5.0 out of 5 stars Superb saga!, 18 Feb 2013
This review is from: Doctor Who: The Child of Time TP (Paperback)
"The Child of Time" is the 11th Doctor era equivalent of Steve Parkhouse's excellent 5th Doctor epic "The Tides of Time". The two stories have much in common; jumping from era to era, past and future war, time periods bleeding into each other and an antagonist with the power to manipulate time and space. That's where the comparison ends though, and it's no bad thing. "The Child of Time" stands on it's own two feet, and is a more sophisticated tale in keeping with the greater emotional content of the modern series. Rather than an evil horned beast, the antagonist is an entirely new creature trying to ensure it's own survival. In the course of the adventure, enemies old and new appear, and the tone rolls from thrilling and tense to whimsical and surreal with the kind of narrative agility displayed by Davies and Moffat at their best. I think my favourite story in the collection is "The Golden Ones", simply because I love the artwork and I'm a sucker for UNIT stories, but each installment is expertly written with a genuine passion and understanding of the series and what makes it unique, as well as a great knack for translating that to the comic medium.

A great read, highly recommended.
