IDW comic writer Tony Lee has spoken to MTV.com about the final story arc featuring the Tenth Doctor.
Taking place before The Waters of Mars, Lee’s Final Sacrifice kicks off with issue #13 of IDW’s popular Doctor Who comics, bringing an end to both Tennantâ€™s time as The Doctor and the current series.
â€œWe saw that between “The Waters Of Mars” and “The End Of Time,” The Doctor went off and had a load of adventures, which meant that this wasn’t right before the regeneration. But, we had tied it so nicely into “Waters Of Mars,” we decided to keep it that way.
â€œSo although it’s the final Tenth Doctor comic, it’s not going to be a “regeneration prequel.” But we do perform some amazing timey-wimey endings and pretty much do a similar “farewell” end scene.â€
While there’s still some uncertainty about the form IDW’s “Doctor Who” comics will take after this final adventure, it’s been confirmed that the Doctor will return in the likeness of Matt Smith in 2011. Meanwhile Doctor Who #13 hits the shelves in July.
Hot foot it to the interview to read about some of the best Tenth Doctor moments in the series and what Lee has in store for Matt Smithâ€™s Doctor.
