Doctor Who Comics 11/2 and 11/3

As the 10th Doctor series spools out an ongoing story and the 12th Doctor is only in previews, 11 gets more-or-less standalone adventures, although it seems we have a Big Bad to deal with across them.

Issue 2 has the Doctor try to impress Alice by taking her to an unspoiled Eden of a world, only to find someone paved paradise and put up a parking lot. Issue 3 addresses the Robert Johnson story (and how David Jones became David Bowie, with serial numbers lightly painted over). Both features ServeYouInc,, a sinister future (and apparently time-travelling) corporation the monetises people’s fondest wishes. And makes them like zombies as well, because that’s not really scary enough by itself.

(Oddly enough, Silver Surfer issue 6 also has the hero take his companion to the most perfect planet in the universe.)
