4.0 out of 5 stars Final Sacrifice, 7 May 2014
Keen Reader "lhendry4" (Auckland, New Zealand) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Final Sacrifice (Doctor Who (IDW Numbered)) (Paperback)
“… it makes me go a bit floofy for a few hours”.

First published in 2011, this collection has the following stories:

Old Friend / Final Sacrifice: The Tardis takes the Doctor and Emily to the Shady Grove Rest Home where an old man Barnaby welcomes his return. Barnaby was the Doctor’s companion with whom he left a letter to guard upon the Doctor’s return. Only the Doctor doesn’t remember Barnaby at all. And at Oxford University in 1906, Robert Lewis is about to test out his time/space travel machine. But the Doctor is determined to find Matthew.

Ground Control: IN the year 6558 AD the Doctor’s Tardis is grounded at a space station by Ground Control; then the Doctor gets asked a whole lot of questions.

The Big, Blue Box: Douglas has seen the big, blue box before. But this is the first time someone from it has spoken to him.

To Sleep, Perchance to Scream: If the Doctor’s asleep in the Tardis, where do his nightmares go?

This is a really good collection; the stories are all good narratives, and the artwork very good. The characterisation of the Tenth Doctor is very good – all up, a really good read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Final sacrifice...but this is not the end!, 31 Jan 2011

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Final Sacrifice (Doctor Who (IDW Numbered)) (Paperback)
IDW's Doctor Who: Final Sacrifice is the third in a trilogy of books and brings together all the threads woven throughout the previous two graphic novels. The third volume includes the final four issues of the sixteen issue story and is backed up with the Annual edition of the mag and features panels of past Doctors and companions and a beautiful page of Tennant's enemies, not to mention the introduction of Matt Smith, beautifully captured in a cartoon sort of way.
The main story, Final Sacrifice, takes us back to the days of former companions Adric and Turlough and ties in with the fate of Matthew, a current member of the TARDIS crew, who is travelling with the Advocate. Why? You'll have to buy the graphic novels to find out why...but the sad fate of Matthew is deservedly shared by the Advocate!
Overall, the stories are good but I think the artwork may be an acquired taste. For me, it works. It captures the varying moods of the Doctor personna and the colouring is especially well done. There are also pin-up pages at the back of the book.
Any fan of David Tennant's Doctor will enjoy this set of three graphic novels but even a reader who appreciates good writing and unusual artwork will probably want to add these books to their collection.
