May Books 12) Doctor Who Annual 1984

I felt the stories in this annual had a slightly more didactic edge to them than usual - bringing peace through negotiations, diagrams of how osmosis works, a story about exporting criminals from which Tegan is mysteriously absent. No comic strip, for the first time, but two pieces about Who continuity - the annual starts with a review of the five Doctors so far and there's a quiz as well - and an interview with two of the designers. And the Brigadier seems to have rejoined UNIT (Turlough is also in that story, "The Nemertines", so it's definitely set after Mawdryn Undead). Another decent enough effort, anyway.
