The Road To The Thirteenth Doctor #1 (Credit: Titan / Klebs Jr)The Road To The Thirteenth Doctor #1 (Credit: Titan / Will Brooks)The Road To The Thirteenth Doctor #1 (Credit: Titan / Robert Hack)Titan Comics and BBC Studios have announced The Road To The Thirteenth Doctor – a three-part comic event beginning this July and leading into Titan’s all-new Thirteenth Doctor ongoing comic series launching in the autumn.

The Road To The Thirteenth Doctor features new adventures of the Tenth, Eleventh, and Twelfth Doctors written by James Peaty (Supergirl) and illustrated by a host of amazing creators, with a Robert Hack (Sabrina, Archie) cover on each.

In Titan’s The Road to The Thirteenth Doctor comics, the Tenth Doctor encounters lost, ghostly spaceships, the Eleventh Doctor and Alice visit a robot-infested 19th Century San Francisco, and the Twelfth Doctor finds London’s Piccadilly Circus transformed into a wasteland of emptiness and Pterodactyls.

Each issue contains a serialized short story from the creative team behind the new Thirteenth Doctor on-going comic series - written by Jody Houser, with art by Rachael Stott and Enrica Angiolini.

The Seventh Doctor and Ace Come to Titan ComicsBookmark and Share

Friday, 16 February 2018 - Reported by Marcus
Doctor Who: The Seventh Doctor #1DOCTOR_WHO_7D_BLACK_AND_WHITE_PROMO_ART.JPG (Credit: Titan )BBC Worldwide Americas and Titan Comics have announced that the Seventh Doctor is back, in comic form.

This brand-new three-part comic series stars the Seventh Doctor, as played by Sylvester McCoy, alongside classic companion Ace, played by Sophie Aldred.

Released in June 2018 with a double-sized first issue, DOCTOR WHO: THE SEVENTH DOCTOR #1, is written by Seventh Doctor script editor Andrew Cartmel, and writer Ben Aaronovitch who wrote the seventh Doctor stories Remembrance of the Daleks and Battlefield.

Actor Sylvester McCoy starred as the Seventh Doctor from 1987 to 1989 anchoring hundreds of novels and comic strips before regenerating in the 1996 TV movie. As well as this new comic, the Seventh Doctor’s era lives on in a tremendously successful series of audios from Big Finish. McCoy’s portrayal as the Doctor was, at first, a light-hearted eccentric who darkened into a secretive, mysterious, and cunning planner across the course of his tenure.

In Titan Comics’ new mini-series, an unknown alien intelligence in orbit around the Earth. Astronauts under attack. A terrifying, mysterious landing in the Australian interior. The future of the world itself at stake. Counter Measures activated. The Seventh Doctor and Ace are slap bang in the middle of it all! This is OPERATION VOLCANO!

Ben Aaronovitch and Andrew Cartmel return to the TARDIS, on the 30th anniversary of fan-favorite episode Remembrance of the Daleks with The Seventh Doctor comics, and are joined by illustrator Christopher Jones (The Third Doctor) and colorist Marco Lesko (Robotech, The Ninth Doctor) to bring astonishing twists and turns to the lives of the Seventh Doctor, and his companions, with Titan’s new comic series.

The debut issue comes with four variant covers to collect: three art covers by artists Alice X. Zhang, Simon Myers, and Christopher Jones, and a photo cover by Will Brooks. The Seventh Doctor will also materialize with a back-up strip written by Twelfth Doctor scribe Richard Dinnick, with art by Jessica Martin (Actor: Doctor Who: The Greatest Show In The Galaxy, Voice actor: Doctor Who: Voyage of the Damned).

Users can be part of this iconic moment, that has accompanied each Doctor’s regeneration since the BBC series began in 1963. The Doctor Who camera effect is available worldwide and users can share their experience with friends via Facebook Stories, posting it on their Facebook page, or saving it to share elsewhere.

Sergei Kuharsky, EVP Franchise and Digital Enterprises, BBC Worldwide Americas said
Regeneration is the most distinct and fundamental attribute of Doctor Who.

A new Doctor Who tribute show has been announced.

Arrows of Time – A Tribute to Doctor Who is a new full-dome planetarium show (where a planetarium’s dome is used to show visuals), being premiered in Brno in the Czech Republic on November 19th with a second performance on the 20th. 

The show will go on a global planetarium fringe tour in 2018 *dates yet to be announced) which will conclude in a three-week residency at the Edinburgh Fringe.   Duncan Hendy (writer, composer, and co-director) describes the production as ‘a new multi-Doctor adventure, four years in the making and approved by the BBC. He said
It features the latest in technology and is a 3D, 4K, surround sound phenomenon! And places the audience at the centre of the show.
Soundalikes have been used including John Guilor, who famously provided the voice of the First Doctor in ‘The Day of the Doctor’ and the BBC DVD recreation of the missing material from Planet of Giants in addition to Big Finish stars Christopher Thomson and Jake Dudman. The actors have also been motion captured for animated avatars to be used in the production. Ten Doctor’s likenesses will be used including Sir John Hurt’s War Doctor in addition to a new villain known as the Given, also voiced by John Guilor. The Given is described as ‘a foe older than time itself’.

Hendy says about the musical soundtrack
The musical sections of the show between each episode feature the words of the Doctor themselves, translated into Latin and composed as an oratorio, and is an integral part of the show.“ Video has been provided by NASA and the show is a co-production with the Brno Planetarium.
 More information can be found on the website where tickets can be purchased and also a soundtrack is available in MP3 format.
