Random Doctor Who Picture  

The cover of Doctor Who Monthly number 64 (EDIT: 62!). The first issue I bought. It was subsequently raided for pictures to cut out and stick onto things so I no longer appear to have the actual cover myself.

I thought the 1st time I saw this serial that the Cavalier would have made an interesting companion!

He'd have certainly made a good contrast to the existing crew which tended rather towards the child-like.

PD was the youngest actor ever at the time to play the Doctor, so I guess JNT thought even younger-looking companions were proper.

I had never thought of that particular adverb, but it does make sense. Adric missed Four's mentoring. Nyssa might have seen Four as a father figure someday. Tegan was just too much at times, but she got some good zingers occasionally.

Richard Mace would have added some zest to that era, and with Adric leaving soon, the TARDIS would not have felt too crowded, perhaps?

When PD became the Doctor, I extrapolated from (a) the ages of the actors and (b) their lengths of service to work out when I would be old enough to be the Doctor. My actuarial tendencies showed themselves early ...

That's clever!

Or, possibly, geeky.

Or possibly just very you!

I think you have hit the nail on the head.

Was there a poster of the funky disco robot?

Not in this one, but I think there was in one of the later issues. I can't remember if there was a poster in this one - at one point I definitely had a poster of Adric in his Four to Doomsday space suit because I recall giving it to a friend who had a crush on him and that must have been from around this point.

Ha, excellent!

This issue did indeed have the Adric poster, with Four to Doomsday suit. My six-year-old cousin was very taken with it, to my surprise.
