Time Travel is a staple of our various fictional friends’ tales, whether a madman in a box, a captain sling-shotting around the sun to 1968 or a couple of righteous dudes who justwant you to be excellent to each other.

Whooshman-Bicarbonate Films, in conjunction with ‘An Amateur Comics Historian’ and Captain Jack Harkness, Presents:

TEN REAL-LIFE CHARACTERS IN FICTIONAL TIME-TRAVEL STORIES!

10) VINCENT VAN GOGH


When he discovered a strange figure in the background of a Van Gogh painting, The Eleventh Doctor and his intrepid companion Amy Pond decided to seek out the man himself.  The ensuing adventure is one of the better episodes of Eleven’s tenure, ending with Amy and The Doctor taking a despondent Vincent into the future to see how he will be viewed by history.  Sadly, it’s not enough to offset Van Gogh’s fate, but his overwhelming emotion at realizing that he won’t be forgotten is truly wonderful to behold, making for a bitterweet-yet-somehow-inevitable ending…

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture!

And a nice red uniform.
