It looks as if the Doctor’s adventures are going to continue, even further, in new comics from Titan. BBC Worldwide and Titan Comics are going to feature new stories of not only the 12th Doctor, but the 10th and 11th as well! Check out the full press release from the BBC below. 

 

Press Release: In the universe of Doctor Who regenerations bring not only a new Doctor but often a fresh look and feel to the series and BBC Worldwide is bringing that same approach to Doctor Who comics as it signs a new deal with Titan Comics. The deal will open up the world of Doctor Who and provide fans with new stand alone adventures featuring the Tenth Doctor, Eleventh Doctor and after the new series launch, the Twelfth Doctor. Creative and production teams will be announced in the coming weeks and the first comic books will be released in 2014.

The Doctor Who Christmas special, The Time of the Doctor, saw Matt Smith’s Eleventh Doctor regenerate into the Twelfth Doctor, played by Peter Capaldi. The next season is now in production and will premiere in 2014. In 2013, Doctor Who set ratings and social media records for BBC AMERICA.

Doctor Who is sold to over 200 territories across the world and last year was awarded the Guinness World Record for the largest TV drama simulcast ever after the 50th Anniversary special was broadcast to 98 countries at the same time as well in thousands of cinemas across the globe.

Titan Comics is the comics and graphic novel division of global publishing giant Titan, a pioneer that has proven itself over three decades with internationally-recognized brands such as James Bond and Sherlock Holmes, as well as creator-owned successes like Tank Girl, Lenore, and Death Sentence. Titan's magazine division is the largest publisher of licensed entertainment properties in the US.

Everyone knows all about the 10th,11th  Doctor. What they should do is create stories for the 8th Doctor.

 Agreed! However, there are radio dramas of his adventures.

The Eighth Doctor radio dramas by Big Finish are outstanding. I highly recommend them. Although the TV movie was unpleasant in general, I think McGann was robbed of a great opportunity. I wish Russell T. Davies had started new episodes with McGann instead of Eccleston. I think "The Night of the Doctor" proved how well he meshes with the current series.

Anyway, I haven't picked up a comic book in years so I probably won't start because of this series. I hope those who do speak up about how good or bad it is.

I have been pondering the whole 12th Doctor thing for awhile. As a big Doctor Who fan I of course want the series to continue for many more years, in all sorts of media, but there is the whole Time Lords only get 12 regenerations. The Master has beat it by cheating, something the Doctor wouldn't due. So anyway an idea poped into my head the other day. Spoiler Alert:

River Song gave up all of her regenerations to save the Doctor, whom she had poisoned. We don't know how many regenerations she herself had left, but it may be possible that she didn't just save the Doctor's life, she may in fact have given him additional regenerations. What do you think?

Redshirt1 - The 2013 Christmas Special (The Time of the Doctor) addressed the 12 regeneration limit quite clearly. I imagine there are places to find it online, but this is not the place to discuss such matters.

It also features the regeneration from Smith to Capaldi so you'll definitely want to check it out.

 @ joe4306 - I agree with you 1000%.  Baker was the best Doctor!!

Joe & Silverspear, so instead of "timey-whiney" you prefer "chronic hysteresis".

HomestarRunner 1/22/2014 10:24:22 AM

Eleven: It's a... uh... timey wimey... thing.

War Doctor: "Timey" what? "Timey wimey"?

Ten: I have no idea where he picks that stuff up.
