Additional Notes Edit
- Priced at £7.99, (UK) this annual had a page count reduced from the previous year's bumper release.
- Attached to the inside back cover is a large double-sided poster featuring the Eleventh Doctor on one side and a montage of monsters on the reverse (mostly Eleventh Doctor encounters but also Slitheen, Davros and shop dummy Autons).
- Frontispiece shows landscape at sea.
- Also included is a page advertising AudioGO audio releases The Gemini Contagion, Ring of Steel, The Runaway Train, The Jade Pyramid and new audio release Doctor Who and the Ribos Operation
- The text story Snow White and the Seven Keys to Doomsday is a reference to the 1970s stage play Doctor Who and the Daleks in Seven Keys to Doomsday. The story itself is referenced in the televised episode Night Terrors which aired a few weeks after the annual was published; however, at the time the book was compiled, Night Terrors was scheduled to air before the annual's publication.
