The Doctor (Doctor Who)(09)
Real Name:
Search for 'The Doctor (Doctor Who)(09)' on Amazon

Due to his unusually brief stint as the "current" Doctor (he announced his departure from the series after only one episode was aired, and long before his first comic storyline was fully published), the Ninth Doctor was doomed to be the television Doctor with the shortest run in comics.

All told, he wasn't the current Doctor for even a full year in the pages of Doctor Who Magazineómaking a record-low 10 appearances.

However, his era will be notable for ushering in a new kind of Doctor Who comic book adaptation. Because his comics were directly overseen by the writing staff of the show, they were tightly integrated with the developments on screen, and quite probably have the "truest" characterizations the franchise has yet seen. Indeed, Russell T. Davies, the series' showrunner, has gone on record saying that he wanted the comics to be viewed as episodes that never made it to air. For this reason, there's no monkeying around with "comics-only" companions or other things that would take great feats of continuity-bending to comprehend. His run is entirely about the further adventures of "the Doctor and Rose", period.

He also has the distinction of being the first Doctor to have his entire run, small though it is, originally printed in full color.
