Review ~ Doctor Who: The Forgotten

Doctor Who: The Forgotten

by Tony Lee
illustrated by Pia Guerra, Stefano Martino, Kelly Yates
genre: Graphic Novel, Sci-Fi, Fantasy 

Summary (Goodreads): Stranded in a strange Museum that's dedicated to him, and with no TARDIS in sight, The Doctor and Martha must make sense of their surroundings, hindered by one small fact - The Doctor has lost his memories of every one of his previous incarnations! With items relevant to each Doctor in their possession, The Doctor must try to use them to regain his memories before it's too late, starting with his earliest incarnation's memories, involving Susan, Barbara, and Ian... but quickly moving on to Zoe and Jamie, and more. This all-new series written by Tony Lee (Starship Troopers) features artist Pia Guerra in her first monthly comic since Y The Last Man.

My Thoughts: I picked this one up at the library for the simple fact that it had something about all the doctors in it. I just started watching the show this year and only from #9 forward.
There were quick little story for each doctor based on an item they found with their individual outfits. I liked the glimpses of the older doctors and their companions. It did peak my interest to find time in the future to visit the older seasons.
Martha was not one of my favorites but the reason for her being there was well done and played an important role in the Doctor starting to piece things together. The villain in this story was the least interesting but still needed in order to move the story forward.
Overall, I enjoyed both the story and the graphics from this series. There was a very noticeable change in the drawings at one point but was explained in the note from Tony Lee at the end.

Rating: 4
