IDW’s first volume of the collected DOCTOR WHO OMNIBUS is a compact but substantial little tome gathering two long story arcs (“Agent Provacateur” and “The Forgotten”) and six one-shots that appeared in single issue form featuring, for the most part, the adventures of the 10th Doctor. The production values on the collection are reasonably high, with a fairly sturdy card cover and no fewer than 416 glossy pages. At the cost of $29.99, it’s the kind of book that would probably give your budget a moment’s pause, weighing the quality versus the dosh. What may seal the deal are those one-shots, which are the particular strength of the work. If purchased as issues, they would nearly add up to the cost of the book, nearly, and there’s plenty in the one shots to inspire a WHO fan to read them, and to want to keep in their collection.
