The Flood was the seventh volume of the Panini Publishing series of Doctor Who Magazine comic collections, and the fourth and last to feature the Eighth Doctor. In included those Eighth Doctor DWM strips with latest release dates — namely, those in which the Doctor was travelling alone or with Destrii.

Not requiring digital restoration due to the fact that it had been digitally produced in the first place, the collection instead featured newly extended endings to the comic strips Sins of the Fathers and The Flood, previously shortened by the page limit of the original strip. It was the first chance readers had of seeing the original version of the comics since they were first published in the mid-2000s. Furthermore, The Flood was notable for its comparatively extensive "special features", which revealed for the first time that then-incoming Doctor Who producer Russell T Davies had given DWM the option of depicting the "official" regeneration between the Eighth and Ninth Doctors.
