David Collings as the Doctor by PaulHanley David Collings as the Doctor by PaulHanley
Doctor Who sketch card #10
2.5" x 3.5" ink on Bristol.

David Collings as the Doctor from the Big Finish audio play "Full Fathom Five". This older Doctor, trapped on Earth by circumstance, was a ruthless pragmatist. Though still acting out of interest for the greater good, this Doctor believed that the end justified the means- and was willing to commit acts unthinkable to his predecessors...

"One down. I wonder how many lives this bastard has left."

I haven't read the story, but I like this! The idea of him gives me an idea of if the 9th Doctor was much more affected by the Time War. Much so that he became something like this...And after all these ideas in my head I feel like I should go right Doctor Who fanfiction...welp, see ya later XD

Did you know that Big Finish had published a short story called "Sustainable Energy" featuring the David Collings' Doctor. It was set in 2040, while he was stranded on Earth, and gave a description of his appearance. Apparently, he wore a midnight blue velvet jacket, a panama hat and had long dark hair with wisps of red. I just thought I'd tell you, in case you ever thought of making another artwork based in his Doctor. I, for one, think Collings' Doctor was an extraordinary idea, very well performed by David Collings.

I knew the story existed, but never read it.  Didn't know it provided a description- thanks!  I figure my depiction's close enough (albeit no hat and a somewhat lighter color scheme), but maybe I'll update it slightly one day. ;)  I don't suppose they describe his gun, by any chance?  I used a Walther P38 (seemed to suit him- it's a classic "bad guy" gun).

And yeah- he was great. :)

As far as I can remember, the Doctor doesn't carry a gun in that story, but he does act pretty ruthlessly in other ways. I think the gun was just something he took from Lee to dispatch him, but the Walther P38 suits this Doctor, in an ironically unDoctorish way.

Even hearing that makes me want to come up with a sequel or epilogue of what happened next, maybe the timelords come for him or a renegade like the meddling monk or a made up one appears and helps resolve the situation in a more doctor or timelord way.

I hope so- b/c she's already got the "first option" rights to buy it! :D

Which reminds me, I need to give Klinka a shout-out for hooking me up with a ton of great photo ref for Collings. I wound up basing the pic on an screencap of him in a TV version of Julius Caesar. Seemed appropriate!

Ha ha awesome! I consider you the world's ultimate David Collings authority (yes, even over Collings himself :D ), so if it passes your test I think that's definitive proof I suceeded. :)

I can just imagine the Sixth Doctor seeing this happening, then charging in to take him down. It's OBVIOUSLY the Valeyard! (To him, anyway ;) )

Totally. If there was ever a "missing link" between the Valeyard and the Doctor we know and love, it's the "Full Fathom" Doctor.

Though actually, after recent developments, I'm beginning to think #10 might be the missing link! :omg:

However hard Ten might be, remember what was said about the Valeyard, about how he was the collected evil of the Doctor all the way up until his Twelfth incarnation..?

No wonder the Master was terrified of him, enough to blow the whistle to the Time Lords!

(Includes the 'dark, hard edge' of ALL of the Doctors, distilled. Yeek.)

Like the first he would always be convinced that he is in the right. That would include the stubbornness and impatience of the third without inhabitations of any kind. Add the egotism and instability of the sixth, coupled with the manipulative and secretive nature of the seventh...why not include the habit of enjoying danger like the second and fourth but remove his pickiness as to who is the one causing the danger...taking a leaf out of the tenth's book, he would give no second chances...don't forget the sadness and anger he felt as number nine as well.

Shall I tell you what that formula you suggested would create? A monster...the worst ever...and you know what else? Just look at all the stuff he was able to accomplish when he was good. Scary thought huh...?

Yet funnily enough, I really wan't "Full Fathom Five" right about now...XD
