Comic book writer Tony Lee has revealed that the final ongoing Doctor Who story from IDW Publishing will be an epic one. And feature no less than twelve incarnations of the Doctor!
Cryptically titled Dead Man’s Hand, the four-part adventure will be a sequel to the very first story Lee scribed over six years ago, as well as a celebration of the Doctor’s fifty years in time and space.
Taking to Twitter earlier this week, Lee posted a stunning image of every Doctor from William Hartnell to Matt Smith, with the surprise inclusion of the ‘War Doctor’ John Hurt, who is tucked discretely behind David Tennant and Paul McGann. This ‘omni-gathering’ will apparently take place in Dead Man’s Hand, along with the words, “Hello, we’re the Doctor. From Gallifrey.”
As Lee explains:
“When the comic is out you’ll get the whole speech (removed for spoilers) and also more pages of each of these wonderful men. All of them.”
Until then, here’s hoping we can get our classic Doctor fix from this weekend’s anniversary special!
