The latest issue of Doctor Who Magazine is about to hit the shelves and we can’t wait over here at Kasterborous Towers. As usual we have been sent a preview to whet our appetite and it looks like those lovely people over at Panini are giving us even more to be excited about this Christmas! Thanks to Tom Spilsbury for the heads up.

Put on a party hat, pull a cracker, and countdown the hours to The Christmas Invasion with the new issue of Doctor Who Magazine!

This issue, the magazine speaks exclusively to Billie Piper – the Doctor’s companion, Rose – in a massive 10-page interview. Billie chats about how Rose will cope with the new Doctor in the Christmas Special and Series Two…

Rose is a bit more possessive this time around. I think it¹s because she feels like she¹s lost the Doctor once, and she doesn¹t want to lose him again. She¹s become a bit more jealous, which is something that¹s quite funny, but also destructive, as we¹ll find out…

“Sometimes Christmas specials don¹t really include Christmas. But ours does. There¹s lots of Christmas… and I¹m such a Christmas freak! So yeah, Christmas ­ and a new Doctor, and an alien invasion. And isn¹t that everything that you could possibly want from a Christmas special? Oh, and crackers!”

Plus, of course, there’s a full preview to the Tenth Doctor’s festive début, with dozens of photos from the story.

Meanwhile Steven Moffat, writer of the poll-winning The Empty Child and The Doctor Dances looks back at the success of his first Doctor Who adventure and chats about writing for the new Doctor in The Girl in the Fireplace.

Plus: there’s a look back at 2005 in the Review of the Year; Sorvad takes a journey with the Ghost of Christmas Past; and a very special story, Voice from the Vortex, which has dropped through from a terrifying parallel dimension.

Meanwhile, the Watcher returns with his Christmas Quiz; the Time Team watch The Armageddon Factor; the Ninth Doctor reaches his final comic strip adventure, A Groatsworth of Wit; and Russell T Davies returns with his own special version of The Twelve Days of Christmas in Production Notes…

On sale from Thursday 8 December, it’s the most packed issue of Doctor Who Magazine ever!
