Doctor Who Google Doodle by HugoLynch Doctor Who Google Doodle by HugoLynch
CHECK OUT THE UPDATED VERSION HERE: [link]

A mockup of what I imagined Doctor Who's google doodle would be like next year (for his 50th birthday) Doctor Who is the longest-running sci-fi show ever (since 1963) and a British icon so I think it would be appropriate to have a google doodle on that day, at least in the UK.

I switched the colour of the 'g' and the 'l' to keep the blue tardis.

Done in Inkscape.

For those not familiar with the show, the letters are Gallifreyan (from Gallifrey, the doctor's home planet) and are taken from his crib. They supposedly spell out his real name, so I thought it would be cool to use his name to create the actual doodle.

Check out the close-up version in my gallery. [link]


EDIT: Thank you to everyone for the faves. I used to thank everyone personally but I've had so many for this that I can't. So once again, THANKS!

EDIT: WOW! Almost 10 000 (edit again, MORE than 10 000) views in a day and featured in the 'What's hot' section. This is amazing. Thanks to everyone for the views, the comments and the faves.

Hey Hugo, as the Anniversary is starting to get close, I started trying to get people to help email the Google team at  proposals@google.com
Then I found your awesome picture and the popularity that it has gotten. I am also using a picture to show the google team in my email what it might look like. I do not think it is your picture, because there is no tardis in it, but it is very close to yours. So I was wondering if you could help out an help spread the word of where and what to email to the Google team, as they do take suggestions through email.

Thanks in advanced,
Fellow Whovian :)

Thanks for your support but unfortunately, I'm in university now so I guess I'm not eligible. But I think Google has a way of letting people submit doodles not for the Doodle 4 Google contest. I might try that.
