Doctor Who in the Countdown Annual 1972



I bought this a month ago in Broadstairs, and am now able to share with you both the exciting two-page documentary on the making of The Dæmons and an exclusive Doctor Who comic strip story.



Here's the documentary:

Hooper was evidently unwilling to back down over his belief that the car was called Betsy. Nevertheless, it's a good piece of boy's paper journalism in the Eagle tradition.

Just in case anyone didn't bother to follow the links, the comic story's parallels to a TV story from a few years later are striking.

I wonder if this "Pete Grimwade" will ever do anything important.

If Dennis Hooper had visited the earlier story, he'd have met "John Turner" doing the same job!
