Brandon Seifert Discusses IDW’s Doctor Who

The Eleventh Doctor and Rory appear in the new Doctor Who series from IDWRecently, 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.

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!

    Aren’t IDW and Image two totally different comics companies?


    • Indeed they are, and now Mez will never work for them. Thanks for calling that one out, Drew.
