On the Web Planet, also known as Doctor Who on the Web Planet or Doctor Who and the Zarbi on the Web Planet, was a TV Comic story featuring Dr. Who, John and Gillian. Notably it was the only TVC First Doctor story to be given an official title, due to the previous story's preview, as all other titles were invented later by comic strip historians. (DWCC 1)
