The British SciFi cult Doctor Who has been thrilling the fan community for 55 years with fantastic adventures in space and time. In 1963, the first episode of the TV series with the first Doctor flickered across the screens. Much has happened since then, not only that the moving images now appear in HD and color, but also the Doctor has undergone transformations and in his 13th incarnation will control the Tardis for the first time as a woman.
In addition to the various TV seasons, novels and radio plays expand the Who universe, and comic adventures of the time traveler from the planet Gallifrey are part of the cult and occupy a special position here, since the first comic strip story with the Doctor appeared just one year after the TV premiere in 1964. Since then, comic strips have always accompanied the TV saga, bridging the gaps between seasons and taking a journey through various publishing houses and formats, which with its errands and confusions is more than worthy of the Doctor.
The lecture by Steffen Volkmer looks at the history of comics, how they accompanied the TV series and how they are related in content.
