Doctor Who Magazine 372

Doctor Who Magazine is due out in mid July, and we’ve got a preview for you…

The Doctor’s new companion Freema Agyeman gives her first interview to Doctor Who Magazine:

Doctor Who Magazine 372“My agent got a call saying that they wanted me to audition for a regular in Torchwood, and I was so up for it. So I went for an audition in London. But I had to miss the second audition, cos I got sick for a week in January. It was really awful. I was so upset. But then they said that they¹d reschedule it. And then, just before the third audition, I got a call from my agent.

She said, ‘All this time, they’ve been seeing you for the part of the new companion in Doctor Who, not for a regular in Torchwood!’ I couldn¹t believe it!

“David Tennant was just a dream. He was so supportive. He was like, ‘We can do the scene as many times as you want.” And the night before that audition, he’d left a little note under my door at the hotel. I went out to dinner with the casting director, and I came back and there was a little note ­ just, you know, so encouraging. These people aren¹t here to put barriers in my way, so I was able to walk in there like I¹d walk into a room of friends…”

Also this issue, DWM takes a ringside seat for the battle of the century – it’s Daleks versus Cybermen! ­ including an interview with Torchwood boss Tracy-Ann Oberman, and all the on-set gossip. James Strong presents the second half of his thrilling production diary on filming The Impossible Planet; an A-Z of Fear, chronicling the making of recent episode Fear Her; and the start of an exciting brand new comic strip adventure for the Doctor and Rose – The Futurists.

Plus, if that wasn’t enough! Your chance to vote for your favourites of the latest series; DWM pays tribute to 1960s Doctor Who producer Peter Bryant who passed away recently; the Matrix Data Bank is put on trial by the Time Lords; and the Time Team reach the end of Tom Baker’s tenure as the Doctor.

Not forgetting all the latest news, reviews and previews… with a few other surprises along the way!

DWM 372 is on sale from Thursday 20 July, priced £3.99.
