Additional details[]

  • This special was a one-off tie-in to the launch of the Doctor Who Movie. As a stand alone special it had none of the characteristics of previous Marvel Comics releases.
  • Priced at £1.99 (UK), and aimed a much younger readership than the regular Doctor Who Magazine, it was aimed at new as well as regular viewers of the series. It was a staple bound full-colour, heavy paper quality title featuring the new Doctor Who logo on the cover.
