The Stockbridge Child

Just spotted this on Outpost Gallifrey, about DWM 403, out this week:

"The Doctor takes Majenta to one of his favourite places in the universe in Part One of a brand new comic strip, The Stockbridge Child by Dan McDaid with art by Mike Collins."

Two things leapt out at me:

1.)  Yay, another Stockbridge story!  (And I hadn't realized until I just read that wiki entry that Izzy was from Stockbridge!  There are huge gaps in my knowledge of the Eighth Doctor stories .... )

2.) So, this makes Majenta the first original comic strip companion since the series restarted is 2005, doesn't it?  Or am I forgetting someone?


Izzy goes audio!

Wasn't expecting this...

From DWM 403, Big Finish's main Doctor Who release in July is The Company of Friends, featuring the Eighth Doctor. It's a collection of four one-episode stories... and one of them is Izzy's Story, written by Alan Barnes, Izzy's creator, with Jemima Rooper (from "Hex" and "Lost in Austen") as Izzy. And it's set in Stockbridge, to boot.

(Oh, and for the other book fans, Benny and Fitz both get a story each: Benny's Story is by Lance Parkin, with Lisa Bowerman as Benny; Fitz's Story is by Stephen Cole, with Matt di Angelo (Deano from "Eastenders") as Fitz. The final story is Mary's Story, with Mary Shelley, the author of "Frankenstein", teaming up with the Doctor. It's written by Jonathan Morris, with Julia Cox as Mary.)


Question for DWM readers

About how long does it normally take you to get hold of the latest DWM?

Master list of comics by Doctor

And this is the second of the two master lists, listing every comic under DWM's aegis by Doctor.

Again, thanks to the Tardis Wiki and the Doctor Who Reference Guide.

And again...Collapse )


Master list of comics by issue number

Right then. This is the first of two master lists. This one lists every Doctor Who comic published under DWM's aegis by the issues they were published in.

With thanks to the Tardis Wiki and the Doctor Who Reference Guide, where I compiled the information from.

Here goes...Collapse )

Resources post

Okay. So let's get this started with a quick rundown of resources for the DWM comic.

Wikipedia article on DWM and the graphic novels.

Doctor Who Magazine on TV Tropes, with most of the comic's tropes written by me.

Rob McCow's guide to the DWM strips - The closest thing we have at the moment to an overview of the comics, currently up to the Seventh Doctor's era.

Comic reviews on the Doctor Who Ratings Guide

And... that's pretty much all we've got. The comic companions have write-ups on Wikipedia and the Tardis Wiki, and most of the strips have summaries on the Doctor Who Reference Guide.

As for fic... er, /I've/ written most DWM fic I know of on the intertubes, and IMO, they're pretty much all exposition and pop psychology. I wouldn't recommend them, but they're out there if you know where to look.
