In honor of Jodie Whittaker’s birthday on June 17, Doctor Who fan artists on Twitter collaborated on a graphic novel adapted from the story Press Play by Pete McTighe.

The first tweet in the series begins a thread of beautiful fan artwork illustrating Press Play.

The collaboration received a resounding endorsement from McTighe, who tweeted “Gorgeous Doctor Who fans have illustrated ‘Press Play’ ” and “This is beautiful!! What a treat to see such amazing artists bring my story to life. You’ve all done an INCREDIBLE job” from his private Twitter account.

McTighe’s short story, featuring the thirteenth Doctor receiving a recorded communication from granddaughter Susan, first appeared in audio form, to the delight of Doctor Who fans, during the COVID-19 pandemic as a fundraiser for essential workers.

Be sure to click on the first tweet and read the entire thread. The fan artwork, lovingly created for the fandom in honor of Jodie Whittaker’s birthday, is not to be missed.
