via eBay, an original page from Episode Three of the Peter Davison story 'The Moderator', published in Doctor Who Magazine Issue 87, cover dated April 1984, drawn by Steve Dillon.
The story, written by Steve Parkhouse, sees the Doctor and his new friend Gus arrive on Celeste. a world populated by intelligent soldiers. But all is not what it seems. The soldiers are under the control of the sinister Moderator who is using the gift of Celeste to create a link to Earth. Can The Doctor stop him inhabiting another planet?
The page offered shows the amphibious Josiah Dogbolter trying to cut a deal with the Doctor for his TARDIS, which gets short shrift.
The final frame of the page is a classic of the DWM comics, in my opinion.
The The Tides of Time graphic album. The story also inspired events in The Incomplete Death's Head series, which also involved The Doctor.
The art is in good condition with no speech bubbles missing, although they have coloured with age.
