Spoilers are precisely defined here. Rules vary by the story's medium. Info from television stories can't be added here until after the top or bottom of the hour, British time, closest to the end credits roll on BBC One. Therefore, fans in the Americas who are sensitive to spoilers should avoid Tardis on Sundays until they've seen the episode.

Returning to a regular-sized issue, this Special was printed in December 1984 and had a cover price of 95p (UK).
The cover used a publicity shot of the First Doctor in the TARDIS.
