This issue is predominantly monochromatic. There are some color pages, but these are reserved for photographs. There's a one page gag strip that's duotone, but the Doctor Who material is all black and white.
Notes: The title for this story is the one explicitly given to it in this issue. However, it's generally known by the name given in the story arc, "Duel of the Daleks". In the overall "Dalek Chronicles" mega-arc, it's parts 11-17.
Synopsis: The Brigadier has brung the Third Doctor to the Underground on the trail of a criminal Captain Yates lost above ground. The Doctor tells the Brig that Yates' lost mark is "the greatest thief in the universe". Together, the Doctor and UNIT search the subway passengers for the elusive Hingrad.
One of them attracts attention. A UNIT enlisted man attempts to question the man, but he slips away after throwing a flash bomb at UNIT and the Doctor. A chase ensues. Aided by the Doctor's application of a "radioactive trace element" to Hingrad's shoes, the team track Hingrad to the Tower of London. There, the thief has set up a headquarters right underneath the noses of the Tower Guard.
After a spot of bother where it appears the Doctor will be killed by one of the Tower's cannons, the Doctor manages to at least chase Hingrad off the job. He, UNIT and the Tower Guard force him to escape into the Thames, with his headquarters, and his plan to steal the Crown Jewels, fully exposed. Though Hingrad lives to commit another crime, the story ends with the implication that this particular caper is ruined.
Notes: UNIT's usage in this story is a little . . . odd. Why UNIT, and not some branch of the domestic UK police or military, would be on the trail of a thief is a bit unexplained. Had the writers simply used the Master, instead of this obvious Master-clone, Hingrad, then UNIT's involvement would have been immediately logical. One assumes, however, that the Doctor's knowledge of the thief is enough to attract the Brigadier's interest, and to secure the use of his men for a task that was a little "off charter".
