Though I have no firsthand experience of them, I kind of love the style and approach of apocryphal early Doctor Who tie-ins like TV Action and all that. Maybe because you just wouldn't get painted artwork of this type now, it seems particularly bold and vibrant.
Also, before stories in all media became carefully moderated to ensure they fit with on-screen continuity, comics and so on like this seemed to occupy their own, slightly alternate continuum - which I also like, in a slightly perverse way. When would the Third Doctor ever do something as ordinary as mix with bowler-hatted businessmen, outside Horse Guards Parade, in the series proper?!
