A Path Not Taken...

In the End of Time, lots of moments stuck out for me; the Doctor going to meet the Nurse's granddaughter was one. I just thought it was a particularly heartbreaking moment. As a character we all see the Doctor as a lonely wanderer and for me one of the biggest sacrifices he made was choosing that lonely life instead of one filled with happiness with Nurse Redfern.

Anyway, back to the drawing ;)
Took awhile this one but I had great pleasure in doing it. Despite the lack of eyes, getting the faces right was tricky! It was hard to make them look like they were merely looking at the baby, that they weren't asleep :P ;)
Really enjoyed drawing it as a composition and as a challenge as there were a lots of elements for me to deal with.

Materials used: pencils 2H, 2B, Mechanical pencil, 9B, blending stump, cotton buds, tissues, kneadable eraser, eraser

Doctor Who is copyright BBC

Would love to hear your comments as ever!
Thanks everyone :) :hug:

that should be cool, hopefully they air them on BBC America the next day like they did for the end of time, sucked having to wait 6+ months for it to air in the US.

Oh that would really suck! Thankfully I get to watch them live! I really appreciate being able to do that! I missed most of series 3 being shown because I was away and it was a pain to have to wait for the DVD!

Father's Day is a wonderful episode too. He's a very good writer. I think it's him that;s writing a vampire story for the new series, I think!!!

I looked at this and I cried. It's so moving. It must be hard, living as a lonely angel. Beautifully done. You captured it wonderfully.
