5.0 out of 5 stars Ten Doctors - One Fantastic Story, 21 Sept. 2009
This review is from: Doctor Who: The Forgotten (Paperback)
Originally published as a six-issue miniseries by IDW Comics, 'Doctor Who: The Forgotten' is an intriguing concept - when an amnesiac Tenth Doctor wakes up in the middle of a mysterious museum apparently dedicated to the Time Lord, Martha Jones must help him recover his memories by introducing him to a series of items from his past. And so, we get to see previously unseen adventures from his earlier incarnations, including a trip to Ancient Egypt for the First Doctor, a run-in with the Judoon for the Fifth, and a tantalising snippet of the Eighth Doctor's escapades in the Time War. Meanwhile, an enemy of the Doctor's is lying in wait, with a deadly agenda... Writer Tony Lee knows his 'Who' mythology inside out, and manages to create a cracking narrative which pays homage to the show's past whilst maintaining a compelling mystery. Whilst the plot falters slightly towards the end, there are some terrific twists and turns along the way, and 'The Forgotten' is a big improvement on IDW's first 'Doctor Who' miniseries. The artwork varies in style and quality from issue to issue, which is slightly disappointing, but a necessity after original artist Pia Guerra was unable to complete her commitments to the story - but that's a minor quibble, really, and I'd recommend 'The Forgotten' as one of the best 'Doctor Who' titles to be published under the IDW banner.
