You may be looking for the titular comic story.

The Tides of Time was the only volume of the Panini Publishing series of Doctor Who Magazine comic collections that featured the Fifth Doctor. Like all in the series, it was notable for its high quality digital restoration of the comics. It was the first chance readers had of seeing the original, monochromatic version of the comics since they were first published in DWM.

Publisher's summary[edit | edit source]

The complete run of Fifth Doctor comic strips from the pages of Doctor Who Monthly!

The travelling Time Lord has regenerated – and he's back in this third collection of classic comic-strips!

Join the heroic Fifth Doctor in his complete DWM strip collection – six incredible out-of-this-world adventures from the pen of Steve Parkhouse: THE TIDES OF TIME, STARS FELL ON STOCKBRIDGE, THE STOCKBRIDGE HORROR, LUNAR LAGOON, 4-DIMENSIONAL VISTAS and THE MODERATOR!

In these mind-bending adventures through time, space and alternative realities, the Doctor finds himself up against old enemies – the Ice Warriors and the Meddling Monk – plus an incredible array of new foes – including the demonic Melanicus, the money-grabbing Josiah W Dogbolter, trigger-happy Time Lord Tubal Cain, and a ghostly presence aboard his own TARDIS!

Joined by the mysterious Matrix agent Shayde, UFO-spotter Max Edison and time-warped GI Gus Goodman, the Doctor has to contend with threats to the universe, to his own freedom and even to the lives of his companions ...

Featuring stunning artwork from the award-winning DAVE GIBBONS (Watchmen), plus MARK AUSTIN (Judge Dredd) and STEVE DILLION (The Punisher) and scripts from 2000AD's STEVE PARKHOUSE – plus a bonus Fourth Doctor strip by PAUL NEARY – these classic comics have been digitally restored for the twenty-first century and are reprinted for the very first time in their original format!
