The First Eleven Doctors As Time Ladies
Some crazed soul on Tumblr (Gladys S of Rockets Surgery) has turned her active imagination and love of Doctor Who to drawing. To add fuel to the continuing fire of “can there be a female Doctor?” arguments, she’s depicted the first 11 as women to see how it would’ve turned out.
The results are…intriguing, to say the least.
Some of the Doctors look a bit odd (Seven’s appearance is reminiscent of the time when Due South‘s Benton Fraser was ‘forced’ to dress in drag for an episode) but the whole collection is well worth a look and she’s got other Doctor Who fan art on her Tumblr. For what it’s worth, she’s captured the “prim and proper” look that one might associate with the First Doctor.
Which is your favourite? Do any of these illustrations persuade you that a lady Doctor could work?
