Over its run, which his now nine issues deep, Titan Comics’ Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor has been an inconsistent, up and down affair. Every time it appears that it’s headed in the right direction, it takes a step backwards. That said, the last couple of issues have followed a notable upward trajectory, which continues with the latest installment, “Rise and Fall.”
The Doctor’s latest companion, Alice, is still reeling from thinking her mother was back from the dead, a nasty trick played on her by the Talent Scout, part of the nefarious Serve You Inc. that the team have encountered a number of times. In fact, it may be one too many times now, as they’ve finally gone too far. Of all the things we know about the venerable Time Lord, we’re well aware that he doesn’t abide people fucking with his friends or hurting the ones he loves. Now they’re out for a little payback, and to put a stop to Serve You Inc. once and for all.
