Doctor Who: The Forgotten

This is what I call a featured article. Comic Book Resources have drowned the opposition once again (Doctor Who Magazine, how can you keep missing out on featuring these guys?) with a superb piece on the IDW Doctor Who comic.

Jam packed full of images and cover art from the latest miniseries Doctor Who: The Forgotten, by Tony Lee and Pia Guerra, the article speaks at length to Lee, and reveals a few details about the new adventure.

The Forgotten Issue 2For instance, unlike the original run, this new miniseries features not only the Tenth Doctor and Martha, but also…

I think we can give more ‘forgotten tales’ in these short flashbacks. We have the First Doctor, Ian, Barbara and Susan meeting Egyptians; we have the Second, Jamie and Zoe meeting space lizards; the Third, Jo and The Brigadier (and pretty much most of the UNIT regulars) defeating aliens on Dartmoor; the Fourth and Romana (two) in millennium Paris; the Fifth, Tegan and Turlough facing a more recent addition in a Village cricket match; the Sixth and Peri in a courtroom; the Seventh and Ace in an alien war torn city; the Eighth alone in a Count of Monte Cristo setting; and the Ninth and Rose in the trenches of World War I. And every single one of them has been an utter joy to write

Artist Pia Guerra has done a superb job, interpreting the individual Doctors to suitable effect, and got the gig thanks to Tony Lee suggesting she contact IDW with exactly that in mind.
