The Doctor Who universe is set to get a big arrival this year via Jodie Whittaker as the first ever (in-canon) Doctor. Her arrival has been met with both joy, anticipation, and sadly, some controversy. But, no matter what you feel, she is coming, and it’s going to be good. However, news has now broken that you won’t just have to watch the TV show to experience her, for her debut in comics is coming not long after. “Oh, brilliant!”
This came straight from Titan Comics, who is the publisher of the official Doctor Who comic line. Yes, we said line, if you’re not aware, the comics have been going on since “nu-Who” or the 9th Doctor on, and they’ve helped expand the universe and stories of many the Doctors both current and previous. In one case, they’ve even told the untold (and unaired) story of one of the Doctor’s regenerations.
Now, as for Jodie Whittaker’s Doctor, this is going to be something very interesting indeed. For usually a Doctor has to get their legs before diving into the comics. But this launch may coincide with her premiere episode, which means that the writers may not know how Jodie is on screen. Of course, they could be shown the episodes beforehand so that they know how her personality as The Doctor is, we’re kind of hoping for that. And obviously, they’ll to be given some heads up so that they don’t conflict with what the season itself has to offer.
Either way though, it’s going to be a very exciting time of Doctor Who, as the stories are going to be new and fresh all over again, and who knows who Jodie Whittaker’s Doctor will meet in her journies?
We certain can’t wait to find out when the series returns this year on BBC and BBC America.
