‘Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor #3.4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Alex Paknadel | Art by Simon Fraser | Published by Titan Comics Alex Paknadel did a pretty decent job last issue, building on the pieces put in place by Rob Williams. Although the sub-plot of the renegade Silent The Scream is ongoing, as he pursues The Doctor, The Sapling and Alice, the focus […]

‘Doctor Who 10×01: The Pilot’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

With the knowledge that Peter Capaldi is set to leave, and we also have a new companion, I will admit I was worried about the latest series of Doctor Who. With a name like The Pilot though, that insinuates a brand-new start for this show, but is this the names only meaning? The Doctor (Peter […]

‘Doctor Who: Ghost Stories #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by George Mann | Art by Ian Rodriguez | Published by Titan Comics Before I get stuck into the review in earnest, cards on the table time. I didn’t enjoy the Christmas special that inspired this 4 part mini-series. The Return of Dr Mysterio appeared on our screens Christmas 2016, and seems to have […]

‘Doctor Who: The Ninth Doctor #11′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Cavan Scott | Art by Cris Bolson | Published by Titan Comics Is the Ninth Doctor just tricky to write? You would think that the relative lack of history for this incarnation would be a good thing, allowing the writer a little bit more freedom with their scripts than you would get for […]

‘Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #2.15′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Robbie Morrison | Art by Rachel Stott | Published by Titan Comics Robbie Morrison continued his winning streak with last issue, the first of this new arc. Although for a second it looked as though Morrison would be treating us to the adventures of the Time Surgeon and companion Kara, fighting the dastardly […]

Graphic Novel Review: ‘Doctor Who – Supremacy of the Cybermen’

by Dean Fuller

Written by Cavan Scott, George Mann | Art by Ivan Rodriguez, Walter Geovanni | Published by Titan Comics The Cybermen, bar none, have always been my favourite Dr Who villains. In fact, not only my favourite Who villains, but in my top ten of science fiction villains ever. I could also bore you with reasons […]

‘Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor #3.3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Nick Abadzis | Art by Giorgia Sposito | Published by Titan Comics Quite the frustrating book for me this one. I continually struggle to enjoy it, but also continually will it on to make me change my mind. To make it worse, I can’t quite put my finger on what exactly doesn’t quite […]

‘The Doctors: The Jon Pertwee Years’ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

When it comes to Doctor Who, the character often wins over the audiences because they are kind-hearted and in many ways, are the saviour (or Doctor) we need. While a lot of focus does get given to the ‘new’ breed of Doctors, for fans of the old school we are spoilt for choice with who […]

‘Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor #3.3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Alex Paknadel | Art by Simon Fraser | Published by Titan Comics Colour me surprised to pick up this issue and find writer Rob Williams name missing, replaced by that of Alex Paknadel, a name I am mainly familiar with from the Arcadia title published by Boom! A quick check, and it seems […]

‘Doctor Who: The Ninth Doctor #10′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Cavan Scott | Art by Adriana Melo | Published by Titan Comics This is a book on the up at the moment. It has been fair-to-middling for most of its publishing life, which although not bad places it near the bottom of the pile of Doctor Who titles being published. The previous UNIT […]

‘Doctor Who: The Third Doctor #5′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Paul Cornell | Art by Christopher Jones | Published by Titan Comics Ah, the Third Doctor series, one of a handful of books I really look forward to each issue. This has been a blast, a near perfect blend of nostalgia and skillful writing, of a nod to the past and a wink […]

‘Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor #3.2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Rob Williams | Art by Leandro Casco, Wellington Diaz | Published by Titan Comics What a great start to year three last issue was. Rob Williams brought a real breath of fresh air to the book, and I especially enjoyed the little tongue in cheek pop at Brexit, delivered in typically Whovian style. […]

‘Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #2.14′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Robbie Morrison | Art by Rachel Stott | Published by Titan Comics Robbie Morrison’s arrival has seen this book go from middle of the pack to one of the front runners. His first story arc didn’t put a foot wrong, and he created quite the star turn in Julie D’Aubigny. With the slightly […]

‘Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor #3.1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Rob Williams | Art by I.N.J Culbard | Published by Titan Comics Year 3, in publishing terms, has come for The Eleventh Doctor. A series that I haven’t exactly disliked, but not one I feel has been great either. Lacking a little of that timey-wimey magic, which for this incarnation is criminal indeed. […]

‘Doctor Who: The Third Doctor #4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Paul Cornell | Art by Christopher Jones | Published by Titan Comics This series has been a rare case of when, occasionally, style over substance is not a problem. Although the storyline has been perfectly fine, what has made this book work so well is the affection for the characters and the era. […]

‘Doctor Who: The Ninth Doctor #9′ Review

Written by Robbie Morrison | Art by Mariano Laclaustra | Published by Titan Comics Robbie Morrison and Mariano Laclaustra’s arrival on this title has been like a breath of the sweetest air. Up to their arrival three issues ago, the book felt like it was struggling a little, lacking a little of that Who magic […]

‘Doctor Who: The Return of Doctor Mysterio’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Doctor Who is going through a change, with a new companion and of course the end of the Moffat era. Right now though this is Christmas day, and we have Doctor Who: The Return of Doctor Mysterio. Can Doctor Who do a super hero story that isn’t drowned in pure cheese? Doctor Who (Peter Capaldi) […]

Written by Cavan Scott | Art by Cris Bolson | Published by Titan Comics I’ve been trying to like this book more than I currently do. The pieces are all there, but they just don’t seem to be working well together. The Ninth Doctor, Rose Tyler and Captain Jack Harkness is as strong a tandem […]

by Dean Fuller

Written by Si Spurrier | Art by Simon Fraser | Published by Titan Comics So here we are, the final issue in Year Two of the Eleventh Doctor. Obviously that doesn’t affect The Doctor much, as Year Three begins almost immediately and he will find new escapades aplenty to get tied up in. What is […]

‘Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #2.12′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Robbie Morrison | Art by Mariano Laclaustra | Published by Titan Comics Last issue saw the arrival of Robbie Morrison on the book, and boy did he come flying out of the creative gates. Likewise for new artist Mariano Laclaustra. They threw us back in time to 1695 France, where Gothic shenanigans aplenty […]
