I picked this up on a whim from the library, mostly because it was by artist John Ridgway. I'm not a huge fan of his very distinctive black and white work, but he has done a lot of really good stuff for 2000AD in the past, so I was curious to see what he could do with some Doctor Who material. For the most part he does quite a good job. His portrayal of the Sixth Doctor and Peri is very well done, they are instantly recognisable. His work is very crisp and clean here, and benefits fro
A collection of stories that ran in several issues of Doctor Who Magazine, this book starts out with the introduction of a new companion. A shape shifting alien, that for personal reasons (never explained)takes on the appearance of a penguin and goes by the name of Frobisher. Seeing the Doctor travel around with a talking penguin is rather silly. I kind of liked Frobisher's original alien form and he never does use his shape shifting abilities after taking the penguin form. I guess this was done ...more

Previous volumes in this series - the Tom Baker and Peter Davison ones - hit me like hammer blows from the past, but this first Colin Baker collection is even better: like the Paul McGann volumes this was all brand new to me. Before I get onto saying why it was brilliant, I should cover the two things that are slightly annoying about it. Like all of these Doctor Who books from Panini it has the words "Graphic Novel" on the front cover, when it patently isn't. A graphic novel is a lengthy comic b ...more

Reprinted from Doctor Who Magazine #88-#107, Voyager contains the adventures of the Sixth Doctor and his alien companion Frobisher, a shape-changing alien Whifferdill who prefers to look like a penguin, all illustrated by John Ridgway who gets a two-page interview at the start. The first half of the book has stories by Steve Backhouse, which are visionary and surreal and take the Doctor to strange places in inner and outer space, swirling around the sinister magician Astralabus, but including of ...more
Shame that Colin Baker's Doctor never got a TV episode as good as some of the comics/novels featuring his Doctor. I liked the sixth Doctor a lot, but he was unfortunately caught in a bad period of the shows history and got a bit of a raw deal.

This graphic novel is a wild story that walks the border between sci-fi and fantasy, as the sixth Doctor and his sidekick, Forbisher the talking penguin, is caught up in the plots of two cosmic beings, an eccentric thief/inventor that may or may not be a re

Surprisingly good graphic novel/newspaper comic strip collection. The Sixth Doctor stars in this collection of stories that introduce his shape-shifting companion Frobisher and sets the Doctor on a journey where he doubts his own perceptions at every turn. I'm not the biggest Colin Baker fan, since he was never really allowed to develop his character properly on the TV show, but I enjoyed these stories immensely!

Poetic, surreal, punchy, and funny. Parkhouse's writing really elevates this material, although there is a letdown towards the end. It needed a stronger denoument that was less abstract. But Frobisher, a character I was deeply skeptical about, won me over. And I appreciate the ambition of the whole creative team on this one, pushing a story past the traditional confines of a Doctor Who script.
Some of the stories are brilliant and atmospheric. Others are forgettable. Frobisher shines, and can still change shape. Peri really isnt in it much, so don't buy it for her comic adventures.
