Morristown, NJ (June 26, 2015) – Doctor Puppet celebrates Doctor Who and its rich history through hand-crafted puppets and original stories. It was created by Alisa Stern in 2012. At first, it was just a Tumblr blog about the adventure of an Eleventh Doctor Puppet, but it soon grew into an animated web series starring all the Doctors! Doctor Puppet is currently made by a small team of professional artists, animators, and musicians. Together, they’ve made a dozen videos.
Alisa Stern produces, makes puppets, and animates. Rachel Gitlevich animates, makes props and sets, and paints backgrounds. Erin Natal storyboards and animates. Shelby Arnold makes props and sets. The whole team contributes to the brainstorming and writing process. Outside of Doctor Puppet, everyone has worked on animated TV shows, music videos, books, and many other creative projects.
Clips from Doctor Puppet have aired on several BBC channels, and it’s been featured in a BBC-produced documentary as well as Doctor Who Magazine. Steven Moffat once said that Doctor Puppet is “amazing!”
