In The Forgotten, the Doctor and Martha find themseleves stranded in a strange Museum that’s dedicated to the Time Lord – and with no TARDIS in sight, the pair must make sense of their surroundings, hindered by one small fact – the Doctor has lost his memories of every one of his previous incarnations! With items relevant to each Doctor in their possession, The Doctor must try to use them to regain his memories before it’s too late, starting with his earliest incarnation’s memories, involving Susan, Barbara and Ian. This all-new series is written by Tony Lee and features artist Pia Guerra in her first monthly comic since Y The Last Man.
