As one adventure ends, another begins.
Continuing immediately from the events of the last issue, the doctor learns of the mysterious vortex butterflies which are in fact time remnants of Gabby which have sprung from all the what if’s and maybe’s in her timeline. A future version of Gabby has trapped the doctor on the unnamed planet with her, blocking off the doctor’s only escape, the TARDIS.
Back on Earth the adventure continues with the epic team up of Cindy, Gabby and Sarah Jane Smith, what words really well in this issue, is the amalgamation of the TV series’ Sarah Jane Smith and the comic TARDIS team, it is a teaming which works rather well and works within the narrative of the story to shine a light on how companions are left behind or move on, which is the main focus of the story, and the cause of the vortex butterflies created by Gabby and the TARDIS.
The doctor needs to stop the vortex butterflies catching up with the rest of the universe before it all becomes a massive paradox, but with the doctor trapped on his own with a time ripple of Gabby and the TARDIS team on earth, that may be harder than they expect.
Overall a satisfying conclusion to this 4 part story arc, the adventure progressed well throughout all four issues and has come to a climax in this issue ending as all doctor who adventures do, by starting a whole new journey through time and space.
Outstanding artwork from Giorgia Sposito who not only gave some outstanding panels but also drew in lovely cameo references to past companions. All characters were drawn within the usual high standards, highlighting, of course, the 10th doctor.
This issue finished by setting up the finale issues of year 3 from Titan Comics, leaving readers interested and wanting to find out more of the mysterious lock-keeper.
