The Most Beautiful Thing I Ever Saw by Batced The Most Beautiful Thing I Ever Saw by Batced
Thanks to my friend Elle, I learned today (January 8) would have been First Doctor William Hartnell's 106th birthday. I've spoken at length about Hartnell's tenure as the Doctor, and how the show began to find its legs under his time. But what I always find fascinating about the First Doctor is going back and watching all those surviving episodes and seeing how the great love affair he has with his TARDIS is already there. I love how Matt Smith has paid tribute to this affair, using it as the backdrop when he tells those children how it all began with "a daft old man who stole a magic box".

This is awesome! It feels like it's actually from the show. Putting everything at a slight angle was genius.

Thank you very much! I love photographing the figures of the First and Second Doctor in monochrome the most, because it feels only right to do so.

The angle was one of those happy accidents, when I realized I could create more emotion and drama than at a straight on shot :)

Hartnell's era has fast become one of my favorite era's of the show. The imagination and ingenuity of how they did what they did with so little during that time period was brilliant. So many great serials during that time too. While Hartnell isn't my favorite Doctor, his era is a close second behind Tom Baker.

I agree, I think the flavor of those serials being much closer to the Buck Rogers 1930s stuff is what appeals to me...that high sense of adventure and imagination brought to each story. Not to mention Hartnell himself being a fantastic actor in the part before his health declined.

Yes definitely. Also for such an older era I find that because it was so new THEN it still feels fresh to me in a way. Sure I know about the show and where it's going but it still felt so new in a way knowing that that was the actual beginning.
