Kettlewell's Robot

gouache on black card stock

Well, it's not gouache exactly. It's water based and opaque though, it's sold as a "white watercolor".


Robot was a turning point for Doctor Who, and what better to pivot on than a familiar old-school sci-fi standard, a big hulking robot.

With added silliness and very ambitious special effects, The fourth Doctor's era moves away from the "Imagination+Realism" formula which kept adults interested in the Pertwee era, to the "Big Ideas, no matter how silly it looks" formula which kept adults interested in the Baker era.
