purplecat: Jo from Doctor Who.  Text says Jo Grant Secret Agent. (Who:Jo)

double spread artwork from the start of a story called Dark Intruders.  It shows the third Doctor and Jo (with short hair which looks green but is probably intended to be blonde and big round sunglasses framed against a reddish-purple planet.  In front of them is a montage of two astronauts and a scene of a splashdown capsule from a rocket afloat on water with the two astronauts being rescued by tow men in a yellow dinghy.


The 1973 Dr Who annual has these rather nice montage artworks at the start of several stories. The woman with green (though it was probably intended to be blonde hair is almost certainly meant to be Jo Grant. It wasn't exactly unusual for companions to look nothing like the actresses that played them in the Dr Who annuals since, as I understand matters, the artists often had no reference material to work from. However I do not believe this to have been the case in 1973.
