Doctor Who: The Waters of Mars by onegemini Doctor Who: The Waters of Mars by onegemini
"Doctor Who: The Waters of Mars", July, 2009. Digital drawing in Photoshop.

Full view.

UPDATE: On November 19th, 2009, I sent current Doctor Who composer Murray Gold a link to this image via Twitter, and he said it was "very cool," so it can't be all bad, right? ;)

Note: Heard in buzzings around the intertubes that this is apparently a cover for a Waters of Mars adaptation comic. IT IS NOT. This is nothing more than a piece of practice art from me. IDW, the stateside publisher of Doctor Who comic books doesn't adapt episodes, and has no plans to adapt WoM, and Doctor Who Magazine in the UK doesn't do adaptations either (they have plenty of original material). Okay? Okay.

Need to keep in practice, so here's a Tenth Doctor piece in anticipation of the upcoming (November) Doctor Who special, "The Waters of Mars."

Based on imagery from the trailer, and other leaked and pre-release images.

at the end its really sad *SPOILERS* as the woman with the gun next to the doctor (forget her name) as she kills herself AND THEN the doctor is visited by the ood who say his song is song  is nearly over (which pretty much means hes going to die soon) it made me cry.

I've seen the episode. ;) I've talked with Phil Ford about the episode. He owns a print of this image.

In my opinion, one of the best episodes ever! And the scariest... And it was beautiful too.

You mean Marvin the Martain from the Bugs Bunny cartoons? Yeah, I'd have no reason to put him in a Who fancomic. Even a Mars one.

I'll leave that to those who like to Photoshop "funny" things into the Curiosity images.

I gave a copy of this image to the writer, Phil Ford. We discussed it for a bit, and he told me that little girl and her parents had come up to him earlier that day. The parents told him that the little girl had nightmares because of that episode. He said to me, "is it so wrong I take so much delight in that?" ;)

That was a good episode. It was a huge character development point for post-war Doctor. I wanted to slap him and tell him to screw his head back on straight. As the last of the Time Lords he no doubt has to constantly resist the temptation to deify himself, and that reality of what a Time Lord is--what HE is--really came out in this episode. It is, in my opinion, the Doctor's darkest side. The side that could make him in every way like Rassilon--a hero, a legend of old, a savior...a demon, an insane man, a master manipulator and destroyer.

Part of the reason I love Doctor Who is the complexity of the character. Regeneration has no effect on that aspect, either. He's the same man. He always has been.

Uh-huh. Y'know I didn't write the episode, just drew the picture. ;)

I'll let Phil Ford know that you like the ep next time I see him. Probably next year.

The Doctor rather scared me in this episode. I was seriously fearful that he had taken up the air of the Time Lords as they fought their final battles in the Last Great Time War, as they must have done while stewing in their own paranoia, hate, and death.

Despite my rampant pessimism, this is another great piece by a great artist! :D

I know, right? The water zombies didn't scare me nearly as much as the Doctor did in the last ten or so minutes of that episode. Excellent writing on this one.

So, while I was waiting for this to load on my slow computer, I drank some water. It loaded while I was still drinking.

Creepy. And not the best timing. Or, maybe the best. :lol:

Nice. :)

More than a few times since then. He's a really nice (if not delightfully odd) guy. Hopefully will meet up with him at New York Comic Con (during or after) so I can give him some free Who comics (he's been very supportive of my work on the title).

Maybe he'll sign on for Dragon Con last minute...
Probably not. XD

And I'm not that lucky - he really will reply to most any Tweet to him. He's fun like that. I was lucky to get Felicia Day to respond to my Tweets, as she has near 2 million followers - Murray (with a little over 2000) is a somewhat fortunate thing. ;)

New York Comic Con is the second largest con in the nation behind San Diego (which is slowly veering away from comics altogether).

And that's just the big one. NYC hosts probably four or five comic and related conventions a year, not all as big as NYCC, but bigger than most.

Murray Gold lives (part of the time) in NYCC, so it's not out of his way (though he has gone out to SDCC before), so yeah, Dragon Con is out of the question. If he were to go to NYCC, he'd probably just go for a few hours, and not as a guest.
