    Doctor Who: Podshock - Episode 107
    Authored by: DarthSkeptical on Monday, April 21 2008 @ 06:52 AM EDT
    Yeah, Grace's appearances in the pages of the DWM comic strip are all very well-judged, in my view. It's not just the stunt-return of a companion, but the kickoff to what might be called the "second season" of black-and-white Eighth Doctor strips. It comes after a good chunk of "introductory" Eighth Doctor/Izzy stories, and begins a long story arc that culminates in the end of the black-and-white era in DWM.

    She appears "properly" in only one story, "The Fallen", but pops back a couple of times afterward, including a brief appearance in the Eighth Doctor's final story.

    What's great about "The Fallen" is that it's a direct sequel to the TVM, and it prefigured the kind of adult questions with which Sarah Jane challenged the Tenth Doctor in "School Reunion". It's definitely worth a read, and is perhaps one of the best DWM stories of the black-and-white era. I'd recommend getting the graphic novel, The Glorious Dead, if you want to read it. The cliffhanger ending will drive you crazy if you just read "The Fallen", alone. You might as well have the complete story.

    As an aside, I'd slightly correct previous posters who suggested Grace, like Martha, was working for UNIT in the story. In fact,; she was attached to a medical research project being carried out by MI6. The confusion is understandable, however, as even the Doctor assumes she's working for UNIT, until Grace corrects him.
