Every Doctor Who story: 001 - An Unearthly Child (1963)
“If you could touch the alien sand and hear the cry of strange birds and watch them wheel in another sky, would that satisfy you?”
“It all started as a mild curiosity in a junkyard…”
…Now it has become 49 years of an adventure.
Happy Birthday Doctor Who, 23rd November, 1963.
Next year, IDW are publishing a twelve issue mini-series as a fiftieth anniversary of Doctor Who project, each issue telling a story through the perspective of each of the character’s incarnations, with companions associated with that Doctor. The first issue sees the Doctor, Ian and Barbara, the second will no doubt see Jamie join the Doctor.
Written by Doctor Who/Star Trek writes David Tipton, Scott Tipton and drawn by Nikolai Dante’s Simon Fraser (with Francesco Francavilla covers), the question is what will fill the twelfth issue in December 2012… a new Doctor? All the Doctors all together properly as The Eleven Doctors - the first time that has been officially attempted in licence form?
Let’s find out… see you in a year.
Doctor: My dear, my dear, why don’t you come with us? Hmm?
Vicki: In that old box?
Doctor: We can travel anywhere and everywhere in that old box as you call it! Regardless of space and time.
Vicki: Then it is a time machine!
Doctor: And if you like adventure, my dear, I can promise you an abundance of it. Apart from that, well you’ll…you’ll be amongst friends.
