    This is a story of two Roses, Rose Tyler living together with David Tennant Doctor in another time line and Empress Rose Tyler who wants to speak to her Tennant Doctor. One Rose gets displaced and meets the 8th Doctor and the Empress wanted to speak with her Doctor (also Tennant Doctor) and she ends up with the one that came after Tennant. So both Roses are confronted with a version of the Doctor they do not know. The 8th Doctor is brilliant given far too little screentime for my taste.

Matt Smiths Doctor is my favorite Doctor of the new series mad as a hatter and a crazy man in a blue box. A very enjoyable episode of comic Doctor Who that does deliver a decent tale for the fans of the Doctor, not a good start for newbies.

    2.5 I was so excited to really love this. I love Rose, I love 8, I loved the idea of seeing Rose and Tentoo happy and the whole premise of this series. I ended up enjoying several moments and lines from this, but found it to overall feel a little rushed or unexplained at times. I felt like whenever something was set up I was really excited for it ended up being resolved really quickly or brushed past. The third issue also felt very filler-y and I was overall let down by the ending. My biggest pr 2.5 I was so excited to really love this.

I felt like whenever something was set up I was really excited for it ended up being resolved really quickly or brushed past. The third issue also felt very filler-y and I was overall let down by the ending. My biggest problem though, and what ultimately made me give this such a low review, was the art and ESPECIALLY the colouring. Why does everyone seem to have blue eyes? Why is Rose kissing a doctor in a brown suit during the flashback to Journey’s end? Why is it 10 in different clothing (or maybe that was meant to be Pete? It looked like how 10 had been drawn) with Rose and Jackie in the flashback to Father’s Day? Why do both Roses have fluctuating hair cuts page to page? I was starting to hope it was all meant to be a *little* off because it was part of a problem the characters would need to face or a reveal of some sort, but it just seems to be a weird divergence from the show and other comics. Overall I loved the idea but was disappointed by the execution. I really hope we get to see more of Rose in the future!

    Doctor Who: Empire of the Wolf is a fabulous graphic novel. A great joy to get a story with Rose Tyler and the eighth and eleventh doctors. And a cameo of the tenth doctor. I always love what-if stories and alternative worlds stories. so, this story was just right up my alley. A plus is that the characters were drawn so well that they looked like the characters from the TV show.

    Doctor Who: Empire of the Wolf had an interesting plot idea, which is what drew me to request a review copy. It was also an entertaining enough read that I finished in 30 minutes; however, there were some issues. I questioned aspects of the plot that were never fully explained, plus Rose's Bad Wolf persona felt a bit lacking in the way she was portrayed as the Empress, especially considering the title of the book focuses on that.

On the positive side, I did enjoy seeing snippets of her life in the alternate universe with her version of the tenth doctor. When it comes to the illustration that, too, was a bit disappointing. The faces of the two doctors seemed to 'overlap' a lot, with only hair and clothing helping to differentiate them at times. The panels were nicely laid out, especially in some of the full-page spreads, but the lack of distinction between the main characters detracted from that. Overall, I am giving this 3.5 stars. It had a number of problems, but it still kept me entertained for half an hour, and if you are a Doctor Who fan you will doubtless find it enjoyable too. I received this book as a free eBook ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

First, I have to say that I love Rose. She is my favorite companion and this felt like the best kind of fan service. I love that we got a peek into her life with the human version of the Doctor and that - for the most part - they seem happy (interesting that this doesn’t follow the deleted scene where Rose and 10.2 get a TARDIS of their own). As with a lot of this show, I think this story has a lot to do with identity…The differences between Eight and Eleven (and even the Meta-Crisis Doctor)...Rose with her daughter and how that relationship parallels Rose and Jackie… and of course the different paths that Companion Rose and Empress Rose have taken. I really liked that this adventure was with Eight and Eleven. If they had used Ten, I think that the Doctor/Companion relationship would have taken over the whole plot… and I’ve always wanted to see Eleven and Rose interact. I did think that Eight was underutilized so his part could have been expanded a bit. Overall this was an enjoyable story that I would recommend for readers already entrenched in the Doctor Who Universe.

