Project LV One – Day 227 – Dr Who

freema agyeman - Martha Jones

Over the years I’ve watched more than my fair share of Doctor Who – in fact some of my first TV watching memories are of watching the Doctor.  So I guess the Doctor has been part of my life.  It has been much the same with my art.  From the earliest struggles (when are they going to end?) I have found inspiration in the Doctor.  So yesterday I got a notion into my head to make a combination of the drawings I’ve made over the years of the characters from the modern Doctor Who series.  After a bit of rummaging around I came up with 9 images which seemed to fit perfectly the bill.

Everything was perfect – 9 images in my favourite square format – great.  Then a sinking feeling hit me, where’s Freema Agyeman?  I could not explain why I hadn’t made a drawing of what I think is the most striking of all the Doctor’s companions.  I then panicked – could the reason be that, well, she wasn’t white?  I really hope not but I you can never discount such things and you must always confront them.  I actually think it is just more prosaic, I just didn’t think I could make a drawing that was good enough – I’m not sure the quick drawing I made this morning does the woman any justice but I’ll have to live with that.
