New companion Alice Obiefune in the Doctor Who Titan Comics range

The Eleventh Doctor will be joined by "a grieving young woman" in a new series of comic book adventures from Titan Comics.

Alice Obiefune has just lost her mother when the Doctor explodes into her life - heralding the start of a stunning new chapter of adventures for Matt Smith's Doctor. But what does this grieving young woman have to do with the career of a 70s musician, an amnesiac alien, and a terrifying cosmic threat?

"a grieving young woman..."

In this exclusive sketch from series artist, Simon Fraser, we see Alice depicted as beautiful but stern young woman, complete with hooped earrings, sunglasses and chunky headphones.
