[quote=“Rob Williams”]I’ll give a nod to the three-week run of Paul Cornell’s “Human Nature” two-parter followed by [Steven] Moffat’s “Blink.” That was a real high point I think. I loved, in Paul’s episode, how he asked Jessica Stephenson’s character to come with him and she tells him off, asks how many people die when he’s on his adventures. I love the joy of the Doctor’s adventuring but I also love the occasional glimpse into the fact that this is a god we’re discussing here, and the weight that offers.

Favorite Smith episode – I thought the 50th Anniversary special was a superb bit of writing. It was such a tightrope but I thought Moffat nailed that one. “The Pandorica” at the close of Smith’s first season was pretty great too. [/quote]

[quote=“Al Ewing”]A toughie. If we’re talking Matt Smith, Rob’s already picked the 50th, but in terms of sheer excitement I’d have to say my favorite was the first ever – “The Eleventh Hour.” Which is a horrible thing to say, because it makes it sound like it was all downhill from there – but that was the episode that introduced us to the new Doctor, and it was a barnstormer. You can’t ever get back that feeling of euphoria at seeing a brand new Doctor and knowing that he’s going to be brilliant in the role, and the new show they’re creating around him – because it’s always a brand new show – is going to be brilliant too.

In terms of the classic series, the last couple of episodes of “Enemy Of The World” are fantastic, now that we get to see them. “Power Of The Daleks” episode one would be an automatic win if we only had a copy. The ending of “Caves Of Androzani” has a special place in my heart, and I’m a massive fan of the strange avant-garde theater of “The Web Planet” – and an honorable mention goes to the last episode of “Resurrection Of The Daleks,” purely for Rodney Bewes. “I CAN’T STAND THE CONFUSION IN MY MIIIIND!” “I wouldn’t mind a taste of revenge.” And the way he flops like a penguin on the self-destruct button. One of the grimmest and darkest episodes of the classic series, skillfully and expertly undermined by the bloke from “The Likely Lads.” If they’d swapped him with Dirty Den I’d be suggesting it seriously.[/quote]

When the Doctor last visited Rokhandi, it was a planet of such stunning natural beauty that an entire solar system had sworn to preserve it. What better place to take new companion Alice Obiefune on her first off-world adventure?
And it would have been a magical vacation… if the TARDIS hadn’t overshot by fifty years. Now the austerity-hit pleasure planet has become a ‘theme safari’ corporate hell, overrun by eerie, giant-headed mascots and a trillion tramping tourist feet!
But there’s something more sinister at play than rampant commercialism and ecological devastation… and the Doctor and Alice need to uncover all of Rokhandi’s long-buried secrets if they’re to escape with their lives!
Writer Al Ewing (Loki: Agent of Asgard) and artist Simon Fraser (Grindhouse) request that you have a nice day, whichever system you’re from. We hope to SERVE YOU again in the future![/quote]

A DEVIL HAUNTS THE MIDNIGHT CROSSROADS… AND MUSICIANS ARE ITS PREY!
There’s a devil out on the bayou, or so they say… Something stalking bluesmen through the swamps of Mississippi, offering them talent beyond imagining, worlds at their feet - in exchange for their souls!
When Alice asks the Doctor if they can visit one of her mother’s musical heroes, she’s initially disappointed. Is Jones, a forgettable singer whose talent seems to be that of disappearing in a crowded room, really the colossal talent who brought passion, creativity and meaning to her mother’s life?
And what does he have to do with the nightmarish deals taking place in the dead of night…?
Writer Rob Williams (Ordinary) and artist Simon Fraser (Grindhouse, Nikolai Dante) multiply the chills, in this haunting adventure into the soul of music![/quote]

PICKED OFF ONE BY ONE BY AN ENTITY FROM THE STARS!
Alice Obiefune always wanted to see a space station – one of those proper ones, like on the telly, with impressive bulkheads, sweeping corridors and stunning views of eternity. Maybe with an exotic matter wormhole nearby, if it’s not too much trouble. Aliens optional, but a bonus as long as they’re friendly.
That’s just one of the reasons Alice and the Doctor have come to a remote space research facility.
The views are breathtaking… but so is the formless creature creeping through the station, stealing voices and inflicting comas on those research scientists unlucky enough to be caught.
Tracking the temporal trail of the slippery SERVEYOUinc corporation, has the Doctor found more than he bargained for? And will this entity from between the stars be the death of them all?
Writer Al Ewing (Loki: Agent of Asgard) and artist Boo Cook (2000AD, Elephantmen) ramp up the claustrophobia for a terrifying space adventure![/quote]

!REVERSE IN GOING IS TARDIS THE INSIDE TIME THAT REALISES DOCTOR THE WHEN STRIKES TERROR
The Doctor is the only one who realises that the flow of time in the vortex has been disrupted, but can he uncover the cosmic culprit and put causality back on the right track – before Alice and her fellow TARDIS travelers are de-aged right out of existence?
Rob Williams and Simon Fraser spin a mind-bogglingly unique tale that cannot be missed![/quote]

[quote]We’re all huge fans of the TV companions for the Tenth and Eleventh Doctors, but everyone knows how Donna and Amy join and leave the show (to say nothing of Rose, Martha or Rory) – and knowing that both the Doctor and companion make it out of each adventure alive robs them of a little bit of impact. You can surround them with red shirts, but they’ll always be red shirts.

