The previous collection, "Nemesis of the Daleks," was slight, recommended primarily for the title story, but the "The Gold Soldier" is far more solid and powerful, putting up nine comic strips and two text stories. Of the comics, "Fellow Travelers" has moody and terrific art, very much representing the television version of Doctor Who as the Doctor and Ace face a pair of insubstantial possession-based hitcher aliens. Another strong story is "Mark of the Mangragora," in which an old foe from from the TV series makes returns in present day - this story was even strong enough to warrant its own graphic novel back in day. And best of all is "The Good Soldier," another Cartmel tale featuring the Cybermen in a way the television screen could never have done at the time. The other tales here are a mixed bag, each with varying writers and artists, something similar in nature to the way the show was produced at the time.
Doctor Who Magazine has been spoiling readers with comic collections for a while now, and this one makes a reader hunger for more. Hopefully we won't have long to wait for the next batch of 7th Doctor strips!
