Additional details[]

  • Special themed issue to tie in with The Five Faces of Doctor Who repeat series on television.
  • The year is not displayed on the front cover.
  • There seems some confusion over the definition of the magazine's term 'archive' for this issue. The Krotons is singled out as an Archive feature on the cover and inside, but is treated in no more depth than the four stories featured under the heading "The Five Faces of Doctor Who". All five are archive features, but do not include any story retelling by episodes or feature credit boxes.
  • The back-up strip, Skywatch-7, is the first of a two-part story featuring the Zygons which is concluded in DWMS Winter 1981. The only reference to this is a mention on the inside contents page.
