The second instalment of Titan Comics’ latest Doctor Who comic picks up where we left off, with the Thirteenth Doctor still jailed with the Fam and (as well as) Pete and Jackie Tyler, and the Tenth Doctor arriving to this alternate version of Rose, who does not recognize him. He slowly gets on her good side and gets her to join him in the TARDIS so they can fix what has gone wrong with time. For example, Rose has a happy picture with her family, one that doesn’t even make sense in their current reality being dominated by Sea Devils.
For the Thirteenth, she tries to get within the good graces of Pete and Jackie, hoping to uncover some answers as to how this history has unfolded. They are rescued from the jail by a Skithra, one of the nasty bug alien people from the Tesla episode in Series 12, but this Skithra isn’t nearly as evil. They all pile into their respective TARDIS and take off to try and find the source of the time deviation. Sadly...both TARDIS begin to crash into each other or converge within the Vortex!
Cliffhanger time! Will they all survive? Well, yes. Obviously. But it should be fun to find out what happens next.
This is a definite “middle episode.” One that needs to build up to the conclusion, but doesn’t have a ton of interesting details. It is a solid read, but I look forward to having the full story.
