Doctor Who the animated series by DanNortonArt Doctor Who the animated series by DanNortonArt
Well, what was close to happening didn't. Since the BBC eventually passed on, you will be rewarded with! This is the pitch poster I had only 7 hours to do. Starting to with first Doctor, the series would have touched on all the versions and filled in some gaps.

I hate to be a thorn in your rose bush, but there was an animated Doctor Who called The Infinite Quest, so they did touch on animating the Doctor, but I guess it was just the Tenth Doctor. 
tokomoxo Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2014
because I did not explain a thing! so you start doing animated series if you leave them at the end with no end? To me you are a real motherfucker, forgive me but it's true

The Beeb are always funny about the Doctor Who license,   they were going to make a prequel of when he was a child before Russell T. Davis Nixed it.

And there's also the whole pitched Nelvana Doctor Who cartoon in the 80s that was also canned.   Though The Doctor looked like Egon from The Real Ghostbusters in it! :D

I hope that the BBC brings back this project.

I will bet money that this happens someday.

Amazing, great stuff. Too bad Dr. Who is very cool.

This would've been really cool if it had become a thing. I'm sorry it didn't.
alorix Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2013
I;m sorry. I'm a bit thick. Does this mean Doctor Who was going to have an animated mini series?
DanNortonArt Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2013  Professional
It was a pitch for a series. The BBC entertained the notion, but ultimately passed.
alorix Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2013
how long ago was this. Because I recall seeing somewhere that Doctor Who has increased in popularity.

Awesome art ,actually a animated series would be a good way to revisit some of the older doctors without having to raise the dead.

Doctor Who: The Animated Series would've been great.
Tetzauh Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2013
Epic does not begin to describe it. If BBC didn't want to trans mit, maybe could have been made into a web series.

The fools! This could have been really cool and would have no doubt boosted viewership of the live action, particularly amongst newer younger viewers. Great poster.

Oh this is so promising!! Could have been so good, I hope it's actually done one day :)

Whyyyy isn't this going to be made? :...(
BadWolf117 Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2013
Wow while im not a fan of the anime, i have to say this looks really promising- id really love to see a poster like this for Davison or Mcgann or have talent

A grand epic storyline with the Cybermen as a force to be reckoned with... It needs to happen.
yanajenn Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
This is so gorgeous! And would've been so fun, I'm sure!
donobowk Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2013
You know this would be my dream. The possibilities are endless with a doctor who animated series and you could alternate between doctors depending on the story, do multidoctor stories whenever, have all the old cast back and sound alikes for first three doctors, not worry about budget for special effects and costuming......god damn it'd be perfect I'm angry now haha

I'm a massive Whovian myself donobowk, it's a shame I couldn't help get this going. Who knows, anything is possible.... See what I did there.

Well good luck in making your doctor who animated series pitch (hope it is made as an animated miniseries) :fingerscrossed:
:nod: and let’s hope it can be seen in CBBC :pray: :fingerscrossed:
I mean after all 2013 is doctor who’s 50th anniversary . :party:

PS: Sorry that the thundercats 2012 series will never be revived we should have seen a real closure to the series if the series is revived. =( :cling:
DanNortonArt Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2013  Professional
Thanks for the kind words! I'm afraid the Who show didn't work out. That's why I posted it.
barneyjones123 Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Ohh sorry about that :-( ,I guess people aren't interested in watching this doctor who animated spinoff,Maybe you can make a better animated pitch so that it wont cause a hiatus (and immediate cancellation) after the season finale and will give a proper closure during its true final season.

Wow, this looks amazing.
Fresh and cool yet amazingly creepy with that Cyberman image at the top and the silhouettes.

Deadman187 Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2013

I must say,I like the art style you have,I dunno why,but it seems to really fit this Doctor,kind of like with Otaking's anime version with the 3rd Doctor. Honestly I think BBC should give something like this another look,I could honestly see them taking an Big Finish audio drama and adding animation to it,that would be awesome for the 7th and 8th Doctors.
Asaph Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Such a pity they passed on. It's great.
JZLobo Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Oh, I would have watched the HELL out of that! I've thought about how great it would be to see an animated series with the classic Doctors myself. For Patrick Troughton, they could get his son to voice the Doctor. (He appeared in the episode Midnight. Sounds a lot like his father.)

Maybe someday... maybe someday.

I actually preferred the Doctors 1 through 3 (with 4 being a 50/50 preference).
Athelind Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2013
This is MAGNIFICENT. The BBC missed out on something great -- and deprived the rest of us, in the bargain!

Thanks for sharing, Dan.
