November 23, 1963: A day that changed the world forever.

That day saw the broadcast debut of Doctor Who, which was to become the longest-running science fiction series on television.

And now, 50 years later, we pay tribute to one of the greatest pop-culture heroes of all time with this special series, which tells an epic adventure featuring all 11 incarnations of the intrepid traveler through time and space known simply as... the Doctor.
(NetGalley Synopsis)

As a big Doctor Who fan, I was thrilled to see this title come up on NetGalley, and on the whole it was an enjoyable read. This first volume centres on the first three doctors, providing a short story for each and ending on a cliff-hanger, which will no doubt be picked up in volume two.

The look of the book is great, but I had difficulty reading it as the DRM didn't allow me to open the file with Acrobat Reader and I therefore couldn't zoom in to easily read the text, meaning I had to squint to make out the dialogue.

But that aside, it was good fun and I hope I'll get chance to read the next volume, too.
