Chatting to the Telegraph as part of the promotion for his new show Wizards vs Aliens, Russell revealed that he had approached BBC Books about a Doctor Who graphic novel – only to be turned down!
Clearly, Russell isn’t happy about it. And who can blame him?
“Don’t ask me about the 50th anniversary [in November 2013], because it’s nothing to do with me,” he says. “I’m just a happy viewer now. This’ll teach me though – I did ask BBC Books if they fancied a graphic novel, and they went, ‘No’. I sat here thinking, I could write a graphic novel, I could even draw the graphic novel, that’d be brilliant… No. There we are then, I tried.”
It’s pretty disappointing, we think you’ll agree – but more to the point, what about the content of the aforementioned graphic novel?
Could it possibly have been – gasp – the Time War?!
