I am not going to spoil the fun by doing a synopsis of each story because it is enough to say that I've read this volume three times already and can't wait for volume 2 to ship. A must for all Doctor Who fans!
Each issue follows the same structure in that it consists of a 'standalone' story involving that version of the Doctor but the final scene of each issue connects the overall story arc. NO SPOILERS although this runs the risk of becoming tired if the looming threat linking the issues doesn't develop soon.
The artwork is pretty top notch for each Doctor and is a strength of this story. The four issues in this volume are all entertaining tales - my personal favourite involves the third Doctor.
I've already read several issues ahead online and will definitely be acquiring Volume 2 when it's released later this year.
For fans of the Doc I would thoroughly recommend this volume.
This is great stuff; great individual stories within a great overarching story that is slowly building and keeps the reader intrigued by what may happen next. The artwork of each of the stories is great; the Doctor(s) and his various companions - Ian, Barbara, Vicki, Jamie, Zoe, Liz, Sarah Jane, the Brigadier, Leela and K9 - are all wonderfully captured and the dialogue and actions are all spot-on. Fantastic; can't wait for the next instalment!
I'd have to say though that I found Prisoners of Time a fitting tribute to the fifty years of Doctor Who. I loved the way the story involves each regeneration and the mystery to who is behind it all. I downloaded this as a trial run for my new kindle and have been very pleasantly surprised. Now that I have also read volume two I am looking forward to the final edition.
Still this is clearly building to something big. There are clues as to who the bad guy might be although they are probably just misdirection at this stage.
