Dr Who in “Woden’s Warriors”!

Whatever next week’s Viking age Doctor Who episode is like, it won’t be Woden’s Warriors! I don’t think I’ve ever used the reblog facility on WordPress before, but it seemed the easiest way of referring readers to this post and this Doctor Who comic strip, not from Mighty TV Comic as the original post says but from the earlier TV Comic Annual 1976, published in 1975. The artist is John M. Burns. who was illustrating The Tomorrow People and then Space 1999 for Look-In at around the same time, I think. Doctor Who was not his thing, but his likenesses of Tom Baker and Elisabeth Sladen are idiosyncratic at least, I am old enough to say that I enjoyed reading the story when it was first published, though the disparaging and sexist way the Doctor talks to Sarah goes well beyond anything she suffered in the television series. Follow the link to the original post below for links to larger images.
