Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor: Year Two #9 - A Review

Traveling on The TARDIS for the first time, Cindy Wu was disappointed when the magnificent time-ship deposited her, her best friend Gabby Gonzales and The Doctor at a paranormal book fair in Dewsbury. She'd been hoping for an adventure. And she found it after the witch who haunts the local well attacked her with a psychic blast that's left her worse for wear, along with the other inhabitants of Dewsbury. But there's more to the "witch" than meets the eye. And even The Doctor may not be able to stop it before everyone in Dewsbury gives the monster a piece of their minds. Literally.

Sadly, this is one of the few disappointing Doctor Who comics I've seen since Titan Comics took over the license. The artwork of Iolanda Zanfardino renders the story nearly unreadable, with off-model characters and contrived poses proving the norm. It's a shame because Nick Abadzis' script delivers an amazing twist ending but readers will likely lose patience navigating the twisted panel placement and disjointed characters before they get to that point.
