Welcome to this week’s Doctor Who’s Day, a rummage in the dusty corners of the Internet to find Whovian dust bunnies and then train them to become world conquering despotic monsters.

We begin this week, after a nightmare scenario in which humans are attacked by their own sleepy eyes, with a wonderful genre crossover that has been around for a while, but is new to us at least. Artist Kelsey Wailes created a fantastic Whovian version of Edward Gorey’s The Gashlycrumb Tinies titled The Gallifreycrumb Tinies, in which everyone dies:

Personal favorites include D for Dave and R for Rory.

And while we’re looking at cartoons, this sums things up rather well:
