Legacy Edit

Dan Dare's adventures opposite the Mekon were chronicled by the 1960s in the British children's comic Eagle. (PROSE: Time and Relative)

In 1977, Dame Emily Shaw compared the interior of the TARDIS to something out of Dan Dare. (AUDIO: The Cloisters of Terror) On his first adventure in the TARDIS, Oliver Harper similarly compared the experience to "something out of Dan Dare". (AUDIO: The Cold Equations)

In October 1987, Niles Bunbury commented that Skaro looked like "something from a Dan Dare annual". (AUDIO: We Are The Daleks)

One account suggested that Dan Dare's adventure were wholly fictional: when Jason talked about how fictional characters were immortal, the Seventh Doctor completed his argument by noting that otherwise Dan Dare would be on his deathbed. (PROSE: Conundrum)
