Doctor Her by cluedog Doctor Her by cluedog
Dating back to the 70's, there was always speculation that the Doctor, from the great sci-fi series "Doctor Who" would regenerate into a woman.

In this commissioned piece, I did a sort of "What If". What if, in his 12th Regeneration, the Doctor regenerated into an Asian woman. Considering the dearth of Asians in the history of "Doctor Who", it seems reasonable, does it not?

Anyhoo, I love Who, particularly that Tom Baker fellow.

You were right, but the BBC chickened out, and created Romanadvoratrelundar, played by Mary Tamm, instead.

"Well this is new, all gender-flopped. Luckily I got all of Romana's clothes lying abo... Wait not just gender an entire new regional archetype of human! Now this is going to be an interesting incarnation. So... where to begin... Starship Japan... Beijing of 938... San Fransisco of 1870... So many options..."

Seeing this again, i can't help but think of the (beautiful!) lead singer of Yosei Teikoku.

Great and sketch and intriguing concept. I like the look on her face,it's like she's going to say what the doctor or 007 themselves had once said: "You were expecting someone else?"

Good idea for speculation! Though I doubt she could be called "Grandfather" anymore :D Grand work :D

I would love to see the Doctor as an Asian-opposed to being ginger. Plus, I love how you remodeled the logo. :)

It would be an interesting change. I can't take credit for the logo, though. I drew it by hand but it's actually a reproduction of the new "Doctor Who" logo as seen in Japan.

I started the series with the one with rose so i have never seen the earlier who's but want to see them when i get the chance.

Thank you so much! It was truly fun to draw.

I'm a huge fan of the old series but the new one is excellent as well. I particularly loved the episode where Rose and the Doctor met Sarah Jane and K-9.

You can see Himeji Castle in most of films and series of medieval Japan; the more famous are some of Kurosawa films, or the old serie "Shogun". It is because is one of the very few castle reconstructed after WW2.
So, It was easy to advice of that. And I remember the castle (aided with my own photo album, of course).
I supose It is easy to find more images of the castle in internet, but if not, and you need some of them in the future, I can scan a few (or some postal cards; the photographer of them are much better than me =p)

Totally have fallen in love with Dr. Who and I love the idea of a female Doctor, though I must confess I would have loved to have seen Donna Noble as the Doctor. That woman right there cracked me and then would have me crying in the next scene. She is nutty! Great work by the by!! I really love your inks, they are just beautiful. I have been MIA for a while, but it's nice to be catching up and seeing all of your gorgeous artwork!!

First, I'm glad to hear from you. It really has been a while but I can see you've been quite busy. Never a bad thing, that, especially when it relates to art.

I appreciate all the kind comments. The fellow who commissioned this piece wanted to see a cute Asian style Doctor, which I thought was a fairly novel concept. It was fun (albeit a pain) to draw the TARDIS. I love Doctor Who immensely (especially the older series), so it was a pleasure doing this drawing. I almost threw in K-9 into the drawing but wasn't sure why he'd be hanging around this Doctor incarnation, so I decided not to. Considering how the Doctor, here, changed into a Japanese girl, maybe I should have made it an AIBO, instead. :)
