Doctor Who, the BBC series about a face-changing alien time traveller that started in 1963, has been adapted to comics from very early on.
- Doctor Who Annuals have been published since 1965.
- The first weekly Doctor Who comic strip was in TV Comic from 1965 to 1970, starring William Hartnell's first Doctor, Patrick Troughton's second, and Jon Petwee's third. Stories were written by Roger Noel Cook and Alan Fennell, with art by Neville Main, Bill Mevin and John Canning.
- A spin-off, "The Dalek Chronicles", which did not feature the Doctor, ran in TV Century 21 in 1965-67. Although they were credited to Dalek creator Terry Nation, the scripts were written by David Whitaker. Art was by Richard Jennings, Eric Eden and Ron Turner.
- The Doctor Who strip moved Countdown (later TV Action) in 1971-73, featuring Pertwee's third Doctor, with scripts by Dennis Hooper and Dick O'Neill, and art by Harry Lindfield, Frank Langford, Gerry Haylock and Jim Baikie.
- The strip returned to TV Comic from 1973 to 1979, featuring Pertwee's third Doctor and Tom Baker's fourth, drawn by Gerry Haylock, Martin Asbury and John Canning. In 1978-79 reprints of second and third Doctor stories were re-edited to feature the fourth Doctor by Canning.
