Comics Review: Doctor Who Skyjacks and more
Comics Review: Doctor Who: Skyjacks Vol. 3 by various
Review by: Prof. Jenn
This is a fun TARDIS-dimension-loop story which are enjoyable because of how timey-wimey they get. This is an 11th Doctor/Clara story, and we get more about the Time War, information and fun images re: the various rooms in the TARDIS, and get to hobnob with some valiant WWII soldiery. There are various references to the previous Hypothetical Gentleman storyline, but not so much they’ll get in your way if you’ve missed it.
There’s an extra, unrelated story attached to this volume called “In-Fez-Station”, which is an 11th Doctor/Amy & Rory tale which involves the Slitheen, and mind-controlling fezes. Yes, you heard me, the fezes are evil. Or at least tools for such. Really bouncy and light-hearted fun after the epic, timey-wimey feel of the longer Skyjacks story.
Bottom Line: recommended, especially for fans of the 11th Doctor.
Bonus Review: Dead Man’s Hand #3 by various
Now I haven’t had the pleasure of catching the first two in the Dead Man’s Hand story, so admittedly I was a tetch lost re: who’s who and what’s happening. What I can say is that this is a fun romp in the Wild West with a meta twist, referencing Westerns all over the place. It does get a tad long-winded, as all the Doctors explain his philosophy to Sondrah. But oo, look: the War Doctor actually makes an appearance!
Bottom Line: definitely only if you’ve been following the story till now. But I do recommend it.
