‘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.
• 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:
• 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:
• 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:
