies did though 
Alkonium's avatar
The show is called Doctor Who, but the lead character is just called the Doctor.
MentalCrash's avatar
MentalCrashProfessional Digital Artist
Oooh
Alkonium's avatar
And because the changing of the lead actors is depicted on the show through a process called regeneration, each version of the Doctor is identified in numerical order.

Only 137 episodes since the 2005 relaunch (which is a fine place to start, IMO). You can knock that out in no time!
