Remake/Remodel: 13th Doctor.

Over on Whitechapel, the current Remake/Remodel challenge is to design the 13th Doctor. To be honest, I'd really like to see an older Doctor lead one of the revival series. Back when they were still looking for an 11, I was hoping they'd cast someone like Bill Nighy (I mean, Nighy ended up in the last series anyway, which was cool).

This character isn't exactly meant to be Bill Nighy, though he was my original inspiration. I'm thinking... Older, even more flamboyant (I imagine his outfit changes colors every episode but it remains in that combination). Flashy, a little snarkier than the other guys. Maybe the Doctor feels the need to turn up the energy when he finds himself in an older body. Nighy, specifically, is twice as old as the current Doctor but he still has an incredible energy and way of carrying himself that is immensely entertaining. Similar snake-like movement and posture to, say, Jarvis Cocker.

... Okay, I really like Bill Nighy. In other news: This comes into your room and watches you sleep at night, before burrowing into your ear.

  1. The first thing I thought when I saw this pic was: that looks like Bill Nighy crossed with Jarvis Cocker! Love it!

  6. I don't know if you would remember this show but your design sort of reminds me of a younger version of Jay Sherman's father off of "The Critic"

    Which totally makes me want to see a Dr. Who like that.
