I can’t believe no one has noticed the fact that GANDALF was in the Christmas ep of Doctor Who…
He was the SNOW.
He was GANDALF THE WHITE.
‘Great Intelligence’ also relates to Gandalf as in him being wise and all-knowing.

WELL DONE EVERYBODY!
January is complete! You have all worked so hard and this project has gone far better than I ever could have imagined! The work produced has been inventive, gorgeous and fun.
Above are my Top 5 in order, and I would like to offer prizes for my Top 3.
#1 The Highlanders by fabledquill
This piece really gets what this project was all about - making beautiful illustrations. In a way, illustrating the actual story was secondary to the artwork. I love how this holds back from illustrating things fully, I love how it cuts off Jamie’s face. This feels like a book cover to the story, and book covers often don’t show the whole figure. I particularly like the way you’ve adapted a missing story. Well done!
You win first dibs on illustrating something for the New Series. Send me an ask with your one choice. Thanks! :)
#2 The Tenth Planet by atarial
This is a more literal piece of fan art than my first choice which is why I gave it second place. However, it is still, obviously, phenemonal and you should be commended for managing to fit in the important elements of the story into a really neat composition. I can’t wait to see how you tackle another story!
You win first dibs on illustrating something for the New Series. However, if you and #1 both request the same story, they will get priority. Therefore, please send me an ask with your TWO choices. Thanks! :)
#3 The Romans by romaaana
This entry always stood out for me and it uses an idea I hope to see in future entries. This was one of the very few to really explore and have fun with the time period in which the story was set. The composition is beautiful and the mosaic style is inspired. I’d love to see more like this!
You win first dibs on illustrating something for the New Series.However, if you, #1 and #2 all request the same story, they will get priority. Therefore, please send me an ask with your THREE choices. Thanks! :)
Those are my top three but I did want to talk about two others I loved and just missed out.
The Sensorites by lydiabutz
This is a great piece of work and was only just pushed out by the pieces above. The reason I like this is that it uses one iconic shot as a basis. Too many of the entries weren’t selective enough, they tried to illustrate every part of the story, every character. Taking one particular shot or element that stays with you is a LOT better, I believe. And this just works so well.
The Edge of Destruction by iwamotoyuri
The illustration of Susan in this image is fantastic! The lighting really captures the mood of the story (by actually making it more dramatic). I like the illustration of Susan so much that I really think the inclusion of her grandfather spoils it. Imagine the image which just Susan, surrounded by darkness… it’d give it a lot more important I think. It’s a great entry and I can’t wait to see what you do for a possible second one, but I reminder to everyone that less is almost always more.
Truthfully though, I’ve been very impressed with what I’ve seen so far and can’t wait for Month 2!

BBC AMERICA is set to premiere An Adventure in Space and Time, a film drama about the creation of Doctor Who, as part of the channel’s celebration of the long-running sci-fi series’ 50th anniversary. Frequent Who scriptwriter Mark Gatiss has already been announced as writer, and he’s also serving as executive producer alongside current Doctor Who execs Steven Moffat andCaroline Skinner. The film is a co-production between BBC AMERICA and BBC Cymru Wales and will air later in 2013.
Doctor Who first hit the BBC airwaves on November 23, 1963, and an impressive cast has been assembled to play the personalities behind the show’s earliest days. David Bradley, best known as Argus Filch in the Harry Potter movies, has taken on the role as actor William Hartnell, who played the series’ very first Doctor. Call the Midwife star Jessica Raine, already cast in the Season 7, Part 2 premiere of Doctor Who, is set to play producer Verity Lambert, and the great Brian Cox (The Bourne Supremacy, Adaptation.) is on board as Sydney Newman, BBC’s then-Head of Drama. Meanwhile, The History Boys‘ Sacha Dhawan will play Waris Hussein, director of Doctor Who‘s premiere episode, “An Unearthly Child.”
