    SciFiPulse - Ian Cullen Jan 6, 2020

    Overall. I really enjoyed this first issue of 2020, which is basically issue one of volume two of 13s comic book adventures. Houser continues to write the 13th Doctor better than she is written in the television series, but for how long remains to be seen. Given that the new series recently started and seemed to have shown a little improvement over last year's poor showing. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Jay Hill Jan 9, 2020

    This is comic is superb on many levels. The art is amazing and the writing is perfectly "Who". But the magic is in what they've taken from the history of the show and brought into this book to make fresh and new. Read Full Review

    Clever writing and wonderful artwork make this Multi-Doctor story entertaining and engaging. It's easily accessible which is important for this kind of story but that doesn't diminish any of the brilliance gone into it's creation. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge Jan 13, 2020

    Though saddled with a semi-confusing numbering Doctor Who: The Thirteenth Doctor #2.1 is a solid jumping on point for new readers and another wonderful showing from the Titan Comics' ongoing creative team. Delivering a potentially great story stocked with good characterizations, this new issue looks to bring back the timey-wimey charms of a classic era multi-Doctor story, but with all the bells and whistles of the modern TV era. The time vortex will tell if it's a true success, but for now, The Thirteenth Doctor #2.1 is a good start. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Derrick Pittman Jan 10, 2020

    Although not a lot goes on in this issue, the tone is set and issues to follow should make for an interesting adventure for The Tenth Doctor, Thirteenth Doctor, and their companions. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Jan 8, 2020

    I have never really bought into the comic adventures of the Doctor, not when he was a Marvel book for a while or when he had his own monthly magazine out in the 80's (the Peter Davison years). I don't know why that would be the case. Intellectually I know that the comic can show more aliens or special effects than the show, but there seems something special about watching Doctor Who. So, even though this book is not going to replace or even be a welcome addition to the show for me , I have to applaud those involved for keeping their faith and producing a comic that maintains the current incarnations feel and vibe.
