Doctor Who Magazine #381 is set to hit the stands this Thursday, and thanks to the magazine’s Deputy Editor Tom Spilsbury you can find out what’s inside below…
Doesn’t it seem like an unbearable wait until Episode 2 of the new series on Saturday? So help fill the gap with the new issue of Doctor Who Magazine!
This issue, DWM goes behind the scenes on Smith and Jones, and learns The Freema Agyeman Mnemonic System For Remembering All Ten Doctors:
“It’s ‘Hurry To Pub, Because Da Beermats Make Me Excellent Tablecloths’,”
Freema explains. “The first letter of each word reminds you of each Doctorâ€™s surname. I was undecided between Tablecloths and Trophies Â but Davidâ€™s a trophy, obviously. “Å’Daâ€™ is pushing it, surely,” frowns David Tennant Â possibly embittered by the implication that Freema needs to be reminded of his surname. He turns to Third Assistant Director Sarah Davies. “Can you remember them all, Sarah?” “No,” she admits. “Beyond Eccleston, I get stuck.” “Thatâ€™s rubbish,” he says. “We may have to lose you.”
There’s more on the making of Episode 1 in an exclusive fact-pact 11-page feature, featuring brand new photographs, fascinating interviews and intriguing design drawings.
