Review - Doctor Who Series 1: Winter's Dawn, Season's End
Disclaimer: I received this book free from Diamond Book Distributors in exchange for an honest review. I did not receive any form of compensation.
The description that was provided to me by NetGalley for this particular graphic novel was definitely incorrect. But that is quite alright. I still loved it anyway.
The graphic novel takes place with the Doctor as portrayed by Matt Smith. The copy that I received only had two stories within it and not the 16 stories that it stated on NetGalley.
It takes place shortly after Amy & Rory lose Melody/River. The first story tells how they deal with it and also how they spend their anniversary. I loved the fact that the questions that the show had left open were actually answered in this graphic novel.
The second story took place shortly afterwards. Amy felt that the reason the Doctor and Rory didn't have a great relationship is because they never had time together to really do some male bonding. So she sends the two of them off for a little R&R time together. Again, this story helped answer some questions that the TV series left hanging in the air.
The art was ok. There were some spots where the characters looked a little weird, especially Rory. I am not sure why that was. And in the second story, there were two very different styles of drawing. In fact, they even would have the two styles in the same frame. It became a little disconcerting.
Overall, it was a very enjoyable book. I really wished that it would have had the full amount of stories that it stated. It is hard to do a decent review when you only get a quick peek at something. That would be like only getting to see the grill of a car but having to give a description about the car as a whole. It simply can't be done.
