Sontarans! Hooray!

I’ve never liked the whole “easy as Pi” scene as it makes no sense, so instead I wanted to work in another monster cameo and who better than the potato heads. Looking at the various versions of them in all their stories, in the Classic Series that is, I reckon Lynx is the best looking so I used him over any of the others whose names begin with “S”.

And since Sontarans are meant to be a clone race for once we get to see them all looking the same, which left me with the problem of how to differentiate between them. The answer was simple – give the leader a gold collar and helmet to denote his rank.

COVER – the cover for “Issue 2” is an homage to the Alister Pearson VHS release, with the Doctors arranged in the same order.

PANEL 2 – The Cybermen’s dialogue box is modelled on the one used for their appearances in TV Comic.

PANEL 5 – One of the nice things about having Tom making his way to the tower instead of Hurndall, is that he gets to meet the Earthshock Cybermen before his successor so I had to try and get at least one shot where they were both in frame together.

PANEL 6 – One of the nice things about having Tom making his way to the tower instead of Hurndall, is that he gets to meet the Ainley Master early. The shot of him in this panel is from The King’s Demons IIRC. And a namecheck for the Raston Warrior Robot!

Dr Who in “The Mysterious Meteorite”!

Somehow when uploading the TV Comic strips I managed to miss this one out, so here it is at last! Also known as “The Metal Eaters” but there’s a post-Countdown strip with that title so I went with “The Mysterious Meteorite” instead.

From the pre-Countdown pages of TV Comic…

PANEL 1: This would have been a CSO shot on telly

PANEL 4: I really like this sequence with Tom instead of Hurndall. Why Terrance Dicks never mentioned Exxilon in the original I don’t know, it’s such an obvious thing to do. So I did.

PANEL 5: Using the sonic makes a lot more sense for Tom than “playing pitch and toss” as in the original.

PANEL 6: An oblique reference to the sonic’s demise in The Visitation.
