When The Past Becomes The Present

The Inspiration:

(freehand and painted in oils)

Inspired by Mr David Metcalfe who was the leader of the Doctor Who group called The Grand Order Of The Time Lords’ based in L.ancashire UK. around 1997.

David had the idea of bringing the 7th and 8th Doctor’s together in one image.

The 7th Doctor fighting for his life, with memories of previous adventures going through his mind.

He regenerates into the 8th Doctor, who we see in the Doctor Who movie, first shown in 1996, played by Paul McGann. A portrayal I enjoyed very much.

This image was used as part of a Doctor Who (Legends Who’s Who) Jigsaw Puzzle published and licensed by K D Publishing in 2007.
