John Hurt’s War Doctor Joins Titan’s Summer Event

A couple of days ago, the covers to Titan Comics’ upcoming summer event, starring the Tenth, Eleventh, and Twelfth Doctors, were unveiled. And from the look of newly-released photo variants, the War Doctor is set to join them!

The five-issue weekly series will be the first team-up for the incarnations played by David Tennant, Matt Smith, and Peter Capaldi, and follows up the Year One conclusion of each Doctor’s respective series, while Year Two continues for each after this weekly event finishes.

Each Doctor, including John Hurt, will get their own photo covers, while Tennant, Smith, and Capaldi will share the limelight for #5.

The series is written by Paul Cornell (who previously worked under IDW, as well as contributing three episodes on screen), drawn by Welsh artist, Neil Edwards (HercScarlet Spider), and starts on Wednesday 12th August 2015.

As to whether the War Doctor will be actually involved in the tale or not… Well, we’ll just have to find out! Perhaps his first issue will be a prologue, with the other Doctors having to deal with the fallout?
