Not to be confused with the 1990s Marvel Comics publication, Doctor Who Classic Comics, or a line of Target Books reprints in the late 1980s.

Doctor Who Classics from IDW Publishing, is a North American title, reprinting the early Doctor Who Magazine stories, beginning with "The Iron Legion".

Overview

Like Marvel Premiere and Doctor Who (1984), IDW reprinted the stories, complete with opening and closing captions. They were also re-coloured anew. Generally, each issue of the magazine had at least two new and distinct covers: one by a current IDW artist, and one by a classic artist like Dave Gibbons.

Each issue contained 32 full colour quality printed pages, of which only 22 were actually devoted to Doctor Who reprints. The remaining 10 pages were divided between a "next issue" page, IDWords (news and interviews from IDW Publishing), and multiple pages promoting other titles.

In July 2008, IDW compiled the first half-dozen issues of Doctor Who Classics into a single graphic novel release, Doctor Who Classics Vol. 1, with a second volume scheduled for release in December 2008, and a third announced for release in May 2009. In October 2008, IDW suspended Doctor Who Classics for two months, replacing it with a specialty reprint title Grant Morrison's Doctor Who. Following the two-issue run of that special, a Doctor Who Classics Series 2 was published beginning in December 2008. As of April 2009, the Fifth Doctor's DWM comic run had begun in the pages of the magazine, and with the issue published in September 2009, the series moved into stories that had not previously been featured in the 1984 Marvel Comics series.
