Doctor Who: Dalek Universe 2 – Cycle of Destruction & The Trojan Dalek Review

The first Dalek Universe set was a big hit for myself and many others so Box 2 had a lot to live up to. Thankfully these first two episodes continue both a fun plot and the great cast and throw in a few twists for good measure. Let’s look at the first two thirds of the boxset then, shall we?

Doctor Who: The Gates of Hell Review

Out of the three “Out of Time” releases (which drives me crazy as the first story was just called “Out of Time” with no subtitle, so don’t try and retroactively add that as a series title!) this is the one I was least interested in only due to the fact that this pairing of “classic and new” Doctors had already been done, and in live action no less. Still, they do have the odd relationship of actually getting on, which most Doctor pairings don’t, so this story felt quite unique in that sense. Let’s take a look!

Doctor Who: Time Lord Victorious – Defender of the Daleks Review

You thought we were done with Time Lord Victorious? Not yet! Along with the DWM Ninth Doctor story yet to be released in GN format (so who knows when we’ll actually be done…), there was this story from Titan Comics that I thought I’d finally get round to reading as we have the only other TLV release up on the site this week. Defender of the Daleks is… Alright, I guess. It doesn’t really add anything to the overall narrative though… so it’s right at home! Let’s take a look…

Doctor Who: Time Lord Victorious – Echoes of Extinction Review

Hands up who remembers Time Lord Victorious? It was only a couple of months ago the multi-media event ended but already it seems like old hat, probably because at most it was good but often it was average, so it didn’t exactly have the big impact it promised. Well, anyway, Echoes of Extinction was delayed several months due to the old pandemic-ness and therefore has even LESS impact than if it made its original date. Oh well, let’s have a look…

Doctor Who: Dalek Universe 1 – The House of Kingdom Review

After an absolute stunner of an opening two parter we get a more traditional affair with “The House of Kingdom”. Bringing the focus in on Anya Kingdom and establishing some backstory for her is the core idea of the story and it does it well, plus who doesn’t want to hear David Tennant face off with the Mechanoids?! Let’s take a look!

Doctor Who: Dalek Universe 1 – Buying Time / The Wrong Woman Review

Dalek Universe kicks off proper with one hell of a two-parter by the always impressive John Dorney. To say the plot twists and turns would be an understatement, and to properly talk about how much I enjoyed this story I’ll have to stop here and wait until we get to the spoilerful review itself! SERIOUSLY DON’T READ THIS REVIEW IF YOU’RE PLANNING ON LISTENING TO IT LATER. … Let’s take a look!

Doctor Who: Time Lord Victorious – All Flesh is Grass Review

Here we have it, ignoring all the side-content this is technically the “main event” where everything Time Lord Victorious comes together, and I will at least give it credit in that it does tie everything together well and juggles all three Doctors with ease, making this one of the most Doctor-interactive multi-Doctor stories ever. What’s it like as a whole though? Was the pay-off worth the wait? Let’s find out!

Doctor Who: The Next Doctor Review

On first glance you may see the title, find out that this story contains someone pretending to be The Doctor and think it’s a rip-off of another story that appeared in the this marathon, but actually that’s the only thing the two have in common, and “The Next Doctor” is a great story in its own right. So let’s take a look at the last Tenth Doctor Christmas Special in this countdown (having already covered his actual last special some time ago…)

Doctor Who: Voyage of the Damned Review

Good old disaster movies, they’re… not my thing at all, but they do often get shown around Christmas, so the next Christmas Special being very much a Doctor Who version of that makes sense. It also has Kylie Minogue as a sort-of companion, which is pretty much all the advertising was leading into it, but hey-ho. It was a big deal! So let’s have a look at “Voyage of the Damned” and see if it holds up past the big guest!
