Doctor Who: Four Doctors by Paul Cornell, illustrated by Neil Edwards

Doctor Who: Four Doctors Doctor Who: Four Doctors by Paul Cornell
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I think this is Titan Books first big event series, and it's cool because it's a multi-Doctor story, which is always fun. Having just read Paul Cornell's Witches of Lychford], I wasn't sure what to expect with him handling a comic series but had high hopes. Unfortunately, this didn't quite live up to those hopes. I think that falls more on me than anything else, as I haven't kept up to date with the main series for 10, 11, & 12, so I wasn't as familiar with what was going on with their respective characters. Overall tho, the story is still a little on the jumbled side, and part of me really wishes that this would have been something that could have been filmed as a special rather than have it in comic form, as I think this story would have held up much better on the TV.

Either way, we've got 10, 11, & 12, all together for the first time; we've got paradoxes, the Time War, new monsters, and a new villain that I wasn't quite expecting, along with several nods to some of each of the Doctor's larger storylines. I think had I been more up to date on each of the various series, I would have actually enjoyed this way more, so if you've been reading the various comic series and are a fan, I'd highly recommend this volume.
