Re: PRISONERS OF TIME - News, Reviews, and Discussion

The final issue came out yesterday.

Eleven Doctors and an uncountable number of companions leap into battle against Adam, the Ainley Master, and the Autons.

What results is panel after panel of Doctors and companions, some getting a line of dialogue, some not. The resolution doesn't have a lot to do with the Doctors or the companions; the post-2005 Doctors and Rose, for obvious reasons, get the most facetime (because they know Adam), there's betrayal and counter-betrayal, and ultimately the story rests on Adam's decisions.

The final page is baffling. It's unearned. And, frankly, there really needs to be an across-the-board mindwipe of everyone, Rose especially.

On the plus side, we got an eleven Doctors story. On the minus side, it wasn't very good and I'm still not clear that the Tiptons have ever watched Doctor Who.
