DW: Mistress of Chaos Review

It’s time to cover the fourth, final and titular story in the “Mistress of Chaos” collected release… “Mistress of Chaos”! The story covers quite a bit of ground and is highly connected to the first two stories of this graphic novel, making it feel close to the old Eighth Doctor “story arc in a graphic novel” format, though admittedly not anywhere near the heights of those… which few are, to be fair! So how does Mistress of Chaos stand on its own? Let’s find out!

DW: The Power of the Mobox Review

The third of the four stories from “Mistress of Chaos” funnily enough features the Mobox, who made two major appearances in the past, both during the Eighth Doctor DWM run, the same run I’m currently covering on-and-off here at the moment! After Josiah Dogbolter’s daughter appearing in the first story it’s odd to see two examples of DWM bringing back their continuity so close together, given they normally just save it for big occasions. Is it any good, though? That’s the more relevant question!

DW: The Warmonger Review

We’re due to resume our look at the Eighth Doctor DWM comics, but first there’s a new collected comics Graphic Novel release to cover in “Mistress of Chaos”, containing the first Thirteenth Doctor comics no less. “The Warmonger” kicks of this new era with an interesting concept and the return of a DWM villain, erm, sort of. So let’s take a look!

DW: A Life of Matter and Death & By Hook or By Crook Review

It’s time to finish the comic stories featured in the Eighth Doctor’s first Graphic Novel compilation and look at two short stories that actually released either side of “Fire and Brimstone”, but I guess for the sake of smoother storytelling were bundled together at the end of the book. The first is a celebration of the DWM continuity for the 250th issue, and the second is a harmless single-issue story. Not a lot to cover, but I wasn’t going to leave them out! Let’s take a look…

DW: Wormwood Review

Wormwood is technically the first “big finale” story for the Eighth Doctor’s comics run as well as acting as the end to the Threshold storyline. Kicking off with the “Ninth Doctor” played by Nicholas Briggs (well, using his image, I should say) and only getting more crazy, let’s see how this story reaches its conclusion, shall we?

DW: Tooth and Claw (Comic) Reivew

In the first of many things from the Eighth Doctor DWM comic run that will make you think of Russell T. Davies, Tooth and Claw the comic sees not only mythical creatures (though more like vampires than werewolves) but also sees the debut of Fey Truscott-Sade, a character that would go on to appear a fair few times across the magazine’s history. Let’s take a look, shall we?

DW: The Keep / Fire and Brimstone Review

It’s fitting that the first Eighth Doctor DWM comic story after the already-covered Endgame is one that features the Threshold, given it was finally reading Ground Zero that made me decide to cover them in between the Lost Stories. What I’d forgotten about though was the inclusion of The Daleks, who I’d only remembered appearing in these Eighth Doctor strips when they become colour. Do all these elements (and more!) make a cohesive story? Let’s find out!

New irregular Doctor Who Marathon in-coming!

DW Announcement

Small update: Now the Titan Comics coverage has come to an end (well, for now, I’ll get to the more recent ones soon) I couldn’t decide between the Big Finish Lost Stories range and the DWM Eighth Doctor comics in terms of older Doctor Who stuff to cover, so I’ve decided to do both! Yes, over the coming months you’ll see either a Lost Story or a DWM Eighth Doctor comic review pop up from time to time, never enough to dominate the blog, and always taking a back seat to newly released Who, but they’ll be there, and in this order:
