Drum Beat In Space
This is a very short story about a space drum "known to American scientists as Pioneer-6" although the story doesn't say what everybody else calls it.
It is only one page long, and the Doctor isn't even in it! The closest he comes is when the story says "Dr Who and his companions have encountered many strange people and objects in space, but one of the objects he could actually encounter today is a drum which beats continuously as it orbits around the sun."
I thought this was a Doctor Who story because of the picture of Tom Baker as the Doctor (or at least wearing a scarf) that takes up more than a quarter of the page, but it turns out I was wrong.
