Doctor Who: The Forgotten #5
Doctor Who: The Forgotten #5 (IDW Publishing)
By Tony Lee, Pia Guerra & Nick Roche
The Doctor’s tour through his previous incarnations takes us up to his two more recent forms. After visiting the past of the eighth and ninth Doctors, a refresher on life #10 suddenly changes everything we thought we knew about this series. I’ve mentioned before that the problem I had with this series was what seemed like a kind of generic villain and a plot that served as little more than an excuse to drift through the various Doctors of the past. this issue answers those problems and then some. The reveal about the villain was totally unexpected, and the truth about Martha was a great little twist. With one issue to go, I think I’ve got an inkling about at least one more reveal, but even if I’m wrong, this has shaped up to be a series that’s far more than the sum of its parts. Highly recommended for all fans of the Doctor!
