The Daleks - Fish and chips, the Royal Family, Doctor Who and the Daleks: British side by side. If Doctor Who ended tomorrow, for years to come we would still see children playing at being Daleks, just as they did in the lengthy gap - five years - between Evil of the Daleks and The Day of the Daleks. What made them quite so popular no one knows; perhaps they fill a gap that most fantasy creations in the 1960s were unable to. They made their creator, Terry Nation, a rich man and their designer, Ray Cusick, little better off, as they swept across Britain in a wave of merchandising. By Philip Dickson.
Travelling Companions - Susan Foreman the first of the companions makes a fitting subject for the start of this new series on the characters who have shared the TARDIS with the Doctor. By Richard Marson.
Read on Writing - There are few people connected with the behind-the-scenes evolution of Doctor Who with whom writer and script-editor Anthony Read hasn't worked. Earlier this year, he told Richard Marson how he became involved with the programme during Tom Baker's era.
Colin Baker Interviewed - In Issue 111, we asked readers to send us questions they'd like to put to Colin Baker. Penny Holme put a selection of them to him recently, during a break from rehearsals.
