Alan Moore talks Doctor Who!

Vworp Vworp! Vol. 3 (cover by Martin Geraghty).
From editor Colin Brockhurst:
Volume 3 of Vworp Vworp!: exclusive in-depth interview with world’s greatest comics writer Alan Moore, free Dalek CD, new comic strips, and much more!
We’re back and this time with a special bumper 208-page edition! In this issue, we explore Alan Moore’s Doctor Who backup strips, published in Doctor Who Weekly and Monthly in 1980 and 1981. Featuring the Cybermen, the Autons and the Time Lords, these strips were not only Alan’s very first professional work, but would go on to influence both comics and Doctor Who in ways he could never have foreseen.
Here, Alan recalls his 1980 tale, Black Legacy: “I decided that if I couldn’t use Daleks then the next biggest Doctor Who enemy would probably be the Cybermen... As I understood it, the main part of the Cybermen ethos was efficiency, and a kind of a hygiene. Physical and mental disease would be completely unknown to the Cybermen. So I thought, what if there was something that could reintroduce these forgotten terrors to this race that has evolved beyond the fear of mental and physical illness?”
