Book Description

31 Jan 2008
The Eighth Doctor faces new perils in this bumper collection of classic comic adventures!

This volume features eight amazing stories: THE FALLEN, UNNATURAL BORN KILLERS,
THE ROAD TO HELL, THE COMPANY OF THIEVES, THE GLORIOUS DEAD, THE AUTONOMY BUG, HAPPY DEATHDAY and TV ACTION!

The Doctor and his best friend Izzy are joined in the TARDIS by Kroton, a Cyberman with a heart
and soul! The action comes faster than ever as our heroes encounter genocidal Sontarans, vicious
space pirates, demented robots, mad gods, deadly samurai warriors... and the actor Tom Baker!

But the ultimate challenge is approaching; an epic, star-spanning battle that will decide the fate of all reality! An old friend is waiting to be reunited with the Doctor, while an even older enemy is lurking in
the shadows of time and space...

PLUS two bonus stories from the early days of Doctor Who Weekly, THROWBACK: THE SOUL OF A CYBERMAN and SHIP OF FOOLS, telling the origins of Kroton the Cyberman! AND a special six-page behind-the-scenes feature where writers Scott Gray, Alan Barnes and Adrian Salmon reveal background information on the stories¹ origins, alongside never-before-seen sketches and character designs from Salmon and fellow artists Martin Geraghty and Roger Langridge!

An essential collection for fans of Doctor Who and classic British comics!

4.0 out of 5 stars More Eighth Doctor goodness. 28 Aug 2006
By S. Bentley VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the second in Panini's collection of Eighth Doctor stories and again, you can see how comic strip sensibilities have informed the new TV series. As I mentioned in my review of End Game, in a way this is the best form that the McGann era has taken in following on from the TV offerings, mainly because it concentrates mainly on the plot, though with some choice character moments, and is presented in a visual medium, thus giving it an immediacy the audio plays and novels lack, however excellent they may be.

This collection sees Scott Gray settle into the writer's chair and it is in this collection that the Eighth Doctor comes alive for me. The previous collection had the Doctor a little distant, a little too generic, but the Eighth Doctor who cares so deeply for life comes through in this collection, particularly in the Glorious Dead, a tale of a battle for ultimate power which sees the return of the Master directly from the TV movie. It impresses with its scale and embracing of the comic strip form to deliver the concept of an omniversal spectrum. The first story is called the Fallen and deals with what happened to Grace Holloway after the movie. It's very suitable and when she doesn't go travelling with the Doctor at the end, you feel the same disappointment you felt at the end of the TV story. The likeness is very good and the characterisation spot-on. Also in this volume, an adventure in Japan's past, an encounter with intergalactic pirates and Kroton, the emotional Cyberman (surely inspiring Yvonne Hartman in Doomsday), and a visit to an asylum for delusional robots. But, in some ways, best of all are a couple of humour strips, celebrating various anniversaries.

By Victor HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
First released in 2007, this is the first episode of a of the second season of standalone releases for Paul McGann's Eighth Doctor outside of the monthly range of Big Finish releases. This is a one disc release, with a single 50 minute episode. There are some interviews with cast and crew at the end of the disc.

The story opens with the Doctor being tried in court for parking offences in contemporary London. Suddenly the scene shifts and he is catapulted into 17th century London and to the tender mercies of Judge Jeffries. Meanwhile Lucie, who started on a shopping trip in 2008 finds herself dodging trams in 1917. Needless to say, something odd is going on, and when the Doctor finds out what it is he is opposed to it and sets out to stop whatever it is.

It's a tale with potential, but never really lives up to it. Somehow the threat to the Doctor and his friends never seems quite real, and the ending is all a bit too easy. A bit more dramatic tension would have helped things along. And The Doctor and Lucie are separated for much of the adventure, a real problem as it is their excellent chemistry together that really drove even the wesaker episodes of the first season. So much is the Doctor/Lucie relationship missed that the writers include a companion for the Doctor who is very much like Lucie in many respects.

Whatever the faults of the script, one cannot accuse the actors of giving anything less than 100%. McGann is having fun again as the Doctor, and here his tiggerish side is to the fore. Sheridan Smith is simply superb as Lucy, and Rupert Van Tissart gives an excellent villainous performance that is worthy of a much better script.

All in all, not a great attention grabbing series opener. It tries to be a bit different but forgets about the drama in the process. A weak tale that I rarely listen to, preferring to jump to Max Warp instead. 2 stars.
