Recommended in Doctor Who Magazine Issue 524 and by the BBC America blog, this is the 2018 update of Babelcolour’s Every Doctor Who Story tribute. The opening monologue in the fan-made video owes a huge debt of thanks to the generous contributions made by an amazing group of voice artists – Jon Culshaw, Jonathon Carley, Elliott Crossley, Stuart Grant, John Guilor, Wink Taylor, Christopher Thomson and Peter Walsh.
The part one of a new multi-part web series of Doctor Who Fact Files by Babelcolour (the YouTube account of digital artist and colourist Stuart Humphryes) and promoted by BBC America’s website. It explains the basics of the series – such as who the Doctor is, where he comes from, how he travels to each adventure and his startling ability to change his form. If the video does well there will be other files created to explain The Time Lords, the Doctor’s life on Gallifrey, the Daleks and the Cybermen amongst others.
BabelColour createad a Cybermen summary. Body horror and surgical brutality equals cybernetic transformation in the dark universe of Doctor Who. Emotions will destroy you. They were removed because it hurts. The Cyber Race will take your body. You will become like them.
