In this newest volume of The Eleventh Doctor: Year Two, we pick up right where we left off in the last. The Doctor is trying to find his companion Alice.He’s trying to stop the end of all time. He’s trying to save River. But not one off those things is going well for him. It’s odd to see the Doctor scared, but that is how we start this part of the story. Almost defeated, he’s grasping at straws to figure a way out of this newest knot he’s gotten himself into.
Meanwhile in the past, the War Doctor is with Alice, trying to stop the Psilent Songbox which is causing the complete chronal meltdown. The end of all time is happening and the two of them are at the center of it. Somehow, The War Doctor miraculously gets the Psilent Songbox from Alice and is able to send her forward in time to her doctor, The Eleventh Doctor. As usual, the reader is left in disbelief that is all actually pulled off and wondering how it worked. But then again, it’s all wibbly-wobbly-timey-whimey stuff after all. If you add in a crazy Dalek but not Dalek and the Squire who has definitely seen better days, “Your squire lives. Your squire is dead. Your squire sleeps.” and you have this, another cliffhanger.
I must say I love the imagery in this comic. The giant eye in space is something that will definitely haunt my nightmares for the foreseeable future. I really love how Titan is handling bringing my favorites to life with these comics. They do such a great job getting artists and writers who seem to know the world of Doctor Who. They seem to care and be willing to steep themselves into the world of the Timelords. I say bring it on, Titan.
