Book Review: Doctor Who. Volume 1, Fugitive by Tony Lee, Al Davison, & Matthew Smith

Author:Tony Lee, Al Davison, & Matthew Smith

ISBN: 1600106072
Summary/Review: My Doctor Who obsession continues into graphic novels.  Here the Tenth Doctor enjoys an adventure in 1920s Hollywood, gains two new companions, and a new nemesis, The Advocate.  The comic format allows for a visual imagination that would not likely be convincing in a televised format but on the other hand the dialogue seems spare and simplistic.  Still, this is an enjoyable romp.

Rating: **1/2

    I agree with most of what you’re saying, but I liked the dialogue. I thought it was enjoyable too.

      Thanks for your comment. I guess my commentary sounds a bit harsh, I just found that there was more action than dialogue than is typical in a televised Doctor Who which I love for it’s witty repartee.
