Doctor Who #3 - The Doctor and the Nurse, Part 1 of 2 Review

Doctor Who #3 Review


Doctor Who #3 Cover
First issue in a special two-part story featuring the art of Philip Bond! The stress from their past few adventures have the Doctor and Rory at each other's throats, and Amy has had just about enough. So she sends them on a boys night out, must to their chagrin, but with a TARDIS at their disposal.

Cover/Solicit - 4/5

- Would I pick-up the comic based on the solicit/cover alone? Are the alternate covers appealing? Does the solicit/cover portray what happens in the issue?

Art - 3/5

- Do I personally like this artist's style? Does the artist stay true to the characters appearance?

Colors/Ink/Lettering - 4/5

- Does the work blend well with the artist? Is the coloring/inking enjoyable and easy to distinguish what's happening? Can I easily read the lettering?

Layout/Flow - 4/5

- Does the layout of the issue make it easy to read? Does the issue have a good flow of the plot and keep me engaged?

Story - 4/5

- Weighted Triple. How well did the issue further develop the current story? How well did the issue further develop the characters? Did I enjoy reading the issue?


Verdict - 3.9

- It's nice to see an issue that deals with the interpersonal relations between characters. In this issue, Amy Pond believes the reason The Doctor and Rory Williams argue is because they haven't spent enough time together. So what's the logical thing to do, drop Amy in the 1814 and grab a beer before jump around the time-stream. It's a fun issue, and my only gripe really is the art. I just can't get over the cartoon style. I really enjoyed seeing Ian Fleming and that Rory and The Doctor were his inspiration for James Bond. Oh and did I mention there's a Beer flood in London. Can't wait to see what happens next issue.
