I’ve been working on several Doctor Who covers lately, so when I was asked to come up with a concept for Doctor Who: Prisoners of Time I was excited because it would have been for ALL 12 covers of the series. Each issue was going to spotlight a specific Doctor, so issue #1 would feature Doctor #1, issue #2 ~ Doctor #2, etc. My plan was to have the Doctor prominent in the foreground, behind him would be all the companions that travelled with that specific Doctor and the TARDIS. The background characters would have been tonal color scheme so you could see them while still making the Doctor the main focus. Then, issue #12 would flip so that the TARDIS was the main focus and the Doctors would be surrounding it instead of the companions. Unfortunately, the project didn’t happen and I was of course, a little disappointed. Too bad, it would have been a cool series of covers.
Possibly would've made things a bit empty with some of the later Doctor issues, who lack large numbers companions compared to others. Though on the flip side, it could've been a cool excuse to dig into including more comic/novel/Big Finish companions, which certainly must've been possible since Frobisher got a starring role.
ze book was awsome.
The cool thing about the idea is that it transcends any particular story line. I think it would make an excellent series of posters.
