The 8th Doctor: Consummate Bad-Ass.
This is a sketch-card I did as a commission for a fellow Whovian who shares my love of the 8th Doctor. She asked for 9 and 10 as well, but 8 got me ranting like the Doctor Who fanboy I am.
If you take ALL Doctor Who into account, my favorite Doctor is the 8th Doctor. Yes, the movie was horrible. Yes, it had Eric Roberts as the villain. Yes, it even had WILL FUCKING SASSO in it…
…but Paul McGann was fucking AWESOME. He was a great Doctor who was saddled with the unfortunate circumstances of being The Doctor in a TV movie so Americanized by the BBC, that it lost all the charm of the BBC series. Yet he played The Doctor so freaking well, that it almost made up for how awful the rest of the movie was. He was like a guy in a life-vest, trying to push up the Titanic underwater…and almost saving it. He also did this without the use of a Sonic Screwdriver or The Tardis (for most of the movie, anyways).
Now, here are some reasons why you should LOVE him:
He was the longest-running Doctor at nearly TEN YEARS…and he wasn’t even given a proper regeneration at the end. He walked off into the sunset after saving the Earth. Again.
Ok, end of lunatic rant. But, seriously, check out the stories with the 8th Doctor. Especially the comics.
