Doctor Who - Nova comic strip ( DW Staff Approved)
TV Comic issues 1133-1138, 1st Sept - 6th October 1973
Writer and artist unknown
Jon Pertwee as The Doctor
This complete Doctor Who comic strip from TV Comic, featuring the face of Jon Pertwee as The Doctor, ran while the programme was off air.
This was certainly the best thing about TV Comic and looked very out of place among the Tom and Jerry style stuff of the time. It was very well drawn and the stories were often as entertaining as those we'd see on TV.
The TARDIS is directed by the Time Lords into Earth's future where The Doctor discovers that the world is now ruled by children with adults as their slaves. The children's leader, the genius Oswald, attempts to use his sophisticated electronic eye to interrogate The Doctor. When The Doctor resists the device and refuses to reveal the secret of the TARDIS, Oswald is forced to condemn him to death for fear of his own failure undermining his leadership.
Having formerly been in Countdown Comic, the Doctor Who comic strip now returned to TV Comic - where it looked very out of place among the Tom and Jerry type of stuff that otherwise filled its pages.
My thanks to the original scanners for their hard work and to Davveywolf for permission to upload. I originally uploaded this story in jpg format some time ago, but a few people requested it in pdf format.
My third attempt to get this one to work. Sorry, I've tried my best - both previous ones looked fine before I uploaded them, but appeared damaged when downloaded.
