Here's a silly thought, came to mind after stumbling upon a pretty well done piece of DeviantArt fanart while spending hours laughing heartily from the articles on that uncyclopedia-styled comedy "Doctor Who General" wiki: https://img00.deviantart.net/7b5b/i/2014/246/8/9/logopolis_by_mistressainley-d673a66.jpg

As an minor fan of anime (in the sense I haven't seen enough to call myself a fan but have liked the few series I've stuck with) nearly every idea JNT had would actually work far better as an anime of that time. Considering how dark or raunchy some of those toons could get it's a perfect fit for all of JNT's plots and cohorts: Bidmead's morose techno-dialogue, Cartmel's grandiose-yet-effectively-meaningless symbolism, and Saward's "little cravings". Not to mention the impractical-yet-eyecatching costumes, perfect for the medium!

I seriously can't think of a single thing presented in 1980's Doctor Who that wouldn't be comprehensive in a 80's90's era anime, ESPECIALLY Ol' Sixie's serials, it works rather nicely. I wonder what would have happened if JNT could've afforded a trip to Japan, how jazzed might be by the prospects! xD
