Companion sketch #37: Cinder, the War Doctor’s companion from the new novel “Engines of War”- out today: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Doctor-Who-Engines-George-Mann/dp/1849908486
Obviously, this was a bit more than a “sketch” this time around.  I’m lucky enough to know George Mann (the book’s author) a little bit, and he gave me a heads-up that the book would give John Hurt’s Doctor his own companion (because you’re not really the Doctor till you have one).  We collaborated on the design, which was a huge geek-out for me, obviously. This may not be an official BBC-approved design, but it IS author approved.  Squee. :D
George said he kinda had singer Hayley Williams in mind for Cinder’s look, so I ran with that (probably in a lot less subtle manner than I would’ve if this were official work).  Her costume is kind of Joan Jett meets Snake Plissken.  Very much a post-apocalyptic punk Dalek-killer, to compliment the war Doctor’s own look.
And while I realize I’m a little biased, I can’t overstate this enough- go check out the book.  It’s everything I hoped for out of a Time War era novel (hopefully the first of many).  And you’ll never look at John Hurt’s scenes in “The Day of the Doctor” the same way again.

THE VILLAINS TRILOGY IS ON SALE. EACH FOR A DOLLAR. I KEEP TALKING ABOUT THESE BUT SERIOUSLY.

http://www.bigfinish.com/releases/v/omega-213

http://www.bigfinish.com/releases/v/davros-214

http://www.bigfinish.com/releases/v/master-215

These three are literally some of the greatest Big Finish has to offer. Omega is my favorite, but others will probably disagree. They’re really good and all standalone as long as you know a little about the characters.

Oh, and Zagreus, the three+ hour long, big confusing Doctor Who 40th anniversary special, is one dollar too.

All of S2 of Dalek Empire is 1 dollar each as well.

My thoughts on Classic Who “vs.” New Who

literaryshoes:

I kind of view being in the Doctor Who fandom as being in the TARDIS.

New Who fans are hanging out in the console room. It’s the room that’s responsible for where the TARDIS is going. Some people think that’s cause for derision, but the fact remains that they are aboard the TARDIS. If they choose never to leave the console room, that’s their decision, and I respect that.

Classic Who fans are more curious, seeking out the library, the tennis courts, the Zero Room. They’re not afraid of cheesy special effects, and find joy rather than pain in hammy overacting. They’ve decided that the console room is terrific and all, but they want to see what else the TARDIS has to offer.

And when you get to the Extended Universe fans, well, then you’ve gone off the deep end. Of the TARDIS swimming pool. Which EU fans have found, mapped out and thoroughly explored.

If you want to hang out in the console room, that’s cool. I’ll bring some comfy cushions and we can talk about how awesome Chris and David and Matt are, what we want to see with Peter, favorite Christmas specials, all sorts of lovely things.

If you’re a TARDIS explorer, I’ll help you out as best I can, with recommendations and things I’ve discovered that few people know about. (Example: the special feature “Five Doctors, One Studio” on the 25th Anniversary Edition of The Five Doctors. Watch it. You’ll be glad you did.)

And if you’re on the deep end of the pool, I’ll make Scherzo jokes with you, have good-natured Chapter-on-Chapter “arguments,” make jokes about touching plants and we can toast the reign of His Majesty King Nicholas Briggs.

My point? All Doctor Who is good Doctor Who. All Doctor Who fans are real Doctor Who fans.
