Come with me in a journey through time and spoilers.
The Doctor is the last of an ancient race called the time lords. He travels through time and space in his blue police box called the TARDIS(time and relative dimension in space)which is bigger on the inside. He rights wrongs, saves worlds, and protects the innocent. He rarely travels alone. His friends have always been the best of him. As Craig Ferguson once sang, Doctor Who is all about the triumph of intellect and romance over brute force and cynicism.
The comic book iteration of everyones favorite time traveling hero means to fill us in on his adventures between episodes of the almost 50 years long British television phenomenon.
The story so far…
An inter dimensional intelligence has hijacked the TARDIS and caused the inner dimension to expand to the size of a galaxy trapping creatures and people from many different points of time and space. With the help of his trusty companion Clara, the impossible girl, and the crew of an American World War II bomber The Doctor forms a cunning plan to thwart the villain and save the universe.
The reason this issue is especially important is because the villain’s origins are directly tied into The Doctor’s and the opening pages give us insight into the end of the time war and the name he took when his dark choices were made to doom his race for the fate of all creation. Many secrets of Gallifrey are revealed and we must be brave enough the hear them.
If you are a fan of the mad man with a box then you need to catch up with the comic series and we’ll see you in November when the fiftieth anniversary episode premiers on the BBC.
