Doctor Who Annual 1981 Hardback

Doctor Who Annual 1981 (Doctor Who Annuals #15) by Glenn Rix (Illustrator), Mel Powell (Illustrator) Text Stories: Colony of Death, Alien Mind Games, A Midsummer's Nightmare, The Voton Terror, Sweet Flower of Uthe Comic Strip: Every Dog Has His Day Notes: Following Paul Crompton's departure from World, Glenn Rix was assigned to handle the artwork, though the one strip story was illustrated by Mel Powell. At this time the art studios at World were disbanded and the work was done freelance rather than in-house. The companions were the Second Romana and K9, but the only recognisable likeness of Lalla Ward appears in the story A Midsummer's Nightmare. On page 14, Romana looks remarkably like Sarah Jane, which is ironic considering that the illustrators had never managed to capture Sarah's features accurately! A Midsummer's Nightmare featured a direct reference to The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy (considered by Romana to be a superior play to Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Doctoream). Once again, a quarter of the book was taken up with puzzles and stock features. The company underwent a name change, becoming World International Publishing Ltd whereas previously it had been World Distributors (Manchester) Ltd. Some copies were released with the year '1981' removed from the spine, cover and title page. The book was printed in Italy, and around 61,800 copies were sold.
