ROUND #153 :: Dr WHO: The FINAL DOCTORDESCRIPTION
Dr WHO: The FINAL DOCTOR: A TWO week CHOW
He has been through them all. His lives burnt up through the aeons of time, and The Doctor has reached his final regeneration. There will be no more.
Design the Doctors final form. His last appearance before time claims him, or doesn’t…
With David Tennant stepping down and Matt Smith, the youngest ever actor to play the Dr stepping up to fill his shoes, decide where his regenerations might lead. It could be simple or complex, so go with your imagination. However, try and keep it within the Whoniverse, the world of Dr Who. And remember, this is a TWO WEEK ChOW.

Ohh nifty topic, nice one Posh
Nice Idea... I dont know a thing about Dr.Who other than 'Exterminate'... lots of research for me then if I can join in this one (lots of work bits atm ^^)
"I'm a damsel, I'm in distress, I can handle this! Have a nice day."
...Some sort of sketchbook...
I've seen a lot of Dr. Who's come and go so this could be interesting. I hope I have time to join this one.
"Creativity emerges only when the imagination is given the freedom it deserves."
Here is my first 15 min sketch. I like his pocketwatch and his looks trough the passing of his regenerations. love the subject!
Nice topic once again! It will be interesting to see what everyone will come up with to embody the last doctor...
I need to stay away from Christopher Eccleston though, hehe.
Hmmm, I have never actually heard of doctor Who. So, if I do this, I'll need A LOT of research. Don't know if I could do the character justice.
Prolly because of the Dallas WS, KonnA, I know Daestwen is going at least, as well as several participants here, I would imagine
I'm so over this, even if it feels kinda like blasphemy, heh.....
And I also need to get Tennant out of my head. He's ended up being THE Dr Who in my head...

Nobody beats Tom Baker as Dr who..
I have never heard of doctor who, but want to test out drawing skill for this. Thanks wiki! Many shows like this never get to reach my country, sucha shame
does anyone know if the doctors have become younger and younger at every new doctor, or is it just a coincidence, if that is the case then maybe the last doctor may only be a young child, and thats why there will only be 13 doctors, or maybe even 13 will be the unlucky age.
I am not too familiar with the show, but does the Doctor have any special powers? I browsed through the Wiki description, but could not find any.

Might need a Tardis to enter this but will give it a shot
If I recall that actually is one of the side effects of the regen process...getting younger....I just can't recall if it applied to all Time Lords or not. Though I wouldn't say that the Doctor was an ordinary Time Lord anyway. It will be hard to get Tom Baker out of my mind as well..."The Mind of Morbius" was the first episode I had ever seen....kinda stuck.
At least you should recognize my avatar, eh Daray?
Awright...enough of my schoolgirl crushes...I LOVE Dr. Who and am rather happy Tenant is stepping aside! I did like Christopher Eccleston's turn, though. Man, I remember catching the eps with either Tom Baker or Peter Davison in the role.
Lots to consider here........
Oh My! Such a cool topic! but GAAAHHH! It's gonna be tough designing the final doctor and all, and I agree, the iconic scarf is one image that immediately strikes home when it comes to the WHO. Yet it's gonna be a blast seeing everyone's take on the good doctor
I don't think it's a side-effect of regeneration... as far as I know, the first couple forms stayed more or less in the same age range and then the 5th Doctor was much younger (hired on around 29?). Something like that. It's actually been suggested that the Doctor kind of sucks at regenerating-- that usually Time Lords had more control. Romana in the old series apparentlyIf I recall that actually is one of the side effects of the regen process...getting younger....I just can't recall if it applied to all Time Lords or not.

"tried on" a bunch of different forms before settling on one she liked. But the Doctor can't seem to do this. Which actually makes this topic much more fun, really.
I don't know if I'll try to do this one or not... on the one hand... Doctor Who omg. On the other... I'm not sure what I'd do. There's the temptation to do a very young Doctor, but... in my head the right age for the Doctor is Tennant, who's 37 or something like that. Mid-30's seems appropriate.
I think the only guideline here, really, is to come up with as wacky and eccentric a costume as possible. Because if you're not wearing celery, a 15-foot scarf, or a crazy overcoat, you clearly aren't cool enough to be the Doctor.
Flameraven- thanks for the info, good to know for his design and all.

Last Dr. Who I watched was about 6 regens ago, so I've some catching up to do, though I suppose he's been a fairly constant character over the decades in terms of his basic personality. It's all the quirky details that made his various incarnations so interesting.
Gadzooks, all you whippersnappers who watched Tom Baker's Dr. as kids -- my kids watched Tom Baker!!! I feel decrepit...
