    If you have not picked up a Doctor Who comic in a while or have been turned off by recent efforts, give this new “season 3″ first issue a try. It is a fun adventure and with it being a two issue arc, it is a cost low investment to try it out. If you happen to stumble upon the variant covers the TARDIS cut-out cover and the enemies of the Doctor cover are awesome. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Oct 2, 2012

    Doctor Who #1 is another solid entry in the storied Who franchise. While it may not hold immediate appeal for anyone wondering just what this Doctor guy is all about, it should be enough to at least pique some curiosity and send them diving backwards into glut of material from the past. Diggle remains true to the current status quo of the series, and fans will get to spend some more time with the Ponds. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Oct 3, 2012

    All in all, I enjoyed my first foray into the world of Doctor Who, and I will definitely be back for more. This didn't immediately jump to the top of my read pile, but there is a lot of potential for this to be a really entertaining comic series. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Walt Richardson Oct 4, 2012

    More than a few people who couldn't care less about what is in between the covers of this comic will pick it up. That's the power of a popular franchise. Those of us who are discerning when it comes to licensed properties, even (and perhaps especially) those we love, have nothing to fear from this new Doctor Who series — well, at least not from this first issue. With the comic franchise in Andy Diggle's capable hands for the time being, fans of the man in the big blue box can count themselves lucky… especially if, like me, you have not been too pleased with Moffat's recent handling of the show. But that's neither here nor there. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Edward Oct 3, 2012

    As for the artwork, its so far so good. The art style is interesting, looking almost water-color based at times. Still, you can make out who's meant to be who, and it certainly doesn't get in the way of anything. A little more definition is welcome here and there however the TARDIS may just be a blue box, but it does have panels on the front at least. Read Full Review

    Doctor Who #1 is a win for Andy Diggle, but he needs to get a new artist fast. Read Full Review
