An oversize edition of the Doctor Who comic is due to land in the last week of 2013, to celebrate the programme's 50th anniversary. IDW Publishing and BBC Worldwide have announced that the special issue will be written by fan-favourite Paul Cornell, with features art by Jimmy Broxton.
The one-shot story will chronicle a strange force that sends the TARDIS into our own universe. In his travels, the Doctor will meet one of his biggest fans, a 10-year-old girl who will make him face his status as a fictional character.
The comic will also feature the Doctor coming face-to-face with the actor who portrays him, Matt Smith. IDW and the BBC have already launched a new series from writer Andy Diggle to mark the occasion.
