TARDIS interiors

“Draw the background” they said, "It will be fun” they said. Oh god, it wasn’t fun at all, I’m so so tired of this, but I just had to draw the Tardis interior by myself. Doctor and Rose deserve the best.

Oh savallah, the days I’ve spent with this image, floating in my mind, because of You and this damn rpg. You have no idea. It belongs to You, along with my heart and soul.

If anyone was wondering, which galaxy is behind the Tardis, it’s this one, obviously. Is there any other?


The Christmas Invasion - Behind the Scenes [Part 4]

Excerpt from Benjamin Cook’s articles in Doctor Who Magazine #365

David Tennant is getting his first peek inside the TARDIS wardrobe. It’s actually the TARDIS control room - here, as always, in a warehouse in Newport - redressed with racks of clothes, a whole load of accessories and some tailor’s mannequins. Oh, and a Doctor Who scarf that Phil Collinson’s gran knitted when he was six! It all looks fab.

“Lots of frocks, aren’t there?” says David, gazing around in delight.

Maybe the Doctor was once a transvestite?

“Yes, somewhere in between his Sixth and Seventh incarnations,” he deadpans, pointing at a mannequin in a bright pink shell suit. “Ooh, I like that. That’s what the Eleventh Doctor will wear!”

Well, let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Tomorrow, David will record his ‘rifling through clothes and choosing his new costume’ scene, which is, for those in the know, a bit of a regeneration story tradition.

Hey I love your blog an your art an I was wondering what or who is the Shalka Doctor? I'm a huge whovian but I've never heard of him


Back in 2003 there was this Flash-animated Doctor Who series that was produced and broadcast on the BBC’s website. It was called Scream of the Shalka, and was written by Paul Cornell (the writer of various DW novels/comics, as well as the more widely known stories from RTD Who, “Father’s Day”, “Human Nature” and “The Family of Blood”). During the time of its production, the DW series had not yet been revived and the creation of SotS was a way of celebrating the 40th anniversary of the original show.

This was the very first story that portrayed a proper (non-spoof) Ninth incarnation of the Doctor. They were voiced by Richard E. Grant (aka Shalka!Doctor, aka REG!Doctor)

However, before the webisodes were even released and made official, there were people behind the scenes trying to convince the BBC to produce a brand new series. Once Russell T. Davies was hired as showrunner and Christopher Eccleston was officially cast as the Ninth Doctor in the revived series, the characters and events of SotS were immediately pushed to the side and are now typically designated as “non-canonical” material (read: separate timeline from New Who).

So yeah. It’s often dismissed because it doesn’t fit with the new series, though imo that is a huge plus, for a variety of reasons (and there’s no reason you can’t enjoy both anyway)

Some additional points:

  • in this alternate universe, the Doctor and the Master are travelling together in the TARDIS
  • The Master (voiced by Derek Jacobi - hello! Two for you, Sir Jacobi) inhabits an android body (constructed by the Doctor, with the Master dictating preferences re appearance etc., naturally) because his physical body was destroyed in events that occurred prior to the story. He is literally unable to leave the TARDIS (for reasons that are not quite clear) but despite the unstable and complicated history between the himself and the Doctor, they’ve evidently been together long enough to have gotten to the point where they’ve reached an understanding and get along well. Descriptions of the TARDIS interior (in the novelisation) indicate that they’ve made it a shared home for both of them
  • Alison Cheney, the primary human character, is voiced by Sophie Okonedo. She is awesome x100000 
  • David Tennant has a very small (uncredited) role in the animation as a caretaker, because when the audio for the animation was being recorded, he was in a nearby studio recording a radio play. When he heard about it, he managed to convince the director to give him a minor part (aw)
  • RTD is quite harsh about REG’s performance in SotS but he thought the story itself was excellent
  • Paul Cornell wrote a novelised version of SotS which was published in 2004. If you’re going to pick between either reading the book or watching the animation, read the book.
  • Cornell unambiguously states in his notes that the Doctor is asexual (thank you Paul)
  • The Shalkaverse is an amazing place
  • The end


Our sources can reveal that the TARDIS will receive a complete overhaul as it crashes into a planet infested with strange alien cyborg creatures who stalk children through the monitors n their stomachs.

Showrunner Moffat commented: “we wanted to get back to some of the childlike colourfulness that worked so well for Colin Baker, so show how Peter Capaldi is basically just a big softy.”

“Tinkering” - Digital Oil Painting

I kinda liked Eleven’s magical disco Tardis interior, hehe. This was a lot of work, with all the little details, but I just loved all the colors.

This is NOT a Photoshop filter, every stroke is painted by me.

What would your ideal TARDIS interior look like?

I’m gonna do the extremely boring thing and say, basically the Eighth Doctor’s. I love the TARDIS as a wondrous space both cosy and intimidating. I love the whole gothic feel, just like I loved the cloisters in Logopolis, I thought those were gorgeous. Just a magnificent labyrinth of stone and metal hiding every impossible thing imaginable, that’s how I like it.

An Afternoon with Mark Gatiss & Friends notes

So, according to the ever-lovely Ian there will hopefully soon be a recording of this afternoon’s Q&A made available by LLGS, but this is a partially-typed-on-the-bus recollection of some of the particularly fun or memorable bits from An Afternoon With Mark Gatiss & Friends. In no particular order and with no promise of coherence.

Behind a cut because that turned out more rambling than I intended!
