The Doctor arrives on a space vessel called the Dreadnought, where he meets Stacy, who is running from the Cybermen. They capture the Doctor and Stacy and find out that Stacy's fiancé, Bill, has become a Cyberman. When Stacy makes him remember their friendship, he makes the ultimate sacrifice; he kills himself to stop the Cybermen. After this the Doctor and Stacy depart in the TARDIS to have many adventures.
- The Doctor is wearing his blue coat.
- Bill and Stacy planned to get married at St. Christopher's Church in Norfolk.
- This story featured a new, sleeker version of the Cybermen design, later adapted for the Cybermen that appeared in WC: Real Time (possibly due to both using artist Lee Sullivan).
- Dreadnought was the comic debut of the Eighth Doctor. He was the first incarnation since the Fourth Doctor to make his comic debut outside Doctor Who Magazine.
