Doctor Who Magazine heads into its forthcoming landmark 200th issue with a look at the recolourisation of The Dæmons, the problems with The Ambassadors of Death and a Warriors of the Deep triple-bill as the story features in the Archive alongside interviews with writer Johnny Byrne and actress Ingrid Pitt.
Rebuilding the classics II: In DWM 196 BBC telecine engineer Steve Roberts explained how the recolourisation of The Dæmons took place.
