The BBC and Titan Comics have announced that the Thirteenth Doctor will make her comic book debut this august and be brought to life by an all-female creative team.
Jodie Whitaker’s Doctor will start in her own ongoing series from BBC Worldwide and Titan Comics which will be written by critically-acclaimed author Jody Houser, who has previously worked on tie-in comics for Star Wars: Rogue One and Orphan Black as well as Spider-Man and Supergirl stories.
Providing the artwork will be fan-favourite artist Rachael Stott whose eye-catching work on the Twelfth Doctor’s ongoing series has us keen to see what she’ll bring to Whittaker’s incarnation of the Doctor.
As you can see, she’s already hard at work.
‘Do you need reference pics?’

And here’s one of Stott’s early sketches.
Join the pair will be colourist Enrica Angolini who previously worked on the Warhammer 40,000 series.
Titan’s new series will debut this autumn, presumably around the same time as the main series, and will almost certainly also feature new cast members Bradley Walsh, Mandip Gill and Tosin Cole’s characters Graham, Yasmin and Ryan.
Doctor Who will return this Autumn on BBC One.
