Doctor Who comic says goodbye to the Tenth :|

IDW Publishing’s Dr Who title will bid farewell to David Tennant’s Tenth Doctor, reports MTV News. The character has continued to star in the series following his death in the New Year’s Day television special.

‘Final Sacrifice’ will be the final outing for Tennant’s Doctor – a four-issue arc that will not tie directly into ‘The End of Time’.

“We were told from the very beginning that ‘The Waters Of Mars’ would lead straight into the regeneration ending,” said series writer Tony Lee. “So we set up the whole season arc to end directly before ‘The Waters Of Mars’, which worked really well as the mindset The Doctor is in during the start of that episode matches the mindset he has at the end of the series of comics. We decided that we needed to have a solid end, something that would weaken The Doctor, that would push him towards the final song. And then, of course, we saw that between ‘The Waters Of Mars’ and ‘The End Of Time’, The Doctor went off and had a load of adventures, which meant that this wasn’t right before the regeneration. But, we had tied it so nicely into ‘Waters Of Mars’, we decided to keep it that way.

“So although it’s the final Tenth Doctor comic, it’s not going to be a ‘regeneration prequel’. But we do perform some amazing timey-wimey endings and pretty much do a similar farewell end scene.”

A series starring Matt Smith’s Eleventh Doctor is planned for 2011. ‘Final Sacrifice’ will begin in July with Doctor Who #13.
