Well. Finally got my grubby little protuberances on this latest in the series of reprinted Doctor Who Magazine comics, and this has to be the strongest yet. I can't recommend it enough! Everyone involved in its reprinting deserves congratulation.

The artwork looks immaculate and stunning in crisp black and white - so much more atmospheric than the horrible colour job from the 80s. And the story 'Voyager' itself is an absolute masterpiece - grand, mythic, and illusorily dreamlike, it really puts to shame all those reviewers who've praised the scope of Russell T Davies' imagination; this is the real deal. Worth the entry fee alone - which is just as well, as the last third of the collection suffers a noticeable drop in quality with the departure of writer Steve Parkhouse. The remaining stories are generic, reheated `sci-fi escapades,' but, oh well; they're more than compensated by the earlier stories.

If only more of Doctor Who, in all its varied media, could be brave enough to embrace stories so huge and strange and fairytale! It's also particularly nice for such a story to feature the overlooked Sixth Doctor.

Gorgeous - despite a decline in quality towards the end. Long may the comics continue to be reprinted - not only is there the whole Seventh Doctor's era to go, but the whole first half of the 90s to boot!

Oh this takes me back to when I was a schoolboy in the 1980s! I saw some of these comic strips in Doctor Who Magazine, then I bought the glossy Doctor Who Collected Comics Marvel special with (as I recall) The Shape Shifter and Voyager reprinted within the glossy cover. Then somebody at school collected all the miniature reprinted booklets of these stories that were given away free with Golden Wonder crisps, and which I still have in a scrapbook somewhere in the attic. I am going to have to dig them out again.

At the stuffy old age of 35 I don't really enjoy reading comic strips any more, especially some of the messy, incomprehensible efforts offered up by DWM over the last few years since the series was relaunched. But I've got a feeling that buying this book is going to rekindle my interest, at least in some of the older stuff from the '80s and '90s anyway.

I loved John Ridgeway's artwork. He always captured the likenesses of the characters PERFECTLY and appealingly, and the stuff that came from his own imagination was fantastic. The partnership of Steve Parkhouse and John Ridgeway was a match made in heaven. I wish there had been a lot more. I haven't got this book yet, but I know the contents and I will be buying it.

Black and white and drawn by John Ridgway, the Sixth Doctor strips were being written at a time when comics were having a real renaissance. Alan Moore was at the height of his powers writing Watchmen, Dark Knight Returns was out, this willingness to explore what the form could do definitely informed the writing of Steve Parkhouse and Alan McKenzie, meaning that the Sixth Doctor's comic book adventures show a sense of imagination rarely bettered in the comic strips or the TV show.

The Doctor gets a shapeshifting companion in Frobisher (the Penguin on the cover of the book) who talks like he's from Noo Yawk. Frobisher starts out as a bad guy, tracking down the Doctor for Greenbackalike Josiah Dogbolter, before boarding the TARDIS. Then there's a big dream logic adventure in Voyager, as Death forces the Doctor to search for stolen charts of the universe. Voyager isn't the end of the story though and there is much more mindbending and timebending work along the way.

The art is perfect for the book. Colin Baker's likeness is well captured and there is enough realism in the style that it convinces you of the fictional world that the Doctor inhabits.

It's a lot smarter than most episodes of the TV show, whichever version you prefer. Read it and enjoy!

I bought this as a present for my son, it arrived in good condition and he appeared to be pleased with it. Sorry I cannot comment on the content of this book as I did not read it.
