Sky Jacks was a four-issue comic story in Doctor Who (2012). It was Clara Oswald's first appearance in an IDW Publishing comic book.

Summary Edit

The TARDIS has recently been on the fritz, but now it has gone completely out of control. And the Doctor is nowhere to be found! Meanwhile, white holes have been forming throughout time and space, sucking in everything around them. What does the Hypothetical Gentleman have to do with it all?

References Edit

  • Priyan says that the Doctor has rejected his name and stands against the Time Lords with the Moment.
  • The Doctor mentions Omega, Rassilon, the Valeyard, and the Master as enemies that could return as virtual memories locked inside the Matrix.
  • The TARDIS has a LEGO room.
  • The Sky Jack was sent to drop a third atomic bomb on Kyoto, Japan in World War II. This is historically inaccurate as, while Kyoto was at one point a target, it was removed from the list due to its cultural importance.

Notes Edit

  • The story features a number of similarities to Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS, including several views of the interior of the TARDIS (including a library), and a scene in which Clara unwisely presses a red button after ruminating over whether it's a bad idea to do so or not.
  • At the time of Clara's debut in the IDW series, she had yet to debut in the Doctor Who Magazine comic strip, marking the first time a current TV companion has appeared in an American comic before DWM has featured the character.
  • The references to the Doctor rejecting his name and The Moment appear to be prescient on the part of IDW as the comic would have been written and illustrated months before the revelation of the War Doctor in TV: The Name of the Doctor (which aired weeks after the comic was published), while The Moment would go on to play a role in the 50th anniversary special.
  • One of the cover variants depicts Oswin Oswald, who does not appear in the story.
