September Books 3) The Doctor Who Annual 1974

This is a bit of an improvement from the previous annual: most of the stories are well told and make sense (even if the first two have basically the same plot) and the artwork looks more like the characters - Pertwee's Doctor again particularly good, Jo not quite as good (but better than last year) and Brigadier and Master seen only obscurely. The non-fiction filler material is particularly low-grade, with the feature on Christmas in 2003 oddly memorable. The best story, oddly enough, is "Menace of the Molags", the second of the two strips, both of which credited to one Steve Livesey (at least the art is), which riffs off both The Dæmons and Clarke's Childhood's End but comes to a different conclusion.
