Title: Doctor Who Series 1: Winter’s Dawn, Season’s End

Authors: Tony Lee, Matthew Dow Smith, Al Davison, Blair Shedd, and Kelly Yates

I received this book from the publisher in exchange for a review. 

4 stars

The blurb for this book says that it’s about “the last comic adventures of the 10th Doctor“. So I was very surprised when I started reading it and realized that it’s actually about the 11th and the Ponds. I love those characters, so it’s okay… but how did that a mistake like that happen?

The Hypothetical Gentleman

The art is really good, except Rory looked a bit weird a couple of times. But the art is still superior to other Doctor Who comics I’ve seen. It’s Rory and Amy’s anniversary, but Amy is still having doubts about Melody. She keeps thinking how things could have worked out differently.

The dialogue was very good. I could imagine the actors saying all of it. The story is interesting, but I have issues with the villain. I guess he was supposed to be creepy, but I just didn’t feel it.

The Doctor and the Nurse

The Doctor and Rory are lost. It all started when they got into a fight after escaping from a very dangerous planet. Amy is sick of it, so she decides that the two of them need some bonding time without her around. Of course they all get in trouble. There are lots of funny situations here. The story is a lot more entertaining than the first one. When I read the title, I didn’t even think that the ‘Nurse’ might be referring to Rory.

While the second story is better, the art is a lot worse. The characters are drawn really badly. They look a little bit like the actors, but that all. So the art ruins the whole experience.

I read the review copy, that’s why I only reviewed two stories. But there should be more stories in the final copy.
