The Devastator series of Doctor Who: Battles in Time trading cards was the fourth expansion series to the original set and followed the success of the previous sets (namely; Exterminator, Annihilator, Invader and Ultimate Monsters)
It was launched in September 2008 with a special card mounted magazine issue which included four packs of trading cards. Additional packs were also available to purchase separately.
The Devastator series consisted of a further 250 cards being numbered from 826 to 1075 featuring graphics from Series Four of the television series. (Each card also carried its particular series numbering in the bottom right corner).
The Devastator series consisted of;
- 209 (C) Common Cards
- 25 (R) Rare Cards (Foil printed, one in every pack)
- 10 (SR) Super Rare (Enhanced / embossed foil printed, found in one in every six packs)
- 6 (UR) Ultra Rare (Special feature cards with added effect including; lenticular changing images, glow in the dark and scratch 'n sniff found in one in twenty-four packs)
The much sought after, gold ticket card (of Rose Tyler possessed by the Time Vortex), remained available in every thousand packs and was of a thicker, gold foiled and unnumbered card.
Nine cards from the set, suffixed "TARDIS Crew", could be arranged side-by-side to create a continuous image of the nine pilots and passengers of the TARDIS in the Series Four finale Journey's End. From left to right, this is:
