Review: Dr Who the Eleventh Doctor issue #5

DOCTOR WHO: THE ELEVENTH DOCTOR #5

Review by: Mike Lacey

Issue number five of Titan Comic’s Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor series is the conclusion of a two issue story. The Doctor and his companion for this series Alice Obiefune, along with Jones, the newest member of the TARDIS crew, find themselves aboard a United System Research Base, facing the ARC experiment which has been claiming victims one by one, leaving them in a comatose state.

This issue pushes along the development of our characters quite nicely. Alice is quickly becoming a self reliant companion. She can definitely hold her own as she takes charge in the Doctor’s absence, taking charge as she manages to get herself and Jones out of a particularly sticky situation. The Doctor once again encounters August Hart, Chief Security Officer for SERVEYOUinc., even though it is only his first meeting with the Doctor from his perspective(Wibbly Wobbly Timey Wimey stuff). As well as the mysterious SERVEYOUinc. being further revealed as the main villain of this series thus far.

And just like an episode of Doctor Who, not everything is as it seems. This two part story was very reminiscent of the series five episode The Beast Below, which goes to illustrate just how similar in tone this series is in relation to the television show. Both of the writers for this series so far, Rob Williams and Al Ewing have an extremely good handle on the voice of the Eleventh Doctor. The stories that both Williams and Ewing have delivered in these first five issues very well could have fit right into Matt Smith’s run as the Doctor. Which is a testament to the book and bodes well for the future of this series from Titan Comics that I am very much looking forward to.

Score 8.0 out of 10
