Doctor’s Cot Gallifreyan: A Fan-Made Writing System

Doctor’s Cot Gallifreyan: A Fan-Made Writing Systemzoom in

Doctor Who fan Brittany Goodman created her own original phonetic system based off the imagery on the Doctor’s cot seen in Doctor Who episode 6.7 A Good Man Goes To War (screen cap here). She’s created this guide showing her system and how to use it. She has created the version above with the International Phonetic Alphabet and another with American English and is planning to make additional versions for other languages.

Goodman also created a video, embedded below, demonstrating how to use the system to translate the phrase, “Hello, I’m the Doctor!”

You can also visit Goodman’s website, where she’s got a tutorial on learning the system, honing your skills, and answers to the frequently asked questions. Take a look at some of her sample translations to see the end results. This system is very cool and the resulting images are beautiful. It’s no wonder some people want to use this to create tattoos or other keepsakes. And, yes, she is generally OK if you want to use the system for tattoos.
