Bringing excitement and energy at every turn the Doctor manages to help a women who’s losing the will to live find something worth living for as a giant alien dog run riot through the streets of London.

Mighty Avengers writer Al Ewing and The Royals: Masters of War writer Rob Williams scribe this tale with the fun atmosphere being the perfect follow-up to it’s morbid start. The way that the duo handle this adventure really appealed to me as apart from getting the characteristics of the Eleventh Doctor right they also manage to produce something enticing and relevant. I also loved the nod to London culture as well as the general one-shot feel. Allowing a self contained introduction to the series.

Rounding off the all British creative team is Simon Fraser who overall produces terrific artwork. That being said I did find his rendition of Matt Smith‘s Eleventh Doctor to be slightly disconcerting as he made his face look a lot longer than it actually is. Other than that I really enjoyed his art with the fun and energetic feel being the perfect match for a Doctor Who story. Gary Caldwell‘s colours also bring a vibrant feel to the issue with the transition between the grey toned start and coloured main feature fitting the story perfectly.

Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor is back with a fun, quirky and emotional adventure. Between this and the Tenth Doctor Titan really have hit something amazing and I look forward to seeing how they follow-up on this.
