The 10th issue of Doctor Who Weekly had a cover date of 19 December 1979. The cover is somewhat notable, as the image of Davros was flipped to ensure he faced inwards, leaving him with a normal left hand, where it should have been the right. Further down, the cover misspells the word "revolution", sporting "revolutution" in its stead.
