Life is better, down where it's wetter! DW Sketch

In an effort to be on the correct day, I present

The sea devils!
     An aquatic offshoot the silurians, they featured in a story involving the Master and Pertwee's Doctor titled the Sea Devils.  They would later team up with their silurian cousins against humanity and Davison's Doctor in Warriors of the Deep.

DW Sketch- Galactic, Psychic Butthole

The Nestene Consciousness

During  filming of Spearhead from Space, a plastic bag was used in the construction of the Nestene prop. Unfortunately it ended looking like a pulsing sphincter. Otherwise, the idea of a psychic alien entity that can have it's consciousness inserted in a piece of plastic is pretty innovative for the time. Let's see what you guys come up with.

DW sketch- wirrn

From Tom Baker's second story

The wirrn!

     An insectoid race that stiffs through space, the queen plants her eggs in living hosts. This story helped set the pace for the first part of Tom  Baker's tenure on the program.

Got my sketches mixed up, this should have been 22

The haemovore!

Sadly, Sylvester McCoy didn't have many truly amazing stories. The haemovores (a bold sucking offshoot of humanity from the distant future) is featured in one of those stories. The Curse of Fenric has the titular Cillian bringing these vampiric beasties from the future to 1940's North Umberland to defeat the Doctor. Some of them, like the one I sketched, spent some time under water and become bloated and grew barnacles . Let's see what you've got and I'll get back on schedule .

Life in plastic, it's fantastic! DW Sketch day 22

Here we have the auton!

The hive mind foot soldier constructs of the nestene conscious, they are typically mannequin- like. An  advanced process can produce a protects replica of an individual. They appeared in two classic Who stories, Pertwee's first story (Spearhead from Space) and his second season opener and the Master's intro (Terror of the Autons) Let's see what you got. Later  guys

DW Sketch 21- rutan, tootin good time

Yeah, that was bad.

So, the rutans are at war with the sontarans, basically all the time. They've only actually shown up one time in classic Who and have yet to make the transition to the new series. If you haven't seen it, the Horror of Fang Rock is an amazing piece of Classic Who. There you are, later  guys!

Day twenty sketch- caught in the talons of Weng Chiang

Magnus Greel! The butcher of Brisbane

Today we have a double sketch for Doctor Who Monster October! To escape his crimes in the 51st century, Minister of Justice (Greel) used a time cabinet from the questionable sigma experiments to flee into the past. Horribly disfigured, he was mistaken for the Chinese God of pestilence Weng Chiang.

     If you haven't watched the fantastic story, what are you waiting for? Do it now!
