    Does this one say what the next DWM Panini Graphic Novel will be?

      It’ll be a collection of stories featuring the first 5 Doctors.

      It’s called “Land of the Blind”

      Oh you got a source on that? That might be great, we can finally have those missing Fourth Doctor ones (and others, though I’m not too sure what other Doctors were done by DWM, of the first three anyway).

      Really? I was anticipating Ground Zero next, with the last Seventh Doctor strip and the arcs leading up to it, and maybe the yearbook story left out of the Evening’s Empire collection, but I was also anticipating Land of the Blind at some point. I’m guessing that would include Victims, The Lunar Strangers, Food for Thought, Change of Mind, Target Practice and Doctor Who and the Fangs of Time?

    Great cover and concept, sadly the released version had different cover on Amazon

      As a matter of interest, which cover does your copy have? I much prefer the one featured here to the one showing on Amazon. There are a couple of these collections that appear to have different covers e.g. Evening’s Empire and The Highgate Horror. It makes it v. tricky ordering.

    It’s up to you to decide what is canon eg. The 7th doctor says he’s 953 but 9 is 900 or inferno saying digging to the centre of the earth would destroy the planet or runaway bride having a hole straight to the centre which caused no problems.

      I do think this fits in with a new timeline where it retcons the eighth doctor books canon (it got a little confusing at times), and big Finish created a new one starting with an earthly child (which is the first time the doctor meets Susan after the five doctors) so Legacy of the Daleks can’t fit in there, The Two Masters then backs this up, with The Master being decayed in a different body from the Roger delagado Master, this comics backs it up as well with the master finally rengerating in Beevers / Pratt incarnation

    Ah! I was anticipating The Pestilent Heart as the title story, should have guessed they’d go for the Delgado Master one. So, guessing this’ll reprint everything up to then, carrying on from where The Highgate Horror ended?

    Canon or not canon if you love 70s Doctor Who you will love this graphic novel

    The DWM strip was almost canon. The original ending to the final 8th Doctor strip shows the regeneration into the 9th Doctor.

    That would have scuppered the Day of the Doctor…!

    BBC never confirm what is canon and what is not as they don’t want to box themselves in. They control certain things via their licences (e.g. not allowed to kill off the Daleks), but besides that the whole canon question is usually left to fans to argue over.

      If it works with the series I like to think it’s canon. At least we that a few Big Finish audios that are canon

      Everything is simultaneously canon and non-canon. 🙂

      The BBC can never confirm its canon because their charter forbids them from paywalling content (bet the Star Trek fans wish they had that these days). Not having a canon policy gets them through the loophole.

      technically anything not on TV the BBC cannot call canon because you pay your license fee for the adventures of Doctor Who and therefore anything not covered by that license fee cannot be canon if that makes sense. that’s the legal definition and really it’s up to you what is canon

    I know this is a dangerous question but are the DWM comics canon to the main series? This story along with others deserve to be canon.

      If you like it it’s canon. There are so many conflicting media now, TV, audio, novels, graphic stories and short stories that canon is for me no longer an issue.

      If you think it’s canon then it is.

      I believe that all DWM strips are canon, save for maybe a few of the earlier, more crazy ones. The 8th Doctor steps deserve to exist just as much as the audios, and their strips alongside New Who have been increasingly good, with standouts including Doorway to Hell and Hunters of the Burning Stone to name but a few. In the same way I also consider the Titan Strips canon – basically as much as can fit is canon to me!

      Canon is whatever you want it to be. No one can dictate this. It’s also down to cost. There would be a lot of people in dire straits if they bought everything! Don’t worry about canon and just enjoy.
