The Other Penguin Doctors
It's the mini-anniversary for the Best Television Show in the Universe™ – ten years ago today the regenerated version of Doctor Who got its premier with "Rose", creating a brand new generation of Whovians. While we don't have anything super-grand to showcase for this mini-anniversary, we do have something tucked deep in our sleeves.
You might remember that for the 50th anniversary of the series, in 2013, we created The Eleven Penguin Doctors wallpaper series. Well, I originally drew 13 but only had the time to colour the Main Eleven – the other two being The War Doctor (John Hurt) and the mysterious Evil Future Doctor, The Valeyard (Michael Jayston). In case you were wondering 'where is Capaldi?', remember that I drew these prior to his début. In fact I'm not even sure if his costume was revealed at that point.
Anyway, here are the Two Other Penguin Doctors. Perhaps one day, if Pablo let's me have the time off TAGAP 3, I can colour these as well!
Happy 10th Anniversary, New Who!

Penguin rehab centre needs help
Penguin Place is wildlife reserve in New Zealand that runs a penguin hospital. Currently they are housing about 50 penguins that are suffering from wounds caused by unprecedented aggressiveness of the local barracouta fish population. At the hospital, the penguins can recuperate in peace while adding extra kilos to carry them through their moult.
The problem? According to the rehabilitators, their usual suppliers have run out of the fish the penguins need; Salmon smolt or silverside. This sadly means soon they can no longer look after our waddling friends, unless they can acquire funds to purchase the penguin food at extra cost from elsewhere.
If you have the means to donate towards helping out the poorly penguins of New Zealand, you can find the details on TVNZ news site.

Penguin counting at Penguin DT and ZSL London Zoo
It's 2015! Most folks are forced to begin the new year by doing an inventory, but for some the gig is more fun than for others. For us it's about counting penguins – and to be precise, about checking what penguins from my seemingly-endless collection we have featured as Weekly Penguins and what we've missed.
First Weekly from this inventory session us this ZSL London Zoo penguin fridge magnet. Coincidentally, the ZSL London Zoo did their own animal inventory recently, and the results are in; One Rockhopper – that would be Ricky – and 70 Humboldts, including 10 new chicks! The Zoo posted this video of featuring the residents of the zoo being inventoried.
