50 years of Who: 1971

1971:

TV
Terror of the Autons
The Mind of Evil
The Claws of Axos
Colony in Space
The Dæmons

(This is the only year since 1964 in which no new Doctor Who book was published, not even an annual.)

The first Who from 1971 that I encountered: My first contemporaneous memory of Who is not from any of the the usual media: I clearly recall the great Sugar Smacks promotion of 1971 (I would have been 4). The first TV story from this year that I watched was Terror of the Autons, fairly late into my post-2005 catchup.

My favourite Who from 1971: Terror of the Autons, because of the introduction of the Master and Jo (and to a lesser extent Mike). I know this is slightly heresy; there's a good case also for The Dæmons.

Moving swiftly on from: Pigbin Josh.

So, what was your favourite of the above? What is the best bit? (And if you like, what is the worst bit?)

The reshowing of the Daemons in the early nineties was the first time I saw any Dr Who so it holds a very special place in my heart.

I'm very fond of the Daemons, and also of its novelisation, which I reckon is one of the best of the Targets. Though I am possibly biased, given that I find the Master disguised as a Vicar an irresistible concept.

I quite agree with you about Pigbin Josh.

The novelisation is indeed very very good, safely in my top 5 novelisations, and it's one of those cases where I was actually a bit disappointed on finally seeing the original story because it didn't quite match up to the pictures in my mind. The other two Who books that I have read by Letts are also very enjoyable. It's a shame he didn't write more.
