The first appearances of the Fourth Doctor across several mediums -- Death Flower in TV Comic, Doctor Who and the Iron Legion in Doctor Who Weekly, and Gaze of the Medusa by Titan Comics.


The first Fourth Doctor comic story was Death Flower, printed within TV Comic. Other than the main TV Comic magazine, stories would also be printed within the TV Comic annuals and the regular Doctor Who annuals.

Starting with The Duellists in 1978, all comic stories featuring the Fourth Doctor published in TV Comic were simply reprints of older comics from the range with the art altered to resemble Tom Baker. TV Comic ceased to feature Doctor Who comics in May 1979.

Five months after TV Comic stopped releasing Doctor Who comics, Doctor Who Weekly took over as the ongoing regular comic strip. The Doctor Who Weekly comic strip launched with the Doctor travelling on his own. Later a number of new as well as more familiar characters were included. These decisions were largely determined by the issue of image rights, although the writers of said comics were fond of the idea of writing the Doctor on his own.

While stories to feature the Fourth Doctor stagnated after the exit of Tom Baker from the programme, he has been occasionally featured in publications released much later. This has most recently included a five-issue comic series printed by Titan Comics.
