The Myth Makers by Harnois75 The Myth Makers by Harnois75
From the Doctor Who Story - The Mythmakers (1965) in which the Doctor and his companions find themselves embroiled in the Trojan wars. The Doctor has to come up with a way of getting into the city and he can only think of one thing. Is there a Doctor in the horse?

Wanted to convey the epic scale of some of these Hartnell stories, you need to hear the beating of celebratory drums and imagine a shimmer of heat over the city, and maybe conjur up the budget of Kingdom of Heaven and Ridley Scott's eye. That was the aim anyway.

Gouache and Paint Shop. More details on my web site: www.daryljoyce.co.uk

You've captured the scope of Doctor Who in all your artwork of DW!

That's cool. I like the old movie poster feel of the angles.

Sweeeeeeeeeeet. This makes me want to see what you'd do with the Aztecs. And even though you've already kinda covered the Tribe of Gum, I've always thought the image of the TARDIS crew wielding flaming skulls would make for a brilliant painting.

I've got sketches for The Aztecs - chiefly Ian's ultimate battle with Ixta atop the temple, plus the blood sacrifice from the opening episode. I've also got a sketch of the flaming skulls and the tribe recoiling in horror, plus Barbara and Susan being lead to the guillotine, The Doctor and Susan climbing the drain, Katarina being sucked into space, Ben being attacked by a War Machine etc etc. Tons of Hartnell era stuff on the way.

I should've known you'd already be on all of that. :D It all sounds brilliant- can't wait. The discovery of the Monoid statue in "The Ark" would be another good one. And I'd also love to see the Celestial Toyroom done justice- something surreal in a Winsor-McCay-meets-Rene-Magritte kinda way. But hey, I'll take what I can get. ;)

Hmmm... Well the way this is going, I'm tempted to suggest something filthy involving Susan or Vicki (or both). But I won't. :D

The actual episodes are lost, though the audio of the TV recordings exists. I'm sure you could find the audio for download. There's also an audio book of the novelisation.
