Having seen these behind-the-scenes pictures from the making of The Hollow Crown 2, I strongly suspect that Benedict Cumberbatch is NOT rehearsing for the role of Richard III but is actually planning to take over the British monarchy and usher our land into a new golden age of facepulling, photobombing and remarkable noblesse oblige in the face of ever-increasing otter comparisons. And if that’s what he wants, then who can possibly stop him?
I for one welcome our elegantly cheekboned overlord, and wish to offer this subtle reworking of the national anthem in his honour…

Anonymous asked: I thought your website was created by a 17 year old girl with raging hormones, not a 40ish year old woman. Is that intentional?

My Tumblr is actually run by a 40-something woman with raging hormones who is very in touch with her inner 17-year-old, so yeah, close enough!

Recently, Passeriform asked me whether I’d ever drawn Shezza, a.k.a. Scruffy!Sherlock. The answer was no, so here I am rectifying this omission.
Edited to add: If anyone would like a Shezza of their own, I’ve added this design to my store as a shirt, card or sticker.

Project Mini-Who: Redraw The Companions is still chugging in an increasingly haphazard fashion through the foothills of Doctor Who history, and has now reached the lads from UNIT. Splendid chaps, all of them…

Centaurs on the loose in London. My personal favourite is the second one, from the Parthenon marbles at the British Museum, if only because the chap he’s fighting is trying to give him a knee where it hurts most, but has apparently forgotten that centaurs keep their family jewels in a different location…

Something gone wrong with your last regeneration, Madam President?

I know the regeneration scene in Destiny of the Daleks was controversial, but apparently it could have been a lot worse…

Ode to a Cumberbatch

Cumberbatch, Cumberbatch, Cumberbatch, why?
Why does your prettiness make girls cry?
Why do they dribble when you walk by?
Cumberbatch, Cumberbatch, Cumberbatch, why?

Cumberbatch, Cumberbatch, Cumberbatch, why?
Why are your cheekbones so goddamn high?
When your eyes twinkle, I swoon and sigh.
Cumberbatch, Cumberbatch, Cumberbatch, why?

Cumberbatch, Cumberbatch, Cumberbatch, why?
Why should I settle for some other guy?
Ask me to snog you and I’ll comply.
Cumberbatch, Cumberbatch, Cumberbatch, why?

Reblogging one of my old scribbles to celebrate the recent return of Downton Abbey to our TV screens. Frankly, the unexpected arrival of a Chitauri invasion fleet at this point could only improve the series, although it might also cause some tricky etiquette issues at dinner…

A Mighty Moments In Slash History Special: This Is Not A Pee-Pee

If you happen to find yourself standing stark naked in the middle of a painting, there are several things you can do to hide your family jewels. There’s strategic drapery, of course, and there are also strategic scabbards. In the absence of these, however, you may find yourself obliged to preserve your modesty with any old thing you can lay your mitts on.

Here, then, is a collection of some of the most random methods of groin coverage in art history. Please note: I do NOT recommend sallying forth in public with nothing to protect you but a rack of roast meat, a dove, a massive dragonfly, a cherub, an art teacher’s right hand, or the hairstyle of an unfortunate lady bystander. You may end up being arrested, and you’ll almost certainly find it tricky to get through doorways…
