Old Dr. Who Fan Art part 2
Here are 2 more panels from my drawing adaptations of early Dr. Who episodes. The top one is from "The Aztecs," and the lower one is from "The Sensorites," from July-August 1964. (Wikipedia has information on everything.) The Doctor is played by William Hartnell. The story goes that Hartnell was annoyed at having to play a silly science fiction character when he was a Serious Actor but when he found out that his granddaughter adored the show he changed his attitude and played the role until he became too ill to continue, at which point he regenerated as Patrick Troughton.
Both drawings ink on illustration board, 6" x 4", spring 1981.
