Overall this is a great TV Tornado Annual. The written stories are top class and the art work is professional. Blends so well together with nice features on stars of the day, and a good one on, Weapons Of The Invaders; relating to a new sci-fi programme from Quinn Martin, starring Roy Thinnes as architect David Vincent. Finally a great game which I would play for hours on end called, Grand Prix.
