Unmissable Doctor Who Concept Artwork from Matthew Savage

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.

    That Cyberman is BEAUTIFUL!!! Much better, in my opinion, than the ones we got in 2006!

    I have to agree, that Cyberman really has something. It has a feel of, “you don’t want to know what is underneath.” about it.

    That is the look Neil Gaiman’s Cybermen should have had.

    That Cyberman… wow, just wow. So much better than what we’ve seen so far and a brilliant nod to Tenth Planet. They would have been properly scary and the idea of being bolted together… stunning.

    That is brilliant. I realy think the series has gone wrong with the Cybermen. They’re not scary because they’re robots, it’s the fact there’s people inside. Get away from the ultra-shiny Iron Man suits and give us that shiver.
