This is a collection of the Doctor Who comic strips from 1979-80 featuring Tom Baker as the Fourth Doctor, originally published in the first 38 issues of Doctor Who Monthly; all inked and drawn by Dave Gibbons, but five different stories, of which the first and third are presented as by "Pat Mills and John Wagner", the second and fourth as by "John Wagner and Pat Mills", and the fifth is by Steve Moore. The presentation of the material is OK, but I would have liked a bit more information about the first (and subsequent) dates of publication.

The first and third stories, "The Iron Legion" and "The Star Beast", stand out as the best - I remember them vividly from first reading more than a quarter-century ago - and from what is said in the introduction I guess Pat Mills, who was also the first editor of 2000 AD, deserves the credit for that. They are pretty good examples of the comics medium, and while the Doctor of the drawn page isn't always exactly like Tom Baker's portrayal in appearance and manner, I think that the two "Mills and Wagner" stories stand on their own merits.
