Mr Nobody was a comic strip originally published in the 2006 Doctor Who Annual.
The Vandos Tribunal teleports Phil Tyson to their ship to execute him for crimes committed against the Vandosians. The crimes were committed by the Vandosian Shogalath, who has re-incarnated into Phil Tyson. The Doctor and Rose arrive and help Phil escape, but not before damaging the ship's weapons so their ship will self-destruct when they try to fire.
The Doctor reveals to Phil that the crimes Shogalath committed were spreading peace to the Vandosians and beginning an enlightened age for them. The Doctor compared him to Gandhi or "King". After being dropped off, Phil heads off a bolder man, now knowing the future isn't something you wait for, it's something to find.
