For @imjustworkingonstayingalive, Vicki, wearing the Viking helmet found by the Doctor on the beach in The Time Meddler. I left this one in black and white mostly because I thought it looked better that way, for once.
if anyone thinks the Doctor and his companions have always been good little pacifists beans they could not be more wrong
like, man, first storyline ever the Doctor wants to kill a dude by bashing his head in with a rock (which, funnily enough, is how an audio decades later would dictate he actually did murder someone when he was only a kid) and is stopped by the guy he just essentially kidnapped
a while later the new fifteen year old companion straight up tries to murder Nero and nonchalantly shrugs about it when she tells the Doctor about switching the cups around
I’m not saying One and Vicki are casual murder friends but then again I have always said they’re immensely similar people/kindred spirits despite one being a Time Lord and another being a human teenager so maybe that is exactly what I’m saying
and then you have Leela. who just. straight up murders multiple people. and the Doctor treats this like a pesky quirk like “oh you, stop that” most of the time
so basically what I’m saying is
that just because Ten is a hypocritical, self-righteous little shit, don’t hold Eleven or Twelve or anyone who writes them to some ridiculous pacifist standard that RTD should not have established (or possibly did not mean to establish, he might have meant it to be interpreted differently)
Few pics (some older, some of them took right now) of Tardis teams that I know so far for One era family weekend because one of the things that makes One era so awesome is that warm and caring feeling, when - once they overcome some starting difficulties - they become more family than a team.
Okay, so it looks like I failed Inktober this year. Lost my sketchbook for a few days and being so busy I just had no way to catch up. But I thought i’d upload the ones I did get done. Most of One’s companions!
The Rescue - Doctor: My dear, why don’t you come with us, hmm? Vicki: In that old box? Doctor: We can travel anywhere and everywhere in that old box as you call it. Regardless of space and time. Vicki: Then it is a time machine? Doctor: And if you like adventure, my dear, I can promise you an abundance of it.
Vicki feels redundant as her older companions have their own stuff to do around the ship. The Doctor is busy fixing the Time/Space Visualiser, Ian is reading ‘far-fetched’ sci-fi novels, and Barbara is making clothes for Vicki (which Vicki then spills tea/coffee over). Sounds like a normal family to us.
