Wednesday 7th January 2015 sees the release of Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor #6 by Robbie Morrison and Flash Gordon artist Daniel Indro, and features The Doctor and Gabby facing the terror of Weeping Angels in the trenches of the Western Front during World War One.
This issue comes with a special cover by Batman and Turf artist Tommy Lee Edwards (above) and some of the fantastic interior artwork by series artist Daniel Indro. Here’s a sneak peek – we’re already wondering just how many “Charley’s War” references Robbie has sneaked into the script, which the Titan Comics art department have clearly picked up on for one of the variant covers!
STONE HANDS STALK THROUGH THE CRATERS OF THE SOMME…
When Gabby and the Doctor arrive by accident in No Man’s Land in July, 1916, they’re met by Corporal Jamie Colqhoun – a soldier who knows from bitter experience that there are worse things than the Jerries out in the rat-strewn trenches.
Things that drift through the smoke of a thousand cannon shells, and move only when you look away. Shadows that flit over artillery-blasted field hospitals and throw their terrifying wings over the living. Statues that steal your life in an instant.
The Weeping Angels.
But in a conflict where the life of young men is cheap, and thousands die every day – are the Angels actually offering salvation?
Trapped in the midst of a flock of starving Angels, the Doctor faces his most challenging and terrifying moral dilemma yet!
