Doctor Who - Genius and Plush by PrincessHannah Doctor Who - Genius and Plush by PrincessHannah
For *niccals's Doctor Who Plushie Contest. We're allowed a maximum of 2 entries and I was going to do a second one with a less obscure pairing, but I ran out of time. Oh well. I really like how this one turned out anyway. Besides, there is a STAGGERING lack of Classic plush in the contest entries so far, aside from a few previous Doctors.

This is my first time drawing the lovely miss Nyssa of Traken, seen here with a small plushie of her fellow alien teen genius scientist TARDIS-mate Adric (I marvel at John Nathan-Turner for being able to put two characters of such a specific type as companions at the same time). I like to think that these two had some chemistry (no pun intended) after seeing them dancing together in Black Orchid. Then I listened to Big Finish's "The Boy That Time Forgot" and...

Adric: "I always thought...that you and I had much in common. We were both orphans, so young and so dependent on the Doctor. You...loved me then."
Nyssa: "The old Adric, yes! The awkward, frustrated, pig-headed boy!"
Adric: "I'm so lonely, Nyssa! My creatures here can give me almost everything and...and they try their best, but they don't really love me!"

I love the Whoniverse. I really really do.

Sarah Sutton and Matthew Waterhouse (and ALL of the original Team Fivey, actually) are going to be at the next Gallifrey One which, of course, I can't go to for being-on-the-other-side-of-the-country reasons. This makes me sad. I want to meet Team Fivey :(

Doctor Who (c) The BBC, not me

EDIT: Wow. For a self-proclaimed Adric fan, it certainly took me WAAAY too long to realize that his star is blue and not yellow (I actually noticed weeks ago, but never made it to adjusting this picture until now). My bad.

OK, so I'm happy to see I'm not the only one enamored of little Adric voodoo dolls (Eric Saward Sucks Eggs!!!!!). Obviously, I must return to DA to post pics of my Adric & Nyssa BJD's. Thanks, PrincessHannah, for sharing the geek love!

I like it, but...

(1) It looks like Nyssa is trying on a pencil-thin mustache.

(2) She just made her own personal cybernetic voodoo doll.

That's actually her mouth. The second line is her lower lip.

Thanks for faving!

I have a chibi drawing of her and Adric in my sketchbook that I haven't inked or colored yet, but I certainly plan too. The only problem is that I need to figure out a way to make her little arms look less phallic. Thanks for faving!

Well, I hope you figure it out soon. As I'm now looking forward to it. And it is I who should thank you for drawing this picture in the first place. Keep up the good work.

I had a hard time getting the colors to cooperate with me, though. I think it turned out well in the end, though. Thanks for faving!

Yeah but Nyssa was more scientifically minded and Adric was more mathematically minded. So she could build and experiment and design machines and cures and stuff whereas Adric could do... sums.


Nyssa is my fave classic companion. And I like this pic.

Without those mathematical sums science has no beginning and no foundation - while Nyssa can take what's given to her and make something from it, Adric actually CREATES the things she would take - such as the number of hexidecimal sequences in a computer program

The Nyssa/Adric shipping is always a cute one... better than Adric/Doc Adric/Turlough Doc/Turlough in any case - most of which make no sense (Adric and Turlough never met and the Doctor is... the Doctor) and don't really seem true to the chars

yeah but Nyssa was likely already pretty good at maths herself to be a scientist anyways. Maybe not to the level of Adric but certainly very capable..


i hate 'shipping'

Not really my thing either - but given other options I'll take Nyssa/Adric over DOCTOR/Adric any day
