The 155th issue of Doctor Who Magazine had a cover date of December 1989. It was the final issue of the magazine to be on the news stands in the month when an episode of the 1963 version of Doctor Who debuted. In other words, it was the current issue of DWM when Survival wrapped on BBC1 and the cancellation of the series went into effect. Though its cover was actually a reference to the issue's comic story, Nemesis of the Daleks, it came to be read in later years as fitting for the removal of Doctor Who from the airwaves.
