Is There a Doctor in the House?

Well this should make Matthew happy.  This two page splash is from issue #6 of IDW’s Doctor Who: The Forgotten.  WOOT!  All ten Doctors together! The art is by Kelly Yates, with the story by Tony Lee.  I know there’s going to be a delayed reaction from Major Spoilers #1 Doctor Who fan, but I’m just as tickled pink over this spread.  Guess what’s my new wallpaper today?  Go on, guess. via Tony Lee
