Sharaz Jek sketch card by PaulHanley Sharaz Jek sketch card by PaulHanley
Doctor Who sketch card #11
2.5" x 3.5" ink on Bristol.

One of the more interesting humans the Doctor has encountered in his travels, Sharaz Jek. I hesitate to call him a "villain"- 'cuz anyone who's seen "Caves of Androzani" knows the real villains were Morgus and Stotzie.

As unlikely as it sounds, supposedly David Bowie was approached to play him. Wouldn't that have been something!

Now that I've actually seen Caves of Androzani, I can properly appreciate this. I LOVED Jek, despite him being a total creeper (I even called him "BDSM-man" for most of my commentary on the story). There was something really engaging about that whole Phantom of the Opera deal he had going there. And I agree, I wouldn't call him a villain, although it took me until the last episode to consider him one of the good guys. You certainly captured his intensity well here, especially impressive for a character whose face is mostly covered.

I've not seen that one :( I think I may need to get sky or buy a lot of dvds. Fantastic drawing, i could actually imagine David Bowie wearing that.

'captures the menace of the character superbly.

Thanks, Gary! It's weird, Androzani and Revelation of the Daleks are probably my two favorite Who stories. I've never done much with 'em art-wise though, b/c well, they're kinda perfect (Magma Beast aside) and it's a little intimidating to try to do something that does 'em justice. So getting props for this one means a lot. :)

You should redraw the magma beast to make it look menacing! It's the only thing that detracts from Androzani.
