    Scott and David Tipton give every incarnation a moment to shine, with dialogue/action that perfectly nail their characters and even throw a few good companion moments in to boot. Kelly Yates gets the unenviable task of drawing this issue, and she meets the challenge head on. Read Full Review

    There were some lows in this series' run, but there were more highs overall. The conclusion was great and gave me what I wanted. A worthwhile addition to any Who fan's collection. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Edward Nov 19, 2013

    All in all, this isn't a story for the ages – but as a quick flick through 12 issues celebrating such a beloved series it's a fantastic effort. Read Full Review

    This comic also has a few hiccups sure like continuity errors with show like Rose Tyler being here and is okay about the Doctor's regenerated forms and the lack of companions from other parts of Doctor Who like the comics and the radio plays. But all and all this was a okay comic. Although I would recommend buying the first 11 issues before reading this issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Therapy - Cody "The Thorverine" Ferrell Nov 20, 2013

    Prisoners of Time has been a rocky ride, but it finishes in a fun fashion. It gives you what you wanted and what you expected, but it also wraps up a really intriguing story by bringing back Adam. It hasn't been consistent and it ends in a bit of a rush, but it has had some great art. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Nov 24, 2013

    Comparatively speaking, this is the least successful of the anniversary stories I've experienced recently (counting the Big Finish 45th and 50th anniversary tales, and the televised version yesterday), but that doesn't mean it's not a decent read. Artistically speaking, this is one of the most successful issues of this mini, with everyone looking recognizable as their live-action selves, and some lovely work in the big combat clusterschmozz, and it's a pleasant enough diversion overall. Doctor Who - Prisoners Of Time #12 ends exactly where I knew it had to go, without any flashy out-of-character moments (The First, Seventh and Second Doctors spend the whole fight sequence devising a plan and avoid combat) but doesn't really go too far beyond its own basic premise of "The Doctors meet and stop a bad guy".

    Issue #12 of Prisoners of Time, even with its dull art from Kelly Yates, shines in its story. The rest of the series was a far too uneven game of hit and miss. Read Full Review

    A worthwhile wrap-up to the maxi-series, although it favors the newer doctors over the old ones. The writing could have dug deeper but the one shots worked in and of themselves. The art is serviceable but can be ugly at times. Really i hoped for more at $4 a pop, but i enjoyed at overall as a Doctor Who fan.
