THE AMAZING WORLD OF DOCTOR WHO...
Copyright BBC TV & TERRY NATION ESTATE
Back in the dim and distant days of September 1976, I contacted WORLD DISTRIBUTORS to enquire about the possibility of obtaining a DALEK ANNUAL they'd published the previous year. They replied in the affirmative and, after sending the requisite payment, the sought-after book, when it eventually arrived, was accompanied by a free copy of The AMAZING WORLD Of DOCTOR WHO, containing reprints of some Dalek strips from the back of TV CENTURY 21. (You know the old saying - never look a gift-Dalek in the mouth - so I didn't.)
The World Distributor Dalek reprints were reproduced from the original artwork (which was revised to cover the title and 'stop press' panels on each page), unlike some later reprintings which were merely scanned from issues of TV21. So without any further ado, enjoy an exciting adventure with The Daleks - the cheeky little rascals.
Incidentally, the first three pages are illustrated by RICHARD JENNINGS and the last two are by RON TURNER.
And below, the actual letters I received from World Distributors way back when. (Click on to enlarge, then click again.)
