Here, the studio floor gives it away that they’re not in a jungle at all…

BLOOPERS! – The Hand of Fear

I spotted three bloopers from this story, all in part three!

Seconds later when the Doctor arrives, you can see the top of the set…

And finally, when they get back to the Tardis you`ll see this boom microphone appear in shot – it stays on screen for a full five seconds…

With this post we’ve completed our journey through all of the Doctor’s adventures in TV Comic, Countdown and TV Action┬ábefore Doctor Who Weekly came along in 1979.

I don’t know about you, but this is the the first time I’ve ever seen many of these strips. Some of them I remember vaguely from my childhood, and thanks are due to those fans who have helped me complete the collection so we can all enjoy what was, for many of us of a certain age, a huge part of being a fan back in the dark, anti-geek, pre-DWW days of Seventies Britain.
