Additional notes Edit

  • This annual featured a number of behind the scenes features for the first time that included several previously unseen photographs taken from Castrovalva and the Fifth Doctor's costume design.
  • The inclusion of not one but all three of the Doctor's current companions further indicated John Nathan-Turner's influence and attempt to make the annuals more tied-in to the television series than they had previously been.
