The three-part series debuts in July
Who says 13 is unlucky? This fall, Jodie Whittaker will properly premiere as the star of the long-running time-travel show Doctor Who, playing the so-called Thirteenth Doctor. And today EW can exclusively reveal that Titan Comics and BBC Studios are collaborating on a three-part comic titled The Road to the Thirteenth Doctor, which will debut in July and lead into Titan’s all-new ongoing comic series The Thirteenth Doctor, also launching in the fall.
The Road to the Thirteenth Doctor will chronicle new adventures starring the Tenth, Eleventh, and Twelfth Doctors (who were played on TV by David Tennant, Matt Smith, and Peter Capaldi), written by James Peaty (Supergirl) and featuring covers by Robert Hack (Sabrina, Archie). In the course of the series, the Tenth Doctor encounters lost, ghostly spaceships, the Eleventh Doctor and Alice visit a robot-infested 19th-century San Francisco, and the Twelfth Doctor finds London’s Piccadilly Circus transformed into a wasteland of emptiness and pterodactyls.
Each issue will also contain a serialized short story from the creative team behind the new Thirteenth Doctor comic series (which will be written by Jody Houser, with art by Rachael Stott and Enrica Angiolini).
Finally, Titan announced that its annual Doctor Who Comics Day will take place this year on Saturday, Nov. 24.
