For those of us who are fans of Gallifrey, IDW’s Doctor Who series has been a blast – even though it’s had it’s ups and downs. The downsides have been that they switched artists and the art has been sketchy at times throughout the series and sudden changes or add-ins in some of the details seem random (a crystallizing sonic weapon in issue #5). But the positives so out-weight the negatives in this series, that I can’t help but hope that IDW continues with the rights for everyone’s favorite Timelord. IDW has created a natural follow-through for any fan of the show. Some of the panels and pages are so dead on that you just can’t help but actually hear David Tennant’s sputtering 🙂
Well, the next big thing coming down the line for followers of the TARDIS is Doctor Who: The Forgotten. Skrulls and Libra step aside, this looks like the mystery book to beat in the coming months!
From Chris Ryall – Stranded in a strange Museum that’s dedicated to him; and with no TARDIS in sight, The Doctor and Martha must make sense of their surroundings, hindered by one small fact – The Doctor has lost his memories of every one of his previous incarnations! With items relevant to each Doctor in their possession, The Doctor must try to use them to regain his memories before it’s too late, starting with his earliest incarnation’s memories, involving Susan, Barbara and Ian. This all-new series written by Tony Lee (Starship Troopers) features artist Pia Guerra in her first monthly comic since Y The Last Man!
