Baby Face Of Boe

Hi there! Is anyone else as excited as me for the new series of Doctor Who starting soon, with Jodie Whittaker playing the first ever female Doctor?! I believe it starts on the 7th October, so not long to wait now.

I started another journal page for Art Journal Journey, not really knowing where it would take me, but I used some pieces of collage paper that were left over from yesterday's play, including half a baby face image. It suddenly put me in mind of a Doctor Who character, The Face of Boe, well a much younger version anyway!

So I googled images of The Face Of Boe, and it's believed that it was the much older face of another character, Jack Harkness. I found a quote...

"Used to be a poster boy, when I was a kid, living in the Boeshane Peninsula. Tiny little place. I was the first one to be signed up for the Time Agency. They were so proud of me. The Face Of Boe they called me."

So I've written this quote around the edges. Isn't it funny, the places your art takes you sometimes?!

Happy Friday!

  1. that's a great page! Yes, I'm looking forward to it - not especially because of a female Dr but it should be good.

  2. I have never seen any Dr. Who series - I fear a gap in education?! -lol!
    I love your super page though! Isn't this fabulous from where we can take inspiration! Cool! Another wowser for Yvonne's wonderful theme! Thank you very much! You are on a roll!You know jow I love your artsy style!
    Happy weekend dear Alison!
    Hugs, Susi

  3. We don't get that channel, but I'm looking forward to seeing it once it's available. DVD, maybe? We'll see. I'm sad Capaldi didn't last longer. I did really like him. This will be fun, though :)

  4. Its a while since I saw a Dr Who series, but I think a woman in the lead role is long awaited, I think there will be more folk watching just out of curiosity.
    I love where your art took you today Tracy and how as it evolved into this fantastic page. It is good fun to go where the creativity takes you .
    Thank you for adding another awesome page to my theme at AJJ.
    Yvonne xx

  5. I'm a Dr. fan and can't wait to meet our new lady Dr. The ads have been on here too. Loving your page. It has a great feel.

  6. Oh YES i'm counting down the days Alison, long awaited and I secretly would have liked a twist with Clara becoming the Doctor, think she would have been a good one. Fingers crossed the story lines are good!!.. Oops Dr Who chatter!!
    Love your face of Boe page and fascinating fact, looks fab written around the page.
    Have a super weekend Hugs Tracey xx

  7. I don't think we get the new Dr. here when you do. I also look forward to a new doctor, but my all time favorite is still David Tennant. I will always love him.

    Your newest journal page is awesome. The Baby Boe is fabulous and so are the wonderful facts you shared. This is such a unique and amazing piece and I'm delighted you shared it with us at Art Journal Journey, dear Alison.

  8. this is great,i dont now non where is dr.who,but your page is super!
    happy weekend.

    hugs jenny

  9. I love your inspiration, how exciting and you created such a great page! The quote is wonderful too 😁. Happy weekend! J 😊 x

  10. Yes Dr Who looks good but still would have David Tennant back any time!Love this! Chrisx

  11. Fabulous page Alison -think the last time I watched DR the Daleks made a first appearance many moons ago and I think the original Dr Who maybe.Love the hand written quote round the edges

  14. Love love love this! So innocent.

  15. That's beautiful and haunting - a lovely page. I'm keen to see what JW does with the Doctor - though I don't like the whole three-companions business... do they think a woman needs more than one to cope? Or worse, that a female actor needs all those extra people, two of them men, to carry the show? Smells of a lack of faith to me...
