Doctor Who And The Cold War (2013)

Description

I loved the old Target books, still have loads of them. If you're a parent of a young Doctor Who fan - I totally recommend them, they still hold up really well. They're easy to read and great fun.

Anyway, this is hardly an original idea, but after last week's fantastic episode Cold War, I couldn't resist ripping off Chris Achilleos' classic cover to The Ice Warriors from the 70s. (Keen Target fans will note I used the green logo from the original 1976 1st printing of the novel!)

And no - she looks nothing like Jenna Louise Coleman - I was in a hurry!

UPDATE!: In my haste I forgot to mention - the 70s Doctor Who logo is an adapted version of an excellent detailed classic diamond logo, made by the talented :iconghigo1972: You can find the vector version here: fav.me/d3aocm9. I'd been searching for a decent diamond logo for ages. More great logos and icons available in his gallery!

MINOR UPDATE: Slight lightening of image and resized to fit Target book proportions. You shouldn't notice any difference.

MAJOR UPDATE: Clara now looks a lot more like Jenna, hopefully.

To match that cover, and turn it into this sort of amazing artwork is fantastic.
This feels like the Ice warriors and Cold war was close in the timeline.
as we saw with Empress of Mars, the Doctor meets them in different parts of their civilization.
So this works so well as like a sequel cover.

Amazing Job, and yes, the target books are beautiful to look at.
