    DOCTOR WHO: THE NINTH DOCTOR ONGOING #1 is a great example in how comic books should be done. This is what I would call a "text book" example. Read Full Review

    Overall a good start to the series, brings the television show to the page with dynamic illustrations and fun character development. Has room for improvement as it fills out the characters, stories and the universe but is a great start. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Todd Young Apr 12, 2016

    It's a good start to the three issue arc, with the return of a familiar villain and more time with fan favorite companions Rose and Capt. Harkness. The spirit of the ninth Doctor is captured well, and newcomers to the Who universe will be able to jump in without much problem. For longtime fans it's more like additional episodes of the first series, with few surprises. Read Full Review

    The story is the charming muddle we've come to love and expect from Doctor Who: something about Time Wars and aliens and abducting impressionable young "Companions" and sonic screwdrivers. Who cares? We're along for the ride, which is always weirdly fun. I really did want to know why and how the Doctor was meeting his doppelganger, and the Reveal at the end left me rubbing my hands with glee (of course this glee was predicated on my prior knowledge of the series and its monsters, so if you're not acquainted with a few seasons of the TV show, you'll be left scratching your head).

    A very average start to a Doctor Who story with some meta exploration of fandom. Read Full Review

    This is what I expect from a Doctor Who comic, not an overly plastic surgery riddled Rose Tyler and stilted and awkward voiced doctor. This series has the tone of its characters well in hand within moments, and builds on the existing storylines of the ninth (and my personal favorite) incarnation of the doctor. Things got a bit wonky, but its nothing our intrepid time travelers can't handle. The reveal at the end ties right into Nine's on-screen shenanigans, and I couldn't be happier. I loved hearing Rose say "timey wimey" it was just too perfect. I'm genuinely impressed by this Doctor Who story, and in a year without a Doctor (which sounds like a great Who story, if I do say so myself) I'll take all the wibbly wobbly timey wimey I can bear.
