    The stories in this volume get a bit more epic. There's a kind of multi-story arc; the fate of all creation is frequently at stake; and the Time Lords feature frequently, along with a new character, their mysterious agent Shayde. This volume also includes the stories that added the small English country village of Stockbridge to the Doctor Who mythos. I previously only knew Stockbridge from the Big Finish audios in which it featured, so it's nice to see where it began. I think the character of S The stories in this volume get a bit more epic.

This volume also includes the stories that added the small English country village of Stockbridge to the Doctor Who mythos. I previously only knew Stockbridge from the Big Finish audios in which it featured, so it's nice to see where it began. I think the character of Shayde is rather interesting - it's quite intriguing to have a recurring figure who's not an enemy, nor straightforwardly an ally, but someone who has his own agenda. I hope we get to see more of him in future comics. I'm less keen on the regular appearances of the Time Lords, especially Rassilon. They function more as a plot device than anything else, and it doesn't do much to enhance their air of majesty or mystery. All these stories feature the Doctor traveling without a regular companion. Though this allows for some interesting surrogate companions, it has the unfortunate side-effect of making this a very male-centric slice of the Doctor Who universe. There's a really notable dearth of female characters. This probably passed without comment in the early 1980s when the comics were originally produced, but it jars now. Despite this, it's an enjoyable volume, and I'm looking forward to the next one. Which I hope will feature more Shayde, more Stockbridge, and, for God's sake, more girls!

    Junkyard Demon is a somewhat silly story that makes fun use of cybermen [7/10]. The Neutron Knights is an old, tired Arthurian science-fantasy that's not either very Doctor Who or very original [4/10]. I have mixed feelings about the Tides of Time. It's a nicely epic story, and the ending is great, but the appearance of Rassilon is clearly non-canon and the idea of an event synthesizer is sort of ridiculous [6/10]. Stars fell on Stockbridge is a nicely quiet story about the Doctor's interactions Junkyard Demon is a somewhat silly story that makes fun use of cybermen [7/10].

Stars fell on Stockbridge is a nicely quiet story about the Doctor's interactions with humanity [6/10]. The last story, "The Stockbridge Horror", has some neat and evocative imaginary, but the Gallifreyan elements again feel wrong and at the end everything doesn't make a lot of sense together [6/10]. As before, beautiful new color.

    This one was alright. I preferred the previous volume to this one. There were several story lines I just wanted to get over with, and it just so happens that those were the ones with 4+ parts to them. I do hope to continue reading the rest of the volumes out.

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