Inside the revamped issue, which goes on sale two days before the new Doctorâ€™s first episode airs on BBC, is the first in a series of exclusive diary reports from actor Matt Smith. Issue 160 of the magazine sees Matt write about auditioning for the part of The Doctor and meeting The Doctorâ€™s new companion, Amy Pond, played by Karen Gillan. In addition there is a sneak peek at The Doctorâ€™s first episode, The Eleventh Hour, a star interview with Matt Smith, a free TARDIS clock and the chance to win your very own life-size Dalek.
Other new features include a brand new â€˜Fast Factâ€™ page, which allows readers to cut out and collect fact files on all their favourite Doctor Who characters and a fresh new Doctor Who Adventures comic strip. There is also the introduction of a secret code; this runs throughout the magazine and allows readers to decode hidden Doctor Who facts and information. Favourites, such as puzzles, quizzes and posters also feature.
Moray Laing, Editor of Doctor Who Adventures says:
â€œThe new look Doctor Who Adventures magazine will prepare all young Doctor Who fans for the arrival of the Eleventh Doctor and his new companion Amy. With Mattâ€™s contributions our new and exclusive content will keep all of our regular and new readers, up to date with the latest Time Lord travels.â€
