    Grant Morrison writing Who! This should be excellent, right? Well...not quite. 'The World Shapers' is exactly the sort of 'So X was really Y all along! And here's what happened to Z!' mini-epic which new writers are advised to avoid when they first get hold of a property, because it comes across like fanfic. And Morrison was, at this point, a new writer in all senses - this is before even Zenith, around the time he was doing Zoids. The other two stories are better, because smaller, with the TARD Grant Morrison writing Who! This should be excellent, right? Well...not quite.

The other two stories are better, because smaller, with the TARDIS tour 'Changes' in particular very charming in places, even if Peri does look more like Sarah-Jane. And then you've got some stories by Steves Moore and Parkhouse with Dave Gibbons art which, while obviously very pretty in places, never quite feel like Doctor Who.

    I colored this so I may be a bit biased. :)

    My favorite story in this volume was "The World Shapers", a story featuring the 6th Doctor, Frobisher, and Peri, reunited with Jamie McCrimmon, that puts a new twist on the origins of the Cybermen. It's a story that ought to be fanwanky, but isn't. The rest of the volume is taken up by another 6th Doctor story, a 7th Doctor story, and a number of fairly short 4th Doctor tales. Probably the most memorable of these is an uncharacteristically bleak story of the Doctor encountering a post-apocalypti My favorite story in this volume was "The World Shapers", a story featuring the 6th Doctor, Frobisher, and Peri, reunited with Jamie McCrimmon, that puts a new twist on the origins of the Cybermen.

Probably the most memorable of these is an uncharacteristically bleak story of the Doctor encountering a post-apocalyptic future city inhabited by cannibals. On the whole, I enjoyed the 6th Doctor, Frobisher, and Peri stuff the most. I gather that there are more comics stories featuring that team - I'll have to track them down.

    I'm not sure if I should give this 3 or 4 stars. The doctor who comics are never great stories or characterisation but they can be fun. I got this one cause it was on sale and interested to see the Steve Moore stories. The Grant Morrison stories were ok. It was nice to finally be able to see Frobisher. I must admit I didn't really like what he did with Jamie though! I'm not sure how Marinus became Mondas either! But the story with Sylvester's doctor was nice. The Steve Moore Tom Baker stories we I'm not sure if I should give this 3 or 4 stars. The doctor who comics are never great stories or characterisation but they can be fun.

The Steve Moore Tom Baker stories were silly and fun, Olympian gods and Robot librarians and people who worshipped benevolent spiders. The last few stories were a bit odd Tom Baker in distopian futures just felt a bit strange, still I'm glad I got it though I'm not sure I'll be rushing out and buying anyone of these.

    These old comics from the Doctor Who magazine were always fun in their imagination-freeing medium, and big screen adventure frequently mixed with fanboy silliness. The Grant Morrison stories may disappoint Morrison fans but they rise above the average Dr. Who comics fair and feature some of the better supporting characters and a good twist on an old enemy. The rest is mediocre and this collection will ultimately leave non-fans scratching their heads and fans wishing they were watching the show's These old comics from the Doctor Who magazine were always fun in their imagination-freeing medium, and big screen adventure frequently mixed with fanboy silliness.
