Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #5 Delivers Fast-Paced Adventure And Death Cults

fb share tweet share

Doctor WhoWhile we won’t likely see new episodes of Doctor Who on TV until much later this year, Peter Capaldi’s Twelfth incarnation of the venerable Time Lord shows no signs of slowing down on the pages of Titan Comic’s Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor. In fact, the latest issue, #5 in the continuing run, delivers the fastest paced adventure we’ve see yet from this title.

This issue picks up where the last one left off. The Doctor, along with badass, revenge-minded Amazon warrior Rani, and Prinyanka, the daughter of one of the Doctor’s old time travelling buddies, search for a way to defeat the ancient Indian death cult that is currently trying to crash a continent sized spaceship into the surface of the Earth, killing millions of people in the process. That’s the kind of thing secret death cults are prone to do we guess, but someone has to feed the necro-cloud we suppose.

Doctor Who Has An Epic Comic Crossover Planned, Details Here

fb share tweet share

Doctor WhoWhile Doctor Who may be on the Twelfth incarnation of the venerable Time Lord on the TV, numbers Ten and Eleven (and soon to be Nine) are still very much alive and kicking in the pages of Titan Comics various continuing series. Thus far the three versions of the character have been kept separate on the page, but there’s something big in the works, as there is a three-way crossover planned.

Scheduled to drop this summer, David Tennant, Matt Smith, and Peter Capaldi’s Doctors will come together for one big adventure in the TARDIS. Written by Paul Cornell (Wolverine, Batman & Robin, as well as tons of TV work a few Doctor Who novels), this is going to be a five-part affair.

Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor #8 Dives Into Endless War

Doctor WhoThis issue of Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor, #8, “The Infinite Astronaut, as well as the previous one, have made a big deal about this being a two-part affair. What this really does is drive home the difference between this Titan Comics title and the other two current Doctor runs—The Tenth and Twelfth Doctors. Both of those comics have, thus far in their youngish runs, only unveiled their arcs across multiple issues, even as many as five or six to fully wrap a story up. This is one of the biggest fundamental differences, and with such a truncated narrative approach, it’s been difficult to get as invested in The Eleventh Doctor as the other two. And while this two-parter is a move in the right direction, it’s not a particularly big step.

We find the Doctor, and his band of weirdo misfit travelling companions—future past rock star Jones, the creature known as ARC, and, of course, former librarian assistant Alice Obifune—in the same situation as they were when the last issue ended. They’re in the middle of a never-ending space war that they need to stop before it costs any more lives or engulfs the Earth—and you know how the Doctor feels about war.

Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor #7 Weeps With The Angels

Doctor WhoThe last issue of Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor, introduced a new creative team and kicked off the most grim, desolate of these new adventures of David Tennant’s version of the venerable Time Lord. Now they’re back with Issue #7, “The Weeping Angels of Mons.” Trapped on the front lines of World War I, and if things weren’t bad enough, they go from bad to worse as one of the Doctor’s most sinister foes has tagged along for a ride.

After getting blown up by a mortar and imprisoned as German spies, it doesn’t get any easier for the Doctor and his latest travelling companion, Gabby Gonzalez. Not only do the British forces want to throw them in front of a firing squad—one officer in particular might just dispense with that formality in his office unless he can control his temper—but there are angles about. And these aren’t the kind of angles you want to be touched by, no, these are Weeping Angels, and they’ve come to hunt.

Doctor Who Is About To Vanish From Amazon Prime Instant Video

SorryRuh roh. Last month word spread that Netflix’s contract with the BBC was about to end, resulting in the streaming service losing Doctor Who, Red Dwarf, and tons of other noteworthy shows. That story was one of the biggest ones we’ve run in a long time when it came to reader response, proving you folks take your streaming TV seriously. Well, Netflix thankfully renewed its contract and kept Who after all, but now there’s bad news for you Amazon Prime customers out there. Doctor Who and much of Prime Instant Video’s British television programming is about to go the way of the dodo, and it looks a lot less likely that there will be a last-minute reprieve this time around.

Neil Gaiman Admits His Doctor Who Ep ‘Nightmare In Silver’ Was A Bit Of A Dud

fb share tweet share

NightmareGiven his talent, style, and the sort of things he likes to write about, fans spent years imagining what it would be like to Neil Gaiman write for Doctor Who. In 2011 we got to see just that with “The Doctor’s Wife,” a sweet, funny, and heartbreaking story which saw The Doctor sharing an adventure with his TARDIS — literally with her, after the vessel’s consciousness was shifted into a humanoid body. One of modern Who‘s finest hours, “The Doctor’s Wife” received near universal acclaim and netted Gaiman both a Ray Bradbury Award and a Hugo. Naturally, fans wanted to see more Who from Gaiman, and in 2013 he returned with an episode entitled “Nightmare in Silver.”

It wasn’t only fans and critics who felt that “Nightmare in Silver” was a misstep. In a recent interview, Gaiman admitted his regrets about “Nightmare,” and explained what he was originally going for with the episode. He told Radio Times:
