Doctor Who Magazine 393

It’s that time of the month again…

Cuddle up with the latest Doctor Who Magazine!

There’s a complete new Doctor Who audio adventure FREE with the latest issue of DWM!

Cuddlesome is a brand new adventure for the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison, co-starring Roberta Taylor, Timothy West, and David Troughton.

“It’s about a dastardly plot to infect the world,” says Peter, “because someone was nasty to someone when they were young! It’s a nice idea – toys are the perfect way to get to the population. Evil!”

Doctor Who Magazine 393Also this issue, DWM counts down the 100 Greatest Doctor Who Death Scenes of All Time!

Doctor Who’s current executive producer Russell T Davies leads the comments on the programme’s most memorably morbid moments. Speaking about the battle between the Raston Warrior Robot and the Cybermen in 1983’s The Five Doctors – out now on DVD! – Russell enthuses, “Best. Massacre. Ever. Heads go flying! Arms! Guts! On Children in Need night! We should really bring those Rastons back one day, they were brilliant…”

“I hope so,” laughs Terrance Dicks, the writer of the story, “there’ll be a few quid in it for me!”

Meanwhile, writer Steven Moffat is full of praise for Pete Tyler’s death in 2005’s Father’s Day (“just chilling, and tragic and unforgettable”) while fellow scribe Paul Cornell raves over Harrison Chase’s grisly demise in 1976’s The Seeds of Doom – “Just gorgeous. Apt and relishable. One of the absolute best Doctor Who deaths.”

But whose demise could top the list as the all-time Number One…?
