Thoughts on my art collection

Wirrn! by Adrian Salmon

The Ark in Space is Classic Who at its best. The story, acting, design, pretty much everything came together to create stories that 40 years later still hold up, and can still capture the imagination of my young son. Arguably, the model shot of the Wirrn swarming at the end isn’t that effective (however, it doesn’t get the same negative press as the rat in Talons for some reason).

Ade has given us some pretty mean looking Wirrn for this Time Team piece, helped no end by his usual strong use of blacks, and had the ones on TV been as mean looking as these, they would definitely have added to my nightmares. Ark is one of only three Doctor Who stories that actually gave me nightmares, and I’ll add the other two Time Teams over the next two posts.
