Mark Gatiss as the Doctor by PaulHanley Mark Gatiss as the Doctor by PaulHanley
"You're bad. What do you want me to do about it?"

The great Mark Gatiss as the Doctor from BBC2's "Doctor Who Night" back in 1999: [link] Like his predecessors, this Doctor fought the good fight for justice and universal harmony- but not so much on bank holidays. His lackadaisical attitude was forgiveable though, as his enemies were rather crap.

SHAMLESS PLUG: I've got an original webcomic running on DA now. Nothing to do with Who, but if ya like my work, please give it a look: [link]

I would love to know if that monocle does anything "sonic-y"

"He has the air of a celebrity at a Comic Con who wants to politely keep the line moving..." - The Doctor & I.

Very interesting characterisation of the Doctor. It would've been good to hear him on an Unbound audio. And ginger... at last!

Great writer, and an interesting looking Doctor. His costume reflects Matt Smith's Season 33b costume and Paul McGann's TV Movie costume.

Any chance of drawing Mark Gatiss as Jon Pertwee (An Adventure In Space And Time)

I didn't know Mark Gatiss played a version of the Doctor! Makes him all the more awesome.

In my headcannon this Doctor is the next regeneration of the Nick Briggs Doctor

Love this! He plays an incredible Mycroft, and I was curious if he had any other roles in front of the camera. The skit was hilarious! :P Your coloring and details are impeccable, and I love in expression on his face. Well done, chap! (I almost said "old sport." Wrong country, wrong century. :P)

agreed, best Mycroft so far but not as the Doctor, though. I did remenber there was another pardoy of the Doctor few years ago.

Nicely done. One of my favourite 'extra' Doctors, even if he only lasted a few minutes. I like to think that perhaps he regenerated into the Rowan Atkinson Doctor.

I thought it was interesting how Gatiss went for an even earlier look for his Doctor as a sort of Darcy-esque Regency dandy, almost poking fun at people thinking he has to have an anachronistic dress sense with one foot stuck permanently in Hollywood Victoriana. I will say that while I'm not the biggest fan of Gatiss' Who scripts, his performance in "The Lazarus Experiment" was superb and the man has earned my undying respect for "Sherlock".

AMAZING I think he would make a great Doctor. Brilliant :D

Mark Gatiss NEEDS to be a proper Doctor at some stage, he just does, why does it make so much sense in my mind? lol

Ohhh, I love that clip! And this is great!

How did I miss that video?! hahaha

Mark Gatiss is an awesome actor, and that video rocks!
Sadly, though, he seems to have been plagued by the least interesting storylines on the new series...

Nice drawing, also. Interesting choice of colors, since the original video is in black and white.
PaulHanley Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2010  Professional
Actually, I put off doing this pic for a long time b/c I couldn't find good photo ref for the colors! I just found an old issue of DWM that had some though,thank god.

And yep- Gatiss rocks. Even without League of Gentlemen, he's maybe the only actor who's played the Doctor AND the Master (in Sympathy for the Devil), not to mention he wrote a small stack of well-regarded DW novels and audio plays. He seems to pop up in about 50% of the interesting things that come out of the UK- Sherlock; Jekyll; Spaced; Little Britain; Edgar Wright's "Don't!" trailer for Grindhouse... he even got to play ping pong with Scarlett Johansson in Match Point. The dude's everywhere. Pretty good work for a guy who started off as skinny DW geek making fan films. :)

He does seem to have had lousy luck with his Who TV scripts- though I'll defend Unquiet Dead to the death. I wasn't a big fan of Rose and End of the World, but Dead restored my faith that it could still be something resembling the show I used to love. Idiot's Lantern is more of a noble failure- it's got a great setting and some great bits, but the villain didn't quite work. Victory of the Daleks' problem is mostly bad pacing- it really feels like a solid two-parter that got hacked into a one-off- there's so much unused potential in the idea of Daleks in a WWII setting. Still, I wonder if it all has to do with the DW production system, where writers are kind of at the mercy of what the script editor/ producers want. I actually kinda wonder if Gattis might be the guy who takes over when Moffat leaves. I think he's the only Series 1 writer other than Moffat that's still around regularly, and the guy does have experience as a showrunner...
Eddy-S Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2010  Hobbyist Writer
Indeed I didn't like Rose. And to be honest, the few ads for Doctor Who that I saw at the time on a cable TV channel here on Brazil didn't improve much what I think about that episode hahaha

I didn't watch the 2005 season on the correct order, since I didn't know the original series (besides being Brazilian, I'm young - turning 18 tomorrow) and those ads were HORRIBLE, so I saw Father's Day before The Unquiet Dead, and that was the episode that drew me in. Time travel, paradoxes and monsters with scythes for tails? Epic win!
