In May 2020 The Mail on Sunday ran a feature on Humphryes to mark the release of Royal Mail commemorative coin presentation packs which he had colourised, celebrating the 75th anniversary of Victory in Europe Day

Seventy-four videos are currently available, which have accrued 9.5 million views (as of February 2020). The Houston Press asserted: "BabelColour is one of the top producers of on-line video content. His work is almost unrivaled in popularity", with the BBC's AfterShow and the Edinburgh News both citing Humphryes as a "colourisation and compositing legend".

In April 2020, Humphryes was thanked in the credits of two Doctor Who lockdown webcasts - firstly a special 13 minute Sarah Jane Adventures minisode entitled Farewell, Sarah Jane, billed by its writer Russell T Davies as "The final Sarah Jane Adventure" and also in a sequel to The Girl In The Fireplace, which was entitled 'Pompadour', staring Sophia Myles and penned by Steven Moffat.


In February 2019 the London Evening Standard ran a feature on his colourisation work. Humphryes stated, "I try to be bold with my colours – most colourisers seem frightened of the medium and make their work pastel and faded. I’m of the opinion that if I’m going to add colour I may as well go the whole hog and make it bold and bright and colourful. That’s what real life should be, after all!"

In September 2019, Humphryes announced a tenth anniversary, feature-length re-imagining of The Ten Doctors serial with an expanded cast list, including Nicholas Briggs as the voice of the Daleks, impressionist and comedian Jon Culshaw as the Third Doctor and Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, actor John Guilor (reprising his role as the First Doctor from the 50th anniversary story The Day of the Doctor) and television producer Philip Hinchcliffe (reprising his role from the 1975 Doctor Who serial The Brain of Morbius) The production's trailer was recommended in Doctor Who Magazine issue 546 (January 2020) and the project's use of AI upscaling prompted the inclusion of Humphryes in an article on neural networking by Digital Trends. Originally using the working title The Ten Doctors Re-Imagined, it was re-branded The Timeless Doctors in March 2020.


In August 2018 the Edinburgh News ran an interview with Humphryes about his restoration of colour film of 1930s Edinburgh

Humphryes runs the Babelcolour Channel on Twitter. In August 2018 he began focusing on the history of London. He has 50,000 followers, as of April 2020.

On 17 August 2018, Humphryes edited colour film of 1920s London which had 4.4 million views and prompted an article in The Daily Mail.

On 8 November 2018 Humphryes tweeted his own recitation of the Great War poem In Flanders Fields to mark the centenary of Armistice Day. This video was used by The Daily Mirror to head their article on war poetry


in September 2017, the Radio Times ran a feature on the appearance of Steven Moffat in Humphryes' 11th Anniversary YouTube upload - a story which was widely covered by other news sites, including NME, IMDb, Digital Spy GamesRadar and Screen Rant and recommended in Doctor Who Magazine issue 517 (November 2017).

In 2017 - at the suggestion of actor and screenwriter Mark Gatiss - Humphryes created a two-part web series entitled 'The Almost Doctors'. It incorporated newly recorded voice work by Jonathon Carley and Jake Dudman to chronicle the list of actors shortlisted for the role of Doctor Who in the 1960s and '70s. The series employed a combination of editing, CGI and video compositing techniques to lift actors from archive film and place them into contemporary episodes of Doctor Who. In June 2017 the BBC's AfterShow promoted the series, referring to Humphryes as a "colourisation and compositing legend" with BBC America promoting episode two as "exceptional". Episode one was also recommended as a monthly pick in Doctor Who Magazine issue 514 and episode two was recommended in Doctor Who Magazine issue 512.


In 2014 Humphryes assisted researchers of the BBC2 documentary series 'The Secret History of My Family', which was broadcast on Thursday 10 March 2016. Episode one chronicled the family and descendants of his 4 x Great-Grandfather Robert Gadbury, tracing their lineage from 1830s London to present-day Tasmania. Humphryes is second cousin (twice removed) to former Tasmanian premier Albert Ogilvie


He received commendations for his colourisation work in 2015 from the Doctor Who showrunner, head writer and producer Steven Moffat, who cited Humphryes as one of "the next generation of creatives". In September 2017 Moffat recorded an anniversary tribute to Humphryes on YouTube, stating his colourisation output was "beautiful, impeccable, gorgeous work and genuinely among my favourite things on the internet"

In 2015 Humphryes colourised the cover of Mark Iveson's biographical reference book "Cursed Horror Stars"


Following its DVD release in June 2013 the re-colourised version has become the broadcast default, being subsequently televised in the US on Retro TV on 15 October 2014 and KBTC Public Television on Saturday 23 January 2016. It is also the version currently available for subscription download in the US on BritBox and was live-streamed by Twitch on four occasions in June 2018 and January 2019.


