The First Doctor by frasierdalek The First Doctor by frasierdalek
-Doctor Who in Sculpture: 1963 to 2013-

Seeing as everybody is doing Doctor Who tributes to mark the programme’s 50th Anniversary this November, I thought I’d knock something up to pay tribute in my own way. Seeing as it’s a programme I have tremendous affection for.

And seeing as today is also William Hartnell’s birthday, it felt a good day to start.

A sculpt of William Hartnell.
Taken me years to finish it and I think it works reasonably well. Arguably better in black and white.

I like black and white, it covers a multitude of sins.

I wanted to capture Hartnell’s whimsical side, a facet of his Doctor which usually gets over-looked, described usually as a grumpy crotchety old man, as a “frail-looking but wiry and tough as an old turkey”, well, that he was, but he also had a wonderful childish, impish excitement which would shine through at times.

The First Doctor’s tenure lasted from 1963 to 1966.

I shall upload a Troughton Tribute next month and shall continue as such up to November, a Doctor-a-Month as it were.
Perhaps even a few little deviations along the way.

I hope it meets with your approval.

They are quite good.  An old friend of mine used to sculpt heads on apples, then paint, etc. on them after thy dried out.
