Well You Know My Name Is Nimon

Well You Know My Name Is Nimon

This DOCTOR WHO story + this old cartoon x being up far too late = this picture.

Yeah, "The Horns of Nimon" is (or was, I haven't been in WHO fandom in a looooong time) a fairly notorious installment of the long-running English sci-fi series. Fun trivia - my local PBS station offered an actual script from this serial as a gift during one of their pledge drives. I wonder if anyone got stuck with it?

I can't remember when I saw that "Simon" cartoon, but I'm never going to remove that theme song from my brain. NEVER! So one night, somehow the song popped into my head and I started substituting "Nimon" for "Simon." This piece of fanart is the tragic result.

Oh, and by the way? I did make sure to have "Police Box" written on the TARDIS. It's just too small to see it. Trust me, it's there.

I thought now would be as good a time as any to post this picture on the blog, since "The Horns of Nimon" is set to debut on American DVD in just a few short weeks!


  1. I think he might be a bum-looker though...

  2. Bwahaha, I had almost forgotten about those sketches!

    Having watched "The Horns of Nimon" ages ago, he probably totally was one.
