3 Works in The Hollow Men - T. S. Eliot
10 Aug 2018
More meta from the Meta café. This time from 2012. This is basically THE Tenth Doctor meta I always wanted to write and never knew how. (Should have suspected it'd all come down to Eliot...)
The idea for this first came to me after watching The Lazarus Experiment wherein the Doctor and Lazarus quote 'The Hollow Men' by T. S. Eliot. I sat down to read it, and was completely and utterly blown away. This was the result, because that poem is the Tenth Doctor. (To create this I ended up reading Heart of Darkness and Dante and sort-of taught myself how to use a proper graphics programme. All in all it was 7-8 months between idea and final result.)
So without further ado I shall let you see for yourselves. Lengthy meta-heavy notes at the end explaining all my choices/thoughts.
