Though it's not the exact anniversary, it was on Easter Saturday 2005 that the relaunch of Doctor Who hit the UK's TV screens. It was a gamble, and one that the BBC put a lot of money into, but it paid off handsomely, re-introducing the eccentric alien scientist/adventurer who travelled through all of time and space in a battered old Police Box....

Ten years, and four Doctor's, later (Well five if you count John Hurt's War Doctor) the series is still going strong.

Since he only stayed for one season, Christopher Eccleston's blunt yet traumatised "northern" Ninth Doctor, still recovering from what he had seen and done in his previous incarmation to end the Time War that had raged between the Time Lords and the Daleks get's a little overlooked at times, but there's pretty much no doubt that without the central performances of him and Billie Piper as Rose Tyler, the show would not have taken off like it did.

IDW Titan Publishing are finally utting out a comic book for 9 (as they are for Doctor's 10, 11 and 12) and, as I was at the London Super Comic Convention this year (and I must post a couple of acquisitions from that) I was able to pick up an advance copy of #1 of the series; part 1 of "Weapons of Past Destruction"

Four pages under the cut )

In honour of DiD week, I present to you the comic strip in Issue 272 of Doctor Who Magazine which, in 1998, was published around the thirty-fifth anniversary of the show, and well before it looked like anyone was going to be bringing it back. And it involves eight incarnations of the Doctor tied to... well, you'll see.

Just over 2.5 scans from an eight-page story, which unless my maths fails me, I think is okay for the page limit requirements (mods, please don't hesitate to correct me otherwise). I've also tried to trim down what were some fairly large file sizes into something a bit more manageable, but apologies in advance to any dial-up users.

You're not wrong there, Eighth Doctor... )

Okay this is from one of the best Doctor Who comics of all time the Forgotten which was pretty much the tenth Doctor having flashbacks to his previous incarnations while fighting off a brain bug, had one great little moment, at the end of the book he gets the chance in a way to see one companion,which one did he choose?
