Doctor Who Magazine’s guide to the year that gave us the Master is out now! It’s Doctor Who Chronicles: 1971

The new 116-page bookazine in the Chronicles range from the makers of Doctor Who Magazine celebrates an unforgettable era in the show’s history. The success of the first episodes starring Jon Pertwee saved the series from the threat of cancellation. A year later, the next phase of its reinvention introduced a new assistant for the Doctor and a debonair adversary to threaten him during his exile on Earth. The colourful formula for some of the show’s best-loved adventures was complete.

 

This issue covers all the stories from 1971:

  • Terror of the Autons – the very first appearance of the Master as he arrives on Earth to help the Nestene invade
  • The Mind of Evil – the Keller technique promises to turn violent prisoners into model citizens, but only the Doctor can see the danger
  • The Claws of Axos – the Axons arrive on Earth promising prosperity and plenty for all, but hide a terrible secret behind their gold facade
  • Colony in Space – the Time Lords send the Doctor and Jo on a mission to a struggling human colony on the brink of starvation
  • The Dæmons – a quiet country village has a new vicar – the Master! But what is his satanic plot?

All-new content includes exclusive features, insightful commentary and rare behind-the-scenes images.
