Leonora Carrington

Leonora Carrington, English debutante turned Parisian surrealist turned Second World War escapee turned Mexican political activist turned co-founder of the Women’s Liberation Movement, has what would be her 98th birthday marked by a Google Doodle.

Her life is appropriately storied for the Doctor to look in on her, even if crocodiles punting isn’t an issue.

I’m pretty sure he’s met these guys as well.

The above are an example of using art as inspiration. Surreal figurative art makes a particularly smooth transition to the screen - Id make the above pair an alien ambassador and her translator, for example.
