The Stolen Earth by JanjyGiggins The Stolen Earth by JanjyGiggins
Last year I did my 'Last of the Time Lords' picture to tie in with the end of the series of Doctor Who, and the plan was to do the same thing this year.

I started work on this after 'The Stolen Earth' and everything was going well.

And then they showed 'Journey's End'

What can I say? I don't think I've ever been so angry and disappointed with a TV show. It was a mess, it was lazy and it was just plain bad. I know a lot of people love it - I'm glad for them, but it's taken this long for me to even want to think about it again. I dusted off my preliminary composition and got back to work. It took a while, but I think it was worth it.

Here's my take on the good half of Doctor Who's fourth end of series finale...

Love all your work, but this one's outstanding!
Unfortunately, I have to agree with you on the final episode - it had its moments, but on the whole it was... well. Let's just say not their best one.

A very impressive piece, my only criticism is that the land mass of the planet's continents don't match those of Earth.

Aside from that, it's a nicely painted poster.

Thanks very much. It is Earth; I copied it quite closely from a reference shot. It's tilted though, so that the lighting matches that on the Doctor and Donna. I think SE Asia and Indonesia are visible, but almost upside-down. Since there's no up or down in space, I think it's forgiveable tinkering. ;)

Agree with you about Journey's End, RTD seems to have a thing about rushing endings after building them up so much in the previous episode *cough*LastoftheTimeLords*cough* :XD:

I fall into your camp re the finale.
I disliked the first and last episodes of the season but thoroughly enjoyed the rest. If it inspired you to do this, then the series has another highlight too!

Can I say again how much I admire your work?

Amazing work.

I especially like the Dalek spaceships and the Doctor's hair (just for the detail), (in the hair I mean)...I mean the Dalek space ships are detailed also.

Wonderful job! The details are amazing and the colors perfect. And I agree that Journey's End was a bit of a disappointment, but it still had it's moments to be called a fair episode.

While I haven't seen "The Stolen Earth" or "Journey's End", what I have heard about the latter does have me worried for the future of Doctor Who. On the bright side, I hear that Richard T. Davies is no longer head writer, with the Hugo-nominated Stephen Moffat taking his place.

A very good piece - and a very scary Davros! Favorited.

Thanks a lot. I wouldn't worry about the future of Doctor Who; I'm sure Journey's End was a blip. Now it's out of their system I'm sure it'll go back to being good.
