The Third Doctor’s Earth-bound exile has been lifted. But before he can set out on new adventures, an alien invasion appears to threaten Earth! It’s the devious work of an old enemy, Salamander, a former dictator with a startling resemblance to the Second Doctor!

    While it may not be as witty or as action packed as the previous issues, Doctor Who: The Third Doctor #5 still stands as a confident thesis for the franchise's offbeat yet engaging style of storytelling, and is another strong showing from one of Titan's most consistently cool art teams. As a fan, I have to admit, it is sad seeing Paul Cornell leave the TARDIS and head for other characters and IPs. That said, I am glad to have gotten the stories I got from him and even more so that his last foray stayed true to both the content and tone of the Doctor Who that fans want. So long, Paul Cornell; thanks for all the fun, and for The Third Doctor #5. Read Full Review
