The Doctor's Wife by janey-jane The Doctor's Wife by janey-jane
Three things happen every time I watch ‘The Doctor’s Wife’:

1. I think it impossible to love it any more than on previous viewings, and then I disprove myself
2. I end up sobbing like a baby
3. An explosion of Neil Gaiman love

I started this in March (yikes) and it was incredibly frustrating so I’m trying to focus on the positives e.g. hey, that’s the first older-looking person I’ve ever tried to draw, way to push your boundaries Jane! *pats self on back*, and not on my paranoid art anxieties. I'm still really in love with the concept.

Oh dear... Poor Doctor number one. Lovely work, by the way. The expressions are really well done on both the Tardis/Idris and the Doctor's faces. Number one's one of my favorites of his incarnations because without him, I believe there would be no Doctor Who what so ever. (Plus, with that one story of him on Netflix, I kind of found him endearing.)

he is sort of endearing in a grumpy old man sort of way, isn't he?

Yes, he is.

Ahhhhhh, this is STUNNING! Never before have I seen Idris drawn so well! I like the streaking lines...

It's funny seeing the Doctor looking like the bewildered companion for once. And the fact that it's the 1st Doctor makes it even funnier :p

It's funny because he looked old but was, compared to the more recent doctors, so YOUNG! I like the idea of the TARDIS kinda hijacking HIM instead.
This is GREAT! Now I want to see Idris with the other Doctors. It opens up so many possibilities! NEAT!

This is so perfect, I can barely put words together to express it.  This is almost exactly the image I get in my head when I watch The Doctor's Wife.  It is so sweet and so beautiful and so worthy of the fandom.  Both the concept and the artwork.  The details, the expressions, the body language, the blend into Van-Gosh-esque colours and brush strokes.  Everything about this is coated in perfection!

This just makes me so, HAPPY! One of my favorite episodes written by the incredible Neil Gaiman. I enjoy your use of the first Doctor, which reminds me that it's about time I go re-watch the earlier episodes again! I have good feelings for the upcoming new Doctor.
