The second collection of the sell-out smash new Tenth Doctor series, from award-winning writer Robbie Morrison (Spider-Man, Drowntown, Nikolai Dante) and Daniel Indro (Sherlock Holmes, Green Hornet), sends the Doctor and new companion Gabriella Gonzalez hurtling back into the past – and into the trenches of World War One!
Bombed by the German artillery, arrested as spies by the British, Gabby and the Doctor soon learn that there’s something even worse moving in the gas and wreathes of smoke out in No Man’s Land… stone statues who move only when you’re not looking at them! The Weeping Angels have come to feed on the futures of young soldiers — in their hundreds of thousands!
It’s an unmissable historical epic!
Cover by comics superstar Tommy Lee Edwards (TURF, 1985)!
Collects Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor #6-10.
The Weeping Angels are one of my favourite creatures from Doctor Who. They are statues of angels, which “kill” their victims by sending them back in time so they lose all their loved ones and the life they know. The only way to stop them is to look at them, which means not blinking.
The Weeping Angels target the World War One battlefield in this story because they can “feed” on many people all at once. The story is plausible, since so many people went missing and were never seen again during the war. This graphic novel even shows the lives that some of the soldiers lived after being sent back to the previous century.
I loved this book! The Angels were so creepy. There was a lot of historical significance since it took place during World War One. Gabby, the Doctor’s companion, wasn’t on the TV show, but she’s a great character in the graphic novels. This could also be read as a standalone story, if you haven’t read the first graphic novel in the series.
I love the Doctor Who comics! I highly recommend them for fans of the show!
