Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #12 - A Review

When a strange craft destroys the International Space Station and vaporizes Lake Windermere, the call goes out for The Doctor. But UNIT can't get a hold of him and their soldiers are utterly helpless as more spaceships surround the Earth, saying only two words - Hyperios Rises.  Little do they know that The Doctor is already in the thick of it, coping with twitchy townsfolk and zombies made of ash!

One can't accuse Robbie Morrison of thinking small with his scripts for this series. When the destruction of a space-station is just the pre-credits sequence, you know we're in for something big. Yet despite the global scale of this story and the intense action, the best moments are those in which The Doctor and Clara play off of each other or interact with other characters.

Daniel Indro and Slamet Mujiono were partnered together for Robbie Morrison's turn on Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor. They do the same stellar job here that they did there. Indro has a highly detailed style, which suffers somewhat in the long-shots but looks utterly amazing in the short distance and close-ups. And Mujiono's colors prove well-chosen.
