The Doctors, Amys, Rorys, and Lisas square off against the Sontarans, but the ladies discover the true plot. With Rory (one of them) leading the charge, the heroes soon turn Sontarans into allies to battle the real threat. At the end, Kevin is restored and asks to join the TARDIS crew on their adventures.

What they got right: This is a comic with a guy in a cowboy outfit riding a robot dinosaur and leading a battle charge with Excalibur. While I shouldn’t have to say more than this, the story the typical good stuff we’ve come to expect from Lee.

What they got wrong: I would have rather seen Lisa join the crew, but robot dinosaur? That has to score points somewhere, but one would hope he gets downsized or I can foresee a few problems in the future.

Recommendation: Another great arc, and worth the time and money of any Whovian.

Why Rory is awesome!
