RTD: BBC Books Turned Down Graphic Novel

Last week we brought you news of Russell T Davies’ non-involvement with the Doctor Who 50th anniversary. However, it seems that this isn’t down to the former showrunner…

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?!
