    Doctor Who: Four Doctors 4 is another great issue in what may be my favorite even comic of the summer. While I may be a Marvel fanboy and enjoy the hell out of Secret Wars, I can't pretend that it's accessible to new readers. Four Doctors is. It balances a love and knowledge of Who history with a knowledge that this might be a reader's first Doctor Who experience. Really, this is just Writing 101 here"know your audience"but so many comic writers either forget this or are simply unable to dig themselves out from under a mountain of continuity. Read Full Review

    Doctors make terrible decisions and the fourth Doctor is revealed: This was great! I got the payoff I wanted from last issue's build. The dialogue was fun, the action good, and the visuals pleasing. Read Full Review

    This series cannot be recommended more highly and the only trouble in the foreseeable future for Cornell and Edwards is going to be topping this issue, because Doctor Who: Four Doctors #3 has been the best of the series so far! Read Full Review

    Doctor Who: Four Doctors continues to be an event worth talking about, as although Secret Wars may still be garnering more attention, it pales next to this. This remains true as we reach the halfway point, as despite the pacing being a little off, the concept remains both refreshing and fitting to the world around it. Read Full Review

    Yet Another Media Site - Kevin Finnigan Aug 26, 2015

    Neil Edwards' artwork continues to perform well, with a few panels feeling stiffer than normal. Edwards isn't a slave to the look of the actors but keeps their personality on the forefront of his pencils. There are a few panels where are characters are screaming that look traced on, and don't fit the scenery around them. These are few and far between, but really take you out of the reading experience. The scenery and architecture feels like classic DOCTOR WHO sets, and helps bring the reader into the issue. Edwards' inks are light, with the thin lines giving everything a slightly more realistic feel. Specific praise is needed for Ivan Nunes' colors. He combines the bright worlds of the 10th and 11th Doctor with the slightly darker world of the 12th Doctor effortlessly. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Grant Raycroft Aug 26, 2015

    Doctor Who: Four Doctors #3 is by far the weakest entry in this series but that doesn't leave out chance of a great comeback. The issue is trying to do a lot in a short amount of time and would probably have benefitted from being stretched into two parts. While parts of Cornell's signature dialogue shine through, there's such a rush to the finish line it cuts out time with the companions and a last page reveal that could have used more build up. The artwork is good as ever as Neil Edwards and Ivan Nunes have a quality look to this book that covers everything from small moments to epic space battles. The creative team on this event warrants at least one more issue before a final verdict but be warned, it's a bumpy ride. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Claire Stevenson Aug 26, 2015

    Theres a fluidity to the plot in this latest issue that I feel has been missing from the series so far. Each sequence flows seamlessly into the next, with an underlying current that we are getting closer to uncovering some answers. The storyline isnt flawless towards the end of the issue, Alice demonstrates a depth of understanding that is a little bewildering in the circumstances but overall it finally feels like some of the threads are drawing together.
