The Dr Who Annual   (1965)
Search for 'The Dr Who Annual' on eBay

Publisher: World Distributors

Publication Date: Annual 1965 - Annual 1985

Country: United Kingdom

Language: English

This collection of hardbound volumes mixed text stories with some comic work, generally done in the style of the TV Comic and Countdown work.

It was not published every year from its inception to its eventual demise.

It should not be confused with the US tradition of annuals, which tend to be an extra, larger-sized issue of an ongoing title. These were stand-alone "extras" which supplemented the television series, rather than commemorating the anniversary of an ongoing publication. They were therefore published under a separate license from the BBC than the one granted for the publication of, say, Doctor Who Magazine. With a few notable exceptions, they tended to be written and illustrated by people who had no connection to, or reasonable understanding of, the show. Modern fans would find little of value herein, other than their surprising value at auction.

It should also not be confused with Doctor Who Magazine's seasonal specials, The Doctor Who Yearbook, or, indeed, Doctor Who Annual, Panini's recent almost-exactly-the-same-titled version, which celebrates the 2005 television series.

These annuals are all referred to by a year which is one year later than their publication date. For instance, the "1981" annual was published in 1980.

Some of the work has been subsequently reprinted in other publications, but most of it has been all but forgotten.
