The History of ‘Doctor Who’ as the Bayeux Tapestry

Unashamed Doctor Who geekiness alert! Artist Bill Mudron has created what’s perhaps the most ridiculously great thing I’ve seen all week — a trip through the history of the show, rendered as a sort of false Bayeux Tapestry. The project covers both the classic series and the show’s newer incarnation, and it’s hilarious. What Doctor Who fan wouldn’t want a faux-embroidered drawing of Ace taking a baseball bat to a Dalek? As per the artist, “I had originally intended this to be one 12-foot long image, but then I realized that if I were to ever turn this into a print that it would be impossible to frame.” He did turn it into a 24″ x 36″ print, which you can buy — click through for some close-ups.
