Review: Doctor Who, The Eleventh Doctor – After Life

We already knew that the Doctor kept himself busy in the two hundred or so years he spent wandering after he dropped off Amy and Rory from their honeymoon. Quite a lot of stories can fit inside that time. Coming out later this month, the first volume of Titan Comics’ Doctor Who, The  Eleventh Doctor collects together the first five issues of these stories, featuring the Eleventh Doctor and his newest companion, Alice.

Life has become cold and dreary for Alice Obiefune after the death of her beloved mother. The forty-something library assistant can’t seem to drag herself out of a fog of grief, and things just get worse when she loses her job to cutbacks and her comfy apartment is scheduled for demolition to make way for a block of luxury flats. Everything is quite grey…until in a burst of obviously Oz-inspired technicolor she’s confronted by huge rainbow-colored alien dog being chased by a madman with a blue box.

When Alice is forced into a high-stakes solo challenge that could end the conflict, she’ll need to muster everything she’s learned on her travels with the Doctor in order to succeed – and even that might not be enough!

Has the Doctor made a grave mistake – or is it all part of a larger plan?

Plus! We’ve heard of the fearsome Amstrons of the Great Wheel throughout the series… But what is their shocking secret, revealed this issue?!

PREVIEW: Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor #6

When Gabby and the Doctor arrive by accident in No Man’s Land in July, 1916, they’re met by Corporal Jamie Colqhoun – a soldier who knows from bitter experience that there are worse things than the Jerries out in the rat-strewn trenches.

Things that drift through the smoke of a thousand cannon shells, and move only when you look away. Shadows that flit over artillery-blasted field hospitals and throw their terrifying wings over the living. Statues that steal your life in an instant.

The Weeping Angels.

GABBY IS DYING FOR HER ART!

IN STORES NOW!  With the Doctor half the man he should be, under the draining influence of an alien tourist trap, Gabriella is left to shoulder the burden of saving him, the planet, and the future of art in our galaxy – and all on her first off-world trip, no less!

Trapped in a terrifying creative retreat, where what was once beautiful has been rendered corrupt and horrifying, is Gabby strong enough to reverse whatever has been done to the Doctor and save an intergalactic artistic community from itself? You’d better hope so!

And who, or what, are the deadly Consultants… and what plans do they have for the Doctor?!

The 12th Doctor is coming to Titan Comics!

The 12th Doctor is coming to Titan Comics!

Offering shocks, surprises, and galaxy-shaking revelations, seasoned TARDIS pilot Robbie Morrison (Drowntown, The Authority, 2000AD, Nikolai Dante) and New York Times-bestselling artist Dave Taylor (Batman: Death by Design; 2000AD) mark the start of their first five-issue run by diving headfirst into the console room and pulling all the levers they can – spinning the new Doctor off to his most challenging destination yet!

Freshly regenerated and with a new head full of unanswered questions, the Doctor (as played by Peter Capaldi) whisks Clara Oswald (as played by Jenna Coleman) away to a strange and distant world.

Clara thought she was in for an evening of marking essays on the Metaphysical Poets, followed by going out on a date – or at least trying to. You know, normal stuff.

Instead, she’s facing down exotic flora and fauna in her best dress, backing up the Doctor on a trek through traumatically alien undergrowth – and she doesn’t even know what the Doctor is searching for, or what will try to kill them should they find it!

Comic-Issues #186: The Doctor has landed!

Spoilers! We’ve been waiting for months, and it’s finally here! No, not football season (but have fun with that too.) No, it’s new episodes of Doctor Who, with a brand new Doctor! Peter Capaldi has his first full episode as the 12th Doctor (or is it the 13th?) and Anthony and Elizabeth are breaking down the entire episode into itty bitty wibbly wobbly pieces.

If you haven’t seen the Series 8 premiere episode, you’ll want to skip this podcast, we’re spoiling everything.

Review: Doctor Who – Tales of Trenzalore

Review: Doctor Who – Tales of Trenzalore

‘We didn’t want to disturb you, Doctor. You’re an important man.’

The Doctor rolled his eyes. ‘Important? I’m not important. I’m the least important man in this town.’ He waived his stick at the assembled townsfolk. ‘It’s you lot who are important…”

To celebrate the return of Doctor Who, I’m going to review a second collection of Doctor Who short stories in a row. Love Doctor Who, love short stories. Both together? Can’t resist.

It’s hard to picture, since we only get to see a brief montage of it in one episode, but the Doctor was stranded on Trenzalor, on purpose, for nine hundred years. Nine centuries protecting the town of Christmas against attacks by pretty much every enemy the Doctor had ever faced. You can have a lot of adventures in nine hundred years; Tales of Trenzalore tells four of them.

Review: Doctor Who – 11 Doctors, 11 Stories

‘Be careful, Aggie! Remember, ‘The Doctor is a Master of Deceit”.’

‘Aggie?’ said the Doctor thoughtfully. ‘I wonder what that’s short for.’

The girl’s nostrils flared proudly. ‘My full name is Agony-Without-End-Shall-Be-The-Doctor’s-Punishment.’

‘Ah,’ said the Doctor. ‘You know, Leela, just between ourselves, I’m starting to feel that I’m not entirely welcome here.’

Rejoice! Season 8 of Doctor Who starts in just two days; brand new season, brand new Doctor. And I can’t think of a better way to get ready for the grand entrance of Number Twelve than a collection of short stories about all eleven Doctors who came before.

11 Doctors, 11 Stories brings together eleven award-winning authors, each telling their own tale about a different incarnation of the wandering Time Lord. The stories are about as different from each other as the Doctors are themselves, and since they’re all extremely well-written, I really think the story you like best is going to depend on which one features “your” Doctor.
