Notes Edit

  • The story features a trope that was extraordinarily common in World Distributors' annuals: that of the Doctor meeting an "old friend" of whom the readers were not previously aware. The trope allowed the writer to get away with depicting a close relationship with the Doctor without having to explain why. This shorthand was extremely valuable to World Distributors authors, given the brevity of the stories.
