Doctor Who: The Forgotten #3
Doctor Who: The Forgotten #3 (IDW Publishing)
By Tony Lee & Stefano Martino
The Doctor continues his journey through his own past this issue. Martha explores the museum, while the Doctor finds a new memory triggered by a bag of Jelly Babies. Longtime fans grasp the significance immediately, of course, but seeing the current Doctor explore perhaps his most iconic incarnation is a lot of fun. My complaint about the previous issue was that I didn’t think the villain was developed enough. Tony Lee is beginning to address that. While we still don’t get much, we get a little more, and we see the character becoming more fleshed out. Martha has a little more to do here as well, and we get more into the past of the Time Lords themselves. I was disappointed at Pia Guerra‘s absence from this issue, but Stefano Martino did a fine job with the various characters represented herein. It was a really strong issue, and one that’s bringing this series in the right direction.
