    An excellent Doctor adventure that will make you miss David Tennant more than you already do. Read Full Review

    All in all, this is a strong issue for the mini-series and, with only two issues to go, it does a great job at ensuring things leave on a high. Allons-y! Read Full Review

    Things never go well for the Doctor when he makes it to Hollywood as he finds aliens trying to upstage humanity in a story that doesn't quite capture the magic of David Tennant. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Nov 12, 2013

    In short, the 50th anniversary tribute comic has meandered a bit getting here, and I'm quite bothered that it was only the modern Doctors who were able to actually DO anything about the plot targeting all their lives, a product of the writers clearly being bigger fans of the modern material. That isn't a fatal flaw in the book, as this issue serves as a nicely drawn one-shot adventure of the Tenth Doctor and underrated companion Martha, but it does mute some of my appreciation of the series as a whole.

    There is nothing really that excites about this issue other than it being another chapter in the Prisoners of Time anniversary series. The story is mediocre at best, and the art is only slightly better than the story unless it is a close up and you can really see the detail that the artist has worked to put in. If I wasn't already involved in the series, I can't say that I would pick this up. However since I am, I'll lay down my cash for it and hope that next month's issue is better. Read Full Review

    "Doctor Who: Prisoners of Time" #10 ultimately comes back to the frustrating fact that one wants to like it at a level greater than its actual quality. The core concept isn't bad, and with a strong editorial hand I feel like this could have gone places. In the end, though, it just doesn't quite ever work. Lovely art, though. Read Full Review
