Notes Edit

100 comic preview

Illustrated preview by Martin Geraghty from DWM 387.

  • The basic conceit of the story is not dissimilar to TV: Death of the Doctor.
  • Although the Doctor sees Charley Pollard in the company of his future self in this story, he fails to recognise her upon meeting her formally in AUDIO: The Condemned, which occurs later in his personal timeline.
  • A comic preview by Martin Geraghty for this story was published in DWM #387.
  • The Doctor and Evelyn make self-aware allusions and almost fourth-wall breaks frequently throughout the duration. This is most obvious in a sequence where the Doctor is talking about there potentially being an 'audience' for his adventures.
