"I really hope they turn him into a mummy."
"Why, so he'll be less scary?"
"No - so the bandages cover his mouth."
This is a great graphic novel, featuring the Tenth Doctor (David Tennant), plus some old and older friends and enemies. It definitely helps if you are familiar with much of the Doctor's past, both the `classic' and the `newer' past of the Doctor, as the story does move over much of his lives and touches on things that fans and fanatics (like me) would know.
The Doctor and Martha find themseles in what appears to be some kind of museum, filled with things familiar to the Doctor. But when he can't remember things, they start to fade. But are there items there that may help him to regain his memories? And who or what is doing this to him anyway? In fighting this unknkown danger, the Doctor revisits old stories with previous Doctors (that are new to us, and which feature such companions as Ian and Barbara, Jamie and Zoe, Jo, Romana, Turlough and Tegan, Peri, Ace and heaps more. The story is cleverly interwoven around these memory features and the overarching story, as it unfolds, is a very cleverly prepared and complex story in its own right. There's absolutely no feeling of things being `stitched together' - it all fits in very well - main story, substories, and the Doctor and companions are drawn, characterised and written brilliantly. This is great stuff.

i'm only halfway through, but i'm thoroughly enjoying this.
the artwork is superb, the stories are great and the dialogue feels true to each incarnation of the doctor.
if you are a fan of doctor who, then buy this. you definitely won't regret it.
