The pre-2005 series had a Doctor who was dressed in vaguely Edwardian clothing, who spoke with an RP accent, who had his stories adapted into books. That’s just the way it was.

) - arguably the end of the line for "Classic" doctor who. Previous instalments had covered the TV series from start to end
, as well as the odd novelisation
or movie. Possibly of greatest interest are the years before the new TV series where, TV movie
aside, the franchise survived and evolved in strange directions via novels
and audio stories
. Then, at the outmost reaches of Whodom, there is the Book of the War
and the strange world of Faction Paradox

Young Edd Gould
always enjoyed drawing comics of himself and his friends. Growing up in the internet age, his doodles
evolved into Flash animations of increasing complexity, and in time Edd and pals Tom Ridgewell
and Matt Hargreaves teamed up to produce an "Eddsworld"
series of online webtoons and comics
At first crude and halting, the group's "eddisodes"
progressed from surreal shorts
into full-fledged productions that pushed the boundaries of amateur web animation, with expressive characters
, full soundtracks
, complex effects, and a fast-paced, off-kilter sense of humor: MovieMakers
- Rock Bottom
- Hammer & Fail
At its height, the college co-op was producing shorts for Mitchell & Webb
and the UN Climate Change Conference
, fielding offers
from Paramount and Cartoon Network, and racking up millions of hits on YouTube
Work slowed, however, when Gould was diagnosed with leukemia
-- a relatively survivable form, though, and Gould carried on working gamely
through his hospital stays. So it came as a shock last week when Matt and Tom announced that Edd had passed away
, prompting an outpouring
in his short 23 years.
