Time lord fairy tales, like the title succinctly suggests, is a mashup of the Who-niverse and the good old (Western) fairy tales.

Alas, this comic does not manage to convey the feeling of a Doctor Meet-Up, and honestly for me it didn’t even convey “Doctor Who.” I suppose if this had been a TV episode or even […]
