I am Writing for the 13th Doctor

I am seriously over the moon to confirm that I will be writing for Jodie Whittaker’s 13th Doctor. In an upcoming 62-page comic special we will see the newly regenerated 13th Doctor looking back at her previous lives for inspiration to take with her on her new journey and a peek forward, too.

Published by Titan on October 9th 2018, Doctor Who: The Thirteenth Doctor – Volume #0 The Many Lives of Doctor Who will have two gorgeous variant covers – one by Claudia Ianicello and one by Will Brooks.

Writing for every incarnation of theDoctor – even the one he’d rather forget: the War Doctor – and each accompanied by his many friends. From Ian and Barbara (London 1965!)  through Sarah Jane Smith and Romana right up to Bill, the comic will serve as a prelude to the new TV series and also as a jumping on point for those who know nothing about Doctor Who!

One of the most exciting aspects of this projects is the fact I get to work with so many different artists – each one providing the artwork on a different Doctor – including those I have long wanted to work with but never have.

The line up includes Gioriga Sposito, Mariano Laclaustra, Arianna Florean, Iolanda Zanfardino, Neil Edwards and two of my 12th Doctor collaborators, Brian Williamson and Pasquale Qualano. Finally, I am seriously delighted that I get to work – at last – with Rachael Stott. Rachael is the official artist on Titan’s 13th Doctor ongoing series (to be written by Jody Houser) coming this autumn.

All the artists have produced seriously magnificent work and I can’t wait for you to see their artwork. Every frame is a masterpiece.

The GN won’t be out in time for San Diego Comic Con, but I will be signing my 12th Doctor collections at the Titan stand.

Although I probably won’t be in costume this year… 😉

 

Covers for Part 3 of the 7th Doctor Mini-Series

The covers for the 3rd part of the 7th Doctor Mini-Series were recently revealed in the May Previews. And aren’t they gorgeous?

The first is an artwork cover from Chris Jones and the second is a photographic one from Will Brooks.

The 7th Doctor mini-series is being published by Titan and the first double issue will be hitting the shelves on 6th June. The main strip – “Operation Volcano” – is being written by Andrew Cartmel and Ben Aaronovitch with art by Chris Jones.

I am providing the back-up strip – “A Hill of Beans” – with art by the awesome Jessica Martin who played Mags the werewolf in the 7th Doctor story The Greatest Show in the Galaxy to which this strip is a sequel, and reunites Mags with the 7th Doctor and Ace.

You can pre-order the digital version of issue one on Amazon and you can pre-order all the printed issues with the different variants covers at  Forbidden Planet.

Not treading water no more (first posted 10.03.10)

It has been some months since I wrote that I was “treading water” on the writing front. For all the difference between then and now, it could have been aeons.
So what’s been happening? Well, things have been moving pretty fast. I have made many friends in the industry over the last six months and cemented other relationships that were already blossoming (should you cement something that is blossoming? Sounds wrong, but there you go…) Continue reading

The Blog Begins (first posted 28.07.09)

I have been toying with the idea of blogging for a while now and didn’t know if anyone would be that bothered whether I did or didn’t. So this is an experiment. I want to write about, well, writing. There are loads of good blogs out there by far more prolific scribes than I, which partly explains the aforementioned hesitation. However, I thought “what the hell”! Continue reading
