The Sixth Doctor (2012) Inks by SteveAndrew The Sixth Doctor (2012) Inks by SteveAndrew
The 6th Doctor and Peri starting a relaxing holiday on... erm, some planet somewhere...

Colin Baker's Doctor got a lot of flack at the time, but he is one of my favourite actors to have played the role. It would have been nice to have seen his Doctor mellow a bit over time as originally intended. I'd love to check out his recent Big Finish audios, as I hear that's exactly what happened. Damn short-sighted mid-80s BBC...

Sadly he was lumbered with some pretty bloody awful stories on TV, although I still love The Two Doctors and Revelation Of The Daleks. Trial Of A Time Lord was a real mess, but gave hints of a deepening friendship with Peri.

Ah, Peri...

Disclaimer: remember, likenesses are really not my strong point, as is clearly proven here! You've been warned: I may colour this someday - but I fear any monitor that displays it might burn out.

So I've got me a 6th Doctor hankering right now. Would you mind if I tried to color this?

Go ahead, help yourself! Be sure to wear some eye-protection - when coloured in, that jacket is hazardous to health. ;-)

Colin Baker is my favourite Doctor. I admit none of his televised stories are the best Who has to offer, but he is my favourite Doctor regardless. And while I haven't any of the Big Finish original stories, I did get their recreation of "The Nightmare Fair" for christmas, and it was a whole lot of fun to listen to.

Your picture makes me think of "Mindwarp" and the blue beaches and pink oceans of Thoros Beta. Weird place, that one.

This is lovely and I agree Colin Baker did not get a fair shake, which is a shame because he really, really wanted to be The Doctor

Thank you! Yeah he was a highly under appreciated Doctor - always the best thing in some fairly rough stories.

I mean he was supposed to go up against the Celestial Toymaker - that takes moxie.

And Peri was always a favorite companion of mine - you did a nice job with her in the picture. They had a nice relationship in The Mysterious Planet and she got almost as bad a send off as Col - and then he wound up with Carrot Juice. UGH.

I have a soft spot for The Two Doctors as well.

Awesome and AWW-some.

Colin is my third favorite Doctor. Yeah, the Big Finish Audios have helped him.
