The Princely Doctor

We at Kasterborous are always partial to a concept mash-up – the more divergent the entity being pulled into the Whoinverse the better – so when IDW comic book artist Michael Dialynas squashed together the dark fairytales of the Eleventh Doctor and Antoine de Saint Exupéry’s beautiful 1943 children’s classic The Little Prince in this fantastic sketch – well it would be rude not to show it!

Taking his inspiration from French aviator Exupéry’s novella, where the narrator finds himself (like Exupéry’s own experiences) stranded when his plane crashes into the Sahara Desert.

While contemplating his predicament the narrator is approached by the Little Prince – a serious blond haired boy – who asks the Narrator to draw him a sheep. As the pair share their tales of life on Asteroid B-612, a mysterious rose and suffer through the narrow minded world of adults the pair finally build up the courage to search for a lifesaving supply of water.

Taking his cue from this pose-Dialynes perfectly captures the wide-eyed enthusiasm of the Doctor and his world.

Dialynes doesn’t just limit himself to the Whoniverse. Though his blog The Wooden Crown he’s brought together the worlds of Marvel, Game of Thrones and The Princess Bride all in the name of ‘what if?’


Andrew has left Kasterborous. Any article that appears on the site past February 2016 claiming to be written by Andrew Reynolds has been done so maliciously and without the authors consent. The author does not condone gambling in any form and would not seek to publicise the industry through a children's television show. If you like Doctor Who articles without a hefty dose of identity theft and gambling spam, why not check out
