  • Notes: Excerpt of a review of Science Fiction: The illustrated encyclopedia followed by a letter to the editor from 10 November

Sir, — I'm afraid the Daleks shown above the review of Science Fiction: The illustrated encyclopedia (November 3) are not from the television series, Dr Who, as credited, but from one of the two motion pictures, which ill-used the talents of the late Peter Cushing. (The TARDIS also suffered interior redesign, and, in one case, major changes in personnel.)

Unlike BBC Daleks, these have grapples instead of plungers, different side-lights, and exterminated in a most disappointing manner, imitating fire extinguishers, instead of going to negative image (coloured electric blue in their first encounter with Jon Pertwee's Doctor, the series having gone into colour in 1970). On a point of information in one other respect, the date of the Foundation Trilogy is 1953, not 1963, is cited.
