Dead Man's Hand was a four-issue comic story in Doctor Who (2012). It was the first Doctor Who comic to feature the War Doctor. It was the last multi-chapter story published by IDW under its licence from the BBC, and was a sequel to one of its first story arcs, The Forgotten.

Although originally scheduled for monthly issue, due to IDW's licence to publish Doctor Who expiring at the end of 2013, the final two issues were published on an accelerated weekly schedule.

Summary[edit | edit source]

The Doctor and Clara cross paths with Oscar Wilde and Calamity Jane in the frontier town of Deadwood as they pay their respects to the recently passed Wild Bill Hickok. But soon they discover the grave is empty, and that the town is being plagued by a masked gunman who shoots his victims with nothing but a finger!

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The frame in Part 3 showing all incarnations of the Doctor together in the Matrix is composed almost identically to the grouping of Doctors seen at the end of the television story The Day of the Doctor.
  • The "play that mocks me" referenced by Wilde is the comic opera Patience by Gilbert and Sullivan. Though not directly parodying Wilde specifically, it was a satire of the aesthetic movement he was part of a lectured on and his booking manager was also the producer of an American production of the play.
