My favourite TARDIS team.
The Eight Doctor: Boundlessly enthusiastic, charismatic, caring, romantic, optimistic to the point of naivety. Has a tendency to lose his memory. And then sometimes he’s dull and lecturing, or extremely snarky, and a few times downright cruel. Eventually becomes so broken by pain and loss, and in the end he has to destoy the whole of Gallifrey.
Charlotte ‘Charley’ Pollard: The 18 year-old Edwardian adventuress, who ran away from her upper-class life, sneaking aboard an airship dressed as a male crew-member, and became a paradox once the Doctor saved her life. Brave, kind, passionate, witty, intelligent, impulsive, stubborn, exuberant, all around lovely, and unfailingly loyal. One of the few the Doctor has ever openly loved as more than a friend, and quite deservedly so. (Can you tell she’s my favourite?)
C’rizz: A Eutermesan (humanoid chameleon-like species) from the planet Bortresoye, in a parallell universe. A monk forced to mercy-kill his wife, and also tries repeatedly to commit suicide before he joins up with the Doctor. When on form however, he is brave, kind, witty, clever, tenacious, and heroic. But also deeply traumatised, guilt-ridden, self-hating and a bit unstable. He’s a badass woobie.
In summary: You should definitely go listen to the Big Finish audios and experience the awesome that is these characters.
C’rizz. One of my favourite Doctor Who companions.
The many variations of this, YOU ASKED FOR IT, KONI.
C’rizz is the prettiest chameleon companion.
I could do this all day.
I’m sorry I’m such a shit, have a cute sketch.
Sophie Okonedo* as genderbent C’rizz (*with a dash of Lucy Lawless)
And yes this is a female version of C’rizz, but she’s a reptilian alien, and a rather muscular one at that, so don’t worry about her not looking all that female by human standards. But given the rarity of C’rizz fanart, feel free to pretend this is regular C’rizz, even though her face is totally different.
Which will by the way probably give you super feels, like I literally started crying, so (not) sorry about that. If you had C’rizz feels before, this will only make it worse.
Spoilers for pretty much everything about C’rizz up to Terror Firma though, so I’m gonna put it behind a cut.
She hadn’t known, before. How could she have? How could any Eutermesan know that none of them could truly be said to have a self of their own, a moral compass, a personality separate and distinct from everyone around them? Eutermes zone and the company of her own kind was all C’rizz had known.
Imagine C’rizz finding a box of crayons somewhere on the TARDIS, getting really excited about using them to practice changing colors, and then making Charley and the Doctor crappy little crayon drawings of the three of them on adventures together.
A ridiculous Halloween drawing for you all. Because I was wondering what my favourite Team TARDIS would dress up as, so the answer was obviously as each other.
Of course the Doctor will never miss a chance to take his clothes off (he’s like that), and, you know, why wouldn’t I draw him with cornrows? Meanwhile Charley looks crazy dapper, but C’rizz is still working on how to manage human skin colour. Ah, my darlings.
