‘Dr Who Colouring Book"
If there is one thing that brings me back to being a kid, it's early seventies Doctor Who especially Jon Pertwee era stuff, he was my Doctor growing up and I both respected and kind of feared him.
Later in life I'd get to meet the guy and let me tell you, he was the nicest, most generous, celebrity I've ever met.
I was delighted to find scans of this book on teh interwebs, some kind soul had scanned this (probably rare) item so all could see.
This book is a refreshing break from the last bunch of misery we've had on CBT, mostly because it's beautifully rendered and has no story. It's just a series of charming illustrations of what appears to be Pertwee's second season.
Hai Keeba! The Doctor showed that wookie. A beautiful illustration of what set the Pertwee era apart, his Doctor had a flash of James Bond.
I think it's funny the author took the photo from the Radio Times cover and put the Doctor underwater.
The artist seems really good at capturing likeness, he even seems to get Katy Manning's features well.
Ah, big honking 70s computers...
Brigadier Lethbridge Stuart, a character that should have appeared on the new series by now..
Just some of the random sci fi nonsense included here, for the most part the adventures the Doctor has are all plausible for the series. Much of the planets he visits look like quarries in the UK and the aliens (sorry none of his TV baddies appear) look like the kind of stuff that would plague the Doctor in the early 70s.
Now that I've had a taste of this thing, I kind of want it...
If you have a colouring book you'd like to guest review, I'd like to hear from you!
