Doctor Who The Thirteenth Doctor Volume 2
The Thirteenth Doctor and her companions take a trip into the past, only for the Doctor to be surprised by their voluminous knowledge of the time period where they’ve ended up. As it turns out, there’s a popular podcast about it. Of course, the podcast neglected to mention the flesh-eating alien monsters lurking about. No worries, though, as the Doctor bounds through time and space to not only battle the alien threat, but to keep a few rogue time agents in line AND get to the bottom of this curious podcast. All in a day’s work for the Doctor.
Volume 2: Hidden Human History is a quintessentially Doctor Who story, one that bends time, plays with our expectations, and introduces a creepy yet intriguing new race to the DW pantheon. This story makes the most of the Thirteenth Doctor’s quirky personality and her new gaggle of companions, keeping the witty banter alive and well while looping together ancient battles and the wibbly-wobbly nature of the Doctor’s adventures in a thoroughly satisfying and thoughtful adventure.
The art is vibrant and bright without detracting at all from the serious threats encountered by the Doctor and her friends, making the light moments lighter and the dark moments more engrossing by juxtaposition.
Jody Houser has crafted one heck of a sci-fi romp in this one, and for any remaining doubters — and the number should already be low at this point — it’s obvious the Thirteenth Doctor is in excellent hands.
