    Cold Day in Hell (130-133). I'm not convinced that this first story was meant to be about McCoy. It features the Doctor and Frobisher still angsting about Peri leaving, then Frobisher leaving himself. As such, it would have worked much better in continuity as a Colin Baker story set after Trial of a Time Lord. With that said, this is still a cool story because it has the Ice Warriors — even if we've seen most of the ideas before, like a group of Ice Warriors going rogue because they don't like p Cold Day in Hell (130-133). I'm not convinced that this first story was meant to be about McCoy. It features the Doctor and Frobisher still angsting about Peri leaving, then Frobisher leaving himself. As such, it would have worked much better in continuity as a Colin Baker story set after Trial of a Time Lord. With that said, this is still a cool story because it has the Ice Warriors — even if we've seen most of the ideas before, like a group of Ice Warriors going rogue because they don't like peace and them making a planet particularly cold. I also appreciated the continuity with the Galactic Federation, which continues right on into the next story [7/10]. Redemption! (134). The idea of a companion gone bad is a good one, but it's all a bit sudden and thus the story is pretty shallow [6/10]. The Crossroads of Time (135). A battle between the Doctor and Death's Head is a cool bit of fun, especially as it's a pivotal event in Death's Head's chronology. Unfortunately, the continuity of this story as a Doctor Who offering is awful with a "Time Warden" who watches the paths of time and the Doctor willing to try and kill Death's Head almost instantly [4/10]. Claws of the Klathi (136-138). What an entirely bizarre strip, with some convoluted and irrelevant backstory and a whole bit with aliens traveling as a freak show. I didn't find it very interesting, nor did I find this Seventh Doctor very dark, despite the author's claims to the contrary. The story did have some great Victorian setting, but that wasn't enough to make it good [5/10]. Culture Shock! (139). Grant Morrison's story is fun just because it imagines a totally weird SF idea [8/10]. Keepsake (140). This story is really shallow, but fun for how it shows the Doctor being both silly (like the early 7) and also manipulating someone into doing something for him (like the late 7) [6/10]. Planet of the Dead (141-142). So this story has old companions and old Doctors, introduced for the purpose of an anniversary, but used really, really shallowly. Despite that, it's fun, especially in the interactions between the Doctors, which is spot on. The relation to the history of the Whifferdils is fun too [7/10]. Echoes of the Morgor! (143-144). Nice to have Abnett writing a story. This one is as thin as most of the stories in this volume, but still offers up an interesting mystery that's fun to read. However the old memories imprinted on crystals feels very overused, especially since it appeared in the "Dragonsfire" episode right around the same time [6/10]. Overall, there’s not a lot that stands out here, but some of it was worth reading.

    This IDW book collects the earliest appearances by Sylvester McCoy in Doctor Who Magazine from 1987-88 with each adventure tastefully colorized by Charlie Kirchoff. There are a total of eight stories, with each ranging from 8-32 pages. The lead-off story, "A Cold Day in Hell" features the Seventh Doctor meeting up with the Ice Warriors on a paradise planet that's turned frigid. The story is also Frobisher's farewell.

There are a total of eight stories, with each ranging from 8-32 pages. The lead-off story, "A Cold Day in Hell" features the Seventh Doctor meeting up with the Ice Warriors on a paradise planet that's turned frigid. The story is also Frobisher's farewell. The continuity on the story is a bit wonky and it leaves me wondering whether this story was written with Colin Baker's sixth Doctor in mind. Another highlight is, "The Claws of the Klathi," which finds the Doctor uncovering a plot in Victorian England that tie into a series of unexplained burglaries. This story hits just the right spot with the Doctor in this era as that's almost always a winner. "Planet of the Dead," sees the Doctor landing on a planet where he runs into departed compansion and his former self. The story's okay, but the art is so much fun to look at. Finally, "Culture Shock," is a Grant Morrisson story that finds a discouraged doctor running into a sentient cell structure in need of his help. It's a very inventive story, that's pretty entertaining for being only pages. The only story I thought was bad was, "Crossroads of Time" when the Doctor rams into a giant metal monster in the Vortex and it's handled like a fender bender. This is a story that tries to be funny but really isn't and at the same time, the ending has the Doctor betraying his character. The rest of the stories are okay. Their decent enjoyable sci fi stories from an era when the Seventh Doctor was on the air and they were playing it safe. Overall, there's enough good Doctor Who comics in this one to make it worth a read.

    Collection of stories featuring the seventh doctor. Shows of his travels after Peri leaves. The best part was the return of the Ice Warriors. A well thought of and cohesive story.
