4 days and counting… Zygons, Face & Eden







The countdown to 50 continues with new covers for Fourth Doctor stories Terror of the Zygons, The Face of Evil and Nightmare of Eden.

Click here to download the covers from Velvet Jacket, and read notes about their creation here.

The Tom Baker era is now complete on DVD, at long last, but I do have just one more cover to do. The Ark in Space will be getting redone shortly, I’ve  been prioritising the new releases for this update. I don’t plan to make any design changes, however, just update the photos to improve the quality. The main change may be a different shot of the Doctor, depending on what I can find. The only other tweak I have in mind to make once the range is complete is to The Leisure Hive, where I know I have a better quality photo of the Doctor to drop in.

    Thanks very much for these, it’s good to be getting close to a complete matching set!
    You don’t have any plans to do a cover for ‘Shada’ then?

    I was waiting for someone to ask about Shada ;D

    At this point it’s not a priority. To be honest, I’m not sure there’s much in the way of pictures other than the Doctor, Romana and Chronotis (I don’t have the DVD so don’t know if there are unseen shots in the photo gallery), so I think I’d struggle to do a cover for it. Personally I don’t count it as a legitimate story (I’ll avoid the ‘c’ word) and don’t plan to buy it, so a cover is unlikely — similarly I won’t be doing one for ‘Scream of the Shalka’. However, I’m aware other people will have it in their collection and, if they’re using my covers, it’ll stand out, so I’ll give it some thought when everything else is done.

    I did do ‘K9 & Company’ after all, which is arguably no more legit, so we’ll see.
