Writer's Alex Paknadel commentary
"I was obviously thrilled and honoured to be invited to write this year's Free Comic Book Day Doctor Who offering from Titan. I can't wait for everyone to see what artist Mariano Laclaustra and I are cooking up with Titan editorial and the BBC. This is almost certainly the widest audience I'll ever reach, and that's an awesome responsibility as well as a pretty neat privilege.
Accordingly, I'll be fretting and worrying at this script probably more than any other in the run up to FCBD. I can tell you that it features all four of the modern era doctors - all of whom have their moment to shine. However, the big news here is that this FCBD special features the Titan Comics debut of Bill, the 12th Doctor's brand new companion.
Finally, you can expect to see tantalising clues as to the future direction of your favourite Doctor Who titles, so that's an awful lot of exclusive and season-critical content for the princely sum of zero pennies. I really hope everyone enjoys it."
