The Dr. Who - bibliography

To us, on earth, the good ship Tardis appears to be an ordinary, homely blue police telephone-box with it's familiar flashing top light. But when the great door is opened, it is seen that in the Tardis our ideas of dimensions of length, breadth and thickness, of inches, and feet and yards, must be forgotten. The interior of the Tardis does not exist in our normal world of size. The small square box contains a great space-ship-laboratory, equipped with all the marvellous electronic instruments and engines with which it materialises itself wherever it's pilot commands. - Who is Dr.Who - The Dr.Who Annual 1965

Can anyone tell us if the "Dalek Book" published in 1964 was the first spin-off publication from the Doctor Who TV series which started on 23rd November 1963 ?

The good Doctor's in order were -

  • William Hartnell
  • Patrick Troughton
  • Jon Pertwee
  • Tom Baker
  • Peter Davison
  • Colin Baker
  • Sylvester McCoy

Peter Cushing played the Doctor in 2 movies made in the 60's and there has also been a big screen - made for TV - version played by Paul McGann in 1996 ....

..... it was rumoured that the next Doctor Who was to be played by Alan Davis a British comedian, then it was Tom Selleck and now the rumour is Sylvester McCoy, again!

There was a Doctor Who comic published called Doctor Who Weekly. It was brought out by Marvel and ran for quite some time until it became the Doctor Who Monthly, and then Doctor Who Magazine.

During it's time as a weekly it was mostly comic strip based, with the odd article here & there.

There was also another long running comic called Countdown (later known as TV Action) which featured Doctor Who, along with various other shows such as UFO & Mission Impossible. - William Duffy

Doctor Who Magazine, part of the same series which began in 1979 with Doctor Who Weekly, is still published by Panini UK, and they carry 7 pages of comic strip every 4 weeks. - Paul Lang

The Dalek Book, a collector's item from 1964, was indeed the first Dalek annual. (Wish I had a copy!) The following year saw the publication of a second annual, The Dalek World (quite simply one of the best annuals of the 1960's) and the year after saw The Dalek Outer Space Book hit the shelves for Christmas. The first two books feature full colour art by Richard Jennings, who was also the original artist on the Daleks strip in TV21. (He may also be the artist on the Outer Space book, but I've never seen that). - Lew Stringer

There was also a comic strip which ran within the Doctor who comic called "Absalom Daak - Dalek Killer". As far as I'm aware only one full story was ever published. The character was an ultra violent criminal, sentenced to die by being armed to the teeth and dropped onto a planet being overrun by Daleks. Being as hard as he was he topped them all and was about to make off with the Princess of the planet when she had her spine shot out (graphically I remember) by a dalek. He kept her in suspended animation and series two, I think, was cantered around him obtaining help to revive her and allies to fight the daleks. However, as the comic died so did the story. Anyone else remember this? - Graeme Simpson

Doctor Who Weekly was published week ending 17th October 1979. It became a monthly comic from issue 44 dated September 1980. It gradually developed from a comic to a magazine and changed its name to Doctor Who Magazine from issue 85 dated February 1984. >From issue 164 dated 8th September 1990 it went from being published monthly to being published every four weeks.

My father, Cyril Lambton Burn, worked as a scriptwriter and editor for Pathe Pictorial (a movie news-reel) in the late 1940s and early 1950s, and I well remember him telling me in detail about a story he and others were working on at Pathe. It concerned a grandfather who had built a time machine and was showing it to his grandchildren when one of them pushed the wrong button and away they went! A detail I recall was that the grandfather had not at that stage calibrated the controls so they had little control over where in time they would go. Does this sound familiar? It should, a film was eventually made: the first Dr. Who film with Peter Cushing. - Bruce Burn
