Dr Who - The Silent by Kaduflyer Dr Who - The Silent by Kaduflyer
I grew up with Dr Who, it's part of my heritage as a British SF and fantasy nerd. If you would have told the little kid, that was me hiding behind the sofa, oh so long ago, that one day I'd be making monsters for Dr Who I'd never have believed you.
But for the past 12 months or so that's exactly what I've been doing. And at times, huddled on freezing cold sets up in Wales where the show is shot, I find it hard to wipe the big grin off my face or suppress the little giggles of joy as I realise just how damn lucky I am to do the job I do!

The design brief for these was a cross between grey aliens and Edvard Munch's The Scream painting. I absolutely hate grey aliens so there's more Munch here than ET.

The top photo's are of the sculpt. The middle photo's are of the painted masks. I actually made them quite pinkish as I wanted them to look soft and babyish. The open mouthed version you can see was used to create a digital morph of the creature's mouth's distorting as they used their psychic attack!
The bottom picture is a publicity shot from the show. They were eventually shot using extremely washed out colours, so all my subtle paint work got lost and in the end they looked closer to those damn Grey buggers after all!....curses!!!

Don't have BBC on my satellite system & can't watch the show like I'd want to, but I have just got my wife to start watching Dr Who for the 1st time ever, on Hulu. This guy here was her intro into the series. She thought it was awesome. Thank you for doing such a great job & for giving some behind the scenes here on dA. You are greatly appreciated. :)

I told her what you said & she told me to tell you that "she's converted." Now she wants a shirt. LOL :D

Haha…the BBC are quite miserly with their shirts…I got a 50th anniversary one last year and a zippered fleece a few years before that (but only because it was to big for the girl they sent it to!) so she might have to wait a while. Buy her a nice Dalek embroidered sweatshirt for Christmas!!

Oh, I'm sorry, I didn't mean that she wants one from you. I told her that I was planning on buying one for myself (just a t-shirt from amazon.com) & she wants one as well. I didn't realize she liked it that much, but I guess she wants to advertise now. LOL

No worries I knew you weren't asking that….oddly enough though I was given a Dr Who body warmer this morning (after saying they were a bit mean with their handouts!) It's not the most stylish piece of clothing but hey!…it's free!!….and my girlfriend will probably pinch it!!

Thanks for posting these, I'm glad I found them! I've been a Dr. Who fan for a long time and visited the UK last February. I decided to use some of the characters for my outdoor Halloween display this year so I'm doing Weeping Angels and Silents since they are both pretty freaky. Most of the pics I found didn't show the angles I needed but these do. :)

I'm glad they help.
These guys have proved very popular with the fans, I can only hope some of the new creatures in the latest season prove as popular!
:)
