IDW will release a special one-shot Doctor Who comic, "The Whispering Gallery," by artist Ben Templesmith and writers Leah Moore & John Reppion.

In "The Whispering Gallery," the TARDIS lands in a mazelike gallery filled with thousands of talking pictures, and the Doctor and Martha discover they've come across a planet where showing emotion has been outlawed. The inhabitants have good reason for their suppression, but it wouldn't be like the Doctor to leave them in fear of truly living.

Married writing team Leah Moore and John Reppion have been fans of Doctor Who and pitched IDW Publishing on their story idea for the classic British sci-fi hero after Leah had a dream about a two-page spread one night.

Moore and Reppion became involved in the project after being approached by artist Templesmith (30 Days of Night), an admirer of their work.

Doctor Who: The Whispering Gallery hits stands on Feb. 25.
