New pieces of artwork from former Doctor Who concept artist Matthew Savage have wormed their way on to the internet… And they’re very, very pretty.
Savage, who worked on the show from 2005 until 2010, has also designed for Hollywood blockbusters such as The Dark Knight and Les Miserables, but his Doctor Who pieces are arguably the most exciting. His collection includes some alternative designs for the TARDIS console room, one of which he describes as a “Victorian steam punk” interior, with a young Fourth Doctor positioned at the controls. There are also some fascinating Cybermen concepts, heavily inspired by the ‘classic era’ monsters from The Wheel in Space, plus a rather awesome ‘Hollywood’ version of the Time Lord Omega.
There is a wealth of imagery available on Matt’s blog, and it’s well worth taking ten minutes out of your day to have a look; his artwork provides a fascinating insight into how the show could have looked if some of his more ambitious designs had come into fruition.
