And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why we here at Contorted Pasta usually attempt to avoid anything that might lead to Politics like the plague. Though I suppose one has to visit the plague every once in a while to remember what makes it so ... plaguey ...



In other news, isn't Doctor Who awesome! Here, have a Look from Ten, he's giving them out for free. I'm nearly done Season 2* which means moving on to Season 3 and we all know what that means ... OH YES, The Lazarus Experiment! Never mind all that ... shippy stuff. At least I hope that's how it'll work out. Mad Scientist Mark Gatiss trumps hours and hours of hormones, right? Right? Amourous fanon invading my canon, grumble grumble mutter and sneer ... If things get too bad at least I can hit up the library for whatever Old Who they might have.

So I fixed the picture ... I say, he is fun to draw. It helps being a live action cartoon character, I suppose. My goodness, am I ever productive today. :P

*and I call myself a fan!

Well, the drawing isn't an exact match, but it captures him very well anyway. I knew who it was before I read the text of your entry. Very nice!

Wha?

You're only on Season 2? Poor Tealin. However, I suppose that means you have scads and scads to look forward to, so you're secretly very lucky. Personal favorite is Blink from S3, which is odd, as I love David Tennant to bits, and he's only in it for about 5 minutes. I like your Ten sketch, but knowing you're dissatisfied, I know I can look forward to another one soonishly, which is a nice byproduct of your creative frustration : )

Coincidentally, I was digging through some folder or other and found a random DW drawing from years ago and exclaimed 'ack! I can caricature him better!' and so promptly did. (my new userpic)

"Blink" is the best episode of any TV show ever, anywhere.

Jeez, you gave me a scare! I saw your drawing when you first posted it, and now I come back and the look had changed! Creepy!

Hmm, what? I didn't do anything, if the drawing changed then it did so itself. By the way, it's looking at you ...

I JUST started season 2. Miss Christopher Eccleston already. =( I suppose eventually I'll get used to how bird-like you've described the new doctor ;)

Mr Eccleston does have it sewn up in the 'dramatic depth' department.

That said, The Christmas Invasion is a great example of throwing a character in the deep end and establishing them right away, even before he knows who he is – no backstory or expository scenes, just HELLO THIS IS THE DOCTOR. Who can I show this to ...

The eyes follow you wherever you go, à la the statue of Jayne in "Firefly".

Omg The Lazarus Experiment :D Gatiss awesomeness aside, that's such a good episode. Things get better in s3, too, from a hormonal perspective as you put it. s4 is ever better, with a more old-school Doctor-companion dynamic.

Funny, it just feels like he's looking at my right arm. I've always been pretty bad at getting characters to make eye contact with the viewer ... if it looks right from one angle it'll look wring when I move the paper, and by all rights it shouldn't work that way.

I thought it was in s3 that the hormones really started flying, with Martha or whoever ... looking forward to the return to 'old-school' though, very much. Part of what first attracted me to the series was the novelty of a male character and a female character being friends and, for lack of a better term, cohabiting, but not making with the sex or even the googoo eyes. What madness!

You'll definately like series 4 then. That sentence sums up Donna and the Doctor nicely. :)

Naw, none of that shippy stuff. The "kiss" on the first episode was a genetic transfer. (don't worry, this isn't a spoiler, the Beeb ran the "genetic transfer" ads for season 3 plenty of times). I like s3! Shakespeare tons though :P

Season 4 I like The Unicorn and The Wasp along with Turn Left best.

Awesome drawing is awesome!

.. and clearly needs to be made into an icon. Can you release an icon of it?

If you want to make an icon of it, you're more than welcome ... I make boring icons. Square around head! Done! :)
