The DOCTOR WHO AUTUMN SPECIAL 1987 went on sale just as the TV show returned to the BBC ONE schedules. My memory is a little fuzzy but I believe this went on sale a few days before the show returned (or, possibly, on the day it aired) as I remember this was my first sighting of the new (and much unloved) logo.
This was the first of several specials that used the square bound album format, an evolution of the design Marvel UK had been using for several years, to create a more classy package.
There was, once again, no comic strip. The running theme was the show's behind-the-scenes design work including an overview, a piece on the McCoy era title sequence, sixties design and directing and costume design (June Hudson, including some nice behind-the-scenes reference polaroids).
