Eleventh Doctor Enters Virtual Reality in Latest Comic
Art imitates life in Titan’s latest Doctor Who comic tale.
A few weeks after Peter Capaldi’s Twelfth Doctor faced murderous monks controlling a simulated world, the eleventh Time Lord incarnation and his companions enter a similar virtual construct.
Flying through the Antrozenus Zone, the Doctor, Alice, and the Sapling happen upon a “whopping great spaceship of unknown origin … drifting, powered down, and abandoned.”
So, of course, they land the TARDIS inside to investigate.
An excitable Doctor leads the trio through the ship, from one impossible alien world to another, across mysterious portal-y thresholds.
“We’re stepping through a transdimensional doorway on a bridge over a river inside an alien spaceship that shouldn’t exist,” he says, throwing caution to the wind. “What else is there to do, but proceed?”
The bigger-on-the-inside UFO even houses a red giant—a dying star in the final stages of stellar evolution. But it’s the Dementor-like Thrakes that really catch their attention.
Memory parasites that you “don’t want to go bothering … down a dark alley” are coming for the Doctor and his friends. The flying skeletons, however, are not sucking on the gang’s brains, but rather eroding the “virtual construct” into which the unsuspecting travelers stumbled.
Making a quick escape, the Doctor discovers what appears to be a cryogenically frozen alien, and “suddenly everything becomes clear.”
Part one of “The Memory Feast” was written by George Mann, with art by I.N.J. Culbard. The 32-page mystery is on sale now for $3.99; find out what happens next when the second half hits shelves in July.
And let the speculation begin over what or who that shadowy figure is, materializing just out of view of the Doctor, Alice, and the Sapling. Is it a harbinger of good or evil? Will it help or harm Team TARDIS? Sound off in the comments section below.
