Season 5 - Episode 11
Vincent and the Doctor
Well. Um… Big question. But to me, Van Gogh is the finest painter of them all. Certainly the most popular, great painter of all time. The most beloved. His command of colour, the most magnificent. He transformed the pain of his tormented life into ecstatic beauty. Pain is easy to portray but to use your passion and pain to portray the ecstasy, joy and magnificence of our world… No one had ever done it before. Perhaps no one ever will again. To my mind that strange, wild man, who roamed the fields of Provence was not only the world’s greatest artist, but also, one of the greatest men who’ve ever lived.
This is my all-time favourite episode of Doctor Who. I cry every single time I see this scene. It is absolutely beautiful.
No one see the Underworld joke here? lol
It’s Viktor and Marcus Corvinus :) 2 of the three elders, we’re only missing Amelia
