    All in all, this could be one of the better issues for Prisoners Of Time, As a stand alone issue, its not very deep, yet its fun to read and suits a one-shot. As part of the series, it teases more of the actual story whilst providing plenty of fun in-between. Which ever way you look at it, its hard to not come out being rather happy about it.

    nfortunately, the cartoonish art of Philip Bond doesn't work for the story. His Sontarans are cute and cuddly and the main characters shift like play dough in their features/size. Still, this comic tribute to Doctor Who is at the top of my to-read pile. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Therapy - Cody May 29, 2013

    Doctor Who: Prisoners of Time has been an enjoyable series, but having the companions around as little more than cannon fodder has been a big drawback. The Doctors have been nailed down perfectly, to the Tipton's credit. This is a fun and fast story with vibrant art. Read Full Review

    The art from Philip Bond is passable, better than some issues, no better than others. IDW never seems particularly focused on great art. It’s odd for a comic book publishing company to consistently give readers boring artists, but it must be working for them. Bond’s pencils are clean, his lines strong, but no one here has any character. The Fifth Doctor looks almost goofy, as do his companions. I would almost rather this story arc had been a book than a comic if the art is going to be this dull. Read Full Review

    . . $4,22pgs. ADs @ back. Decent cover A, awful cover B. . . This next installment of the year long 50th anniversary Dr.Who comic, is pretty good overall. Peter Davidson was one of my favorite 2 doctors, and seeing Adric, Nyssa and Teegan togther agin is a real treat. We also see TWO legacy aliens, including the glowing jellyfish creeps of lighthouse island! The secret kidnapper gets the opener here, as well as a bit of reveal at the end. The Tipton's are doing a decent job of moving this along. Phillip Bond brings some good art to the series, with good color support by Kirchoff.
