‘Doctor Who 10×07: The Pyramid at the End of the World’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Last week’s Doctor Who set up a new big bad for season 10, but left The Doctor knowing that they would be coming to Earth soon. In this week’s episode, the sudden appearance of a pyramid made it clear that they had arrived, and were ready to put their plans into action. When a 5,000-year-old […]

‘Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #3.3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by George Mann | Art by Mariano Laclaustra | Published by Titan Comics Normal service is resumed as, after last issue’s very good stand alone story , we return back to part 2 of George Mann’s ‘Beneath the Waves’ arc. It is always a little jarring when an ongoing storyline, such as this, is […]

‘Doctor Who 10×06: Extremis’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

If there is one problem with Doctor Who it is that things tend to stay the same, and we see nothing really that new. What we’ve needed is something to shake up the status quo. Extremis was promised to be a big episode, but the result was something of a refreshing surprise that many won’t […]

‘Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor #3.5′ Review

Written by James Peaty | Art by I.N.J. Culbard | Published by Titan Comics A whole lot of new this issue. New story arc, ‘Time of the Ood’, new writer in James Peaty and new artist in I.N.J Culbard. Although the last adventure was nicely wrapped up last issue, the ongoing plot thread of The […]

‘Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor #3.5′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by James Peaty | Art by Warren Pleece | Published by Titan Comics All change from last issue as we have another of those ‘interlude’ issues, where a different creative team fill in on the book for an issue. Having noticed something similar on other Doctor Who books, one could almost think they are […]

‘Doctor Who 10×05: Oxygen’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

It is fair to say that Doctor Who is on a bit of a roll at the moment with good episodes this season. In Oxygen, we go back to space in an episode that has repercussions that the Doctor was definitely not ready for. The Doctor (Peter Capaldi) finally gives in to his desire to […]

‘Doctor Who: Ghost Stories #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by George Mann | Art by Pasquale Qualano | Published by Titan Comics I was a little bit hasty with my preconceptions of this book. A mini-series based on a Dr Who TV Christmas special that I didn’t particularly like looked doomed to failure, review wise. Instead George Mann served up a first issue […]

‘Doctor Who 10×04: Knock Knock’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Ever since Blink, there has been an anticipation around creepy episodes of Doctor Who, that they will deliver the same creepiness. While some have come close, not many have managed to reach the same impressive quality of Blink. Knock Knock though promised something different, and that was David Suchet. In Knock Knock we are back […]

‘Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #3.2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by James Peaty | Art by Warren Pleece | Published by Titan Comics Well this issue, ‘The Boy With the Displaced Smile’, is apparently an interlude adventure that The Doctor had before re-uniting with Hattie as we saw last issue. Officially, this is The Doctor’s mind going back to a previous adventure, even as […]

‘Doctor Who 10×03: Thin Ice’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Three episodes into this year’s season of Doctor Who, and we are in Victorian England. With more of a hint of Dickens about some of the tropes used in the episode, will Thin Ice be a damp squib of an episode, or a behemoth of excellence? Instead of returning The Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and Bill […]

‘Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor #3.4′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Nick Abadzis | Art by Giorgia Sposito, Arianna Florean | Published by Titan Comics Ah, The Tenth Doctor. Simultaneously one of my favourite incarnations of The Doctor, and one of my least favourite Dr Who books. A little harsh perhaps, as objectively it is always a pretty decent quality book, but stacked up […]

‘Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #3.1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by George Mann | Art by Mariano Laclaustra | Published by Titan Comics This issue sees new beginnings, as Year Three publishing wise begins. Robbie Williams makes way for George Mann, and Rachel Stott for Mariano Laclaustra. A fair swap on the face of it, though I’ll miss Robbie Morrison’s scripts as they were […]

‘Doctor Who 10×02: Smile’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

When I first saw the teaser for this episode of Doctor Who, I had to admit that the thought of an Emoji robot just didn’t work for me. Surprisingly though, this new refreshed Doctor Who makes the lovable little killer robots actually work. This week The Doctor (Peter Capaldi) takes Bill (Pearl Mackie) into the far […]

‘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

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

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 […]
