Doctor Who: The Forgotten #2

Doctor Who: The Forgotten #2 (IDW Publishing)
By Tony Lee & Pia Guerra

Last issue, the Doctor and Martha were captured and the Doctor’s memories of his past incarnations were wiped away. As they explore a sort of museum of his exploits, he slowly begins to rebuild the knowledge of the nine Doctors that came before him. All the while, though, their hidden enemy is watching, and scheming. The Regeneration angle is one of the things that makes Doctor Who such a unique character, and makes this a story you couldn’t tell with anyone else. The trip down memory lane is very entertaining, and very evocative of the “multiple doctor” episodes the old series did every once in a while. Pia Guerra‘s artwork is wonderful, capturing the likenesses of the many Doctors and companions, but not going so photorealistic as to be distracting from the comic book story. The only real drawback is the “unseen enemy” — it’s not really that compelling and doesn’t seem to serve much of a purpose other than setting up the flashbacks. Hopefully, the next few issues will rememdy that problem.
