"The Dalek book: 1964 or 1965?"[edit]

This article says that "The Dalek Book" was published in 1965 but a book I read (I think it was "Doctor Who: The Legend Continues", I can't remember any more info) it says it was published in 1964. --UserJDalek 04:35, 15 September 2014 (UTC)

You are correct; it's 1964. The publication date for The Dalek World and the Dalek Outer Space Book had also crept forward by a year - I've corrected them all in the article now. I think this happened because most annuals of this type, which traditionally go on sale for Christmas, are actually published the year before their cover date. Thus the 1968 TV Comic Annual was published in 1967. None of the Dalek books in question were 'annuals' in the usual sense or have cover dates, however, so this logic simply doesn't apply in this instance. Well spotted and thanks for raising this.
