Eighth Doctor comic stories were published in Radio Times and Doctor Who Magazine.

Overview Edit

Two separate series of original comic strips featuring the Eighth Doctor (and thus the likeness of actor Paul McGann) were published during the character's original tenure. The Radio Times published a weekly comic strip for a time. There was also the standard Doctor Who Magazine strip. The two series introduced brand-new companions, although the Eighth Doctor's only on-screen companion, Grace Holloway, also appeared twice. There were also cameo appearances by companions from past DWM series. The Master was also resurrected.

During the latter period of the DWM's comic stories the stories switched from black and white strips to full colour.

One of the strip's most noted fans was Russell T Davies, the future executive producer and head writer of the revived Doctor Who series. Davies had proposed that the magazine's strip regenerate McGann's Doctor at the conclusion of The Flood. Whilst a draft was prepared to include the regeneration, the idea was abandoned as the magazine team had reservations about taking such an important element from the television series should McGann ever be used in the series for flashback purposes. Eventually the decision was taken to simply end The Flood on a note similar to Survival, with the Eighth Doctor and Destrii's later adventures left a mystery to the readers.
