    Frankly, Im struggling to find something to critique in Doctor Who: Ninth Doctor. The book is artistically solid, and the writing is charming and exactly what an episode of Doctor Who is. Pull this book, and let Titan Comics that they made all the right choices, because they did. Read Full Review

    An excellent premiere with three of Who‘s most popular characters. I'll be following this series, to be sure. Read Full Review

    Overall, Ninth Doctor #1 has some highly entertaining character interactions, some thought-provoking ideas, and gorgeous two and single page spreads of space. Blair Shedd's art looks like a much higher budget version of the TV show, and he uses speed lines and a panoply of colors to reveal the beauty of darkness of space. Ninth Doctor #1 serves as a great introduction to the world of Doctor Who for new fans and also reminds old fans of the sass and darkness of this regeneration of the Doctor. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Jeremy Radick Mar 17, 2015

    Scott and Shedd have crafted a first issue that meets the standard set by Titan's other Doctor Who series. It's a shame that this is only a limited series, but if you're a fan who yearns for more adventures with the Ninth Doctor, then your wish couldn't be better answered than this. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Mar 20, 2015

    To steal a phrase from the Ninth Doctor, this comic was, “Fantastic!” Reuniting us with fan favourite characters, as well as delivering a wonderful tale, Doctor Who: The Ninth Doctor #1 is a fabulous read, and one that all Whovians should pick up. Read Full Review

    If this series eased up on trying to be a direct adaptation, and instead just tried to be a fun Doctor Who comic, it would be much better. Read Full Review

    Critical Blast - Mike Maillaro Mar 18, 2015

    This was a great way to bring the Ninth Doctor back. I really hope that this book is a success and opens the door for more stories featuring other incarnations of the Doctor. That said, between TV, books, and comics, all of the other Doctors (including the Eighth Doctor who despite only one TV appearance had a ton of books) have had a lot of time in the spotlight. So I want to see more of the Ninth Doctor. AND more than that, I also want to see more of the War Doctor and his experiences during the Time War. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Apr 1, 2015

    "Doctor Who: The Ninth Doctor" #1 has promise but, while Scott's writing is moving along nicely, Shedd's part needs to catch up; that's a distinct possibility, as Shedd works with these characters and gets a bit more comfortable. The Ninth Doctor hasn't had a lot of strong media tie-in exposure up until now, so I want to see this comic do well; hopefully, it can be the first in a line of good comics with this group of characters. There's a lot of potential in filling in the time period with the Doctor, Rose and Jack travelling together, and this has real promise to deliver on that front. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Austin Lanari Apr 1, 2015

    In short, nothing about this book grabbed me, at least not in a positive way. The only reason that I would come back is for my love of Nine, Rose, and Jack, and that's a reason I would have even if the book was worse than this one. It's not a crime for something not to be excellent, but if the most special part of the story is the brand you licensed in order to write it, what reason is there to buy it? Read Full Review
