    Scarf Doctor is the best Doctor! This volume has a couple of one-shots and longer tales. I like the cliffhangers between chapters!

    Most of the stories in this volume are lightweight, but fun, with my favorites being one where the Doctor and Sharon tangle with aliens in 16th century China, and a short piece where they travel to a "blank dimension" and engage in a battle of wills with an alien criminal. I was a bit disappointed in the story that produced the very striking cover image of the 4th Doctor giving himself a good punch to the head - it involves the Doctor going back in time and knocking himself out in order to preve Most of the stories in this volume are lightweight, but fun, with my favorites being one where the Doctor and Sharon tangle with aliens in 16th century China, and a short piece where they travel to a "blank dimension" and engage in a battle of wills with an alien criminal. I was a bit disappointed in the story that produced the very striking cover image of the 4th Doctor giving himself a good punch to the head - it involves the Doctor going back in time and knocking himself out in order to prevent himself from doing something that turned out to have bad consequences. There's a reason why Doctor Who has invented the Blinovitch Limitation effect, the Laws of Time, and other assorted technobabble to explain why this shouldn't be done: in storytelling terms, it's a cheap trick. That quibble aside, everything in this volume is at least good fun. Given that these stories were written in 1979, they feel surprisingly contemporary. It's hard for me to come up with specifics, but I get a distinct feeling that these comics influenced the tone and content of New Who more than is often acknowledged. Maybe it's just that this volume features werewolves, fighting monks, Daleks, and Sontarans, and has the Doctor travelling with a contemporary Londoner. (Though one distinctly retro touch is that when it's time for Sharon to leave, she stays behind to get married to someone she's just met. Pity.)

    The collection of fourth doctor comics was much better then volume 1. The Doctor continues to travel with Sharon, who he picked up at the end of volume 1. They travel to space colonies over run by werewolf like creatures and meet the Doctor's greatest enemy. Then we meet a space witch, who controls things simply by thinking of them. Next the Doctor and Sharon travel to ancient China and take on Sontarons. And finally we meet up with some of the Doctor's old friends and save them from a dream cre The collection of fourth doctor comics was much better then volume 1.

I especially enjoyed having K-9 in all of the adventures and Sharon was a spunky companion that is a great addition, and I was glad that Sharon's story ended on a high note, a rarity for the Doctor. This had much better characterization and story development then volume 1. I would even say that you could skip volume 1 and read volume 2 with out missing anything.

    This volume continues where the first volume left off (sort of). Again the material is pretty decent and quite enjoyable. There is a mix of straight science fiction and historical settings. Even The Doctor's main adversary, The Daleks, make an appearance in this book. There is one oddity though. For some reason the last chapter of the story line featuring The Meep is reprinted in this volume, despite having been reprinted in the previous volume.
