Since landing the Doctor Who comics license earlier this year, Titan Comics have been anything but idle. They’ve already launched ongoing comics series focusing on the Tenth and Eleventh Doctors (David Tennant and Matt Smith, respectively), and just last week they launched a Twelfth Doctor series as well. Well, their commitment to spinning new tales of Doctors both old and new continues with the news that an upcoming mini-series will focus on a previously untold adventure of the Ninth Doctor (Christopher Eccleston) and fan-favorite companion Rose Tyler (Billie Piper).
Bleeding Cool’s Hannah Means-Shannon live-blogged the Diamond Retailer Appreciation Breakfast at New York Comic Con earlier this month, and among the various announcements were the first details about Titan’s Ninth Doctor mini-series. Scheduled to hit shelves in March 2015, the miniseries will be timed to celebrate the tenth anniversary of Doctor Who’s modern revamp, which premiered on March 17, 2006 with the episode “Rose.” According to ScienceFiction.com, the series will be set somewhere sometime around the events of the episode “Boomtown” and will also feature another popular character from the Russell T Davies era: Captain Jack Harkness (played on the show by John Barrowman).
