New Book! The Dr. Who Fannual

Who merchandise is everywhere these days, capable of filling a Tardis several times over but we see very little relating to Peter Cushing’s version seen in the movies released in 1965 and 1966. During that time World Distributors Ltd started publishing Doctor Who annuals based on the television series producing them from the height of Dalek mania through to the 1980s (with the exception of 1972) but they never produced one devoted to the Cushing movies… Well now fans finally have the opportunity to add one to their collections with this beautifully designed ‘fannual’ which lovingly recreates the classic World Distributors look and is packed with stories and strips relating to Dr. Who! As the blurb indicates, it’s a “fanzine featuring an elderly gentleman who can travel through time and space in his own invention with his family and friends.” Written and illustrated by fans of the movies and is an absolute delight, I tip my hat to all responsible in its production as they did an excellent job.
Now you may have gathered that I too provided content for this book, and you would be right. Three of them in fact. Naturally, I’m always delighted to see my work published and this book is no exception, but I’m doubly pleased as it’s not only a Doctor Who related project (finally!) a Peter Cushing project but it also provided me the opportunity and pleasure of illustrating one of my wife’s stories! ‘Susan and the King’ a short story that has Susan and Dr. Who meeting Charles II during the English Civil War! Find this tale and many others contained within its 168 pages. Guaranteed to compliment any Doctor Who annual collection! They are available either in colour or black and white, hardcover or paperback! Order here.
