Oblivion was the sixth volume of the Panini Publishing series of Doctor Who Magazine comic collections, and the third to feature the Eighth Doctor. It was the series' first collection of colour comic stories.

Like all in the series, it was notable for its high quality digital restoration of the comics. It was the first chance readers had of seeing the original version of the comics since they were initially published in DWM in the late-1990s and early 2000s.

Publisher's summary Edit

The Eighth Doctor clashes with a new host of enemies in this latest collection of classic adventures!

This volume features seven amazing stories: OPHIDUS, BEAUTIFUL FREAK, THE WAY OF ALL FLESH, CHILDREN OF THE REVOLUTION, ME AND MY SHADOW, UROBOROS and OBLIVION!

The Doctor and Izzy encounter Destrii, a strange alien girl on the run from a mysterious force. The meeting triggers a devasting series of events which threaten to destroy the duo's friendship – and bring about the release of a cosmic force with the power to crush every star in the universe!

Fey Truscott-Sade returns – with Shayde in tow – as our heroes battle a sentient starship, body stealers, fire-breathing rock monsters, Nazi troopers, living skeletons, a psychotic alien artist … and a very different breed of Daleks!

Plus dazzling selection of EXTRA FEATURES:

A newly-extended conclusion to the poll-winning Dalek strip CHILDREN OF THE REVOLUTION!

A bonus strip CHARACTER ASSASSIN featuring the Doctor's arch-enemy the Master!

Plus a fascinating 22-page behind-the-scenes feature in which writer Scott Gray reveals background information on the stories' origins, alongside never-before-seen sketches and character designs from artists Martin Geraghty, Lee Sullivan, John Ross and Adrian Salmon!
