Ready your jelly babies and grab your favorite gigantic scarf, Whovians! Titan Comics is granting the Fourth Doctor, famously played by Tom Baker, and fan-favorite companion Sarah Jane, made famous by the late, great Elizabeth Sladen, a five-issue miniseries that drops in March of 2016. Titan, who began publishing Who comics in 2014 with the Tenth and Eleventh Doctor, will add the Fourth Doctor to a line that includes Doctors Eight, Nine and Twelve.

From Titan:

The Fourth Doctor And Sarah Jane Smith Return For An All-New Adventure!

Titan Comics and BBC Worldwide are pleased to announce a brand-new mini series starring the Fourth Doctor and Sarah Jane Smith, as played by Tom Baker and the late Elisabeth Sladen.

This series expands Titan Comics’ hugely popular and critically acclaimed Doctor Who comics line, which already includes adventures from the Eighth, Ninth, Tenth, Eleventh and Twelfth Doctors.

Entitled ‘Gaze Of The Medusa’, the five-part series will hit stores in March 2016 and will be penned by Gordon Rennie (Missionary Man, Judge Dredd) and Emma Beeby (Witch Hunter, Judge Dredd) with art by Brian Williamson (The Twelfth Doctor, Spider-Man, X-Men).

The all-new adventure is set in Victorian England, where a mysterious woman commands a hidden army in a house of the blind. Scryclops stalk the streets…and something alien and terrible screams from prehistory – with a hunger that cannot be satisfied!

Issue #1 will come with six covers to collect: a painted cover by fan-favorite artist Alice X. Zhang; a photo variant; art covers by artists Brian Williamson, Jay Gunn and Matt Baxter; and a blank sketch variant.

Doctor Who: The Fourth Doctor #1 debuts in comic stores and on digital devices from March 2016.

  1. Nice! I’m surprised it’s taken this long, considering the comics are produced for the US market and the Fourth Doctor had the most pop-culture impact there thanks to his presence on PBS. I’ve lost count of the times I’ve read accounts of Americans getting into modern Who where they hadn’t previously been aware of the concept of regeneration and had thought Tom Baker was the only Doctor in the original run.

    I’d actually quite like to see a series based on The Sarah Jane Adventures; personally, I’m much more interested in the notion of contemporary stories rather than those set during the history of a series/character. I’ve enjoyed comics like Dark Horse’s continuation of the Buffy universe and while Big Finish are now producing audio dramas incorporating the likes of UNIT and the Paternoster Gang, this obviously wouldn’t be possible for SJA while a Buffy-style route could work. If Russel T Davies could be involved in a similar way to Whedon with the Buffy books, giving it an additional level of legitimacy, all the better. I’d certainly be more excited about that than I am about the forthcoming solo K-9 movie…!
