The Astonishing Success of Doctor Who Adventures!

Doctor Who Adventures 36 is out today, but before we look at that, a big round of applause for BBC Magazines and the team behind the publication for their excellent sales.

BBC Magazines has informed us that Doctor Who Adventures is the fastest growing consunmer magazine!

Jaynie Bye, Joint Managing Director, BBC Children’s Magazines, says: “The astounding success story for us this year has been Doctor Who Adventures magazine which, at 99%, posts the largest year-on-year increase this ABC consumer publishing period. The title continues to smash our predictions and has, over the last six months alone, managed to sell 47,000 additional copies per issue and massively grown its market.

Well done to all concerned!
