‘Doctor Who’s Day Roundup: Putting the Art Into Cartoon

Welcome to this week’s Doctor Who’s Day roundup, a kind of intergalactic soup made from the finest Whovian stuff from the past week on social media and the internet at large.

This week, we’re kicking things off with a look at the various ways Who fan artists have rendered the series as if was a cartoon, and not, as we know, real life.

• Let’s start with this magnificent work from Thiago Luz:

• We would definitely watch a cartoon Who based on these designs:

• Or this:

• Then there’s this, a rather splendid college project to animate the Fourth Doctor’s regeneration:

Cartoon Masters (and Missy):

• The War Doctor looks like he’s about to invade a Wallace and Gromit adventure:

• A cheeky Five:

• Clara materializes in a comic book classic:

• Even the Daleks are getting in on the animation act:

• And to finish this cartoon theme, how about something truly heartwarming:

And now, here’s what else has been going on in space and time this week...

• Melanie Bush is back! And look out for some guy playing the spoons:

• The hoohah around the release of Season 24 prompted a tribute in the form of this Mel sculpture:

• Meanwhile, there’s this fan-made trailer for Season 23, done in LEGO. Because why not?

• Ten! Ianto! Jack! BACK!

• Feeling down? Try this perfect tonic from Matt Smith:

• Oh hello...

• Want to know more about the immersive theater experience known as “Time Fracture”? Check this out:

• If you’re locked down, why not make good use of your time with this:

• The Fourth Doctor finds himself battling his old foes, the Cybermen:

• Or should that be Snowbermen?

• While we’re on the topic, here’s how Graham Norton found out that Noel Clarke has a big head:

• A flurry of custard content:

• The First Doctor delivers the Eleventh Doctor’s first big speech:

• Depends where they’re filming, really:

• A fiery Missy:

• A very wistful Thirteen:

• Eight looking beautiful:

• And to finish this week as we started it, on a cartoonish note, how about all of Doctor Who singing a supercut cover version of “You’ve Got a Friend in Me” from Toy Story?

A-one, a-two, a-one, two, three, four:
