The Infinite Doctor- the annotated version! by PaulHanley The Infinite Doctor- the annotated version! by PaulHanley
Due to popular demand, here's a guide to my recent pic.

The Infinite Doctor by PaulHanley


A few things I should mention:

-People griping about this omission or that are kinda missing the point of the title "infinite".  This is just a sliver of the various forms of the Doctor out there.  It's more a celebration of what he (or she) could be (at least so far) than any individual fan's idea of what the Doctor "is".

-For the sake of my own sanity, I downplayed spoof versions except for the most famous ones, and mostly stayed away from fan creations (like the "Devious" Doctor), alternate timeline versions ("Jubilee", "Blood Heat", etc), clones ("Project: Lazarus", "Survivors in Space"), androids ("The Android Invasion", "The Chase", "The Wedding of River Song"), dopplegangers ("The Enemy of the World", "The Massacre"), just-gangers ("The Rebel Flesh"), false Doctors ("The Next Doctor"), impostors ("The One Doctor"), disguises (Mr. Popplewick from "The Ultimate Foe"), brain-swaps (Amy Pond in IDW Comics) and "analogue" versions (Dr. Whooves, Inspector Spacetime, Professor Gamble, the Stranger, the Foot Doctor, etc, etc...).  

So with that in mind, here's what did make it in...


1) Richard Griffiths- series producer John Nathan-Turner's hypothetical choice for the 8th Doctor, as illustrated by the late Phil Bevan in Doctor Who Magazine #255.

2) The imposing and mysterious version of the First Doctor from Japanese publisher Hayakawa Bunko's translated edition of the book "Doctor Who in an Exciting Adventure with the Daleks", as depicted in numerous illustrations by Michiaki Sato: www.personal.leeds.ac.uk/~ecl6…   Not pictured here is another Hayakawa Doctor who appeared in four translations of the Third Doctor's adventures.  His look was more similar to his respective Doctor (though, interestingly, he sometimes wore a Holmesian deerstalker cap).

3) David Banks, a.k.a. "The Greenpeace Doctor" (named for his t-shirt).  The former Cyberleader was Jon Pertwee's co-star and understudy in the stage play "The Ultimate Adventure" and had to fill in for a few performances when Pertwee fell ill.  images.wikia.com/tardis/images…

4) Graeme Harper (future director of many Classic and New Series episodes) as one of the faces glimpsed during the mind-bending battle from "The Brain of Morbius": youtu.be/7y8uNMPJfwQ   Though they were pretty much retconned down the road, these were almost certainly intended as previously-unknown past lives of the Doctor.  Fans generally deride the idea of these Doctors now, as the notion of pulling some secret past incarnation out of nowhere is a very dirty trick and should never, ever happen again.  ;)

5) Arabella Weir as the alternative Doctor from "Exile", part of the Big Finish audio series "Doctor Who: Unbound".  Made to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the show, each play dealt with a different "What if" scenario.  All are available from Big Finish (at pretty reasonable prices) here: bigfinish.com/ranges/released/…

6) "Unbound" Doctor Ian Brooker, who appears very, very briefly at the end of the story "Full Fathom Five".

7) Most of the obscured Doctors in the picture shouldn't be read into too much, but that's Paul McGann's chin, so if it makes you feel better, you can believe that this is the McGann-ish Doctor from Lance Parkin's novel "The Infinity Doctors": en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Infi…

8) Alternative 4th Doctor Trevor Martin, from the stage play "Doctor Who and the Seven Keys to Doomsday": en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seven_Ke…

9) The Other- a mysterious and complicated figure from the Doctor's past.  Vaguely hinted at in the 7th Doctor's TV stories, the idea was expanded on in the novelization of "Remembrance of the Daleks" and several of the 90s novels released by Virgin Publishing. tardis.wikia.com/wiki/The_Othe…

10) "Morbius Doctor" (and legendary show author/ script editor) Robert Holmes.  Smoking a pipe, of course.

11) The 42nd Doctor (based on actor Ian Richardson), who appeared in "Valeyard of the Daleks"  a scrapped epilogue from Lance Parkin's novel "The Dying Days": lanceparkin.wordpress.com/2013…   It depicted a well-adjusted and married Doctor enjoying semi-retirement.  It was probably cut because meeting a far-off future retired Doctor, and especially a married Doctor, would never, ever happen in the actual TV series. ;)

12) The Watcher- a peculiar manifestation of the Doctor encountered in the 4th Doctor's final story, "Logopolis"

13) Derek Jacobi  as the troubled and semi-delusional author from the "Doctor Who: Unbound" story "Deadline".

14) "Morbius Battle Doctor" George Gallacio.

15) Jon Culshaw's famous send-up of the 4th Doctor from various episodes of the radio & TV series "Dead Ringers": youtu.be/Q88kt_Vtyl4 Culshaw eventually voiced the 4th Doctor somewhat more canonically in the audio play "The Kingmaker": bigfinish.com/releases/v/the-k…

16) My own fan-fabrication, the 12th Doctor as played by actress Ruth WIlson: fav.me/d67rw8g  (Hey, you got a problem with it, go draw your own picture.)  ;)

17) Revered show producer Philip Hinchcliffe as one of the Morbius Battle Doctors.

18)  Show director Christopher Barry (R.I.P.) as one of the Morbius Doctors.

19) "Unbound" Doctor Geoffrey Bayldon- an alternative First Doctor from the stories "Auld Mortality" and "A Storm of Angels".

20) Richard Hurndall as the First Doctor ("The Five Doctors").

21) Again, the obscured faces shouldn't be read into too much- but that's the chin of alternative "Doctor" Alex McQueen, from the excellent audio series "UNIT: Dominion": bigfinish.com/releases/v/docto…

22) Barbara Benedetti as the alternative 7th Doctor from various fan-films made by Seattle International Films from 1984-1988: youtu.be/23Y53bgZyhE

23) Muldwych, an elderly Time Lord hermit from the 90s novels "Birthright" and "Happy Endings".  Heavily implied to be the Doctor from a far-off future.

24) "Morbius Doctor" Chris Baker.

25) The Valeyard (Michael Jayston), the Doctor's evil future incarnation first encountered in "The Trial of a Time Lord" (and later numerous books, audio plays, etc): youtu.be/Y2INBe_qZFo   Fans frequently misattribute him as being a Watcher-like "half" incarnation that had to occur between the 12th and 13th lives, due to the Master's statement that he originates from a point somewhere between the Doctor's "12th and final incarnation".  Given recent developments in the Doctor's life, that makes the Valeyard's exact nature (and estimated time of arrival) more nebulous than ever.  But his recent name-drop by the Great Intelligence at Trenzalore indicates he's still very much on the way...

26) The first of the two Doctors portrayed in various trading cards produced by Cadet Sweets in 1964 (making this the great-granddaddy of all alternative Doctors): www.scififx.com/2012/09/doctor…

27) The Dream Lord, from "Amy's Choice"- a hallucinatory manifestation of the Eleventh Doctor's dark side.

28) The Curator of the Undergallery ("The Day of the Doctor").  An enigmatic figure who resembled the 4th Doctor and might possibly be a retired Doctor from the very distant future wearing an "old favorite" face.

29) The pragmatic and callous (and gun-toting!) "Unbound" Doctor from "Full Fathom Five", as played by David Collings.  

30) Nicholas Briggs, the Lon Chaney of Alternative Doctors, here as the "Nth" version from various Audio Visuals fan productions and the Doctor Who Magazine comic strip "Party Animals", where he appeared to be a far future Doctor.  The latter appearance may or may not have been the Gallifreyan agent Shayde, who adopted an identical disguise later during the 8th Doctor's comic strip tenure.  Briggs also played other alternative Doctors in "Doctor Who Unbound", various stage plays, the audio version of "Seven Keys to Doomsday" and, sort of, in the 8th Doctor audio "Minuet in Hell".  He's also the current official voice of the Daleks, Cybermen, Judoon, and Ice Warriors- so maybe it's more accurate to say he's Doctor Who's equivalent of Mel Blanc. ;)

31) Jim Broadbent as one of the Doctors from the epic 1999 Comic Relief sketch "The Curse of Fatal Death", penned by a young Steven Moffat: youtu.be/Do-wDPoC6GM

32) "Morbius Doctor" (and legendary series director) Douglas Camfield.  He looks like he would've been a fun Doctor, doesn't he?

33)  The Ninth Doctor, Christopher Eccleston.

34) The great David Warner as the "Unbound" Third Doctor from "Sympathy for the Devil" and "Masters of War".  He's also encountered ("off-camera") by the 6th Doctor in the audio story "100", which implies that the Unbound Doctors all exist in alternative universes running parallel to the show's "real" one.

35) The second "Cadet Sweets" Doctor.

36) The Doctor from a proposed 1980s cartoon by animation studio Nelvana.  The idea never developed past some (really interesting) concept art: megomuseum.com/community/showt…

37) "Fatal Death" Doctor Richard E. Grant, who would play another version of the Doctor 4 years later (see #52).    

38) Lenny Henry as the Doctor from this 1985 sketch that charmingly sent up mid-80s Doctor Who (as well as Thatcher-era politics): youtu.be/EdfwXiVyE8I

39) The Sixth Doctor, Colin Baker- here wearing his costume from the stage play "The Ultimate Adventure": youtu.be/8MLLoDczX5U

40) The Third Doctor, Jon Pertwee.

41) The Fourth Doctor, Tom Baker.

42) The Second Doctor, Patrick Troughton.

43) The Tenth Doctor, David Tennant.

44) Donna Noble (Catherine Tate), transformed into "The DoctorDonna" as the result of an accidental human/ Time Lord "metacrisis" ("Journey's End").

45) The other half of the "Metacrisis"- a human copy of the Tenth Doctor grown from his severed hand.

46) The Eleventh Doctor, Matt Smith.

47) The Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison.

48) The Seventh Doctor, Sylvester McCoy- dressed in his costume from the 90s "New Adventures" novels.

49) The Doctor (Mark Gatiss) from the 1999 Doctor Who Night sketch "The Web of Caves": youtu.be/xETlYacSCHE

50) Dr. Who (Peter Cushing) the human inventor of T.A.R.D.I.S..  He appeared in the two 1960s Dalek films, as well as a long-lost radio show pilot: youtu.be/hkC2JgC9CR4

51) "Fatal Death" Doctor Hugh Grant.  "Result!"

52) The briefly-canonical original Ninth Doctor (Richard E. Grant, again) from the 2003 BBC webcast "The Scream of the Shalka".  Further adventures were planned, but scrapped when the BBC decided to bring the show back to television.  It's still available free (and legal) here: www.bbc.co.uk/doctorwho/classi…

53) The First Doctor, William Hartnell.

54) The Eighth Doctor, Paul McGann.

55) "Fatal Death" Doctor Joanna Lumley.

56) The Doctor's nameless past incarnation who fought in the Time war, played by John Hurt (in "The Name of the Doctor", "The Night of the Doctor", and "The Day of the Doctor").  Generally known for branding purposes as "The War Doctor" or "Other Doctor".

57) "Fatal Death" Doctor Rowan Atkinson.

58) The Twelfth Doctor, Peter Capaldi.

59) "Morbius Doctor" (and series writer) Robert Banks Stewart .

This might be irrelevant to this picture, but I've noticed that you've designed "your own" the Other. There are two unknown future incarnations featured in some short stories ( tardis.wikia.com/wiki/The_Doct…  and  tardis.wikia.com/wiki/The_Doct…  ). I would love to see your interpretations of these two as well. Is that something that is likely to ever happen? :)

There were two spoof Doctors in the short-lived sketch show "End of Part One" (a TV version of "The Burkiss Way") - the Doctor regenerated when a ray gun destroyed his BBC contract. Victoria Wood's show also had a Doctor Who send-up in which the companion (sending up Jo Grant) famously said "I'm not very bright and I don't have my glasses". Not sure who played the Doctor in that one.

The Ruth Wilson Doctor is brilliant!  When I first saw it on the Doctor Who TV site I changed my view about a female Doctor. I think Ms Wilson could pull it off if the producers do choose to one day go down that track. What the naysayers seem to forget is the Doctor is non-sexual irrespective which gender he/she might be. I strongly suspect  that the next incarnation will be played by a woman. Here's hoping it might be Ruth Wilson, but I am sure there are plenty of fine actresses who can fill the role. I think another Luther alumni Indira Varma would be a good choice. Although I think Idris Alba would make a good Doctor too. Any chance of portraying either in your art?

:iconpaulhanley:
PaulHanley Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2014  Professional
Glad ya like her!  Pretty much the whole reason I created her was to convince people that a female Doctor could "work".  The two semi-official ones (Lumley and Weir), while brilliant casting, weren't exactly written in a way that'd sell folks on making the Doctor a woman "for real".  I think part of why a lot of people don't think of actresses for the Doctor is that there just aren't as many great parts for women out there as there should be, and they rarely get the sort of eccentric and fun lead role that'd put them "on the radar".  Wilson's a rare exception thanks to Alice Morgan, who pretty much IS the Doctor in some ways (and completely opposite in others).  If you've seen all 3 seasons of Luther, you just KNOW she could own the part.  

Varma, I can't say for sure- but again, that's because I mostly know her from Luther and Rome- two shows where she was relegated to being the troubled wife who's mostly there to cause the male lead heartbreak (and comes to a bad end in both- classic "girlfriend in the refrigerator" stuff).  That said- she's always been really good in anything I've ever seen her in, and she gives off the vibe of being someone who could do a lot more if she had the chance (and hey, it's not like Tom Baker and Matt Smith had any big Doctor-y parts before getting the role).

And Elba- who DOESN'T love that guy?  He'd be amazing- though the Daleks and Cybermen would REALLY have to up their game to stay a credible threat. :)

Portrayals of either in art- probably not, just because I'm so busy lately.  Really if anything, I'd like to do some more art (and maybe even some stories) with the Wilson version someday.  Is it weird and vain for me to say she's one of my favorite Doctors? :D

There actually a fan-theory about the Morbius Doctors. In the book Lungbarrow (a novelization of the intended conclusion of the Cartmel Masterplan), it turns out that the Other, a founding member of Time Lord society, entered the looms from which Time Lords are made fully-grown and the Doctor is his reincarnation. This would make the Morbius Doctors incarnations of the Other - negative-numbered Doctors. Of course, looms are no longer a thing (perhaps the Warrior destroyed them in their past to alter Time Lord history and only succeeded in giving himself and his Prydon Academy friends childhoods). As they'd say in Latin, Wibblus Wobblus Tempus Wempus.

He actually almost went in!!!  I'm sure it would've driven some fans up the wall, but y'know what?  Screw those guys. :D  Though I'm not an MLP fan myself, I certainly don't take any issue with it- it seems like a fun enough (and well-crafted) show, and my girlfriend's a huge fan (I even did some Whooves art for her for Valentine's).  And one of my best friends is a "brony" too- so I'm sure they would've been thrilled if I added Dr. Whooves to the lineup.

