You may be looking for the titular comic story.

The Glorious Dead was the fifth volume of the Panini Publishing series of Doctor Who Magazine comic collections. It was the second to feature the Eighth Doctor.

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, monochromatic version of the comics since they were initially published in DWM in the late 1990s.

Publisher's summary Edit

Collected comic strips from the pages of Doctor Who Magazine!

The Eighth Doctor faces new perils in this bumper collection of classic comic adventures!

This volume features eight amazing stories: THE FALLEN, UNNATURAL BORN KILLERS, THE ROAD TO HELL, THE COMPANY OF THIEVES, THE GLORIOUS DEAD, THE AUTONOMY BUG, HAPPY DEATHDAY and TV ACTION!

The Doctor and his best friend Izzy are joined in the TARDIS by Kroton, a Cyberman with a heart and soul! The action comes faster than ever as our heroes encounter genocidal Sontarans, vicious space pirates, demented robots, mad gods, deadly samurai warriors ... and the actor Tom Baker!

But the ultimate challenge is approaching: an epic, star-spanning battle that will decide the fate of all reality! An old friend is waiting to be reunited with the Doctor, while an even older enemy is lurking in the shadows of time and space ...

PLUS two bonus stories from the early days of Doctor Who Weekly, THROWBACK: THE SOUL OF A CYBERMAN and SHIP OF FOOLS, telling the origins of Kroton the Cyberman! AND a six page behind-the-scenes feature where writers Scott Gray, Alan Barnes and Adrian Salmon reveal background information on the stories' origins alongside never-befor-seen sketches and character designs from Salmon and fellow artists Martin Geraghty and Roger Langridge!

AN ESSENTIAL COLLECTION FOR FANS OF DOCTOR WHO AND CLASSIC BRITISH COMICS!
