The Betrothal of Sontar was the tenth volume of the Panini Publishing series of Doctor Who Magazine comic collections, and the first to feature the Tenth Doctor. It included those Tenth Doctor DWM strips with the earliest release dates, and thus featured Rose Tyler, with significant guest-appearances by Jackie Tyler, Mickey Smith and the Brig. It notably contained The Lodger, which, as of February 2012, remains the only DWM comic story to be adapted into a televised story. It was the first chance readers had of seeing the original version of the comics since they were first published in DWM in 2006 and 2007.

Publisher's summary Edit


The Tenth Doctor and Rose Tyler steer the TARDIS into a whole new realm of adventure and excitement in these collected comics from the pages of Doctor Who Magazine!

This book features eight amazing stories: The Betrothal of Sontar, The Lodger, F.A.Q., The Futurists, Interstellar Overdrive, Opera of Doom!, The Green-Eyed Monster and The Warkeeper's Crown!

Fresh from his regeneration, the Tenth Doctor needs all his wits about him as he battles the war-loving Sontarans on a remote ice planet, while Rose finds herself facing her worst fears in front of her family — and live on TV!

Also: Mickey spends a maddening week with a Time Lord in his spare room, an ordinary boy crates an extraordinary world of deadly monsters, an intergalactic rock band seems doomed to die over and over again, and the Doctor catches up with his oldest friend, Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, on an alien world where war is eternal!

PLUS! A special 15-page commentary section where the writers, artists and editors reveal the stories behind the strips, including TV writer Gareth Roberts (The Shakespeare Code, The Unicorn and the Wasp)!
