Team Tardis II by DarkJimbo Team Tardis II by DarkJimbo
A love-letter to the reign of Patrick Troughton as Doctor Who back in the 1960s - not quite my fave era of the show but certainly my favourite in terms of the main cast. A great clutch of companions with a great Doctor, and near-perfect mix of backgrounds - highland bravado, cocker-nee pluck, Victorian gentility, Sixties glamour and space-age kitsch. Something for everyone!

Excellent, excellent work, and thumbs up :thumbsup: for Paddy Troughton. He's my favourite Doctor by far, largely because he was often confused, incompetent and shied away from action (i.e. he was a bit of a coward) but he always got the job done in the end.

Love all your work, the shading and highlighting are especially dreamy.

Aw, thanks very much sir. What I like about his Doctor is that his buffoonery
masks a genuinely sharp intellect - when he can concentrate long enough to use it!

The original plan was to do one of these for every classic doctor, and I had to
start with Troughton because... well, Troughton! I just the other day watched
'The Three Doctors' for the first time, and when he pops up suddenly it's a joy!

Isn't it? He was also my favourite thing in 'The Five Doctors'.

I look forward to further Team Tardis's. Or would that be Tardii?

Hmm... I wouldn't hold your breath. Just don't have the time these need these days!
Although I did get about two thirds into the Pertwee piece, so I could probably finish
that if I really put the effort in...

Yes! It's an on-off work-in-progress. Dunno when I'll finish it, but I will. Eventually.

I love this. Though Pat's eyes were very, very blue and Michael's hair was blond. But besides that, awesome! Jamie is my favorite companion, but I love seeing all of them presented very equally. Polly and Ben really do deserve more love.

Thank ye kindly ma'am! I actually struggled to find good 'eye reference' for some of the characters - too many of the photos on the 'net are black and white, of course, which is why there are some inconsistencies. But hey, if Leela can change her eye-colour mid-story, why not everyone else...? ;-)

Yay my favorite Doctor and all his fabulous companions. Great tribute! And in color no less :D

Well I thought he deserved the sort of epic picture that the modern Doctors get, as well as one in which all the companions are given equal billing - basically where Ben and Polly aren't completely ignored or quietly shunted to the back!

Hahaha, definitely. I love Ben and Polly a ton, so it's great to see someone else give them their limelight. Jamie may be my favorite, but he's far from Troughton's only amazing companion. I LOVE THEM ALL.

I do wish they would get back to having a wider variety of companions from further in the past or the future...he did have the best array of companions! Great piece my friend!:clap:

Variety is the spice of life and all that. I think they struck the past/present/future balance exactly right here.

Oh, you've NO IDEA how many re-draws and restarts and different versions this bloody thing went through. I ended up wishing I'd never started it, but it turned out worth it in the end. I've clearly not learned my lesson as I'm halfway through a Pertwee piece!
