As with Oblivion, the previous volume, the strips are in colour. It's a very rich colour that's sometimes a little strong but still quite well done and the art, which is by a diverse number of hands including Roger Langridge, Mike Collins, Antony Williams, John Ross and Martin Geraghy is generally high quality that convinces you you are in a real world and not in a world of exaggerated bodies as super hero books generally do.
The writing is also a little more diverse in terms of authors, with Gareth Roberts, writer of tv episode, the Shakespeare Code, turning in a story of football in the 70s and intergalactic amoebae. The majority of stories however are in the safe hands of Scott Gray, who guides the Doctor through some companionless adventures at a space bar, in Ancient Egypt in a story with links to the TV story Pyramids of Mars, an encounter with Springheeled Jack, a pulp character of Victorian London, a meeting with his "grandchildren", an encounter in the Wild West with werewolves and an old acquaintance from the earlier volumes who becomes his new companion, a visit to a space hospital to fight alien monkeys and an epic battle with the Cybermen. Cybermen from the future, all powered up. There's also at least one cameo appearance from an old friend of the Doctor's (in his sixth incarnation) which will be fun for diehard fans, but which may confuse or just have no impact on newer readers.
The stories are breathless fun and the characterisation of the Doctor deepens.Read more ›
