The ultimate celebration of Doctor Who – a perfect introduction for new fans and a brilliant tribute for long-time Whovians!
When you die, your life flashes before your eyes – and the Doctor’s had a lot of lives! The Thirteenth Doctor relives unseen adventures from all her past selves!
This story takes place during the Twelfth Doctor’s regeneration into the Thirteenth Doctor. He thinks back on each of his different regenerations as the Doctor. It’s a great recap of the entire series.
I loved that each version of the Doctor was illustrated by a different person. They all had distinct personalities, so they were all illustrated differently in this book. Some of the ones that were more quirky, like the Fourth Doctor, had more of a cartoon drawing, while more serious characters, like the Ninth Doctor, has more realistic graphics. My favourite illustrations were of the new Thirteenth Doctor, because they were so realistic that they looked like photographs of her!
I’m not as familiar with the Doctors from the original series, but I could recognize some of the characters. I wish there were more of my favourite characters in the recent Doctor stories. For the Tenth and Eleventh Doctors, other characters were in their stories who I think are from their comic series. I wish there were more recognizable companions with those Doctors.
This is a great introduction to the new Doctor!
