The War Doctor Quote was something I wanted to do to complete the set of known doctors, however the 50th anniversary gave us a very brief glimpse of the next doctor.|
Not strictly a quote I know but I wanted to see if I could do something even if we just saw his eyebrows !
So I thought why not put his eyebrows behind the words that introduced him.
|The War Doctor Quote|
When I saw the 50th anniversary episode I knew I had to create one more quote, and as there was a fairly limited amount of words to use, this seemd like the most appropriate.|
I actually created it a couple of hours after the broadcast, which has to be the fastest turnaround from a doctor appearing to quote poster ever !
As you can hopefully see there is the UNIT logo, some Gallifreyan symbols, which were actually used most in the closing credits, and the three Doctors are represented, Bow Tie, Trainers and a quick sketch of the War Doctor.
|Doctor Who Quotes - The Full Set|
Here they are, the full 12 quotes, and if you have been following along all year you will know why there are 12 not 11.|
Click on the image for a larger version or see all the quotes, with more details on their creation and inspiration, on the main DW Quotes page.
Thanks to everyone that requested I created printed versions of these throughout the year, as you know I created a limited edition set of 12 quote cards that is now available for purchase in my online shop, there are only 50 sets available, so get yours while you can.
|Doctor Who Quotes - Eleventh Doctor|
So this is it the final quote in my year long project.|
It is the quote you might expect from doctor 11, but people usually miss off the last part.
Which led me onto thinking how would the Leadworth Chronical report all of this.
So I decided to create the front page of an edition of the newspaper, and as you can see in this edition they have been following the Doctor quite a bit.
I packed quite a bit of Doctor 11's adventures into this one, including a representation of the new TARDIS roundels, the pandorica symbol and even an advert for Hedgewick's world :-)
This concludes the set, but I might just create another from the 50th anniversary if there is something quote worthy, and I'm guessing it will be quotes packed !
Don't forget the whole set of 12 cards is available for purchase in my online shop, there are only 50 sets available, so get yours while you can.
If anyone is wondering about that Silence portrait, I did actually create it entirely using countmarks before I decided to use it on the quote poster click here to see the full version of the portrait
|DoctorWho Quotes - FOR SALE !|
The moment has finally arrived, I had no idea how the quotes would be received when I started creating them but it seems lots of you love them.|
The launch of my brand new limited edition online shop now has the quote cards for sale.
As mentioned before there are 12 UK A5 sized cards featuring all of the quotes. As it's the 50th anniversary there is a limit of 50 packs being made available to purchase, when they are gone they won't be reprinted.
There is a small difference to the versions you see on this website, in that I have made the cards borderless, so you get a few more mm of art per card !
If you are wondering why the 11th Doctor quote is blanked out it's because I haven't officially posted about this one yet as it isn't November !
You can see the 11th Doctor quote but only by going to the shop website.

|Doctor Who Quotes - Tenth Doctor|
As October is here and Nerdfest is over I can now post the 10th Doctor Quote|
This one is sort of two quotes in 1, the main quote of course being about Rose being left in another dimension.
The second in a sort of starry background universe is the 10th's favourite phrase ALLONSY!
If you are following the quotes project you will probably know that I have printed 50 sets of the quotes and they will be available for sale, that date is nearly upon us and I will post more details about how to purchase them very very soon.
Keep checking the main Doctor Who Quotes Project Page for details.
|Quotes for Sale|
Since I started the quote project people have asked whether they will be for sale and at the start I had no illusions that people would do that !|
So with me going to the Nerdfest Comic Con in Nottingham I thought that now would be the right time to see if I could find some way to let people purchase them.
I looked at quite a few options and yes I could have just put them all on Cafepress or Redbubble individually, but I really wanted to keep the collection together and have some sort of control over how they were printed.
After a lot of searching and weighing up options I found a company that would print them in bulk on A5 cards, the result of which you can see in the picture.
You can also see a small sneak peak of the final two cards :-)
The final "product" will be a set of 12 cards, 11 doctor quotes, plus the 8th Doctor Big Finish quote as a bonus, and there will only be 50 sets printed and sold.
They will be available first at Nerdfest in Nottingham, and assuming they don't sell out there they will be sold online shortly afterwards.
Follow me on Twitter - @Zort70 - to get the latest information on the sets.
One last thing, there will be some special sets in the 50 with a little extra, but I'll let you discover that for yourselves.
|Doctor Who Quotes - Ninth Doctor|
The ninth in the Doctor Who quotes project was a slightly tricky one, not because of the quote but because of how to present it.|
I knew I wanted to include the Bad Wolf Graffiti element so a wall was going to be the background, but I didn't want to have the quote as graffiti.
So I thought why not present it as an advert, and the idea was born. Unfortunately I found out after creating this that a world famous poster artist had a similar idea for one of his projects, but sometimes worlds clash and there is nothing you can do.
As to the quote itself, I love the metaphor of time travel being like visiting Paris, it shows the ninth doctor had the traditional impish sense of humour behind the rugged exterior.
Oh yes, you might also see a sneaky Slitheen cruiser thrown in for good measure.

