Doctor Who: The Eighth Doctor #1 (Titan Comics)

George Mann (w) Emma Vieceli (a)

Titan comics have launched their fourth on-going Doctor Who title, this time featuring the adventures of the "missing Doctor" played by Paul McGann who made just the one episode/film and only made one further appearance in a "prequel" to the Time Wars storyline on BBC's "Red Button" channel.

Broadcasting history can't be changed but the adventure of the eight Doctor can now be told in comic book form, though it has to be said the writers have taken into account the numerous audio adventures made by Big Finish which were sold on CD and some broadcast on BBC Radio7/Radio 4 Extra.

This story is a omplete "one off" introduction for new readers and introduces a new companion Josephine Day who the Doctor finds squatting in his cottage (who knew he had one?).

Trouble is that forces are at work that brings her imaginative paintings to life threatening the locals.

Is the Doctor to blame?

A worthwhile addition to Titan Comics line. And remember although primarily aimed at the American market through Diamond distributors this is a very British company.

A worthy start and is now on my "pull list" at 30th Century comics.
