DOCTOR WHO MAGAZINE TRAVELS BACK IN TIME TO THE SIZZLING 1970s...
There's a great free gift available with the February issue of
DOCTOR WHO MONTHLY (#508) - a complete adventure of
the good Doctor, first published in weekly instalments back in 1972.
The mag also contains an extremely interesting and entertaining in-
terview with TERRENCE DICKS, script editor during perhaps
the most popular decade in the BBC TV show's history.
Was it really 45 years ago I read these stories in the pages of
COUNTDOWN? I guess so, but it only seems like a couple or so
years ago at most. I've read them since then of course, in MARVEL
U.K.'s DOCTOR WHO CLASSIC COMICS, published monthly in
the 1990s. In this new reprinting, they're described as being 'cleaned
up', but whether it was done for this outing or the previous one isn't
stated. The pages do look good, but, oddly, the original spine
crease is still visible in the magazine's centrespread.
A minor oversight however, and don't let it put you off pur-
chasing this ish and reliving one of The Doctor's greatest comic
strip adventures featuring his greatest foes - The DALEKS!
Available now in WHS, and all good newsagents.
