He has been the 'showrunner' of IDW Publishing's Doctor Who license, writing the critically and commercially acclaimed mini series Doctor Who: The Forgotten and all issues of the subsequent ongoing IDW Doctor Who series. His Eleventh Doctor series began in January 2011.

If you are a fan of Doctor Who old & new you'll love this! It is a superbly presented story in which the Doctor has to regain his memories of regenerations past. Expect lots of nostalgia of old Doctors, companions and enemies. It was a great read & I couldn't put it down!

Format: Paperback
Originally published as a six-issue miniseries by IDW Comics, 'Doctor Who: The Forgotten' is an intriguing concept - when an amnesiac Tenth Doctor wakes up in the middle of a mysterious museum apparently dedicated to the Time Lord, Martha Jones must help him recover his memories by introducing him to a series of items from his past. And so, we get to see previously unseen adventures from his earlier incarnations, including a trip to Ancient Egypt for the First Doctor, a run-in with the Judoon for the Fifth, and a tantalising snippet of the Eighth Doctor's escapades in the Time War. Meanwhile, an enemy of the Doctor's is lying in wait, with a deadly agenda... Writer Tony Lee knows his 'Who' mythology inside out, and manages to create a cracking narrative which pays homage to the show's past whilst maintaining a compelling mystery. Whilst the plot falters slightly towards the end, there are some terrific twists and turns along the way, and 'The Forgotten' is a big improvement on IDW's first 'Doctor Who' miniseries. The artwork varies in style and quality from issue to issue, which is slightly disappointing, but a necessity after original artist Pia Guerra was unable to complete her commitments to the story - but that's a minor quibble, really, and I'd recommend 'The Forgotten' as one of the best 'Doctor Who' titles to be published under the IDW banner.

Wow. This is a fantastic book. Not one, not two but all TEN incarnations of the Doctor!
As well as these stars, we have a dozen or so companions, (including the original TARDIS crew of Ian, Barbara and Susan; Jamie, Zoe, Jo, the Brigadier, Sarah Jane, Romana II, Tegan, Nyssa, Adric, Turlough, Peri, Mel, Ace, Rose and Martha), plenty of classic villians, the Matrix, the TARDIS as a person, excellent cliffhangers, and more references to previous episodes than ever!
The artwork does alter slightly between issues, and I think the main cover's horrible, but those aren't major issues. It's all believable, enjoyable and a proper celebration for fans.
And yes, all 10 Doctors do meet up face to face! (But since nine of them are not strictly real, they don't remember the incident at all, and time is not altered).
I loved it.

When the product was advertised I was disappointed with the cover but bought it anyway. When I received the book it was EXACTLY the cover I wanted, with a brilliant drawing/artists impression of David Tennant as THE Doctor. Very happy with this.

Having come across some of this artwork on another website, I was looking forward to seeing the completed item. It did not disappoint!

The stories were in character and believable - which is important. The Eight's Doctor's was a tale to behold imo. It's a book you can keep coming back too time after time, I still notice new things each time.
