I used to love the Mr Men books when the kids were younger, so much so that I bought the whole set. Roger Hargreaves originally drew and authored them and now his son, Adam continues his legacy, with new Mr and Miss characters already added to the range. You might have gathered that I also love Doctor Who which makes me pleased as punch to see the launch of a new range of Doctor Who Mr Men styled books, with the first batch of titles, ‘Dr First,’ ‘Dr Fourth,’ ‘Dr Eleventh’ and ‘Dr Twelfth’ to read and devour!
Addtionally Dr Twelfth has even been brought to life as a short animated book with Missy, aka actress Michelle Gomez narrating the story, so this was great to watch. Also, to celebrate the launch the official BBC Doctor Who Fan Show interviewed Adam Hargreaves, who not only drew a Tardis live, but created a new ‘Little Miss Dee’ character based on fan show presenter, Christel Dee. Little Miss Dee then also ended up in her own animated story, again voiced by Missy.
With all of these new gifts to read and watch I just couldn’t resist using this as inspiration for me to create my own mini animation themed around Little Miss Dee’s continuuing adventures, but this time she had Mr Clever helping her! In fact he cleverly organised a surprise present in an exciting place to help celebrate these new Dr Men series of books.
So basically what I’m trying to say is my animation involves The Tardis, sleep, lots of shouting, vortex travel and cake in the order lol. Having gone live on social media etc it’s great to get really nice comments about it, including the DW fan show themselves, who responded to it with this brilliant pun, ‘Consider us Mr and Little Miss Mind Blown!
Therefore, I hope you enjoy watching it too!
