Finally, someone put Web of Caves on YouTube. This is the Dr Who spoof that almost gave me a stroke (not literally)! I couldn't actually watch most of it the first time through because I was laughing too maniacally.

BE IT KNOWN that I designed my version of Moist about a year before seeing this. Hence the reaction. I must thank Mr Gatiss, though, for providing such an excellent hair model so I didn't have to make complete guesswork out of the fringe.

So much glee. So much.

Wah! It is him! I say you go kidnap him and make him be your private model.

He's too old now ... I think this clip is from the 90s. It would be handy to have a mannequin head with that hair, though.

I would like you to know that I am completely indebted to your drawing for my mental image of Moist (because I saw it before I read the book).

Moist von Lipwig is The Doctor!

Is that David Walliams?

Nope, 's Mark Gatiss.

I mean, that's who's playing Moist/the Doctor. I don't know who the other people are; you might be able to find out on Wikipedia or something.

Nah, the bad guy. I looked up David Walliam's filmography. It is him.

No, I'm more familiar with his writing ... I did enjoy Nebulous on Radio 4 a while ago and am listening to The League of Gentlemen on BBC7, in which he performs as well. Funny guy.

Bwah hah, brilliant! He even ACTS like Moist! I love how he's got the pointy nose, suit, hair, everything! Coincidences are marvelous fun! XD

I love the little take he does when the 'bad' guy finally hits on the right 'DOC-TORRR.' So many layers. Heehee.

MAJOR LOLLING at this end. XD This only confirms someone with some executive power should suggest they make a Doctor Who/Discworld cross-over episode XD

Moist meets the Doctor or The Doctor panicking about Unseen University peeps messing bout with the fabric of reality?

Haha, I cast my vote for the TARDIS materializing in the Library and the first thing the Doctor has to contend with is an irate Librarian.

Oh, and the TARDIS vs. the luggage.

Oh, this was hilarious! I have to admit I snorted my water up my nose at work while watching this on a break. I loved the whole thing about setting up an appointment for stopping evil and the practicing evil voices.

And, yes, Mark does look amazingly like your Moist von Lipwig. The hair is great as well. I like to see you are now drawing Moist with longer hair in your latest art. I kind of pictured him as having longish hair a bit on the shaggy side like this.

Mark would be great. Too bad if he is getting too old to be the age of Moist von Lipwig.

Me again.

I have to tell you I showed one of my colleagues at work this clip. We both were annoying our coworkers we were laughing so hard. Turns out he used to be a big Doctor Who fan in the 1980s and went to lots of conventions. Real Life and the high cost of living in this area got in the way after that, I guess. Neither of us has followed Doctor Who past the sixth incarnation, probably to our loss (for me it was also not having access to a TV set :-( ). It was kind of fun to find out something new from a coworker. I would NEVER have guessed him to be a Doctor Who fan. Maybe he might get into Discworld....

Heh, that was fun. Where did Gatiss get his Tardis? I want one! Is he trying to be a specific Doctor, or just a general mish-mash Doctor?

Also, there has been an official Discworld/Doctor Who crossover of sorts!
I bought a buncha old Doctor Who Magazines at a used book store in Arizona, and one of them has an 8th Doctor comic in which he alleges he has been to the discworld. I'll try and bring it in and post it tommorrow if anyone's interested

I love your icon

Howdy there!

I just wanted to mention that I L-O-V-E your icon. It is cute. Did you make it yourself?

It would be interesting to see your reference comic about the Doctor being on the Discworld.

Hiya, TheFord! Thank you! Yes, I did draw my icon. My copy of Going Postal got so worn out, being read and reread and loaned out, that the cover got completely thrashed. I didn't particularly like the US cover, so I went and designed my own. Moist here is based somewhat on Twirlynoodle's design (particularly the cut of his suit, which she does absolutely perfect in my opinion.
Here's a link to a bigger version: http://donteatanybugs.net/goingpostal.jpg.

Your icon's from a Discworld calendar right? I haven't bought any of those, are they good?

I also brought in my Doctor Who comic complete with Discworld mention. It's from Doctor Who Magazine #251, May 1997: http://donteatanybugs.net/doctorwhodiscworld.jpg

It's not quite as dramatic and exciting as I remember, but still pretty good. The story behind me finding it's dramatic and exciting though. I bought it from a used book store in Tucson, Arizona, where I had in fact, the day before, bought my first ever Discworld Novel (Going Postal of course.) I had stayed up the whole night reading it, and come back to the store for more, also finding their pile of old DWMs. I only bought 3 (my cash had run out at this point) but I accidentally picked the only one (that I know of) with a Discworld mention. Weerd, huh?

It's Paul McGann, the eight Doctor. I have no clue who his companion is.

Thanks for the drawings!

Howdy again, fellow American!

Thanks for the Doctor Who comic. That is really fun seeing Discworld mentioned like that. Kind of one of those jokes that people in the know will find hilarious.

I am IMPRESSED with your GP artwork. That is a very nice alternate cover to Going Postal- very cute and sneaky looking Moist von Lipwig. Maybe we will see a new cover for "Making Money" as well! The Karl Hiaasen-style US covers are okay for me, though I do prefer the Kidby covers myself. I actually did like the paperback cover version of Going Postal in the USA (The one with Moist and Boris looking like something out of the Kevin Costner movie, "The Postman"). Your cover version is definately a fave now as well.

I see you are also starting to post and have some fun artsy stuff going on, so I will probably check things out from time to time.

Thanks again for the images!

Me again.

In answer to your question, my icon is from 2008 calendar. It has just come out in the UK and is not available in the USA. My hope is I can score one the next time I am in Reykjavik since they tend to carry the British Discworld stuff.

hey, i'm an artist too...sorta....

Wha? That's so weird! I love it!

Did you hear that there's supposed to be a third Moist book? Called "Raising Taxes," I believe.
