A 12 year-old girl from Suffolk has won a national competition to design a Doctor Who monster for Doctor Who Adventures. Jessica Rickarby’s design of a monster called ‘Screamer’ has been turned into a comic strip character for the weekly magazine and has been made into a 10 inch model, currently terrifying visitors to the Doctor Who Experience.
An expert panel of editorial staff judged the competition which asked readers to give the monster a name, a home planet, a weapon and special powers. The winning design was then turned into a comic strip by the Doctor Who Adventures team, which appears in this week’s issue, on sale now. This was then sent to a model maker, who created a model from the artwork. The ‘Screamer’ has just been put on display at the highly-praised Doctor Who Experience and will remain on show for approximately three months before being given to Jessica to keep.
