VINE VOICEon 12 October 2013
The eagerly awaited volume 2 of IDW's Doctor Who: Prisoners of Time is here at last and it is well worth the wait. This volume collects together issues 5 to 8 of the magazine of the same title from IDW, along with full page photographs of the appropriate four Doctors and cover artwork. The four stories are written by Scott and David Tipton and uniquely illustrated by Phillip Bond, John Ridgway, Kev Hopgood and Roger Langridge.
The fifth Doctor, with companions Tegan, Nyssa and Adric, come up against the Rutans and it is inevitable that the Sontarans cannot be far behind. It is also inevitable that the mysterious figure will kidnap Tegan, Nyssa and Adric. The sixth Doctor, Peri and Frobisher (the Penguin) are embroiled in a plot masterminded by the Master. The artwork for this story is exceptional. There is also a cameo appearance from the tenth Doctor! The seventh Doctor and Ace arrive in Scotland, 1830 and uncover another plot by the Master. Once again, the artwork is very good when compared with the artwork used to illustrate the eighth Doctor and Grace, which can only be described as 'unique'. In the final story of this volume, the mysterious kidnapper refers to the eighth Doctor as "old friend"...
Volume 3 is going to be a must!

This is the second volume in this graphic novel series, following on from Prisoners of Time volume 1. In that volume, the Doctors One through Four found themselves in a mess of trouble. Here we pick up with Doctor Five, who has landed the Tardis to replenish its temporal artron energy. With Tegan, Nyssa and Adric (who looks rather astonishingly short in this artwork) they find themselves under threat from Rutans. But a far greater threat is waiting in the wings for them. Then the Sixth Doctor with Peri and Frobisher find themselves in quite a different spot of bother. But there's a pattern emerging here, and we move on to the Seventh Doctor with Ace. And then the Eighth Doctor, back in San Francisco with Grace in 2000.

Each of these four chapters on the four doctors are done by a different artist, and the artwork is all quite unique for each story. Apart from Adric being rather short in the first story, the artwork for the story with the Eighth Doctor is a little one-dimensionally cartoony. But every story's artwork is definitely clear, precise and the wording/captions are all done very clearly. These chapters follow on very well from the chapters in Volume 1, and lead well into Volume 3.

Who is it that's tracking the Doctors and threatening him? Well, we have to wait for Volume 3 to find out what happens next. Great stuff.

I'm not usually too much of a fan of the comic strips for Who - but this is excellent. Recommended.

This issue continues the story fron the Davidson era to the Mcgan one. Good read and lots of fun, I'm really looking forward to the next instalment and I hope it's available on the kindle soon.

Consistently strong art work and a decent plot. Would have liked there to be multi Doctor scenes. But it remains gripping none the less.
