Paul Cornell chats about “Doctor Who’ special, which ends an era of DWO at IDW

Doctor who Special2013


As we all know Matt Smith will regenerate on Christmas Day into the new Doctor, who is to be played by Peter Capaldi, but this is not the only change that will be taking place in the universe of Doctor Who.

As Matt Smith’s era as the Doctor closes out. The era of ‘Doctor Who’ at IDW Comics also comes to a close and closing it out will be celebrated writer Paul Cornell, who has come up with somewhat of a meta style story for IDW’s final ‘Doctor Who’ adventure.

In the new issue of SFX Cornell took time out of his busy schedule to talk a little about the story.

“I’ve has this idea in mind since the last days of Virgin Book’s Doctor Who New Adventures range,” revealed the writer.

“It’s my last Doctor Who story, really, the only idea I hadn’t used.”

In ‘The Girl Who Loved Doctor Who’ the Doctor lands in our everyday dimension, encounters a ten year – old fan of a certain 50 – year old BBC show and comes face to face with the real life actor who currently plays him.

“It’s not just that he meets Matt Smith, he also watches his episodes on DVD and goes to a convention,” reveals Cornell. “And there’s also some rather terrible peril in the background.”

This special and final issue of ‘Doctor Who’ comic will be released Christmas Week and the significance of that isn’t lost on Cornell.

It’s great to have that sense of being in a special place,” says Cornell who has reunited with his ‘Knight & Squire’ artist Jimmy Broxton for the book. “I love the fact that it comes out in the week of the regeneration.”

And so do we.
