Earlier this month, we got our first look at the covers by Alice X. Zhang for the brand new ‘Doctor Who’ comics from BBC Worldwide and Titan Comics starring the Tenth and Eleventh Doctors famously portrayed by David Tennant and Matt Smith. Now we have actual story details for the first arcs of each series that find the Doctor in the middle of the Day of the Dead and the second Big Bang.
While details on ‘Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor’ are still being kept under wraps until Peter Capaldi appears in his first full episode as one of the most iconic figures in science fiction history, Titan Comics has recently shared the official synopsis for the first issue of ‘Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor’ and ‘Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor’, which are both scheduled to be released this July. You can check out what the Time Lord will be getting into this summer with the story descriptions below:
