Doctor Who, Lucky Thirteen: Peter Capaldi

Last month I created another entry in my series of Doctor Who portraits, based upon the actors who have played the title role in this long-running BBC science-fiction series. I time-traveled to the year 2013 this time, for an illustration of the current incarnation of the Doctor, as played by Peter Capaldi. Some people will quibble over the numbering, but I’m counting him as number thirteen and that’s that! 🙂

The thirteenth actor continuing the role of the Doctor is Peter Capaldi

Peter Capaldi is a proper fan of the show too, having grown up watching it and even famously writing fan letters! With the ever-younger modern casting of the role, he had feared perhaps his time might have passed him by before being cast. Maybe it is his look, but he reminds me a bit of Jon Pertwee (the third Doctor) but if I close my eyes I can almost hear Tom Baker (the fourth Doctor). I guess what I’m saying is that while he is absolutely putting his own acting talents and spin into the role, he is evoking classic Doctor vibes as well, and that is a part of what makes this whole regeneration thing work for the show.

This is actually my first color illustration in my portrait series. My earlier illustrations of the first Doctor and the second Doctor were in black and white with shades of grey as a homage to how their episodes were shot and originally aired that way. All of the other Doctors have been shot and broadcast in full color, so that’s how they will be drawn by me.

Who will be next? Only time will tell! 🙂 Meanwhile, please let me know what you think of this and remember, if you’d like an original commission by me or would like to hire me as an Illustrator, please use the Contact page and let me know as much as you can about your request.

    1. Thank you. I feel like I didn’t do as well with his hair as I’d like, but then I always feel that way about hair.
