Fourth Doctor First Appearances

The first appearances of the Fourth Doctor across several mediums -- Death Flower in TV Comic, Doctor Who and the Iron Legion in Doctor Who Weekly, and Gaze of the Medusa by Titan Comics.

Overview Edit

Fourth Doctor comic strip stories have been published in TV Comic, Doctor Who Magazine and magazines published by Titan Comics.

History Edit

The first Fourth Doctor comic story was Death Flower, printed within TV Comic. Other than the main TV Comic magazine, stories would also be printed within the TV Comic annuals and the regular Doctor Who Annuals. Starting with The Sky Warrior, all comic stories featuring the Fourth Doctor were simply reprints of older comics from the range with the art altered to resemble Tom Baker.

Doctor Who Weekly took over an ongoing regular comic strip five months after the conclusion of reprints ceased being featured in TV Comic in 1978. The comics of this era were much closer to the tone and pacing of a television story, and tend to be more commonly acknowledged by fans of the show.

Central to the concept of Doctor Who Magazine (or Doctor Who Weekly as it was then), was to offer more mature comic strip adventures than had previously appeared.

The Doctor Who Magazine comic strip launched with the Doctor travelling on his own. Later a number of new as well as more familiar characters were included. These decisions were largely determined by the issue of image rights, although the writers of said comics were fond of the idea of writing the Doctor on his own.

While stories to feature the Fourth Doctor stagnated after the exit of Tom Baker from the program, he has been occasionally featured in publications released much later. This has most recently included a five-issue comic series printed by Titan Comics.
