What do you get when you combine two icons of genre fiction, one world wide web and many hours of procrastination? Genuinely brilliant works by those mastercraftsmen; the fans.
Dan McDaid, British comic book artist/writer on such DWM strips as The First and Hotel Historia has takenÂ a fansÂ wish to see anÂ unforseen adventure between the Doctor and Sherlock Holmes and made it intoÂ a one page masterpiece.
The Automatic Man sees Sherlock Holmes, in a top hat rather than his familiar Deerstalker, and Dr Watson getting caught up in an intriguing Cyberman plot involving human hybrids – with the Tenth Doctor bursting through the scene.
Each character is more representative of their various images rather than realisticÂ models and his heavy shading recalls a lot of classic British comics like Dan Dare.
The piece was one of the many commissions that McDaid draws for anyone with a bit of spare cash and an over-active immagination.
