Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #13 - A Review

The Doctor and Clara have returned to Earth just in time for an invasion by the Hyperions. They've fought these living suns before but it took all of their collective cunning to deal with one of them when they had the element of surprise on their side. Even the full resources of UNIT and the power of the office of President of The Earth may not be enough to get them out of this one...

Reading a Robbie Williams Doctor Who story is always a treat. His work on The Tenth Doctor series was a perfect encapsulation of the David Tennant era of Doctor Who and his run here is proving to be equally adept in portraying The Doctor of Series 8. The Hyperions are a worthy addition to The Doctor's rogues' gallery and many of the sequences - such as The Doctor's appointing Clara Minister of Hugs and ordering the execution of an annoying politician who suggests surrendering to The Hyperions - are hilarious.

Daniel Indro's artwork is a little busy at times and his inks can be a little too thick. Then we get sequences like the above page - in which The Doctor explains the menace of the Hyperions - and you marvel at his ability to fit such fine detail into such a relatively small space. The colors by Slamet Mujiono are skillfully applied as well.
