The 1968 Dr Who Annual was the third Doctor Who annual to be released, and the first to feature the Second Doctor. It was unusually anachronistic upon publication. Despite being released after the arrival of Victoria Waterfield on television, it featured the TARDIS team that existed for only one serial about a year before — that of the Second Doctor, Ben and Polly. It was released in September 1967.

It is also possible that Ron Smethurst contributed some illustrations, as well, though no formal credit was given him.
