Notes

TVC 674 Front Cover Advertising Doctor Who

The cover to TVC 674, proudly declaring the start to the Doctor Who comic run which would last until 1979.

  • The first issue of this story was printed in TV 674. The cover to said issue advertised the narrative on the cover, stating "Starts today! Doctor Who".
  • This was the very first Doctor Who comic strip. It opened with the following narrative: "In the far distant future, the Thains have lived happily and peacefully for many years. But one day, strange, menacing creatures hover over the city..."
  • The very first words were spoken not by the Doctor himself but by the villains of the story, the Kleptons: "We are the Kleptons! We will take over your cities and your land! You Thains will be our slaves!"
  • The very first words spoken by the Doctor (who does not appear until the third panel of the second page) were, "You must be John and Gillian! How nice to meet you!"
  • This story was reprinted in DWCC 2 in colour.
