The latest installment of Titan Comics’ UK anthology series is out today – and this issue is a 100-page bumper special!
The Doctor Who Comic UK #07 stars Doctors Ten, Eleven, and Twelve in three separate adventures. Peter Capaldi’s Twelfth Doctor is back on Earth in the second part of The Fractures:
In our world, UNIT scientist Paul Foster was killed in a car crash, while his family survived – in his, it was his wife and daughters that perished. Now, this alternate Paul Foster has made the leap through the Void to reunite with his family. But he doesn’t belong in this dimension, and a menacing group of body-hopping entities known as the Fractures are hunting Foster to stop reality from rupturing!
Can the Doctor save the universe AND bring a family back together – or will sacrifices have to be made?
Meanwhile, the Tenth Doctor and Gabby Gonzalez are battling Weeping Angels – during the First World War!
The Doctor and Gabby are trapped in the chaos of World War One, where trench foot is the least of their worries. With the TARDIS seemingly scattered across No Man’s Land and the Sonic Screwdriver in the hands of the military, the Doctor and Gabby must now convince the skeptical Captain Fairbairn that they are not spies – or face the firing squad! Far from the trip to paradise Gabby was hoping for, they’re stuck in a desolate wasteland where even the statues are deadly. Can the Time Lord’s new companion make it out alive?
In our review of the original American release of this comic, we were more than pleased with The Weeping Angels of Mons:
“It’s engaging and exciting. It makes you think while moving those statues on, figuratively speaking.
“Actually, you can see it as a TV episode. More than that – I’d love to see this on the idiot’s lantern!”
And we get a double-dose of the Eleventh Doctor, Alice Obiefune, Jones, and ARC, as this comic collects together The Eternal Dogfight and The Infinite Astronaut:
Alice, Jones and ARC have joined the Doctor aboard the TARDIS. During a time-twisting adventure where the flow of time reversed inside the vortex, the Doctor succeeded in preventing Jones’ death and the destruction of an entire planet.
Now Alice must return to London and confront the challenges of everyday life. With her landlord in the process of evicting her, and as she mourns the loss of her mother, the last thing she needs is to face a sky full of alien fighter pilots. But travels with the Doctor never do turn out quite as you’d expect…
In our review of the initial Eternal Dogfight story, we were particularly impressed with how the Eleventh Doctor is portrayed:
“Writer Rob Williams’ strongest area, for me, is his dialogue. I can often hear Matt Smith’s voice in the Doctor’s word balloons, which probably isn’t as easy to achieve as it seems. Williams also wrote an inspired sequence in this issue involving the Doctor and Co. jet-packing their way around the Amstrons’ spaceship. It’s kind of like The Rocketeer in space.”
What’s more, the UK iteration of the comic offers you the chance to win one of fourteen sets of three Wave 4 Doctor Who Figures!
Doctor Who Comic UK #7 is out now, priced £4.99, and available from most newsagents and supermarkets.
