The Twist was the tenth story of the Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor comic series, published in 2016. It was the first story to be set following the ninth series, with the Doctor travelling alone. It introduced Hattie Munroe, a new original companion for the Doctor.

Summary Edit

In the wake of Clara's exit, the Doctor is flying solo — and finding just as much trouble, danger, and cosmic wonder as when Ms Oswald was around!

Notes Edit

  • As the first to be set after Series 9, this is the first story of the series to not feature Clara Oswald. The character introduction included on the inside front cover implies that this story takes place after losing Clara in TV: Hell Bent, and therefore predates TV: The Husbands of River Song.
  • Coincidentally, this story was published the day prior to the Doctor Who Magazine story The Stockbridge Showdown, which was also their first comic story to feature a post-Series 9 solo Twelfth Doctor.
  • Despite not being featured, Clara's image is still seen in one of the variant covers for the issue, and the character is still featured in the humour back-up strip.
  • Hattie is the first of a succession of short-term companions the Twelfth Doctor will travel with until the title introduces Bill Potts midway into the Year Three strand.
