Vampires of Venice
, Amy’s Choice, The Hungry Earth and Cold Blood – with
exclusive interviews with writers Toby Whithouse, Simon Nye, Chris Chibnall
and Steven Moffat, and never-before-seen photos!

Doctor Who Magazine 421Talking about the new-look reptile people of The Hungry Earth/Cold Blood,
Chris Chibnall reveals:

“These new creatures don’t negate the original
Silurians, they’re a different exploration of the same idea. They’re close
cousins. And once you see Neve McIntosh (who plays Silurians Alaya and
Restac) and Matt Smith acting their socks off together, I’m hoping you’ll
feel the idea paid off…”
