I'd been doing Dr Who ebooks for the BBC web site for a year or so and this project came along. I was flavour of the month I guess.

you don't sound that excited to really do it for them?

Well, yes I was excited. But it was eight years ago, so I can look back and recall how the work I was doing then lead to this. There are things that worked about this piece and things that didn't but overall I think it's effective and the BBC site promoted it as a 'gorgeous' wallpaper so that was very pleasing and flattering. I had a good association with the BBC Dr Who web site, though Shalka - and therefore Feast of the Stone - marked the beginning of the end for most Doctor Who artwork for me as Richard E Grant's ninth Doctor was usurped within weeks by the announcement of the new series, and once the new series aired the plethora of photographs made Doctor Who art in DWM and on the BBC site redundant. However, it was obviously a good thing the series came back although may fleeting dealings with the new DW production office at the time didn't impress.

BBC DW web site staff have moved on since 2003, but fortunately still work in areas associated with Doctor Who, so a couple of years ago I got a opportunity to work on the DVD range, some art for the upcoming Terror of the Autons special features, but until this month that was my last official DW job.

So, I was excited and flattered, but there's been a lot of water under the bridge since this piece, so when I say I was flavour of the month, it's not to be negative about it, just realistic. It came at a time when I was doing a quite a lot, a couple of years later I wasn't.

so what have you done since then and why haven't big finish productions looked at your art? I consider your stuff very realistic and detailed so if they asked you to draw this or that for a cover or some promotional art I'm sure you could have done just that.

Well, there have been Doctor Who things since. Three of the Storybooks, and a later ebook - the last one in 2006. I did some stuff for Big Finish early on. It wasn't Doctor Who, it was a trilogy called Earthsearch. I may have some Doctor Who stuff lined up for the future for a completely different publisher but as I haven't signed a contract I can't go into details yet.

wait I thought well only bbc and big finish could produce doctor who stuff? You don't have to go into details I'm just curious.

Companies/publishers can apply to produce Doctor Who stuff under licence. I should imagine you can get a list of all DW Licencees from the BBC and it would be surprisingly wide. It would cover all products such as Character Options and Airfix etc. The thing I may be working on is for a publisher doing Doctor Who under licence, rekindling a back catalogue.

Thanks. Yes, it was for a story on the BBCs cult web site. I was always disappointed that I couldn't find any decent reference images for Sophie Okonedo (this was 7 or 8 years ago - she's much more famous now and easier to find a load more images for) I reworked it a few months ago for my web site - [link]

All of your art work is awesome. Very Alex Ross. I'm especially fond of the Doctor Who posters.

Thanks. Very nice of you to say so. I only wish I could have found better reference for Sophie Okonedo. She wasn't as well known then (2003) and photo ref was very thin on the ground. Could, probably should, rework it now that I could quite easily find a good shot or screen grab.

Wonderful work! Richard E. Grant is my favorite Doctor, and it sucks that there is so little stuff of him in the role.

I really enjoyed the story that this illustrates. As much as I love Christopher Eccleston (my favorite), I do wish Grant could’ve been the Doctor at one point or another. Well done.
