Brandon Seifert Discusses IDW’s Doctor Who
Recently, IGN caught up with Doctor Who writer Brandon Seifert (who writes not for the television series but for the IDW comics range of Doctor Who) about his upcoming work with the company and his new Time Lord adventure.
Seifert’s work can be enjoyed through either his Witch Doctor series or his Hellraiser: The Road Below comics but his most exciting piece that’s due to come out is his new Doctor Who two parter starring the Eleventh Doctor and Rory! Whilst not giving too much away, he spoke about the plot for his latest story:
“It’s a time-travel “road-trip” buddy comedy between the Doctor and Rory! I love Rory, and I love his dynamic with the Doctor… This is Rory and the Doctor, lost in a malfunctioning TARDIS trying to get back to where they left Amy, squabbling throughout time and space!”
Covering the whole of time and space (or as much as Seifert could fit into a two part comic) this adventure will be an unforgettable tale with more than a few comedy bits to enjoy! But does the task of writing a tale for a comic rather than television make things easier or harder for Brandon:
“The Doctor has a time machine that’s also a spaceship, he can go anywhere in the whole life-span of the universe… as long as there’s enough money for the costumes, sets and special effects. But in comics, that’s not a problem. Famously, comics are said to have an unlimited budget — it just comes down to the creators’ imaginations and the amount of time the artist has.”
So with this new adventure, expect plenty of scope and imagination to shine through! To find out who is Seifert’s favourite Doctor and companion plus for more information about his other comic book tales, you can check out the full interview at IGN.
