Then, we look at Titan Comics Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor Year Two with issues #1-5.

And, of course, your feedback
Celebrate Christmas a little early this year by joining us for “The Husbands of River Song” for Friday Night Who!
“Class” premieres tomorrow (in the UK)…and what better way to get ready than to watch “The Caretaker” for Friday Night Who!
In this show we feature our final ‘Beyond the Doctor’ for the year, closing the series with Twelfth Doctor actor Peter Capaldi in the film, In the Loop. We give our reviews of the farcical dark comedy and our impressions of Capaldi’s performance as Malcolm Tucker, perhaps his most famous role before stepping into the TARDIS.
Also, not much as far as news this week, but lots of your feedback to read out.
Titan Comics released a preview of issue 5 for the second year of the 12th Doctor comics. It hits stands on May 11th.
It’s the long-awaited return of a deadly foe, as the Doctor and Clara face a monster that will have you checking your stack of comics for suspicious movement! Dare you continue reading, when every page turn could bring you into MORTAL DANGER?! You have to – you’re the Doctor’s only hope!
Today Titan comics announced a massive crossover even for Doctor Who Comics Day celebrates the 50th Anniversary of the Cybermen!
The 5 issue bi-weekly adventure is titled ‘Supremacy of the Cybermen’ and stars the Ninth Doctor (Christopher Eccleston), Tenth Doctor (David Tennant), Eleventh Doctor (Matt Smith), and Twelfth Doctor (Peter Capaldi), and their comic companions – Gabby, Cindy, Alice, Rose (Billie Piper) and Captain Jack (John Barrowman)!
Here’s how Titan comics describe the plot:
“Exiled from Gallifrey at the very end of time, Rassilon, fallen leader of the Time Lords, has been captured by the last of the Cybermen. Now, the Cybermen have access to time travel. With it, every defeat becomes a victory. Every foe is now dead — or Cyberized.”
Written by George Mann & Cavan Scott with art by Alessandro Vitti the first issue drops Wednesday, July 6th, just ahead of Doctor Who Comics Day on Saturday July 9th and will feature 5 variant covers.
2016 marks the 50th anniversary of the show’s iconic cyborgs, the Cybermen. The Cybermen first appeared in the story ‘The Tenth Planet’ in 1966, and have been featured in Doctor Who numerous times since, including being brought back in the “new series” in the 2006 two-part, ‘Rise of the Cybermen’ and ‘The Age of Steel.’
It’s book review time for this week’s show. We tackle the Goodreads.com Traveling the Vortex Book Club selection for March, Deep Time by Trevor Baxendale. We share our impressions on the 12th Doctor and Clara story which completes the Glamour Chronicles story arc in the New Adventure series.
Also, a little bit of news on the awards circuit with a nomination for a certain Time Lor…. err.. Lady.
And… wait… this is getting redundant… no feedback again this week? We’ll a Goodreads submitted review will have to do, then.
