I placed a spoiler warning on this post because the identity of the villain in Prisoners of Time was a huge reveal. I didn’t see anyone guess it before it was revealed and I personally thought it was a great choice on the part of the Tipton’s. I really don’t want to risk spoiling anything for anyone who has not yet read Prisoners of Time. That is why I have blurred the majority of this post. If you have not read Prisoners of Time yet, I strongly urge you pick them up first and then come back to this post. Click here to order them online.
If you have read Prisoners of Time or you just don’t care about spoilers, click on the blurred portions of the post to reveal the content.When we were working on Prisoners of Time issue 3, Mike Collins produced this brilliant design for the villain (Left). The concept was that Adam Mitchell, who we had seen in the series one episodes Dalek and The Long Game, had become obsessed with the Doctor. He augmented himself with the technology of various races from throughout the universe in order to equip himself well enough to exact his revenge.
Since Adam is now composed of so many various bits, it was important that his design stayed relatively consistent from issue to issue. Since each issue was drawn by a different artist, some reference was needed. Mike came up with this design, which is composed of several of the Doctor’s past baddies (can you name them all?). I added some flat color (Right) so that Adam’s colors would still match in the issues I did not color.
Below is a fully rendered version I did so that he could be seen in all his glory!
