    Just went out and got four of the six variants yesterday. Pretty good story (I haven’t read the last few so I’m in the dark about how the paradox was created) . The Sea Devils are a nice return, and the actual plot is interesting. The art as always is very good and helps improve the story. I’d recommend this one to people who want to jump on the comic train as it’s a fresh reboot, but you may be slightly lost.

    Is this one comic with alternate covers, or is it going to be six totally different stories?

      Thanks for reply.
      Don’t usually buy comics, really like look of these though. If it’s one comic I’ll try and get cover with all the Drs on, really nice. I’ll also find out why 1st Dr is blind.

      @Coleman: Click on the Forbidden Planet link at the top of this page. If you go to the 13 Doctor’s Cover, click on & enlarge & look closely at the Hartnell image. He isn’t blind, he is giving a shifty side eye look to the left, if you look carefully enough.

      Oh ok,
      Thanks for letting us know.
      I thought it was going to be a plot point.

    looks like a very interesting series of doctor who comics to collect. Lovely cover designs. On a different note I have just seen the release date of Tales from the Tardis is now showing as 10th September as it release date, and I ask myself this question will I ever see this comic being released again before christmas.

    Why didn’t they put sea devils on praxaes episode instead of the comic that’s the most insulting thing happened to the classic monster it unfair!.

    Why did they Include John Hurt but leave Jon Pertwee off the multi Doctor cover?

      I’d agree that it could be on Pete’s World as that first cover looks to have both Pete and Jackie on the cover.

    Its all gone a bit squiffy, with covid 19 , I assume. The last issue (#4) said the next issue was Due July 2020. With 13th Doctor /Tenth Doctor and Sea-Devils.

    This appears to be a re-boot with issue 5 becoming Issue 1, with Sea-Devils.

    Not sure looking a FP, if I have this on subscription (as it would have been as issue 5).

    Do love the mutli-Doctor Cover (are they all in it now?) But As someone said Below. Hartnell looks blind(might be a story plot point/might just be a bad angle as he is looking left) .

    I like the cover with all the Doctors, cool

    I don’t even understand what this is? Wasn’t the last one a retelling of blink or something like that? And now series 4 Rose is here? Is it some alternative time line? Is it actually canon? I don’t understand

    the tenth doctor is getting about in comic series lately.I notice they’ve dropped thirteenth doctor from the title.

    This is absolutely superb. I collect every cover variant. But caution as FP are about 4 months behind with comics. I went once in June and two weeks ago to be given the same issue twice, one number on from March….
    Maybe some comics won’t appear now and they will jump forward. Hardly matters. That Tales of the TARDIS comic from May is also impossible to find.

      The Tales From The TARDIS issue that was due in May hasn’t been published yet (3.4). Latest date on newsstand website is September 10.

      Tales From The Tardis Iss 3.4 was due out 7/5/20 & has been continually delayed. As it’s just re-prints I can’t understand the problem here? Other companies have produced (Even with COVID) a full 190 Page Magazine within a month. Iss 3.4 had the 3 Final Parts of the current storyline then would have continued with the Sea Devils tale. I have contacted the publication twice (First back in Jun) & am currently awaiting a reply to them I emailed a week ago. If they don’t give a satisfactory response I will cancel my subscription. TITAN has always been terrible with the Tales From The Tardis comic anyway & I’m fed up of trying to keep it together with these. I’m thinking of switching to the Cutaway Comics ‘From The World of Doctor Who’ range starting with ‘Lytton’

      I am very disappointed that Tales from the tardis is now 29th october, I believe that this will change again before it is finally released to us dedicated doctor who fans

    How can Series 4 Rose be here?Please explain?

    • bryan

      August 20th, 2020 - 8:22pm

      1. we could be on Pete`s world

      2 We could meet her on our world, as she cannon jumps(nothing to say they meet)

      3 Timey Wimmey (it does have the Doctor in it after all)

      I wouldn’t read into the covers at all. They used to have Amy and Rory appear on cover for the Eleventh Doctor comics even though they aren’t in any of them.

    Like the top left one with just a glimpse of the 13th Dr.

      I love 13 and can’t stand 10

    But it’s not their comic debut, they were the antagonists of a four-issue Twelfth Doctor story published BY Titan Comics in 2016!

    I’m not sure what to make of this TBH. I like that they’ve simplified the range into a single comic, but I really wish we could go back to stories following a single Doctor’s adventures, this is really starting to feel like overkill.

  • Coleman

    What’s amatter with William Hartnell, he looks blind on the cover.
    I’ll have to wait while somebody reads these.
    Maybe they’ll post why?

    Not just the Sea Devils but Series 4 Rose

    I’ve never really collected comics for years.
    But some really well designed covers their.
