Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor Archive Omnibus 3
In this mega-collection of stories from the tenure of the Tenth Doctor, set between Planet of the Dead and The Waters of Mars, The Doctor battles one of his most insidious foes ever. The Advocate seeks to both destroy him and replace him by turning one of his companions against him and outmaneuvering him at every turn. But the Doctor finds an unswerving ally in Emily Winter, an actress-turned-adventurer who is prophecied to both live and die. But what does that mean? And just how long is The Advocate’s long game?
This collection features one of the most labyrinthine revenge plots in DW history — and that’s saying something — only to turn out to be a few cogs in an even bigger plot down the line. This is Moffat-level complexity and madness orchestrated around Ten instead of Eleven, but it somehow all comes together to the reader’s grand satisfaction.
Emily proves to be a worthy companion and Matthew as the conflicted also-ran is written with depth and heart. Only The Advocate falls into cartoonish villainy where she should instead rise above. This is Doctor Who done beautifully, taking full advantage of the graphic novel medium and spinning some proper universe-spanning yarns.
