For new and old fans of the Doc
on April 17, 2009
Really enjoyed this story. The art can get uneven due to several artists being used, but it still ranges from good to great. The story is very interesting, featuring all 10 versions of the doctor, with small flashback stories for each incarnation. The writing captures the voice of the characters very well, without reading like a transcript of an episode.
It was a great story for someone like me, that only really knows the 9th & 10th doctors, but was interested in seeing more of the earlier versions (without watching boring old episodes on DVD... sorry, "The Five Doctors" put me to sleep!).
My only concern was that to understand every nuance of the story, you have to 1) have seen season 4 of the show, and 2) have a better-than-passing knowledge of pre-2005 Doctor Who stories. I have neither, and still really enjoyed the book; just bringing it up.
The book is worth the discounted Amazon price, that's for sure.
