50 Who : 1971

1971 the year that Arsenal beat Liverpool 2-1 in the FA Cup final to clinch the league and cup double; A Clockwork Orange and Get Carter are released in cinemas; Monaco win the Eurovision Song Contest with “Un banc, un arbre, une rue” by Severine.

Also in 1971 Nestle released an illustrated fifteen part story entitled Doctor Who Fights Masterplan Q on the backs of the chocolate wrappers. Like the TV series of the same year this story featured the Master as the baddie and you would have to have eaten plenty of chocolate bars to get the full set, which would have been fun for the kids, until their next visit to the dentist.
