The Doctor is worried by the statistically significant number of recent alien visitations to Earth, and a chance comment from Ace leads him to the answer; the TARDIS is still infested with energy from the Mandragora Helix, which has been hiding away and growing in strength for years, and is now strong enough to draw the Doctor and other alien species to Earth for some reas ...more

A collection of shorter stories from the Doctor Who magazine. Like most anthologies it can be wildly uneven, but the good stuff more than makes up for the 'blah' stuff. Some clever sci-fi and nice use of Who history.

A Reasonable Collection the team behind the artwork did a great job and it holds up to works that would normal cost more. The writing is more varied in quality the structure of each story holds but some of the characterization is confused and the over use of certain phrases, that thickly blast past the line of effective rhetoric and head into the county of annoying and laughably stupid.

But all in all a reasonable collection. Fans of the seventh doctor will enjoy thoroughly or just doctor who fa

"Train-Flight" has great potential with its pairing of The Seventh Doctor and Sarah Jane, but turns out just to be an overly-slow bug hunt [4/10]. "Doctor Konkerer" is more fast paced, but has no depth to it [4/10]. "Fellow Travellers" gets points for being my Cartmel, but beyond that it's a well-written and well-drawn comic that makes interesting use of the form, even if the story is pretty light [7/10]. Paul Cornell's short story "Teenage Kicks!" is shallow, but is a nice preview of the maturi ...more

Decent run of comic strips from DWM. The fact that they originally ran in (I think?) 5-page installments means it's not possible to really develop the story as far as one might like, but it's an enjoyable read nonetheless. More to the point, the production values on this are astonishingly good, even two decades later; the new coloring is gorgeous, and with the credits stripped out from the beginning of each chapter, it's actually pretty hard to tell when the individual strips began and ended. If ...more

A nice collection of materials previously published in Doctor Who Magazine. Three really terrific stories, one featuring the Seventh Doctor in a story with Sarah Jane Smith and two more featuring the Seventh Doctor And Ace. The final story is a somewhat sequel to the Fourth Doctor TV story, The Masque of Mandragora.

A collection of good, fun little stories set during the Seventh Doctor's era, and featuring his trademark plotting, slightly dark machinations, and relationship with always awesome companion Ace. Very enjoyable.

A fairly solid set of Seventh Doctor comic stories from Doctor Who Magazine. The only complaint I have is the uncharacteristically feeble way the Doctor behaves towards the end of the titular story.

Uneven, short episodes from the 7th Doctor comics. The writing and art isn't bad necessarily, but does not have the space to develop a more mature and satisfying story.
