Comic Preview – Doctor Who: The Ninth Doctor #1

 

Since gaining the Doctor Who license in 2014, Titan Comics launched 3 ongoing series, based on the hit BBC TV series, about the crusading Time Lord known only as the Doctor.  They currently publish comics starring the 10th (David Tennant), 11th (Matt Smith) and the 12th and current Doctor (Peter Capaldi). This week a fourth series joins them, as Titan releases Doctor Who: The Ninth Doctor #1.

 

Doctor Who: The Ninth Doctor from TItan Comics  Cover A by Alice X. Zhang

Unlike the other three series, The Ninth Doctor is a 5 issue miniseries, not an ongoing.    It will be the first of a series of miniseries to feature the other nine Doctors (and perhaps a War Doctor series, if fans demand it, and the BBC allows it).

The Ninth Doctor Era has not had lot of spin off materal. Since he was only the Doctor for one season, there wasn’t a lot of time to produce anything.  There were only about 6 novels written, and IDW did not feature Christopher Eccelston’s Doctor in any ongoing series, or even a miniseries of his own.   He did pop up in two IDW comic series that featured all the previous incarnations (Doctor Who: The Forgotten and Doctor Who:Prisoners of Time) and of course, he was featured in the Doctor Who Magazine comic each month while he was the Doctor in 2005.
