Doctor Who: Fugitive Doctor Series Announced
The Fugitive Doctor will finally get the spotlight in a new Doctor Who series. Jo Martin's mysterious incarnation of the Time Lord makes her comic book debut on Free Comic Book Day in Titan Comics' FCBD 2022 Doctor Who #1. The familiar Doctor Who Comic creative team of writer Jody Houser and artist Roberta Ingranata tell a tale that offers a glimpse at the Fugitive Doctor's earlier years. Titan Comics has since confirmed that FCBD Doctor Who #1 will lead into the next Doctor Who Comic miniseries arc. The story is titled Doctor Who: Origins, telling a new adventure set during the Doctor's time working for the Division.
The Fugitive Doctor made her surprise debut in the Doctor Who episode "Fugitive of the Judoon." The sudden appearance of a previously unmentioned regeneration upset everything fans thought they knew about the Doctor. The Fugitive Doctor's debut set up the even bigger reveal in "The Timeless Children," rewriting the Doctor's origin story massively.
Titan Comics plans to keep Doctor Who fans entertained between Jodie Whittaker's final TV specials. In addition to Doctor Who Origin, they're also publishing a series of Doctor Who Special one-shots featuring different incarnations of the Doctor. The next Doctor Who television special airs this spring. Whittaker says farewell as the Thirteenth Doctor as part of the BBC's centennial celebration this fall. FCBD 2022 Doctor Who #1 releases on Free Comic Book Day, May 7th, and Doctor Who Origin #1 will follow on May 18th.
