The Fiddling Doctor by TheLadyNerd The Fiddling Doctor by TheLadyNerd
****EDIT: On October 19, 2011 Ryan passed away. This picture seems rather symbolic now...our Doctor has stepped into the Tardis for the last time. His family still has to pay the medical expenses incurred while he was living. Donations/proceed from the buying of this shirt would still be incredibly appreciated.****


A dear friend of mine, Ryan Jones, is a popular costumer in Doctor Who circles for being a complete doppleganger for David Tennant (as seen here -----> [link]). He's also a very accomplished violinist/fiddler and plays for the LoCash Cowboys.

Ryan was recently admitted to the hospital with a life-threatening ulcer and fell into a coma. He's slowly, but surely recovering in a rehab hospital. But our dear Doctor is in for the long haul of recovery. All of his friends are doing their part in giving part of their talents to help them out. So here's my design of our favourite fiddle-playing Doctor.

You can purchase this design on a t-shirt here (There's a quite a few versions of the shirt too on that website (one for men, women, and the design in Tardis Blue and "Master" black. :D ).) ...[link]

All proceeds go to Ryan!

so Ryan's not actually dead....right? he just needs rehabilitation....right? oh,i'm so sorry to hear about this D: it's just so sad that life can be cruel to the most innocent people...well,if it makes you feel any better...just think of it as he's regenerating...just getting his power and strength back to save the planet once again....okay?

Oh how I wish he wasn't. How I wish our Doctor was still with us, but I'll keep on hoping that maybe we'll hear that fiddle play and the Tardis bell sound once again. (It is a sad and sometimes cruel thing to watch such good people, like Ryan, get taken away. I just take the lessons like good folks like him give and try to share with others. He had such a big heart for everyone he ever came in contact with. Here's to hoping we can all do the same. *cheers*)

Aye, he is very very much missed. There's not a day that goes by that I don't wish he was still here. Life is really not fair sometimes.

I never had the chance to meet him, but I've only ever heard great things about him. :( Do you know how Essay, his girlfriend, is doing? It must've hit her pretty hard.

She's doing as well as can be expected given the circumstances. But she's a strong gal.

Of course. She would have to be. If you have the chance to see or talk to her, please tell her that my thoughts and prayers are with her.

Thank you for making this. I had seen it around DragonCon and it made me smile, knowing he had so many of us backing him up. Even though I am going to miss him terribly I find some solace knowing he left a really good mark on the world through his friends. You can't be completely gone with all of us here remembering.

You're most welcome. I just wanted to be able to give of my talents to help my dear friend. We'll still be selling the shirts (and I believe there are matching pins now) to continue to raise money as there's still medical bills to pay off.

Thanks again! :)

I have seen ribbons being passed around made to also support him, but I don't know if they were ever put up on line. They're made in the design of his outfit and accented by a rose for his girl. I bought some for me and a friend, and I'm praying for his recovery as well.

I like the artwork, I'm sure if he saw it he would love it.

Ah yes, those ribbons were made by a friend of mine (and Ryan's). Thanks so much for buying one. Every bit helps!

Thanks so much! All the help we can offer Ryan helps. We had folks at Dragoncon this year ask why we were carrying around a picture of David Tennant in the parade.

This is great! And so fantastic that you are trying to help your friend. I'm glad he's getting better.

I will try to buy at least one shirt. And I will re-blog this if that's okay with you -- try to spread the word!
