Doctor Who Unlimited
Over the years, Doctor Who has always been slightly less widespread in the USA then it has in the UK. Hardly surprising seeing as it used to take such a long time for new episodes to reach that part of the globe.
Weeks after they were transmitted and diagnosed to death on the internet, American fans were just getting round to seeing them. In the last few months however, due to the popularity of the show, the BBC have been recognising that American fans want the show as fast as possible and such have been screening new episodes faster and have even aligned the DVD releases for the US and the UK so that fans can get there hit of who all over the world on practically the same day.
Off the back of this, America will be receiving its very own version of Doctor Who Magazine called Doctor Who Unlimited!
The monthly release will be 44 pages long and will feature different content to that of our UK version. Not much is known about the publication at the moment, a release date has not been confirmed (you can bet itâ€™ll be this year though) and itâ€™s unknown whether itâ€™ll have a regular comic strip. The only thing that has been mentioned is that there will be more fan interaction but what that means is anyoneâ€™s guess.
This news only goes to show the growing popularity of Doctor Who in the USA as it breeds the confidence to launch a standalone magazine. As ever, Kasterborous will keep you in the loop with any details.
