Another mission report from somewhere in the middle of Project Mini-Who: Redraw The Companions. This time it’s the Third Doctor and the ladies in his life. Next up: the chaps from U.N.I.T. Khaki colouring palette, here I come…
Otter in water.
I aspire to this kind of quality paw-positioning work. Brilliant!
Knock knock. Who's there? Benedict Cumberbatch., Episode 1, Lewis Macleod Is Not Himself - BBC Radio 4 -
Benedict Cumberbatch surprises an old friend, Martin Freeman.
'My name is long and ridiculous, like my face'.
SO YEAH I WROTE THIS AND I’M STILL REALLY HAPPY WITH IT.
Listen to the rest of the show on R4, Tuesday at 6.30pm.
Yes, this Radio 4 sketch was written by the very clever mums-the-nerd and it is funny so you should listen to it!
Sherl and John,
Sherl and John,
Solving crimes with no trousers on,
Catch the crook,
Find the clue,
Then go sneaking back home to screw,
Hooray, half-naked Sherl and John… — Suggested theme song for Sherlock, season 4 (at least, in Tumblr’s dreams)
Look, it’s Benedict Cumberbatch!
Chased by amorous crowds of girls,
Run for it, Cumberbatch… — My obligatory Spider-Man parody, several days after the meme was fashionable. Sorry…
I strongly suspect that if I ever meet Benedict Cumberbatch in real life, this is what our encounter will be like. “Bloody hell, it’s that otter woman. Hasn’t she gone away yet? Nope, she’s still there. Drat and double drat…”
Project Mini-Who: Redraw The Companions reaches the Second Doctor’s era, with a rendition of the crew that I would call Team Memory Wipe, but alas, I fear the topic might yet be a little too sensitive.
By the way, if you’re keen to know how much progress I’m making with this redrawing thing, I’m adding a sticker version of each companion to my Redbubble store as I go: you can check out the ones I’ve already drawn here.
Paulus Kal: Fechtbuch, gewidmet dem Pfalzgrafen Ludwig - BSB Cgm 1507, [S.l.] Bayern, second half 15th century (not after 1479)
This peculiar illustration comes from a 15th-century fencing manual by Paulus Kal, which explains the sword. Everything else about the picture boggled my mind so much that I had to look into it further. From this page, I discovered that it represents the qualities of the ideal fencer: “I have eyes like a hawk, so you cannot deceive me. / I have a heart like a lion, so I strive forward. / I have feet like a deer, so I can jump forward and backward.”
However, this doesn’t explain why the ideal fencer would choose to sally forth in public wearing nothing but crotch-enhancing underwear. Perhaps all will be explained in the forthcoming movie spectacular, The Swashbuckling Semi-Nude Adventures of Lionheart Bambihawk…
