A Time Lord's Pocket 3 by Police-Box-Traveler A Time Lord's Pocket 3 by Police-Box-Traveler
Here it is folks! The much anticipated Tom Baker edition of the "A Time Lord's Pocket" series of my photos, featuring the items you might find in the pocket of a Time Lord!

Here, we have the items most often associated with Tom Bakers 4th Doctor, that being his classic Sonic Screwdriver, his Tardis Key, His Yo-Yo, and of course his ever present bag of Jelly Babies.

A few notes on this picture; The bag for the Jelly Babies, I originally tried a white paper bag similar to the one he usually used, however, it had a tendency to wash out too easily and become over saturated and become lost in my photos, so I ended up using a small brown paper bag instead. I also had a hard time figuring out what font to use at the bottom of the picture too. I had wanted to find something kinda fun and typical of the 70's and Toms Bohemian type Doctor, I hope this one works ok. I also wound up displaying everything on a giant piece of white foam-core board to resemble the stark white interior of the Tardis from the classic series. I always try to make the picture look the way you'd find the Time Lord in question keeping his surroundings like, hence the marble surface for the 9th/10th Doctors Sonic in the first picture, the wooden surface for the all brass instruments in the second picture and of course, the very unnaturally white white in this picture.

If i get my new Sonic Screwdriver soon, I'll be using that one for my next picture. It's sort of a bridge between the classic Sonic, and the modern Sonic and may feature a steel finger ring like the River Song version of the Sonic Screwdriver in the Silence In The Library episode in season 4 of the new series.

OH! and before anyone in the USA asks, yes, those ARE actual Jelly Babies! :D

I know, but the up side is that the brand I get from the UK is much more pleasant in taste and texture.

This was done with what I had on hand, lol. If I was trying to put everything Tom Baker ever took out of his pockets as the Doctor this would have been a very busy picture indeed. I just stuck with the most well known items associated with his Doctor and left it at that.
