Doctor Who: The Thirteenth Doctor #1 is published today, the first adventure in comics form with the Thirteenth Doctor and her new friends. And it seems deliberately to reference adventures past, not overtly, but enough for the bigger Doctor Who fan to catch on…. here are a few which snagged on my own perception filters.
That’s straight from the Ninth Doctor, as played by Christopher Eccleston, as he transformed into the Tenth.
DOCTOR: Except it means I’m going to change, and I’m not going to see you again. Not like this. (POINTS TO EYES) Not with this daft old face.
And from the Tenth:
DOCTOR: New teeth, that’s weird.
We also get a look and an explanation of the time vortex manipulator. Which may conflict with the Doctor having the same conversation in Rosa. But hey ho.
But it’s this scene with the glowy portal that most triggered the past selves…
Remember when the Eleventh Doctor saw a similar looking time portal in the Portrait Gallery?
DOCTOR: No, no. This is different. I remember this. Almost remember. Oh, of course. This is where I come in.
Last time, not being able to quite remember was as a result of different versions of the Doctor meeting each other, and not being able to remember what comes now…
With a different daft old face…?
