The FloodNow travelling alone, the Doctor finds himself facing an outlandish line-up of aliens, monsters and ne’er-do-wells – from a lovelorn robot to murderous football managers, from a psychotic hippo to an urban legend of old London town! But that’s nothing to the trouble in store when an old enemy crosses his path – and they both find themselves battling the deadly Cybermen for the future of the human race…

Digitally restored and retouched comic strips, plus an incredible selection of bonus features:

• Newly-extended conclusions to “Sins of the Fathers” and “The Flood”!

• A 20-page behind-the-scenes feature in which writers Scott Gray and Gareth Roberts reveal the background and origins to each story, alongside never-before-seen sketches from artists Martin Geraghty, Roger Langridge, John Ross, Mike Collins, Anthony Williams and Adrian Salmon!

• The original illustrated pitch document by Scott Gray outlining Destrii’s future as the Doctor’s new companion!

• “Flood Barriers”: learn about the regeneration that never was in an eye-opening 8-page feature by Clayton Hickman on the new TV series’ effect on the comic strip, with comments from Doctor Who showrunner Russell T Davies!

• Plus, in full, the alternative, unused script for Part Eight of “The Flood”!

An essential collection for fans of Doctor Who and classic British comics!
