Umm... are you going to drink that Skooma?

1968 marked a very special five year anniversary of Doctor Who, that brought together the first ever two Doctors William Hartnell and Patrick Troughton and the War Doctor, played in early Doctor Who movies by Peter Cushing.

Unfortunately this actually didn't occur, but is merely the premise for an amazing array of fan art created by the immeasurably talented artist Colin Bruckhurst, who, over on his eBay, is selling photoshopped collectables of his faux-Who-ian adventure named "The Day Of Doctor Who", and the goods are actually really quite cool and bound to get Who-fans' sonic screwdrivers spinning all over the shop.

The Day Of Doctor Who

Bruckhurst has created a November 23-29, 1968 Radio Times magazine cover, seen below...

...80 telesnaps and a reproduction of a John Cura telesnap envelope...

...a photo "signed" by Peter Cushing, the movie Doctor...

...a wee 37mm badge...

...and this incredible photographic line up from the 1983 episode "The Six Doctors."

If that wasn't enough sweet nostalgia, Bruckhurst fuels the fires of collector's hearts with this cheeky little quote...

Finally available again, a selection of ephemera relating to the forgotten Fifth Anniversary Doctor Who adventure, The Day of Doctor Who, transmitted on Saturday November 23rd, 1968, and starring William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton and the mysterious 'War Doctor', Peter Cushing. Unlikely as it may sound, not a single copy is known to survive, not even a soundtrack...

What a genius and what a great selection of works! It's wonderful to see fans of an IP go to great and incredible lengths to pay homage to their love. And it couldn't be more visible here.

Good work, sir!

By the way, do check out Colin Bruckhurst's eBay and snaps ups the goods!
