You may have seen her on the Web or via advertisements for Doctor Who audiobooks. She’s Doom, the Universe’s greatest assassin, who is traveling through all of time and space from the 51st century in pursuit of the Doctor (the 13th Doctor) to save her from the ever-approaching Death. The BBC, with Doctor Who Magazine, Titan Comics, Penguin Random House, East Side Games, Big Finish, and BBC Audio, is telling a section of Doom’s story, each focusing on one of the 24 hours Doom has left on the clock. It’s all part of this year’s celebration of the 60th anniversary of Doctor Who.
Doom is portrayed by stand-up comedian, comedy sketch artist, and actor Sooz Kempner. Want to get in on the fun? Take a look at a preview of Titan Comics’ contribution to the 24-hour clock, Doom’s Day, Issue #1, written by Jody Houser, with artwork by Roberta Ingranata, and colors by Warina K. Sahadewa:
This lonely assassin from the 51st Century is hunting for her survival, and there’s only one person who can save her: the Doctor. Using her vortex manipulator, she’ll do anything to find the tempestuous time traveler, including cavorting with the maleficent Missy. Every hour a new adventure, every hour closer to death…