    My thanks to both NetGalley and the publisher Titan Comics for an advanced copy of this graphic adventure featuring Two Doctors, Two Companions, and too much trouble. People have their favorite Doctors, as in the Timelord not general practioner, and their favorite companion, as in adventuring partner and voice of common sense to the Timelord Doctor. However I think Rose Tyler is probably the companion that most people have the most fondness for. Rose's adventures with the Tenth and Eleventh Doct My thanks to both NetGalley and the publisher Titan Comics for an advanced copy of this graphic adventure featuring Two Doctors, Two Companions, and too much trouble. People have their favorite Doctors, as in the Timelord not general practioner, and their favorite companion, as in adventuring partner and voice of common sense to the Timelord Doctor. However I think Rose Tyler is probably the companion that most people have the most fondness for. Rose's adventures with the Tenth and Eleventh Doctor were all big, all spectacular and all very memorable, as was here departure, something that not a lot of companions can say happened to them. In Doctor Who: Empire of the Wolf written by Jody Houser and illustrated by Roberta Ingranata, Rose returns, in two different forms, with two Doctors one before the one she knew, and the one after the one she knew, its timeywimey stuff, with the galaxy again at stake. In the alternate dimension that Rose Tyler was exiled to with her husband who shares a lot of Timelord parts, Rose has a series of dreams of a different place and time with enemies falling and cities wailing. Suddenly she finds herself back in her old dimension with a TARDIS appearing. Excited she approaches to find not her Doctor, but an earlier Doctor who has no idea who she is, but being the Doctor promises to help her. At the same time (?) the Eleventh Doctor has come across a big bad leader looking a lot like Rose who is having problems of her own. And these problems could lead to troubles for the whole galaxy. There is a lot going on in the plot and the characters are really written well, especially the interplay between the Eighth Doctor, who I am really starting to get soft on and would like to know more about and Rose. However the story is a bit of a mess, and just seems to have gotten out of control or something. At the end I wasn't sure what the plan was, why there needed to be a plan or why I should be caring. Plus there were Sontarans, but I have no idea why. The art was also a little off. The Doctors looked ok Rose was ok, but the backgrounds were murky, and the colors seemed muted and blended into each other. I understand that returning certain characters to the fold you need a big story, but this wasn't really it. I would have much preferred if Rose and the other Doctors just has a simple adventure with more talking. For Rose fans this will be a big draw. Also using the Eighth Doctor is a good idea as he really has no huge baggage, just a bad television show, and really can be anything in a story, is a good idea. However this is not for casual fans, most will be like, who, what where. Which is a shame. I remember the rarity of having the Doctors meet, and how special that was. Not a bad story, but not an epic one that a crossover should be.

Tal and I have been rewatching Doctor Who for a few weeks now, so when I saw EMPIRE OF THE WOLF pop up on Netgalley I knew I had to request it. As soon as I was approved, I curled up to read it and it’s totally rekindled my love for reading Doctor Who content. As I write this, I’m listening to an anthology of short stories (12 Doctors, 12 Stories) and I’ve added a dozen more to my tbr. Oops. I’m very familiar with Nine onwards, but didn’t know much about Eight before reading this comic. I actually really liked the balance of Eight versus Eleven, especially in combination with the two Roses in this graphic novel. It worked very well, and I always enjoy Doctor and Doctor interactions. In this graphic novel, we also get to see an insight into TenToo and Rose’s life in the alternate universe, which I absolutely loved. We’d only recently rewatched Ten’s seasons, so it was nice to see this little scrap of her future. I don’t know enough to say if Eight was in character, but Eleven definitely felt accurately portrayed – I could imagine Matt Smith saying his dialogue and all of his individual quirks were present. Rose was also well-written, and I liked that the two Roses were still very distinct characters. The art style was very pretty, though the character designs could have been a bit more distinct, and I liked the page design very much. It was dynamic and guided the eye very well, leading us through the story in a very readable way. I ended up reading the whole thing in one sitting. Bad Wolf Rose is super interesting to see and I’d love to see more about her. Her character arc is fascinating and I do wish that there was more depth to her character. We get to see an excellent storyline where she deals with the moral consequences of her own actions, but I’d have liked to see more about how she became the Empress in the first place. A story about her rise to power would be fascinating and I’d like that a lot as a graphic novel.

