We told you that Si Spurrier was coming onto Doctor Who. And he is, for the second year of The Eleventh Doctor comics from Titan, with Rob Williams and Simon Fraser.
And note the chainsword mention – it does seem to suggest a certain Absolom Daak, Dalek Killer who recently saw mention in the TV show.
And, yes, after the Four Doctors event this summer, the welcome return of The War Doctor.

A fresh new start to an all-new Year Two, as the Tenth Doctor ongoing series takes to the stars! Looking for rest and relaxation, the Tenth Doctor and companion Gabriella Gonzalez take a trip to Earth Station Presley, a mining platform around an enormous gas giant – and home to one of the most spectacular sensory experiences in the universe!

But the Doctor and Gabby are walking straight into a war. Something has corrupted the song of the Shan’tee – a mysterious signal of unknown origin – and now the human colonists are trapped in a fight for their lives!
Can the Doctor, Gabby, and a synesthetic scientist uncover the truth and bring the war to an end without further bloodshed… or will the song consume them all?And… why does Gabby feel like the alien foes she’s been facing are starting to rhyme…? Is there something less random and more sinister at work…?
