This complete full colour Doctor Who comic strip story, with excellent artwork by Gerry Haylock, appeared in issues 125 - 129 of TV Action comic and comes from the Golden Era of Doctor Who, when Jon Pertwee was the eponymous hero (Much as I like David Tennant, let's face it - he isn't up to Pertwee's standards).
The Doctor and his young friend, Tom, are sucked into a strange tornado in space. Regaining consciousness they find themselves aboard a giant biological computer that is collecting specimens of different life-forms as it travels through space - This one reminds me of The Claws of Axos.
I am trying to upload as many of these as I can onto thebox.bz for you, but life is about to get a bit more hectic for me, as the littlest Doctor Who fan has just arrived in the world (not actually from a TARDIS, but via c-section). I've already upped quite a few of these forgotten classics here on thebox.bz, so if you've missed any, there're plenty of gems.
Some people puzzle over why I upload .jpgs and not .cbrs - sorry, but that's against the rules - as I discovered to my cost.
I am grateful to Davywolf for conferring "DW Staff Approved " status upon these torrents: http://thebox.bz/forums.php?action=viewtopic&topicid=6677&page=last#100517
Once again, I would like to acknowledge the hard work of the Receptacle group for uploading the original .cbrs from which these jpgs come. A few have asked me how to get in touch with Receptacle. I am informed that they are still around, but that their .cbrs are not on-line any more:
