Additional details Edit
- This issue's comic strip is a reprint of a strip that first featured in The Incredible Hulk Presents.
- Additional Input (from DWM 159): In the "Bonzer Doc!" feature, the photo was actually from Marco Polo: "Assassin at Peking", not from a cut scene in "Rider from Shang-Tu". In the "Matrix Data Bank", lyrics printed for the song in Ghost Light should read, "Next Monday I will come and bring you such a lot of nuts", not, "Next month ...". Corrections to the "Episode Guide" include Barry Letts was not executive producer, Visitation should have read The Visitation, Transmission dates for Time-Flight were 22.3.82 and 30.3.82. And finally the script editors on K9 and Company: A Girl's Best Friend were Anthony Root and Eric Saward.
- This issue priced £1.50 (UK) featured the Seventh Doctor and Ace courtesy of Sue Moore and Stephen Mansfield (caricatures) with photography by Stephen Hampshire and set by Guy Stevens.
- "Matrix Data Bank" this issue includes a (continuing) list of the Doctor eating and drinking (from the Fourth Doctor). See also DWM 145
