Comic content


  • A Brief Encounter by John Lucarotti and illustrated by Colin Howard. Though untitled in this issue, it gained the title The Meeting from its reprint in the 1997 Doctor Who Yearbook. Because the feature debuted in this issue, and readers were unfamiliar with the prose masthead, some contemporary readers thought that Brief Encounter was the title of the story, a name by which this particular tale still is referred.
