The conclusion to the miniseries for year one of the three Doctor Who ongoing series currently running at Titan Comics piles on the time travelling tricks. But by delivering a solid ending, one that even brought a tear to my eye, it manages to elevate a somewhat average series to better overall.

The strength of this issue lies in the writing, which has our three Doctors (and one surprise cameo) combatting the villain of the piece whilst trying to set up events so they will always play out this way in the future, saving the timeline and all of the Doctors in the process.

How satisfied you feel about the ending is...

I’ve said of this event in the past that I’ve been a bit let down by it, on how I felt it was, despite the scale, a very by the numbers event that probably wouldn’t be remembered that well. Those are rather bold statements to make. But with this issue, I can see how the series may balance out and read better when collected, forming a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts.

Which is perhaps given the villains are an almost hive mind species called the Voord...

Have the laws of time and space been broken? The three Doctors meet in 1920s Paris – impossible! The Doctors take the fight to the enemy… but have they already been outmaneuvered?

After #1’s ending had Reapers spewing into time and space, determined to cleanse all those affected by the Doctor induced paradox and the next two issues don’t slow down at all. If anything they accelerate, throwing alternate timelines, warring Doctors and battles into the mix, even if the companions have fallen back into the cliché of doing not much at all…

Sorry, I don’t know why I’m not quite connecting with this series and I seem to be down on it...

And so it came to pass, the collective Doctor Who fanbase unleashed a squeee loud enough to reverb through space and time…

…not that I’m exactly the odd one out! The idea of the current incarnation of the the Doctor (he of the grumpy eyebrows) meeting his two prior incarnations and the War Doctor is something that has certain parts of my brain doing dances of joy. For a first issue, the crossover delivers exactly what is expected of it and not much more. But what is there is still rather entertaining.

Paul Cornell continues to show that he may be one of the forem...
