Doctor Who Infographic

Now available as a print!


Hey, it's another infographic. Here's everything you've ever wanted to know about the Doctor, but were afraid to ask.


Once I'd finished drawing cartoon renditions of all eleven Doctors, I was trying to think of something else I could do with them. Suddenly the idea of an infographic sprung to mind. Armed with my moderate knowledge of Who-lore and trivia, I started typing up relevant factoids and arranging the Doctors on the page. Obviously you'll have to view the original size to read most of it.


I think this is the first time in my life I've ever drawn the TARDIS. It was surprisingly hard! It seems like it would be simple; after all it's just a blue box with some windows, but it was actually quite complicated, what with all of those little details and recessed panels and whatnot (and yes, it's been pointed out that I have the wrong number of window panes. I've fixed that on the revised version).


There's another Doctor Who infographic over here.


This piece took quite a while to finish. I worked on it a little at a time over several days. There was a lot of moving around of elements and much text editing to get everything to fit in an efficient manner. Hopefully there aren't too many glaring errors in the information.


I've had the grid system drilled into my head since design school, and normally I'm a devoted disciple of it. This time I said nuts to grids and just sort of let the design happen organically. I kind of liked it. I may start ditching the grid more often.


Laid out entirely in InDesign. All the Doctors were drawn in InDesign as well.


UPDATE: My little infographic just passed 150,000 views!!! Thank Kew, Internet!!!


UPDATE: Be sure and check out the REVISED AND UPDATED VERSION. All the mistakes that appear here have been corrected.


There's another infographic featuring the Doctor's enemies here.
