Notes Edit

  • The plot borrows heavily from the 1941 Isaac Asimov story "Nightfall".
  • The comic strip is not in colour, but monochromatic, with pages 1, 4 and 5 with purple shading and pages 1, 2, 3 , 6 and 7 with blue shading.
  • While Ben and Polly refer to the Doctor as "Doctor", the linking text refers to him as "Dr Who".
  • This comic seems to have been written with William Hartnell in mind for the Doctor. The Doctor (with the likeness of Patrick Troughton) calls Ben and Polly "children" and is mistaken for an "elder".
