Review: Doctor Who Prisoner of Time #1, David Tipton

*Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book on Netgalley from the publisher in return for an honest review*
Doctor Who Prisoner of Time #1, David Tipton cover
November 23, 1963: A day that changed the world forever. That day saw the broadcast debut of Doctor Who, which was to become the longest-running science-fiction series on television. And now, 50 years later, we pay tribute to one of the greatest pop-culture heroes of all time with this special series, which tells an epic adventure featuring all 11 incarnations of the intrepid traveler through time and space known simply as… the Doctor.

I do not watch Dr. Who. I had heard about the serie in the past and obviously when it returned I heard a lot of people being so happy. I am not a real Science Fiction person or time travel or scary aliens. Still all the hype surrounding Dr Who made me curious and when I found this comic on Netgally I decided to give it a try and see what it was all about, especially after someone told me you did not have to be a Whovian to get the stories.
The book holds three short comics that are slowly building up to a greater plot. Though that is obvious from the beginning I felt they could have made a bit more of an effort to make the stories more interesting. They feel a bit rushed as if they are building up to a plot but something has to happen so we throw in an alien or two and the Doctor has to fight them and we can move on to the next story.
The art itself was various. The first story had a different illustrator and I did not really like those. The images where to vague. I like details more. The other two stories had images I liked better.
I do feel the comic gave me a proper introduction to Doctor Who and in I very much appreciated getting more of an insight of what it is.

I don't feel there was enough content in this book to really make up my mind but it did not encourage me to dive in the whole Doctor Who world either.
