Vworp Vworp! in DWM
If you haven’t ordered your copy of Vworp Vworp! yet (and why not?) then perhaps a quick glance at the latest Doctor Who Magazine (issue 416) will persuade you.
On the foot of page 8 there’s an advert for the celebration of Doctor Who Magazine that is Vworp Vworp! – and just to underline how good it acutally is, Tom Spilsbury dedicated his monthly editorial to the fan produced magazine (which features the only print version of Time Leech #1, by Kasterborous’ Christian Cawley and Brian Terranova and illustrated by newcomer Justin Abbot).
Describing the publication as “ruddy marvellous” and “one of the finest Doctor Who fanzines I’ve seen in many a year” Spilsbury also makes the key point:
“If you love DWM, you won’t regret it.”
I’ve just received my own copy of Vworp Vworp! and it is an item of absolute beauty. A few months ago the team behind it, Gareth Kavanagh and Colin Brockhurst invited me to proof read most of it to make sure they hadn’t missed anything. It was lovely to be able to do that, but there is an obvious and a mysteriously hard to determine difference between reading something on screen and reading it in print.
Feeling the weight of the fanzine in my hands (a fanzine which to all intents and purposes is an actual polished magazine of better quality than you can buy off the shelf in most cases) is like holding a bundle of DWM-themed love.
Obviously I’m a little biased, because I’ve contributed in a small way to Vworp Vworp!‘s 80 pages – but with glossy pages, interviews, page layouts evocative of Doctor Who Weekly #1 and thoughts and recollections from Doctor Who fans far and wide, I know that Vworp Vworp! is not just a thing of beauty, it is an absolute must have.
