The Tides of Time The Stockbridge Horror

Stars Fell on Stockbridge was the Doctor Who Magazine comic story that introduced the recurring character of Maxwell Edison. It also technically introduced Stockbridge, since the village had not been named in the previous story. By firmly placing Wells Wood — which had appeared in the last story — in a place called Stockbridge, The Tides of Time was retconned as having occurred in Stockbridge.

It was further notable for being the last DWM comic drawn by Dave Gibbons, the magazine's main artist since the first issue, and for having its essential plot details dramatised in a flashback in the audio story Castle of Fear. It was thus one of the few DWM comics adapted into another medium.

It has been reprinted a number of times, and a couple of modified panels from the story were later included in the Tenth Doctor story, The Stockbridge Child.

Summary Edit
