DWM and DWA Out Today!

6 03 2008


This month’s Doctor Who Magazine comes with a complete new Doctor Who audio adventure.

Cuddlesome is a brand new adventure for the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison, co-starring Roberta Taylor, Timothy West, and David Troughton. “It’s about a dastardly plot to infect the world,” says Peter, “because someone was nasty to someone when they were young! It’s a nice idea, toys are the perfect way to get to the population. Evil!”

Also this issue, DWM counts down the 100 Greatest Doctor Who Death Scenes of All Time! Doctor Who’s current executive producer Russell T Davies leads the comments on the programme’s most memorably morbid moments. Speaking about the battle between the Raston Warrior Robot and the Cybermen in 1983’s The Five Doctors, Russell enthuses, “Best. Massacre. Ever. Heads go flying! Arms! Guts! On Children in Need night! We should really bring those Rastons back one day, they were brilliant” Terrance Dicks agrees, as the writer of the story, “there’ll be a few quid in it for me!”

Meanwhile, writer Steven Moffat is full of praise for Pete Tyler’s death in 2005’s Father’s Day “just chilling, and tragic and unforgettable” while fellow scribe Paul Cornell raves over Harrison Chase’s grisly demise in 1976’s The Seeds of Doom – “Just gorgeous. Apt and relishable. One of the absolute best Doctor Who deaths.”

Also in DWM 393: “30 Reasons to be excited about Series 30″ – with new photos from the new series! Martha Jones, alias Freema Agyeman answers questions from the dreaded TARDIS tin” and script-writer Gareth Roberts reveals how the Doctor and Donna are set to meet Agatha Christie, as he discusses his forthcoming adventure, The Unicorn and the Wasp.

The Fact of Fiction uncovers the truth behind 1066 and all that as it examines The Time Meddler while Novice Hame actress Anna Hope speaks about her new Doctor Who audio role. Nightmarish creatures fill the final chilling chapter of full colour comic strip Universal Monsters and Russell T Davies extols the new-found virtues of an oft-neglected Tom Baker tale.

Neil Harris bemoans the ‘worst story ever’ in You Are Not Alone and The Time Team find that it’s grim up north as they watch The Mark of the Rani.

DWM 393 is out in the United Kingdom and Ireland on 6 March 2008. Also don’t forget that the new DWA came out today as well.
