When last we left The Doctor and his companions The Doctor was following a trail to what he thought was a Timelord child, but was instead a deadly weapon made by the Timelords themselves during the Time War. With the Orphaned Hour about to go critical, the Tardis absorbed the weapon into its core…but it didn’t work, and started to pull the ship apart. The sapling, in an attempt to save the ship, sprouted roots in a desperate act to keep it together. Now this is where we find ourselves in Doctor Who The Eleventh Doctor #12! In this episode, titled Hungry Thirsty Roots (part one of two) The Doctor is nowhere to be found, and all Alice can do is scream as she encounters a terrifying alien aboard the Tardis. She remembers the alien, but how could she forget him? He’s not after her at all; The Doctor is its prey! What follows could mean the end of everything!
Ivan Rodriguez, JB Bastos & Luiz Campello team up on the art chores for this issue and so a bang up job. Just the facial expressions alone I’d give them an A+. They really do capture the essence of the show and bring it to life in the pages of this book. Well done one and all! I have nothing but positive things to say about their art in this book.
Alex Paknadel & Rob Williams team up to write this “episode” of Doctor Who and I thoroughly enjoyed this issue. The story was well paced and had a great flow throughout the book. Really well done gentlemen. You have me looking forward to the second part of this story arc.
Doctor Who has always been a favorite of mine. I grew up seeing the Tom Baker version on a local PBS station here in Boston WGBH. So quite a few years ago when they brought the series back, I just couldn’t get enough. Any chance I get to watch – or READ – a new episode I look forward to it, and Titan hasn’t disappointed me thus far. I love this book…with that being said get to your Local Comic Shop and get your Doctor Who fix today!
