Doctor Who fans are all familiar with The Master.  More enemy of the Doctor than friend, for 50 years–since January 1971–the original Whovian frenemy has menaced the show’s hero at every turn.  A Timelord in his own right, he regenerates like the Doctor, which has resulted in nine actors playing the character in 107 series episodes.  In the era of the 12th Doctor played by Peter Capaldi, the role was played by the brilliant Michelle Gomez, who would go on to create another show-stopping villain in The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.  In the incarnation as Missy, she became the very best feature of the 12th Doctor’s story lines.  This spring a new limited series from Titan Comics, Doctor Who: Missy, celebrates the 50th year of this notorious villain.

Time Lord Victorious is a Doctor Who event, a story which crosses over and connects all forms of Doctor Who publishing media, from books, to audio dramas, even an escape room, and comics.  The implications for various incarnations of the Doctor and his companions are great–take a look at the scope of the event here.  In The Knight, the Fool, and the Dead, author Steve Cole takes the 10th Doctor back to the Dark Times.  In the novel All Flesh is Grass, from author Una McCormack, the 10th Doctor must confront the 9th and 8th Doctors.  The original actor behind the 8th Doctor performs on two audiobooks, He Kills Me, He Kills Me Not and The Enemy of My Enemy, both from Big Finish Productions.  Check out our preview pages, cover art, and a trailer below for the comic book tie-in, a 100-page graphic novel from Titan Comics featuring the 10th Doctor.

As Tom Hardy is getting favored by the oddsmakers to be tapped as the next James Bond, the other big British genre franchise is not waning in the eyes of its fans.  This past week around 50,000 fans of the Doctor Who series voted for their favorite Doctor and David Tennant’s 10th Doctor barely edged out Jodie Whittaker’s 13th Doctor by only 95 votes for the top spot, with more than 10,000 votes cast for each (Peter Capaldi’s 12th Doctor edged out Matt Smith’s 11th Doctor for the third place, followed by Tom Baker’s fourth Doctor–proving every era has its loyal fans).  This is good timing, as Titan Comics just provided borg with a preview of a new Doctor Who series and story arc featuring the 10th and 13th Doctors… and the return of Rose Tyler!  Check out our preview pages and look at the cover art below.
