Notes

Castaway is the ex post facto title of the first of two Third Doctor comic stories in the 1971 TV Comic Annual. Like many pre-Marvel comic strips, it had no title on initial publication. The name gained traction after being used by Jean-Marc Lofficier in The Terrestrial Index, and later by John Ainsworth in his then-comprehensive listing of Third Doctor strips in DWCC 4.
