Flashback was a Seventh Doctor comic story printed in DWMS Winter 1992.

Summary[edit | edit source]

The Seventh Doctor gives Benny a lesson in Gallifreyan history using a 3-D holo-simulation. They watch as Magnus attempts to drain the power from a huge sphere of Artron energy which has been brought back from the Time Vortex. Magnus is strongly opposed by his former friend Thete who, when it is revealed the Artron energy is alive, uses a Chancellery Guard's gun to end the draining and set the energy being free.

The holo-simulation ends. The Doctor says Thete was commended by the High Council for his actions; Magnus never forgave him and the friendship between the two was ended forever. Then he says that it has been enough ancient history for one day; the past will always be there, but he far prefers the future.
