Doctor Who Magazine 386

I wonder what the next DWM will feature. Perhaps new editor Tom Spilsbury will email me the details…

Sip on a glass of lemonade, get out your sun lounger, and sit out in the sunshine with the new issue of Doctor Who Magazine!

This issue, Doctor Who’s head writer and executive producer Russell T Davies talks candidly about his plans for the Christmas Special and Series Four…

“This year’s Christmas Special was always going to have a one-off companion, little knowing Doctor Who Magazine 386that it would be Kylie! I like the Christmas-ness of a one-off. As you’ll see, there’s a whole new take – again – on what a companion can be…”

Russell reveals secrets concerning the return of ‘Runaway Bride’ Donna… “She gives us the chance to be blunt about things, and be gobsmacked by things. Of course, she’ll still be brave and heroic sometimes, and she’ll save the Doctor’s life, but equally… for example, there’s one episode where they land on an alien planet, and the first thing she does is go back in the TARDIS to find the right coat!”

Also in the mag, Barry Newbery, Doctor Who designer during the 60s, 70s and 80s, is given a VIP tour of Upper Boat in Cardiff where the series is now filmed; the Fact of Fiction looks at the Master’s very first appearance in Terror of the Autons; Edward Thomas gives an in-depth insight into production design; and the Doctor and Martha begin a new comic strip adventure, The First. Plus, the Time Team reflect upon the Fifth Doctor’s final stories, Gareth Roberts pens Production Notes and there’s a bumper edition of the Space Time Telegraph!

Plus, of course, there’s all the latest exclusive casting news from BBC Wales, an exclusive new pic of the Doctor and Donna, a review of the three-part series finale, and all your usual favourites! Don’t miss it!

DWM 386 goes on sale from Thursday 23 August 2007, priced £3.99.
