Additional details Edit

  • With a cover heading of "Doctor Who Summer Special: The Best of Doctor Who Weekly", this first Summer Special offered no new material except for a cover by Dave Gibbons. Its material had all been seen before in the pages of the parent magazine.
  • This was the first of many reprintings of the popular comic strip compilation of "The Iron Legion", Marvel Comics' first Doctor Who comic strip story. Unlike most subsequent "reprintings" — including the one in the 1985 Summer Special — this one was al monochromatic reprint rather than a colourized adaptation.
  • This standard sized magazine was printed in June 1980 and had a cover price of 40p (UK)
  • This issue had the indicia title of Dr Who Special.
