A devil haunts the midnight crossroads, and musicians are its prey! There's a devil out on the bayou. Something stalking bluesmen through the swamps of Mississippi, offering them talent beyond imagining, worlds at their feet in exchange for their souls! When Alice asks the Doctor if they can visit one of her mother's musical heroes, she's initially disappointed. Is Jones, a forgettable singer whose talent seems to be that of disappearing in a crowded room, really the colossal talent who brought passion, creativity and meaning to her mother's life? And what does he have to do with the nightmarish deals taking place in the dead of night?

    We The Nerdy - Josh McCullough Oct 1, 2014

    Really, my only problem with the issue is the conclusion, its just all over way too fast. The story is expertly paced at the beginning drew me into the mystery, with me on the edge of my seat towards the end. Unfortunately, after introducing all these great elements and characters expertly it feels like it ends too suddenly. I almost wish this issue had been a two-parter like the show often does, it wouldve given the brilliant supporting cast more time to shine as well as carry the suspense more. Read Full Review

    The issue makes for enjoyable reading, and Williams and company still have an ear for making their stories seem completely in sync with the televised adventures of this Doctor. I'm really enjoying Titan's series, and this creative team keeps on impressing. Read Full Review

    So though its not quite at the level of the first two comics, its still a rollicking ride. Its a silly detour that allows us to slowly begin to piece together the Doctor's motivations and just how powerful SERVEYOUInc are. All the while featuring the best companion of the past few years, David Bowie and the return of Bessie. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Oct 1, 2014

    Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor #3 was going somewhere with this story, even laid down the foundation for a larger mystery to uncover at the end, though as I said before the execution needed work. Especially when we have ended two issues now that left us with more questions than answers. Maybe everything is leading up to a bigger picture, but that remains to be seen or clear. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Sep 30, 2014

    Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor continues to be a fun read, and a must have for Whovians. As despite it not being the Doctor's best outing, failing to maintain the criteria for an awesome one-shot, the presence of SERVEYOUinc certainly proves intriguing. Recommended. Read Full Review
