It's time for the 13th incarnation of Doctor Who and, as usual, it won't be what's expected, but it will be exciting. Here, Dinnick (Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor) takes readers through a brief encounter of each of the previous Time Lords as the new Doctor is transformed. The journey spans a short history of each previous Doctor as all embark on a never-before-told story with their trusty companions. Aliens, Daleks, and even Captain Jack join the pages to make for a fast-paced thrill ride. Each vignette is illustrated in a different style with vivid colors adding to the overall appeal.
VERDICT Fans of the BBC TV show will delight in the new short stories of each Doctor, and while newcomers will be intrigued, they'll likely need a bit more background to get the full effect. Overall, highly enjoyable for any age group.
