Doctor Who @45 Prize Draw!

It may have escaped your attention – but Doctor Who is 45 years old this weekend!

Before you get totally annihilated by press coverage and footage from An Unearthly Child on this most momentous of weekends, take a few minutes to enter our prize draw!

Now it would be very easy to ask questions – such as "Who was the original star of Doctor Who?" – but of course you all know that it was William Hartnell, just as you know that both John F Kennedy and CS Lewis died just one day before Doctor Who‘s debut on November 23rd 1963.

So there’s no point me asking questions – it’s all down to you guys to send me an email with your name and postal address!

The prizes are as follows:

1st Prize: The Time Travellers’ Almanac (Steve Tribe), A History of the Universe (Lance Parkin), 2 prints from the Anthony Dry archives.

2nd and 3rd runners up will each win a copy of The Time Travellers’ Almanac.

New out from BBC Books, The Time Travellers’ Almanac covers the history of the universe in nuWho, and currently retails at £14.99 (£8.99 from Amazon )

A History of the Universe dates from 1996, and covers the history of the universe in the first 26 series of Doctor Who and the novelisations. It’s a bit of a rarity these days, and we have a copy in great condition to giveaway.

Anthony Dry is of course the creative director of and his distinctive illustrations have adorned several issues of Doctor Who Magazine over recent months, usually accompanying Big Finish previews. The prints received will be of Anthony’s choice.

To enter – email [email protected].

The closing date is midnight UK time on November 30th – don’t delay!
