This collection of just two stories was first published in 2013. The stories feature the Eleventh Doctor, as played by Matt Smith, travelling with Amy and Rory.
The Hypothetical Gentleman: This story is just under 50 pages, so is quite long. It is very well paced, and the artwork is terrific. The story has the Doctor, with Amy and Rory travelling to visit the Great Exhibition in 1851. After a few false starts, they get there, but the Doctor finds some exhibits that are not really quite right. Perhaps Charles and Emily Farfax can help?
The Doctor and the Nurse: Amy is fed up with the Doctor and Rory always squabbling, so sends them off to have some `bonding' time. This is a great story; there is an undercurrent of a seriously dangerous story underneath, but there is a large element of comic in this one. The Doctor and Rory's relationship is put under the microscope and they both react very differently, and it's rather amusing to the reader to view. Again, the artwork is fantastic - very different visually from the first story, but really appropriate. This is another long story, at around 40 pages.
This is a great Eleventh Doctor graphic novel - two really good stories, well planned and executed both in narrative and art. Terrific.
I purchased this volume as I wanted to try even more of Andy Diggle's excellent writing. His story was fantastic, and Buckingham's art was the icing on the cake for me. Seifert is new to me, but I'll keep an eye out for him again, his was also a great read. I've been a Phil Bond for years, so couldn't be more pleased. A really well presented volume with a nice gallery to round things off.
