The History of 007

The history of 007 infographic

The History of 007 infographic from cabletv.com highlights the actors who have played Bond, the cars he drove, the guns he used, and the villains he famously fought to save the world.

Good blend of photos, illustrations and charts to tell the story of 50 years of James Bond.

The Timeline of Doctor Who

A highly detailed historical Timeline of Doctor Who from Cabletv.com!

Check out this complete timeline of Doctor Who from 1963 to present, including episodes, seasons, companions, villains, and more. Scroll down to follow all the Doctor’s adventures through time. A Fantastic resource for any Doctor Who fan.

First and formost it’s a timeline of the Doctor Who episodes from 1963-2011.  I’ve posted earlier Doctor Who related infograpics here before (The Doctor Who infographic), but none that contained this level of detail.  From left-to-right you have seasons, episodes, which Doctor, which companions, key villains and additional facts.  When you view the timeline on the original page, the episode titles are also listed on the left side and aligned with the infographic.

There are a couple design changes I would propose that would have made the data easier to understand.  One of the things I love is that there is no legend, or any need for one.  All of the descriptions for the color-coding and data visualizations is included in the visual designs.  However, some of the color-coding is inconsistent.  The color for Rose Tyler as the first of the modern companions is green in the timeline, but then additional facts about Rose are colored blue in the last column.  This is also true about the character of the The Master, and other companions, where a consistent color-coding would have made the connections easier for the reader to understand.

HBO Recycling Program

The HBO Recycling Program is a visualization by Craig Robinson that shows many of the actors and actresses that HBO has used in multiple series.  This was posted as part of an article on Grantland.com.

Actors who have appeared in three or more episodes of multiple scripted, live-action, original, HBO series since OZ (excluding miniseries).

Inspired by the original visualization, an interactive version was created by Zack Grossbart that allows you to highlight either the show, or the actor, and it will display the connections.

 

Click on two shows, and the interactive version will highlight only those actors in both shows.

 

Zack’s interactive infographic is made with PaperJS, underscore.js, and a little JQuery.  He has made the code open source, and it can be used to display the connections between other groups as well, if anyone has the motivation to map their own connections.
