February Books 9) The Doctor Who Annual 1967

Alas, the 1967 Doctor Who annual is not as good as its predecessor. I remember finding it in an older cousin’s house when I was very young, and being gripped by the first story, “The Cloud Exiles”, in which the Doctor (or “Dr Who”, as he is consistently referred to here) rescues the Ethereals from non-corporeal exile after some initial misunderstandings. On rereading, I still thought it was the best story in the book; the worst is the sole cartoon strip, whose title is “Mission for Duh” (sic). Walter Howarth’s graphics are if anything better than the previous year; the stories, however, are not as good on the whole.
