Doctor Who: The Lost Dimension Omega (#8 of 8)

      Some of the best Doctor Who stories (or at least the ones I enjoy the most) bring together different incarnations of The Doctor.

   Whoops, forgot the recap: Doctor Who is a long-lived alien who travels through space and time in a machine / starship called the Tardis that's bigger on the inside. If he is killed during an adventure, his body regenerates in the shape of an entirely different actor - something it's done 13 times so far (depending on who's counting) - and it'll be happening again in about a month. Apparently.

   So this issue gives us a galactic menace - mysterious white holes that, like their black hole counterparts, draw in any object - and they seem to be unstoppable.

   You'll see lots of Doctors popping up in this series, as they discover the surprising person behind the white holes - and work together to devise a solution.

   And with a small army of Doctors and a swarm of Companions to tackle the problem, you can expect some wild twists and turns.

   It's a delight to see the different characters interact in this tale, and it gives each character the proper voice and attitude.

   As always, it's great fun watching this lot trying to one-up each other. Loved it!
