Notes Edit

  • Published in 1965, this story makes the remarkable prediction that the first manned Moon landing would occur on 20 July (which it did in real life), and was otherwise off by only one year.
  • This story is given the title of "Moonshot" in the "Comics Checklist" section of DWM 62.

Continuity Edit

  • The Doctor's first on-screen visit to the Moon was in TV: The Moonbase, two years before NASA did so in real life.
  • The Doctor later has an adventure involving the lunar-landing in TV: Day of the Moon.
  • Martha Jones and the Doctor later witness the lunar landing - twice - according to TV: Blink.