(The fact that I had relive that moment made me want to jump off a cliff because I’m a baby and that scene will forever be burned into my brain). • I LOVE when multiple doctors get together it’s always a good time, I personally don’t know much about the 8th doctor since I started my Doctor Who journey with 9. Now let’s discuss what I didn’t like and unfortunately there’s more cons than pros for me on this one. • I did not like the art style in this at all the characters looked odd to me. • I personally don’t feel like they represented Rose’s “bad wolf” persona very well. • The ending was a bit bland, it didn’t feel epic like how the show is. The doctors said this is what we’re going to do and boom it was done the end, not really exciting. So to wrap this up I’m a bit disappointed in this comic, I was expecting more. I do recommend you read this if you’re a doctor who fan though!

The other Rose is an empress, though one who's got there by helping people. "Most of the revolutionaries I've met bring down palaces, they don't build them," says the Doctor, which is up there with "a man who never would" as one of the most obviously wrong things he's ever said, though I suppose part of the character is that he doesn't tend to stick around for that bit. Which would be OK if the story left it there, but no, instead he proceeds to take the other Rose on a tour of planets she's saved and show her they're still a mess, which just feels hypocritical. There are moments here and there which come off, but overall this is not a winner. (Netgalley ARC)

    The Eighth and Eleventh Doctors team with a pair of Rose Tylers when a time paradox brings the four of them together. But one Rose is the Bad Wolf Empress, and she doesn't suffer fools, Doctors, or dopplegangers lightly... I had a hard time really connecting to this, if I'm being honest. Telling a Rose story without the Ninth or Tenth Doctors feels like a misstep, because even though the Eleventh knows her, it's just not the same.

And the Eighth Doctor has always been a bit of a blank slate, and he doesn't get much to define him here. The plot itself is fine, but its last issue 'twist' is fairly obvious from the get-go. Jody Houser's dialogue is usually pretty good though - she nails the Eleventh Doctor's voice really well. The artwork's lovely though. Roberta Ingranata's Phil Noto-lite style has always been a good fit for the Doctors' adventures, and she manages to make her characters look familiar without being obviously traced or copied. Not bad, but a bit of a puzzle as to why it exists in this form. Replace the Eighth and Eleventh with the Ninth and Tenth and this would have been a very different (and much more impactful) affair.

    Thank you to NetGalley and the Publishers for the E-ARC to read and review. “Doctor Who: Empire of the Wolf” follows 2 different versions of Rose Tyler and 2 separate Doctors. The story was very well done and it felt a lot like an episode of the show. As a fan of Matt Smith’s version of the Doctor it was nice to see him again.

This really added a nice continuation to that storyline and I enjoyed the look into the “after.” The voices of both Doctors were really well done and it was easy to relate them back to their show counterparts because they sounded true to their characters which was a nice and welcome touch. The art was beautifully done and tied in with the overall feel of the story as a whole. I think that fans of “Doctor Who” will enjoy this comic a great deal.

    Rose was on a mission to do some good in the world, to liberate but over the years things changed and she has turned into something more brutal. However, this isn’t our Rose and her timeline has crashed into the one that the Eleventh Doctor knows and he’s going to need a bit of help to get things back on track. When different Doctor’s team up in an adventure (no matter what the format) it makes us fans a bit giddy and this tale is a sheer delight with sentimental moments sprinkled throughout.

I liked that the two Doctor’s used in the book were the Eighth and Eleventh avoiding the obvious connection with the incarnations that Rose had a heartbreaking connection to. This made the story interesting for me and more poignant that she was anchored in the existence that she made for herself in the world of Bad Wolf Bay with the human Doctor.

