One of the odd peculiarities of Doctor Who is that sometimes the Doctor disappears. Every so often, someone else will take up the lead role and, owing to the genius of those writing for the series, such stories are often just as good as those where our hero is in every single scene.

In its early days, the Doctor Who Magazine comic strip also absented the Doctor on occasion. And these so-called ‘back-up strips’ spawned their own memorable characters – not least of which is Abslom Daak, Dalek Killer!

Featuring the work of comic book legends Steve Moore and David Lloyd, this volume gathers together thrilling tales of the Daleks, the Cybermen and the Silurians.