With brand new characters that don’t appear in the show, that frisson is back, in a big way.

There’s also a sense that, since the show returned, the emotional lives and narrative arcs of the companions are what drives the series. Bringing in fresh companion characters allows us to show the Doctor in a brand new light, from new perspectives, and to have those all-new characters grow, change and challenge and be challenged by the Doctor and their experiences in the TARDIS. We’re only four issues into the lives of Gabby and Alice, and they’re already putting a firm stamp on their respective eras!

If readers come to care for them even a fraction as much as they do for the TV companions they love, then we’ve achieved our goal. Getting our first pieces of fan art was a wonderful moment, and some of my favorite interactions with fans at conventions have been about the new companions – especially the woman at NYCC, whose Hispanic, David Tennant-loving best friend lived in Sunset Park!

Je reviens sur un échange avec Jack! récemment, dans le sujet sur la série du 10e Docteur :

[quote=“Jack!”]

Je conseille plutôt celle sur le onzième Docteur qui est de haute volée. Les intrigues s’enchainent vite et dans la bonne humeur tout en développant différents compagnons très attachants (dont David Bowie !?!). Les deux auteurs, Ewing et Morrison, parviennent à émuler le style de Steve Moffat sur une intrigue au long-terme avec des menaces conceptuelles (l’épisode qui se lit à l’envers) ou les tarabiscotages et quiproquos temporels (et que je rencontre Intel qui m’a déjà rencontré dans le futur, etc.) sans pour autant sombrer dans la facilité comme leur maitre à penser.
Surtout que, coté dessin, la série est loin de l’album photo que tu exècres. Les styles de Simon Fraiser (avec ses lignes de vues improbables et ses anatomies difformes) et Boo Cook (même s’il est un peu en deçà de son niveau habituel) rendent justement les manières des personnages, leurs gestuels, sans tomber dans la parodie. Et on reste dans le dessin.[/quote]

Après avoir lu les six premiers de la série du 11e Docteur, je suis entièrement d’accord avec toi. :slight_smile:
Quel plaisir de savourer des histoires cohérentes, bien écrites, très dynamiques, quasiment auto-contenues (seuls les #4 et 5 concernent la même intrigue), bourrées d’idées SF et de personnages bien caractérisés. La menace constante rappelle les meilleures heures des subplots de Russel T. Davies, et le 11e Docteur est très bien écrit, loin des abus et facilités de Moffat sur les derniers temps de Matt Smith dans le rôle.

Je suis conquis, et je partais de loin ! Merci.
Je vais de ce pas me préparer à la suite, malgré le départ d’un des scénaristes.

Vu cet enthousiasme, j’ai aussi décidé de commencer la lecture des Dr Who de Titan Comics par le premier TPB du 11ème Docteur…
Bouquin commandé aujourd’hui ! :wink:

Je viens de lire les derniers et il y a un twist concernant la religion qui est quand même sacrément couillu.

Ce qui m’étonne le plus, c’est que Rob Williams, un scénariste dont je me souviens de bien peu de choses, est à la hauteur de son comparse Al Ewing. Je me rappelle m’être dit “oh, flûte” la première fois où son nom est apparu mais, au final, il a clairement bien compris les personnages et la dynamique de série. Résultat, on a une qualité constante tout du long.

Cela dit, on perd un très bon scénariste (Ewing) pour gagner un très bon scénariste (Si Spurrier) (du peu que j’ai lu de lui). Mais c’est vrai que la bonne humeur et le fourmillement d’idées dont fait preuve le premier va manquer à la série.

[quote=“Le Doc”]Vu cet enthousiasme, j’ai aussi décidé de commencer la lecture des Dr Who de Titan Comics par le premier TPB du 11ème Docteur…

Veinard !

Et c’était vachement bon ! C’est en effet très bien écrit, bien caractérisé, avec des dialogues épatants, un savoureux Docteur, des nouveaux compagnons déjà très attachants, des bonnes idées en pagaille, du rythme, du fun, un fil rouge intrigant…
Graphiquement, c’est pas mal du tout, malgré quelques légères réserves (mais globalement, c’est tout de même de meilleure qualité que les premiers comics publiés par IDW).
Bref, vivement la suite…et je ne manquerais pas d’acheter également les aventures des autres Docteurs…
