Additional details Edit

  • With a cover heading of "Doctor Who Summer Special: The Best of Doctor Who Weekly", this first Summer Special offered no new material except for a cover by Dave Gibbons. Its material had all been seen before in the pages of the parent magazine.
  • This was the first of many reprintings of the popular comic strip compilation of "Doctor Who and the Iron Legion", Marvel Comics' first Doctor Who comic strip story. Unlike most subsequent "reprintings" — including the one in the 1985 Summer Special — this one was al monochromatic reprint rather than a colourized adaptation.
  • This standard sized magazine was printed in June 1980 and had a cover price of 40p (UK)
  • This issue had the indicia title of Dr Who Special.
