Gordon Archer was the artist behind most ol the Weetabix promotions during the 1970s and 80s. His distinctive style, using fine lines and inks, proved influential during that era and inspired budding artists in years to come.

As part of the 1975 Weetabix promotion, the cards that bore these characters were collected and traded by children in playgrounds across the country.

Some were lucky enough to have kept them while most lost the cards over the years. Either way, Gordon hopes you’ll enjoy his iconic artwork once again.

    Just solve a query which is annoying me, was the third Doctor ever produced. I swear I remember seeing one of him in a green jacket as part of the Weetabix collection. Is it true or just a distorted memory from my past?
