I love this show and our fandom. William Hartnell started a phenomenon all those years ago and I thank him for it.This show is truly something special.

Spent several weeks on this one. I’m not typically one for a lot of details, but that’s how it unfolded. It started off on the thought: How does the Doctor deal with self-image? I wonder what goes through the Doctor’s mind when he/she sees a reflection. It can’t be the same psychological experience of self-awareness that humans feel when they see their reflection. Does (s)he recognize past selves in the same way I always see my 10 year old self in the mirror, even though I am clearly much older and rough around the edges?

These are rhetorical of course. I’m not looking for debate. It’s just a thought that started this digital painting.

Each Doctor in their early years (except for John Hurt, even though I still consider him a Doctor ;-;)

  • Venus in the 1st: seeks beauty, femininity, softness
  • Venus in the 2nd: sugar daddy

  • Venus in the 4th: seeks beautiful traits of the mother's
  • Venus in the 5th: 's/he would be a wonderful father/mother'
  • Venus in the 6th: doctor crush
  • Venus in the 7th: 'bad boys'

The Doctor is really just regenerating from Space Gandalf into Space Galadriel!!!