|Doctor Who Quotes - Eighth Doctor|
As it's August already (!) it must be time for the Eighth Doctor Who Quote Poster.|
Paul McGann only had a few fleeting moments on screen compared to the others, but made quite an impact, I think this quote has to be my favourite from the TV movie.
Being human of course I hope you recognise the pattern of the TARDIS key that the Eighth Doctor used and others used at various points in his history.
I also thought the key design would make an interesting t-shirt so I have uploaded it to a few daily print sites.
The first to accept it is Teebusters, if you have a moment please click here to vote for it
Also available at Qwertee, click here to vote
Now when choosing a quote for Doctor Eight I had a choice to make, do I stay with the on screen appearance or do I use one from the huge body of work that Paul has made with the Big Finish audios ?
I realised that the only option was to break my rule of one quote per Doctor and recognise that huge contribution to the Doctor Who universe.
So presented exclusively here is a bonus Big Finish quote from the Eighth doctor.
The grammar police have been out in force and given me a talking to !
I was aware of the deliberate mistake in the original, however I decided to use "all ways" instead of "always" as it was neater and fitted the design in a pleasing manner.
However it seems that may have been too radical for some people and I decided to try it the "correct" way and see how different it was.
It may be correct but I'm still not convinced it is better, but I am going to let you all decide, let me know on which ever social media website takes your fancy and if the posters get printed I will make a final decision based on feedback received.
|Sophie Aldred Says Hello|
The very lovely Sophie Aldred saw the Seventh Doctor quote and sent some very kind words via twitter.|
As for the other part of the message I can forgive her for not knowing who I am :-)

|Doctor Who Quotes - Seventh Doctor|
Previously only available in the fan made Celebrate Regenerate book, I now present the Seventh Doctor quote here for the first time.|
These might have been the final words the doctor ever spoke on the small screen, thankfully they were not, but they would have been quite fitting if they were
In the interest of full disclosure, this was the first quote I created, last year I played around with this one and then that led to the idea of creating a quote poster for all the doctors, so the seventh was my first so to speak.
This is Celebrate Regenerate, a fan made, not for profit book celebrating all 50 years of Doctor Who.|
Articles about all the stories, interviews with the past and present of DW and lots of great art.
The book features all the current DW quote posters and also the debut of the 7th doctor Quote poster.
So go have a look, it is free to download or you can have a printed version created with £1 for each one sold going to Children in Need.
More information and the download / purchase links can be found at - CelebrateRegenerate.weebly.com
|Doctor Who Quotes - Sixth Doctor|
A quote where the Sixth doctor waxes lyrical to Peri abut the nature of the universe and about how life goes on no matter what happens to us.|
I wanted to use a hexagonal TARDIS style roundel for this poster as it is the Sixth Doctor, in fact that came first before the quote.
Once I had found a quote I decided it had to be floating in space so I imagined a scenario where the TARDIS had a small breach in the wall and the vastness of space was shining through.
|Doctor Who Quotes - Fifth Doctor|
A quote from the Fifth Doctor about the problems of diary keeping and time travel|
The quote and doodles are written on an old piece of headed notepaper from the Sirius Conglomerate which is the slightly less than legitimate company featured in the episode the quote is from.
Featuring the 500 year diary that the Doctor is referring to and a sketch of Sharaz Jek and his android controlling belt buckle.
|Doctor Who Quotes - Fourth Doctor|
I know it's not quite April yet, but as there is a new episode of Doctor Who tonight this seemed like the perfect time to present the fourth doctor's quote.|
You won't know how difficult it was to choose just one quote for the fourth doc, but that was my criteria I set myself at the start and that's what I'm sticking with.
I did bend one of my own criteria and have used more colours than I was going to but with that scarf I think it was absolutely necessary !
The quote is, in my view, the ultimate dilemma for a time traveller, do I create a paradox and destroy what I know, or do I leave the causality of time and space alone as good can come from evil.
|DW Quotes - Third Doctor|
It's March already, so here is the third Doctor Who quote poster|
Apart from the quote typography, I wanted to include Bessie, the third Doctor's "borrowed" earthly method of transport, and after creating the image of Bessie that's where the road idea popped into my mind.
Not an epic world saving line from The Doctor, but one of my favourite quotes that can apply to any circumstance, earthly or otherwise.
For now I'll leave you all to work out what the various other symbols mean, I might run a competition at some point so start working on them.
|Doctor Who Quotes|
As it's the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who I thought I'd give myself a little challenge.|
I am going to create 11 posters, one for each of the doctors.
Each poster will be of a quote from the doctor and hopefully contain an element or two of DW history to make things more interesting.
Here are the first two, and I'll keep posting one a month until the anniversary in November.
