Who’s Who: All 11 Incarnations of Doctor Who on 1 T-Shirt

Warning, this next sentence will sound very bad to many of you and I apologize in advance. I have never watched a single episode, or even a seen single frame of anything Dr. Who related.

There, I said. Does that make me a bad person? Probably. Especially since I like to think of myself as someone that stays on top of all thing pop culture related.

Shame. On Me.

OK, now that I’ve got that off of my back, let’s talk a little bit about this “soon to be gone” gem from TeeFury. The shirt is called Who’s Who and it features all 11 incarnations of Doctor Who on a single T-Shirt. The shirt, which will only be available for 24 hours TODAY (and at the time of this post, there is just 18 hours left) is available for sale now at TeeFury for just $9. Rad. Even though I have no connection whatsoever to Dr. Who. You might then wonder “Rad? How so?” How is it that someone who has no connection to Dr. Who would consider a Dr. Who shirt rad. Well, it’s all in the process. And designer Ian Leino shared some of the process that went into making Who’s Who. The amount of research and though that he put into this one T-Shirt design is pretty fucking rad and well worth 9 bucks.

“Who’s Who combines my love of Dr. Who with my fond remembrance of high school and college stunts to show what would happen if ALL ELEVEN incarnations of the Doctor tried to cram into the TARDIS at the same time.”

“The first stage for almost any of my work is to do some deep research into the project. For this design, I wanted to ensure that I got all of the details right for each Doctor including facial mannerisms and costumes, so I pulled lots of reference images.”

“As much as possible, I tried to use existing photos as references for the Doctors’ expressions, but for a few of them I just couldn’t find the look I needed. For those, I took reference pictures of myself and used those as a positioning guide to be able to draw their features into the expressions I needed. Once I was happy with their likenesses, I combined them with my earlier sketches in Photoshop, then printed out the new image and took it to my lightbox for inking.”

“Now that everything was drawn, I combined the two inked images in Photoshop and after much tinkering was able to get the palette down to 5 colors for printing. I separated the colors, prepped the file, sent it in to TeeFury and if you like it, now you can wear it on your body!”

The Stig Is Revealed

Top Gear is one of the BBC’s most popular shows, with millions of viewers across a hundred countries. But one thing about the show that has remained a secret for some time now has been the identity of the mysterious driver known only as The Stig.

“The whole point of The Stig is the mystique — the bizarre characteristics he has, the wonderment created about what he might think, feel, do or look like. Kids adore the conceit, and I believe adults, although they know it’s a man in a suit (or is it?) gladly buy into the whole conceit because they find it entertaining.” says Top Gear producer Andy Wilman.

However, because of a lawsuit brought on by HarperCollins, the identity of The Stig is a no longer a mystery. According to HarperCollins, The Stig is actually a 33-year-old driver named Ben Collins. According to Collins’ website, he has raced both Formula Three and NASCAR, and even drove James Bond’s Aston Martin in the latest Bond flick, “Quantum of Solace.”

So what’s Top Gear to do now that The Stig has been exposed? Well, hire a new and unidentifed Stig! At least that’s what they did when the identity of the Stig prior to Collins was revealed in 2003.

Despite the reveal of the white Stig, you can still purchase his T-Shirts from the BBC America online shop. The shirts are priced from $22.98 to $26.98 and I am sure that these will be pulled from the store soon so if you’re a Stig fan, you better pick one of these up soon!
