DOCTOR WHO returned to TV screens over the long Easter weekend, officially getting the 50th anniversary celebrations underway.

So I thought it would be fun to rewind 25 years (OMG!) and post what I still consider to be one of the greatest fanzine covers ever.

THE FRAME issue 8 (November 1988) marked the occasion of the show's 25th anniversary with this amazing cover by Trevor Baxendale.

As the text feature explains, the objective was to incorporate one element from every TV story to date.  There's no key because the cover doubled as a competition.  

**UPDATE: I've tracked-down a copy of the issue with the key/ results so - in due course - I'll post it here.  In the meantime: how many can you identify?**

The Frame was a glossy pro-zine, edited/ published by David Howe, Mark Stammers and Stephen James Walker and published between 1987 and 1993.  The 24 issues took full advantage of its top-notch (for the time) production standards to showcase the behind-the-scenes aspects of the show.

  1. Thanks for tracking down this cover and posting it online. Just remembered about it recently and how fascinated I was by it as a fledgling Who fan back in the day. Great to see it again!