The newly colourised Mind of Evil was premiered at the British Film Institute on 10 March 2013. Humphryes was in attendance to answer questions on stage about the re-colourisation process The recolourised episodes also received a special screening, with a Q&A Restoration Panel, at Birmingham's annual Flatpack Film Festival on Saturday 30 March 2013 and at the Belfast Film Festival on Thursday 18 April 2013

Clips and details of the serial's recolourisation were covered by a special feature on the BBC evening news on 12 June 2013


In February 2012 Humphryes was engaged by SVS Resources to recolourise monochrome footage from the 1975 Doctor Who serial Terror of the Zygons in preparation for a special extended "director's cut" of the story on DVD. The monochrome film - consisting of a cutting copy and dub track in mixed colour and monochrome formats - had been discovered amongst the estate of the serial's film editor Ian McKendrick and returned to the BBC in 2008 The recolourisation work was completed to a tight deadline and consequently employed some shortcut techniques, including flat colour washes for certain elements such as clothing, which would not normally be employed by Humphryes.

In 2012 Humphryes wrote a personal treatise on Doctor Who entitled 'Teatime and an Open Mind' which was published in the Doctor Who non-fiction book "You and Who" by Miwk Publishing. The book's editor JR Southall wrote in Starburst Magazine, "That internet legend from YouTube, known usually as BabelColour, submitted a much longer essay. It was an excellent piece of writing, and very important for a couple of reasons... it kind of gave the whole project a feeling of legitimacy. Now I could tell people that Stuart Humphryes had made a submission already, and even quote an extract from it as an example". In November 2014 Humphryes was one of the "big names in the Whovian community" interviewed by the Houston Press for his positive critical opinion of Series 8 of Doctor Who.


In 2009 Humphryes and Russell reunited to assess the viability of re-colourising the 1971 Doctor Who serial The Mind of Evil which only existed in the BBC Archives as a monochrome film print. Their test sequence eventually led to the Doctor Who Restoration Team commissioning Humphryes in 2011 to recolourise the entire episode. According to Doctor Who: The Complete History, it was achieved "by a combination of hand colouring by multimedia artist Stuart Humphryes, and motion estimation software". Between 2011–2013 Humphryes was the sole colourising artist working alongside the video restoration company SVS Resources to complete the commercial colourisation of The Mind of Evil for the BBC.

Between 2009 and 2015 Humphryes uploaded a four-part web series entitled 'The Ten Doctors'. It was an unofficial Doctor Who drama incorporating re-edited archival material from TV shows and movies connected by newly recorded dialogue and special effects. Episode three was premièred at the 'Armada Con 23' Doctor Who Convention before its on-line release. The trailers and episodes have exceeded 950,000 views on YouTube. The web series has been recommended by SFX Magazine and the Doctor Who Fan Club of Australia. Humphryes has been interviewed about the project a number of times, including the Houston Press and the on-line magazine Theta Morbius Times (Issue 1; 2010) with the opening episode being nominated as one of the 8 Most Amazing Fan Videos on YouTube by Digital Spy.


Humphryes established The BabelColour Channel on YouTube on 10 August 2006. He declined the YouTube Partnership scheme and does not monetise his output, stating "I am not a YouTube Partner. I do not monetise any videos. I do what I do without reward".

Between 2006–2008 he produced work for the BabelFish Colourisation Website In 2012 he established his own colourisation website at


In 2005 Humphryes collaborated with James Russell, a design engineer who was one of the founder members of the Doctor Who Restoration Team and the son of film director Ken Russell to colourise the surviving 35mm film from the 1965 Doctor Who serial The Daleks' Master Plan. The colourised footage was incorporated into "The Dalek Tapes" documentary on the 2006 DVD release of Genesis of the Daleks

In 2005 Humphryes colourised a series of Tele-snaps for issue 2 of "Nothing At The End of the Lane" – the magazine of Doctor Who Research and Restoration in which he was interviewed about his colourisation work. He returned to this publication in 2008 to colourise the cover of their omnibus reprint of issues 1 and 2.


In 1996 he appeared as a contestant in two episodes of the UK Gold TV quiz series 'Goldmaster'. In 1999, his role as fallback contestant for BBC1's prime-time evening game show 'Whatever you Want' was reported in Doctor Who Magazine issue 276, which ran with a photograph of Humphryes in costume alongside the other contestants.


Stuart Humphryes (born 10 December 1969) is an English multimedia artist for print, film and television, chiefly known for his work colourising the British television series Doctor Who. He is widely known by his alias "BabelColour", a public persona which was created in 2006 with the launch of his YouTube channel.


On 30 September his tweet of a 1943 photograph, apparently showing the anachronous use of a mobile device, made international news. In the UK it was covered by media sites such as LADbible and tabloids including The Daily Mirror, The Sun and Daily Mail, whilst in the US it was picked up by Fox News. Other international coverage included stories in Russia, Iran, Taiwan, Hungary, China and Vietnam.
