People have been asking me for years if I'll ever finish my old "lost project", THE DOCTOR & I, and the answer is... no, probably not.  BUT I do still have two more parts scripted which've been sitting "in the vault" for years, and I've decided it's finally time to publish those (and maybe there'll even be an outlined "reconstruction" of how it would've ended, if it gets enough response). ;)  So for those who asked for it, here ya go:…


Paul Hanley
Artist | Professional
United States
Stop-motion movie-maker, commercial artist, and sort-of-pro comic artist. I've done official work for Godzilla and Judge Dredd (for IDW Comics), Firefly (Toy Vault Inc.) and Doctor Who (Titan Comics and the game "Doctor Who Legacy" from Tiny Rebel Games). I'm also known for work on Doctor Who sort-of spinoff character Iris Wildthyme in her various media appearances (via Obverse Books and Big Finish Productions audio dramas).

For those wondering- yes, I do some commissions from time to time- when the money and subject matter is right. I'm not one of those artists who'll draw Power Girl high-kicking Lady Death for X amount of $ (well, unless it's a VERY big X), but when it's a cool project- absolutely! I usually don't do it in a way where someone just throws an idea at me and I draw it exactly- I usually prefer to "cook up" an idea between me and the commissioner (otherwise, it's too much like "real" work). I'm willing to hear anything out, though!

Price-wise, it's all over the place. It all depends on size, complexity, effort, etc. Just keep in mind, I don't take on anything for less than $60, as it's just not worth it on a time/ money basis.

I don't do fanzines or other non-paying gigs. Sorry.

Current Residence: the outskirts of Austin, Texas (in Leatherface Country)
Favourite genre of music: Punk (up until about '84)

Loving the work Paul (and still got the fingers crossed for a female Doctor in 2018). Just thinking about your tumblr companion series being up to 190 today and I don't have the in depth cross platform knowledge that you seem to have. Where do you reckon you are? Close to the end, over halfway? What's your best guess for a final number?

Interesting question.  So I just checked my list and did a quick count- there's 94 names on it (some are new or alternate versions of characters I've already covered, mind).  Given how frequently new characters pop up in comics and so on, it's not inconceivable this thing may hit #300 by the time it's "finished".  Oy vey. :D  But keep in mind some of that stuff may get cut- I have some very extraneous (to the Doctor) characters like Torchwood, the Counter-Measures team and the cast of the modern UNIT audio series on there.  I may actually get tired of this before I get to them. ;)

But as far as the Doctors/ companions pics (which is mainly what I make them for)- I'm almost finished with the War and 3rd Doctor ones.  That'll leave Seven, Eleven, Twelve (who I was purposely keeping toward the end since major additions may be needed) and maybe Cushing.  So as far as that goes, I AM over halfway now.  There's also a vague chance I might do revised ones for Troughton and McGann (working mostly from stuff that's already drawn).  We'll see how energetic I still am about that idea when the time comes though.

Oh yeah, hadn't clicked that there wasn't a full Pertwee piece out yet. I imagine McCoy is gonna be a big piece. Well best of luck and just a quick thanks for all the continued great work and for introducing me to some interesting 'new' characters I didn't know much about. And as a cheeky little planting-a-seed-in-your-brain, how about a Time Lord High Council piece using all your Gallifreyan characters. Best J.

What's your take on the rumor that Archie's Sonic series is on the way to cancellation (and the property might end up at IDW subsequently)?
PaulHanley Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2017  Professional
Absolutely no idea- I'm not a Sonic fan and only an occasional freelancer for IDW.  Even if I did know something, it wouldn't be appropriate to comment (and that's not some sly Francis Urquhart type implication- I really don't know).
