from the pages of TV Comic…
Well, that was an update and a half!
I’ve mostly read the old TV Comic strips out of order in the past, Seeing them in sequence, it’s striking how much the arrival of Roger Noel Cook as writer with “The Trodos Tyranny” changed the stories from a mix of fable and kiddie versions of GA Henty-style colonial adventures to kiddie versions of pulp Sci-Fi.
Notable, too, how John Canning has already added a couple of years to the apparent ages of John and Jennifer – compare “Gaze of the Gorgon”, where they look as young as the Bill Mevin versions, with “The Galaxy Games”. I wonder how they’d have written the grandchildren out if Canning hadn’t carried on doing that?
Enjoyed the 2nd doctor and the Daleks
