Notes:
This installment marks an overt sea-change in the tone of TV Comic strips, for two reasons. It is perhaps the first time that the strip incorporated on-screen continuity into its stories. And what they chose to acknowledge ó the fact that the Doctor was exiled to Earth, but that we didn't actually see the consequent regeneration ó allows for the final Troughton stories to be firmly set in what Doctor Who fans sometimes call "Season 6b". In other words, every story from here to "The Night Walkers" is set between the last televised Second Doctor story and the first Third Doctor story.

Within the continuity of the strip itself, this installment sets up a little whiff of a multi-story arc which concludes in the final installment of "The Night Walkers".

Oddities:
One of the aspects of that arc that is particularly divergent from the television series is the characterization of the Doctor's exile. It's positively posh. In this installment, we see the Doctor take up residence in a suite in one of London's ritziest hotels. He's shown to order a grand meal, after which he says, "Scrumptuous! When you've spent a few hundred years eating dehydrated provisions, roast duck tastes magnificent!" To the modern reader this statement seems to conflict with what we know of the TARDIS. However, this notion of dehydrated food isn't too far removed from what we saw of the way food was provided on the TARDIS in the First Doctor story, "The Daleks".
