Is this a cameo I see before me?
With only a handful of specials and a run of Hamlet to occupy his time this year, it looks David Tennant is grabbing himself some face time in the prequels to the forthcoming GI Joe movie.
Issue 1 focuses on a pre-Joe era Duke on a mission in Papua New Guinnea, taking out an unknown party's ground station with which they've stolen control of a spy sat. Tennant has more of a supporting role in this, and there's a couple of places where we get a really good look. Here, where they're planning on how to hit the ground station:
and then again when things start going a bit pear shaped after the hostiles twig onto the deception that allows our heroes to hack the override:
After blowing the station, they lug the wounded to an evac and Duke, as the team leader, gets offered a spot on the GI Joe team which he refuses though the general recruiting him intimates the offer will be made again.
Next issue we're following Destro as we learn the 4 secrets to his family's success as dynasty of arms dealers, which mostly come down to the French suck. Here, Destro is kicking back in his private jet which is parked at Paris airport and look who happens to be walking past at the time but a couple that look suspiciously like the Doctor & Martha:
There are more than a few times when you could be forgiven for thinking you're reading a 9th Doctor comic.
