Grant Morrison writing Who! This should be excellent, right? Well...not quite. 'The World Shapers' is exactly the sort of 'So X was really Y all along! And here's what happened to Z!' mini-epic which new writers are advised to avoid when they first get hold of a property, because it comes across like fanfic. And Morrison was, at this point, a new writer in all senses - this is before even Zenith, around the time he was doing Zoids. The other two stories are better, because smaller, with the TARD ...more

My favorite story in this volume was "The World Shapers", a story featuring the 6th Doctor, Frobisher, and Peri, reunited with Jamie McCrimmon, that puts a new twist on the origins of the Cybermen. It's a story that ought to be fanwanky, but isn't.

The rest of the volume is taken up by another 6th Doctor story, a 7th Doctor story, and a number of fairly short 4th Doctor tales. Probably the most memorable of these is an uncharacteristically bleak story of the Doctor encountering a post-apocalypti
I'm not sure if I should give this 3 or 4 stars. The doctor who comics are never great stories or characterisation but they can be fun. I got this one cause it was on sale and interested to see the Steve Moore stories. The Grant Morrison stories were ok. It was nice to finally be able to see Frobisher. I must admit I didn't really like what he did with Jamie though! I'm not sure how Marinus became Mondas either! But the story with Sylvester's doctor was nice. The Steve Moore Tom Baker stories ...more

Shelves: scanned
These old comics from the Doctor Who magazine were always fun in their imagination-freeing medium, and big screen adventure frequently mixed with fanboy silliness. The Grant Morrison stories may disappoint Morrison fans but they rise above the average Dr. Who comics fair and feature some of the better supporting characters and a good twist on an old enemy. The rest is mediocre and this collection will ultimately leave non-fans scratching their heads and fans wishing they were watching the show's ...more
