Oh, where do I start? Well, I picked this one up because I love Doctor Who and I love graphic novels. Plus it stars the Eleventh Doctor, so why not? I'm also a big fan of Tony Lee's work, so it was bound to be good, right? Yeah, not really...

I start reading the first story, "Space Squid," and a few pages in we are introduced to Commander KATIC and Major FILLION. My first thought is, huh... someone's a "Castle" fan. Slightly annoyed that 1) Lee couldn't be bothered to create original character na...more
Natasha and I have been really enjoying these. Kevin is now my favorite character. I recommend the graphic novels and the only associated novel I've so far read, Doctor Who: Plague of the Cybermen, as well as the show itself and the vigorous fandom of Twitter as a good shared-family sort of interest. [Veronica loves the show, but prefers her reading more contemporary and realistic]. The graphic novels are providing a good way for me to keep in parallel with Natasha, even though I'm mostly not re...more

I was tricked, this book has a cool cover but is filled with mediocre stories.

The first story, Space Squid started out very promising! The reader is given a montage of adventures featuring the newly acquired companion Kevin, a T-Rex robot (see Doctor Who II Volume 2: When Worlds Collide). However, the rest of the story is rushed and a feels like it was lazily put together.

Body Snatched Is the next story, and it is the longest; told over 2 issues. This story definitely had the most pot...more

It's Doctor Who, of course I liked it.
This is six “short stories” about the Eleventh Doctor told as graphic novels, some have better stories than others, some have jarring art. “Space Squid” has a robot t- rex traveling with Rory, Amy and the Doctor, named Kevin. “Body Snatched” has the Doctor’s and Amy’s personalities switched and this is one whose art I don’t like. “Silent Knight” is a nearly wordless adventure where the Doctor and Santa help each other out.

“Space Squid” is fun mostly for its inclusion of Kevin, but otherwise is pretty forgettable [6/10]. “Body Switched” feels equally light, with its main strength being the body switching premise, which is never used to particularly great effect [6/10]. “Silent Knight” is totally shallow but fun & funny; it’s actually a comic without words done well, which is pretty rare [7/10]. Flakov’s “Run, Doctor, Run” is unfortunately even more shallow, so that there’s nothing to it [5/10]. The last two st...more
The third installment was wonderful, full of awesome stories. The first is "Space Squid" which is about, well, a giant space squid. Team TARDIS has picked up a new companion too...a robotic T-Rex named Kevin. The other stories are "Body Snatched" in which there is some pretty crazy/funny body switching, "Silent Knight" a short one with no dialogue about the Doctor saving Christmas, "Run, Doctor, Run" where the Doctor meets a race of gravitational shifters (think M.C. Escher), "Down to Earth" abo...more
Interessante, ma non è altro che un'antologia di storie brevi non collegate tra loro

I absolutely love the "Kevin" story. So much fun! Dinosaurs hooray!

Excellent collection of 6 additional Doctor Who adventures in graphic novel format, all taking place with Doctor #11, Amy Pond, & Rory. My personal favorite moments were when Amy & The Doctor switch bodies, and when Amy raises an army to defeat evil using only a spork! :)
The largest portion of the book, the story illustrated by Michael Dow Smith is terrific. He's a wonderful artist, very Mike Mignola-esque. And that story is just as good as you'd see on TV. The other stories are forgettable fluff.
Who plus nerd-culture references (Castle, Portal, Escher) AND the coolest robot T-Rex named Kevin that you'll ever meet.
A robotic dinosaur companion called Kevin and a Doctor-Amy body swap. What's not to like.
