Thoughts on my art collection

The Sixth Doctor by Roger Langridge

This piece appeared in Doctor Who Magazine 363, and I think is entitled “Too Many Colins”. Not something that is possible! I really enjoyed Colin Baker’s portrayal of The Doctor. I don’t know if I knew at the time that the plan was to gradually knock off the rough edges, but I do like the idea of a development for the character. I think the way this has developed in the Big Finish audios has been really well realised, as well as showing that an older companion (Evelyn) can work when written well. I think Baker is the Doctor that has been the biggest success for me as regards Big Finish, and I wish we could have seen more of him on TV.

There’s not really much to say about Roger Langridge – it’s obvious he is a brilliant artist, with a gift for capturing character.  His work on The Muppets comic is superb, as is his Fred the Clown.

Here is the colour version, as printed in the magazine

I urge you to pop along to his website, and just enjoy the vast amount of art that is there,
