Additional details Edit
- This issue (priced £1.25 UK) included a giant photo-poster featuring ‘25 Years of Adventure’ and all seven Doctors.
- Additional Input (from DWM 150) disputes the inclusion of a picture from Terror of the Zygons in the Episode Guide feature, but this is allowed as the story was originally recorded for Season 12.
- Additional Input (from DWM 150) corrects many of the credits given to T P McKenna in the interview feature. Titles - The Saint: The Angel's Eye by Harry W. Junkin, The Avengers: The Trojan Horse by Malcolm Hulke, and Noon Doomsday by Terry Nation. McKenna appeared in That'll be the Day, and 3 episodes of The Richmond Files: "Call Me the Enemy", "Do You Recognise the Woman?" and "A Man Like Me" as well as in the Blake's 7 episode "Bounty" not "Hostage". The Minder episode was wrong and the Boon episode was "Northwest Passage to Acocks Green".
