it was the way too good for a free DW comic book but when it is about DW, I am the one always looking for tasty gourmet stories about time and space. But it was so deluted because it is imposibble to make four stories in 23 pages taste like more.

I thought this was better than the other Doctor Who Comic book I've read. It captured the Doctors' characters brilliantly and there were some witty one-liners.
The Twelfth Doctor story gets 5 stars from me because of Osgood who was awesome.
The story with Eleven was confusing but in a good way. I'm still thinking about it now. (view spoiler).
Unfortunately, the Tenth Doctor's comic was the worst of the bunch

Another collection of short Doctor Who comic stories. This instalment was better than the previous one and included Doctors 9, 10, 11 & 12.

Twelve Meh. I didn't really get the story or Twelve as a Doctor.
Eleven I'm not even sure this was as story?? I left off at the end of this story and when I picked it up again, I'd forgotten I'd read it, so that's not a good sign.
Ten The concept of the TARDIS being alive is interesting, but I don't like how they keep introducing new companions for Ten (Gabby and Cindy). They're too similar and have no real characterization.
Nine By far the best. Reads kind of like an actual episode. I liked that

I prefer companions I know (which means those in the tv show), especially when it comes to 10, but the stories weren’t bad. Just a bit rushed and not thought through (like using the reality shifting helmet for something good).

4 fun stories that chracterizes each of the doctors rather well. My favourite one was the last one, but probably because it was about number Nine. And Rose and Jack.

I love Doctor Who so much!!
I loved to see the short stories for the four doctors. It's so different from the TV Show (the stories), but the essence is the same. I miss the TV Show now.

Free comics are great! It was interesting to familiarize myself with another Doctor Who media. I started to really miss all the Doctors when I read this, I could hear their voices in my head and see their grins right in front of me. However, a few pages per story is usually not enough to make it a strong one, and in these the best part was not the plots (that were sometimes inventive but the day was always saved far too easily) but the banter of the Doctors. Because I have never read DW comics ...more

While this collection starts off weak with a fairly ham-fisted (and badly drawn) Twelfth Doctor & Osgood story, it picks up the pace soon after. The Eleventh Doctor and Alice get to spend time with Abslom Daak, Dalek Killer, in a story that very cunningly explores the characters' morality and their manipulative natures. Cindy and Gabby explore the TARDIS during the book's third chapter, and because this was my first Cindy comic, I really appreciate how her entire character just immediately ...more

I’ve read many other doctor who comics and this one wasn’t as good as the rest. It was good for 29 pages I guess, but it wasn’t too spectacular or anything. I found the ninth doctor’s story most entertaining, but the story for ten and eleven confused me. I guess it was good considering I got it for free and it was my first time reading a comic on iBooks.

It had 4 different stories in a short amount of time which kept my brain very interested. 26 pages isn't really bad if you want something short to read and you're bored to death.
Now I want to read more Doctor Who comics!

I didn't necessarily care for the last story, it was on the boring side a little. My favorite was the one about the "ghost".

Fun reads

The Doctors adventures are always fun and entertaining to read about! I like meeting some of the newer companions that weren’t in the show.

Always love it

What's not to love with four Doctors? The more the merrier people! Wouldn't mind Captain Jack's face on the moon at all.

Its ok

The short stories worked well. If they had been longer I would have lost interest. Good starter comic to introduce the Doctor.

This is a great book to read because it is free and includes good content such as planet graffiti or a robotic monster. But it cold be more than just 24 pages .

Magnificent read!

Enjoy a great afternoon with fun characters and creative stories. Nice flow with an easy to follow art board . lovely work. Enjoy!

Four short comic book stories that featured the last four incarnations of Doctor Who (one per story). The big difference between the comics and the TV version is that the Doctor will sometimes have companions in the comics that he never had on TV.

The stories are fun but short. This is a nice preview of the kind of stories that you get in the regular comics. This was the free giveaway for Comic Book Day 2016.

What is better then a free comic?
A free comic that is awesome! And this was most definitely awesome.

With new adventures from the Doctors 12, 11, 10 & 9, it was a super fun read.
I am so chuffed I came across it on amazon, still free I might add.
I can see myself reading it again when I need a quick pick me up.

FIVE "I will always love you #10 and keep on keeping on you scallywag #12" STARS.

Good art and a collection of surprisingly entertaining little stories make this 2016 Free Comic Book Day issue of Doctor Who quite a treat. Interestingly enough, the ninth, tenth, eleventh and twelfth incarnations of the Doctor appear in reverse order, and the quality of the art actually improves as we go back in the wibbly wobbly, timey wimey timeline. This is one free comic book that is well worth the read.

A good addition to the FCBD collection

I'm trying to get into Dr Who a bit more and this comic was brilliant in doing so. It was well illustrated and had 4 great, well written short stories in, involving 4 different doctors.

This defiantly is great for a free comic. It's a good way to introduce the comic book realm of Doctor Who. Plus it has 4 different Doctor Regenerations!

I kind of want to read everything doctor who now... greaaaaat. And I can't even watch it anymore. *cries*

Great Art Work

Great Art work and the short stories remind me of the television series. If you enjoy the TV show then you are sure to enjoy this free comic book.
