‘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

by Dean Fuller

Written by Cavan Scott | Art by Adriana Melo | Published by Titan Comics Although this title has in general been a little underwhelming, there have been moments that make you think it’s just about to turn the corner, that it’s going to go on a run of fine issues. The previous story arc was […]

‘Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #2.13′ Review

by Dean Fuller

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) […]

‘Doctor Who: The 9th Doctor #8′ Review

by Dean Fuller

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 […]

‘Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor #2.15′ Review

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 […]

‘Doctor Who: The 9th Doctor #7′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Cavan Scott | Art by Cris Bolson | Published by Titan Comics With some of the Who titles hitting it out of the park right now, one or two of the other Who titles are struggling a little to keep up. The Tenth Doctor’s book springs to mind, as does this Ninth Doctor […]

‘Doctor Who: The Third Doctor #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Paul Cornell | Art by Christopher Jones | Published by Titan Comics The first two issues of this series have had me dribbling with excitement and nostalgia. Yes, not the most edifying sight you’ll ever imagine, but true. Paul Cornell has somehow managed to bottle the feel and look of not only the […]

‘Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #2.11′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Robbie Morrison | Art by Mariano Laclaustra | Published by Titan Comics So just as I warm to a title I had previously been having a bit of a struggle getting into to, they change the creative team. Typical. If this is a good or bad move I will have to reserve judgement […]

‘Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor #2.15′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Nick Abadzis | Art by Giorgia Sposito | Published by Titan Comics As there are so many Dr Who books to choose from now, it is natural to have favourites. This has not been one of mine over time, which is a shame as the Tenth Doctor is one of my favourites. I […]

‘Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #2.10′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by George Mann | Art by Rachel Stott | Published by Titan Comics I haven’t been reading this series that much for various reasons. One is the normal reason, time, and the fact there is such a strong crop of comics out at any one time these days. Other reasons include the fact I […]

‘Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor #2.14′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Si Spurrier | Art by Simon Fraser | Published by Titan Comics Been a little while since I checked in on the Eleventh Doctor, and I was curious to see how much timey-wimey stuff I had missed. Scripter Si Spurrier I know mainly from 2000AD and Judge Dredd, and I liked the way […]

‘Doctor Who: The Third Doctor #2′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Paul Cornell | Art by Christopher Jones | Published by Titan Comics Second issues. I wonder if writers sit in front of that computer screen wondering just how they can maintain the quality of that first issue, or even up the ante. Or do they just laugh at us mere mortals and have […]

‘Doctor Who: The 9th Doctor #6′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Cavan Scott | Art by Adriana Melo | Published by Titan Comics Probably the best part of last issue was the ending. Not that it was a bad issue by any means, though slightly pedestrian, but that the ending saw The Doctor, Jack and Rose dragged back in time to the 1970′s/1980′s heyday […]

‘Doctor Who: The 9th Doctor #5′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Cavan Scott | Art by Adriana Melo | Published by Titan Comics The Ninth Doctor is the one that got away, the incarnation that promised so much when he first appeared but left us wondering what could have been when he left. The one series Christopher Eccleston completed gave us a decent introduction […]

‘Doctor Who: The Third Doctor #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Paul Cornell | Art by Christopher Jones | Published by Titan Comics For most people, Tom Baker IS The Doctor, and he was certainly a big part of my TV viewing childhood. For me though, my favourite Doctor was always the Jon Pertwee Third Doctor. He just looked like a really cool granddad […]

‘Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor #2.10′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Nick Abadzis | Art by Elena Casagrande | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp Although for me this has overall been one of the weaker Who titles, in recent issues I’ve found myself warming more to it. Interestingly enough, that coincided with both Eleonora Carlini and Elena Casagrande taking a break […]
