John Hurt Gets A Reference In New Doctor Who Comic…

o-DOCTOR-WHO-facebook It has been Bleeding Cool’s assertion for quite some time that John Hurt is playing the ninth incarnation of the Time Lord mostly known as The Doctor in the show Doctor Who… which pushes the other incarnations up one, Christopher Eccleston is now ten, David Tennant is eleven, Matt Smith is twelve and Peter Capaldi is thirteen… the final incarnation of The Doctor. Which gives showrunner Steven Moffat the chance to write the story of The Last Doctor, and all that that entails. Possibly before relaunching the character as female.

Anyway. We’re calling it the “Hurt Insert”. Feel free to join us. Or not.

And in the new Doctor Who comic from IDW, issue #12, written by Andy Diggle, and approved by all sorts of BBC people. Showing the last day of the Time War on Gallifrey. And it’s very destruction…

Rejected that name? The renegade?

HURT: “What I did, I did without choice… in the name of peace and sanity”

SMITH: “But not in the name of The Doctor”

Signed off by the BBC, folks. Probably still on the shelves in comic shops near you if you fancy checking it out…
