Thanks to the iPlayer, I have never really been able to picture the characters in Cabin Pressure as looking anything unlike the actors who play them … this is fine for Douglas and Carolyn, but Martin in particular is supposed to be the opposite of tall and authoritative Benedict Cumberbatch, so as I listened again I tried to force myself to picture him in a new way, and came up with someone who’s somewhere between Steve Punt and Schmendrick the Magician.
With bonus Arthur and an embarrassing noncommittal attempt at Douglas.
So adorable. Love it.
Well that’s really rather brilliant! Superb Cabin Pressure art.
I love fan art where the artists try not to imitate the actors themselves. The best is the sketch of the aviators. The expressions are lovely. Benedict as Martin doesn’t seem very authoritative in the promo images to me, but I have always imagined him tall. I don’t know why. I think it’s because he seems much more gawky and awkward if he were legitimately tall. Maybe just more gangly than Benedict?
Lovely artwork otherwise.
