A Fairytale for the Doctor and Amy

IDW, the comic book distributor behind the popular Doctor Who series such as The Forgotten, are to bring out a four part miniseries called A Fairytale Life.

Starring the Eleventh Doctor and Amy Pond, the story will see the Doctor taking his friend to Caligaris Epsilon Six, a planet that has a very special holiday park based on classic fairy tales. This starts after Amy requests that the Doctor take her somewhere that is “beyond imagining”.

However, all does not go to plan and a simple recreational holiday soon turns into a nightmare as an unknown enemy stalks the parks inhabitants. It seems that only the doctor and Amy can save the day…

Matt Sturges, an American writer, is responsible for the tale. His credits include several DC comics including Blue Beetle and Justice Society of America.

Sturges admits that he was sceptical of the Eleventh Doctor at first but soon grew to accept that Doctor number ten was gone:

“When they announced that the next Doctor was going to be some 26-year-old kid I thought, ‘Well, this is never going to work…Now I think he’s the best Doctor of them all!”

This is not the first time that the comic strip Doctor has journeyed into the land of stories and make believe. Back in the 1980’s the Sixth Doctor and Frobisher encountered several fictional characters in the epic Voyager story.

Here’s hoping that this Eleventh Doctor tale has the same qualities…

Doctor Who: A Fairytale Life will be released in April.


What happens when an eight year old kid watches the 1993 repeat run of Planet of the Daleks? He pretty much ends up here writing about the show that grabbed hold of him and never let go!