    I am a fan of doctor who, and when I saw this ARC I jumped at the opportunity, it was a nice story, very close to the series I must say, and with two of the fan favourites, rose and the eleventh doctor, what I didn’t care much for, was the drawings, yes I would know who the character was, not because it was look alike, but because they had something that belonged to the character, like eleventh would use his fez, rose had her big lips, etc, But I really recommend this book for fans of the show, I am a fan of doctor who, and when I saw this ARC I jumped at the opportunity, it was a nice story, very close to the series I must say, and with two of the fan favourites, rose and the eleventh doctor, what I didn’t care much for, was the drawings, yes I would know who the character was, not because it was look alike, but because they had something that belonged to the character, like eleventh would use his fez, rose had her big lips, etc, But I really recommend this book for fans of the show, you wont be disappointed ;) Thank you NetGalley for the free ARC and this is my honest opinion.

While there wasn't an exact explanation for how the paradox happened, I was still enthralled to see Rose interact with other incarnations of The Doctor post-Journey's End!

I hoped for a bit more reaction from 11 finding out she and Tentoo had a daughter. 2.) It was a shame 11 didn't get to bring her back home.

AND OMG THE TENTOOxROSE CONTENT IN THE BEGINNING AND END!! Only two small little gripes and those are as follows: 1.) I hoped for a bit more reaction from 11 finding out she and Tentoo had a daughter. 2.) It was a shame 11 didn't get to bring her back home. It would've been cool to see Tentoo and 11 interact. Overall, I friggin loved it!!

    Rose Tyler was my first Doctor Who companion and so remains my favorite, so I was incredibly excited to see this comic! It was fun to see a glimpse into the life Rose and the Doctor's clone have on the parallel Earth and then to also get to see Rose sort of become the Bad Wolf again and then interact with different regenerations of the Doctor. It's always interesting to see companions meet new Doctors who aren't "quite" the Doctor they're used to.

    Well, I think I’m going to have to finally admit - I’m just not a fan of Houser’s take on the Doctor. Any of them. Nothing really wrong here. Just nothing that really warmed me up. And that seems to be the problem with most of the stuff I’ve read from Houser. Great concepts. Meh executions. Also, I was rather disappointed in the portrayal of Eight in this. He comes across as very ineffectual, more of a sidekick or a supporting character.

    https://thebookloversboudoir.wordpres... I’m a huge fan of Doctor Who, the reboot anyway. I’ve never seen the classic series. I enjoyed Empire of the Wolf a lot. You need to have at least some knowledge of the show and the significance of Bad Wolf to fully understand the story. Like the best Doctor Who episodes that was confusing and crazy at times and a lot of fun. The full-colour illustrations are well done and impressive. https://thebookloversboudoir.wordpres...

    Two Doctors (Paul McGann & Matt Smith) & two Rose Tylers come together for an adventure in time & space. Sounds like a lot of fun, but sadly it isn't. Although it's a workmanlike story it fails to generate the excitement it should. The artwork does a decent job with the main characters, but the locations & backgrounds are simply drawn & very dull. It's one of those graphic novels that has all the right ingredients, but they don't gel to make a decent story.

    This review is for an ARC copy received from the publisher through NetGalley. This Doctor Who graphic novel featuring a story with Rose and the 8th and 11th Doctors seemed a bit odd choice at first, and those stories having taken place so long ago I was bit fuzzy on some of the details. But as the story progressed enough familiarity returned and it ultimately felt like it could have been pulled from TV episodes. Any Doctor Who fan should enjoy reading this book.

    Carrying on from the events of Doctor Who Vol. 1: Alternating Current, this story sees the Eighth Doctor from shortly before the Time War and the Eleventh Doctor shortly after Amy and Rory's departure get caught up in paradoxes caused by the adventures of the Tenth and Thirteenth Doctors. We get an interesting glimpse into Rose's life post-Series 4 and catch up with Empress Rose after her freedom from the Sea Devils. Oh, and there are Sontarans in a minor role.

    Nice seeing the 8th doctor. Rose wasn't annoying but helpful. The story moved quickly. Not a lot happened but appreciated the look at what happens with the best of intentions.