In the end, he got cut because, best I can tell, he's more of an analogue to the Doctor than something meant in some way to be the Doctor- which puts him in that category of characters like Inspector Spacetime and Marvel Comics' Professor Gamble.  Still, he almost made it, b/c I wanted to show just how far the idea of the Doctor can stretch- and he's about as far an example as you can get. ;)

Just a little background info.  The Morbius Doctors did seem to be originally intended to be earlier incarnations of the Doctor.  However, the same writers later instituted the "13 only" rule, with Tom Baker as the 4th.  They definitely abandoned the concept, and the faces seem to have been redesigned as Morbius' past incarnations.  They still count as much as some of the other obscure "Doctors", though, so kudos for including them.

Since there's only 8 Morbius Doctors, Deadly Assassin doesn't retcon anything.  I've heard speculation more than once that maybe they were even deliberately setting up a plotline with Baker being the penultimate Doctor (though this sounds a bit grand for Hinchcliffe and Homes, who kept things pretty episodic).  As far as I know, they never commented on the matter (but if someone can attribute otherwise, I'm really curious to know).

I've never understood why fans seize on the idea of them being Morbius's past incarnations, when that just doesn't make sense in the context of the scene, with Morbius winning and taunting, "Back to your beginning!" (and do they look like his past lives, based on what we know about the guy?).  A slicker explanation would be that the Doctor just projected a lot of false information to fend him off (Rule #1: The Doctor Lies).  

Anyway, estimations of how much they may or may not "count" sort of misses the point of the pic, I think. ;)

As the Doctor(s) would say: Fantastic, cool and brilliant artwork!


It's a refreshing novelty to find someone so au fait concerning the expanded Whoniverse. I got most of them myself, it took some of them longer to identify, not realising who they were until the eleventh hour. I think by the end, the only ones that completely stumped me were those Cadet sweet Doctors, and that 'mysterious' Japanese Doctor, which I'd never heard of. Despite hearing his stage play audio, I didn't recognise Trevor Martin either.


Great work, I'd like to see how you can top this!

The Cadet Sweet ones really are crazy obscure.  I almost forgot them myself, but I'd saved a few pic of them to my hard drive years ago and noticed them again as I was prepping the pic)- it wasn't till I really sat down and gave the images a hard look that I realized there were clearly two different versions too!  Of course, one could argue they're both bad likenesses of Hartnell.  I think some fans have gone that route with it with their expanded Universe theories- that it's adventures that happened in the days before he broke ranks with the Time Lords.  Those theories need an awful lot of explaining to make work though.  I think it's more fun if they're just off in some alternate universe somewhere. :D

And I'd love to do more art for the Japanese Doctor(s) one day.  That's such a cool (and fully imagined) parallel version of the series, with probably something like 70 or so illustrations between the five books that were published.  There's a red phone booth TARDIS, sexy Autons, egg-shaped Daleks, Triceraton-esque Silurians, tentacle porn Nestenes... it's such a hallucinatory and wild take on it all.

As for topping this, well... it HAS crossed my mind to do something like this for the companions.  If I can ever find the time!

Well son of a gun- allow me to correct BOTH of us, b/c it looks like we might both be wrong! :O  I'd seen it erroneously reported in a few forums that Culshaw did Hartnell, but Hartnell was definitely voiced by John Guilor, who also voiced him for the reconstruction of the 3rd and 4th episodes of "Planet of the Giants" for DVD: tardis.wikia.com/wiki/John_Gui…  


Meanwhile, it's definitely a voice-over artist standing in for Tom Baker with that "Commencing calculations!" line during the 13 Doctors sequence.  Strange move that they didn't get Tom himself to provide that, but I guess they were being extra-cagey about hiding his involvement till the very end.  I assumed it was Culshaw, b/c it REALLY sounds like his famous impression- but he doesn't seem to be credited at all, whereas Guilor's ambiguously credited as "voice-over artist".  Apparently he does a Tom Baker impression as well, so he may have done both (it would explain the non-specific credit).


Culshaw did definitely do Tom's voice for "The Five-ish Doctors (Reboot)" though. ;)
