Our yearlong celebration of Doctor Who's 50th anniversary continues! Mmm, I wonder... aha! It is the Sixth Doctor who takes the spotlight in this issue of a 12-part epic adventure featuring all 11 incarnations of the Doctor! As Peri and Frobisher attempt to free the Doctor from an asylum, not one, but two villains are revealed!

    The Tiptons give readers a lesson of why the 6th Doctor dominated in comics. A combination of a strong script and art from the legendary John Ridgway make Prisoners in Time #6 and absolute must get. All of my previous gripes about the companions are wiped away as Peri and Frobisher get their fair share of the action. Prisoners of Time shows why Doctor Who makes for a fantastic comic.

    Over all, this is a good issue of Prisoner Of Time. It mixes the old and new and shows where the series is going, by celebrating as much Doctor Who as possible, something that's difficult to argue against. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Rob McMonigal Jun 27, 2013

    Writers Scott and David Tipton give us a very distinctive Doctor, exceedingly arrogant and angry, sniping at his human companion and destroying the monitor from which the Master mocks him. Unfortunately, the Master quickly gets lost and we have another artist whose work is lacking. Read Full Review

    . . $4, 22pgs + 1 pg article. B grade cover, cover stock change? All ADs @ back. . . With the 6th doctor, i enter into strange territory with some concern, but i was surprised to be engaging and enjoyable. i have no attachment to this regeneration, but i find myself attached fairly quickly. The use of Peri and the inclusion of Frobisher is delightful. I am excited to see a bit of the ace in hole develop and a peek at a future Doctor. John Ridgeway's facial work is wonderful here, and the art is enjoyable throughout. i would warn that the panels are bit bare and the colors are simple.
