This is one of the few times any Doctor Who comic (regardless of country of origin) ever enjoyed an original painted cover. To be sure, Doctor Who Classic Comics frequently used painted covers, but they were largely done to specifically mimic a still photograph from the television show. In this case, the design is unique and story-relevant.

In 2008, this cover was used as the basis for a drawn, variant cover for Doctor Who Classics #3.

When the Doctor realizes that free-flowing emotions are the antidote to the Bloodbugs, he passes his discovery on to Z.E.P.O. They and their followers produce so much emotion that the Bloodbugs are overwhelmed. Simultaneously, he appeals to the Brains Trust to allow the removal of the emotional ban. They agree, considering the emergency, but their "chief of police", the Moderator General, considers this an act of treason. He executes them all and then is presumably consumed by Bloodbugs.

He, though, is one of the Bloodbugs' last meals. Emotion spreads rapidly through the city, and the Boodbugs are de-activated. WIth no government left standing, and the Bloodbugs deactivated, Z.E.P.O. (and, for that matter, Big Hate) have been victorious in their revolution. Now free, the citizens of Zom celebrate the one they call the "Great Emoter" by choosing to emulate the Doctor. The whole city is shown to be wearing long scarves just like his as the Doctor dematerializes in the TARDIS.

Parts 5-8 of the original printing. Again, this is a censored version of the original title.

Illustrated text piece trying to at once introduce readers to the Fourth Doctor's televised era, and to announce the coming of the Fifth Doctor--something that had already happened in Britain.
