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.

Additional information[]

  • This issues cover features artwork by X, which was also included as a free poster. It was priced at the new, higher price of £2.25 (UK) but with an increase to 52 regular pages. This issue also saw more colour photos and features.
  • The Archive feature is redesigned and moved to the centre eight pages so it could be detached and filed.
  • The new font and typeset used on the opening Gallifrey Guardian/ Matrix pages was not popular and soon dropped.
  • Andrew Pixley introduces a new run of the Daleks comic strip from the beginning, reproduced in full as they originally appeared, including STOP PRESS! headlines.
  • The cover tease for the comic story refers to it as "A new graphic adventure!"
  • On the copyright page of the magazine (usually page 3) is a box of very small text. The end of this text reads "Caught in a time storm, Ace's bed decided that it was a thoroughly bad day to be a piece of inanimate furniture bought from an MFI catalogue..."
