DW: Time Lord Victorious – Enemy of my Enemy Review

Let’s take a look at the latest addition to the “Time Lord Victorious” story arc: The Enemy of my Enemy. So we saw… or read in “The Knight, The Fool and The Dead” that The Eighth Doctor arrived in the Dark Times on a Dalek ship to stop his future self, this story is how he got there…

DW: Time Lord Victorious – He Kills Me, He Kills Me Not Review

It’s time to begin the Eighth Doctor Audio Drama strand of Time Lord Victorious with “He Kills Me, He Kills Me Not”. Obviously on the fringes of the core story seen in last week’s book, this is more about The Doctor realising something is very wrong with time and meeting Brian the Ood Assassin for the first time. The rest of the story is fun, but full of bad accents… Does it hurt it overall? Let’s find out!

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: Time War Series 4 – Dreadshade and Restoration of the Daleks Review

Much to my relief we return to the second half of the fourth Time War box set to find it doesn’t let the side down after a fantastic first half. While neither Dreadshade or Restoration of the Daleks are as great and well thought out as Palindrome, they do up the war stakes and deliver some great moments, including a hell of an unexpected final scene! Let’s take a look…

DW: Time War Series 4 – Palindrome Review

The fourth and currently final Eighth Doctor Time War set is here, and we start off with a two-part close inspection of Davros and his potential timelines, as well as generally featuring a lot of other general time shenanigans. Luckily it was written by John Dorney, so what could’ve easily been a mess was actually interesting and really fun to follow. Want to know more? Read on!

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!

Doctor Who: Stranded 1 – Must-See TV & Divine Intervention Review

DW Stranded 1 Part 2

With the cast and setting firmly established, it’s time to start teasing a longer narrative for the story arc (beyond being “stranded” obviously!) while still having fun with the new regulars. On both these counts the second half of Stranded 1 does exactly that, making for fun stories that also tease more to come. Want more info? Read on!
