"Sadly there are 108 "lost" episodes of Doctor Who that now exist only in audio form ... Thanks to graphically-talented fans ... these lost episodes are being given a new lease of life. Instrumental in this is US-based artist and film-maker Garrett Gilchrist. ... Check out Gilchrist's work so far." - SFX Magazine.

"An ambitious project" - The Guardian

"One of the most impressive has to be artist Garrett Gilchrist's WhoSprites project. High-quality digital artwork created [and] animated by Garrett himself ... gives a real feel for the story, and is the next best thing to having the episode back in the BBC archives." - Anthony Harvison, Den of Geek

"Wonderful to see ... everyone was very impressed and we can't wait to see what Garrett and his crew come up with next! Very highly recommended!" - The TARDIS Project

"Visuals faithful both to the audio and to the show's original vintage appearance." - John Scott Lewinski, WIRED Magazine blog
