TV Action - February 1973

Exactly forty years ago this month, the recently renamed TV Action comic had The Doctor concluding Deadly Choice, before an unusual seven-page self-contained story in issue 104 (warranting a return to the cover).
Missing two weeks, The Doctor would return in issue 107.

Issue 105 has a small feature on the men inside the Daleks, with a photograph of John Scott Martin sitting in a Dalek base between takes on the closing scenes of Frontier In Space.

Issue 106 carried a letter from reader James Russell in London, changeling the letter in issue 101.

The original letter asked how the voices of the Daleks were achieved, and the answer referred to a photograph the publishers forgot to include! This omission was corrected alongside the new letter.
