The Doctor is going back to the Wild West in a brand new four part IDW Comics serial by returning writer Tony Lee!

At the IDW panel at MCM London Expo, editor Dirk Wood announced Tony Lee’s return to the Whofold this September for a four part story called Dead Man’s Hand that runs from issue #13, through the 50th anniversary period.

Apparently the tale features the Doctor and Clara visiting Deadwood in 1882, and has guest stars Oscar Wilde, Calamity Jane and Thomas Edison in an adventure that pits them against undead mask-wearing gunfighters, including Wild Bill Hickok, zombies that can kill with a pointed finger, and (of course) an alien invasion.

Art duties will be filled by Mike Collins, best known for his work on the Doctor Who Magazine strips.

Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
