New thread for the new comic!

So, it seems this is Third Doctor, post-Jo and pre-SJS.
I wonder if Powell is the companion for this adventure...

She looks familiar. Can't wait to see how things go.

I knew that...Nyssa's hair is longer. But she still looks familiar...I have no idea why.

Hmmm, could Cpl. Powell turn out to be a "lookalike" for Mary, Queen of Scots, perhaps...?

I was curious about the pendant Lady Robsart was wearing, and thought I might have found it - possibly your source picture when researching the story?

Image

Doesnt change whether or not it's an alien device <g> but it's fun to know for certain that it's based on a real piece of jewelery she wore.

(Tho I dont know how accurate the print is supposed to be since the other place I looked said no portrait of her survived)

Actually, that's one I've never seen before. The trouble is that there are no contemporary (done in her lifetime) portraits of Amye. There was a novel written about her (Kenilworth) in the early 1800s, which spawned a bit of an historical fixation on her story, and a lot of "portraits" of her were painted at that time which bear no resemblance whatsoever to the clothing or look of her actual era. Judging by the clothes and hairstyle in that one, it was likely done in the mid-17th century.

The brooches on our cover were inspired by surviving pieces I have in a book on England's crown jewels, as well as some items pictured in "Queen Elizabeth's Wardrobe Unlock'd."

That's pretty interesting .. I hadn't realized she'd been such a fixture for history buffs, but a royal love triangle and murder mystery should have clued me in <g>

So ... she's got a piece of jewelery made popular by the Queen, or at least popular of the time period. Potentially even a gift from her, hmm? (useless speculation, I know)

**another edit** well, the one in the print really isnt a cross, now that I look at it further - I thought it was one with extra beading or jewels at first, but it's just square/diamond shape with decoration

.... also funny you printed that right when I was editing the photo from a hot link to her biography to a photobucket, and had put in a remark about another site saying no portrait had survived

The shortened biography that I found it in, if anyone is curious
is at http://www.berkshirehistory.com/bios/arobsart.html

I'm beginning to think that Amye's death will be very soon, the shattered pendant on the cover presumably broke when she fell. And maybe we'll meet the "Stalker".

Whenever there's an unsolved historical mystery, the answer is always "Aliens did it". :)

Although if it happens while she's dancing about being cured*, the alien that did it would have been the Doctor <g>, in a chain of event sort of way.


*from Fangarius's comment on her cure, from page 11

Well, John, be thankful it wasn’t Anacin, from what I recall from those commercials the poor woman would be dancing wildly about free from her ailment. Though okay, not exactly what The Doctor had in mind… could you imagine the history books on THAT one?

I've got a a little nitpick on page 13. Most of the household chairs of the Tudor era tended to be rather tall backed, mostly wooden, and ornately carved. I was thinking the chairs you drew on that page look a bit anachronistic. The heavily stuffed one Lord Dudley sits in looks rather out of place. Also,the rather plain "mission" style chair Henry Sidney is using is not something a man of any stature in the court would have sitting behind his desk.

Perhaps. But I didn't have any way to research what I was drawing when I did that page. So I made it up.
