The Radio Times, Christmas 2011

RT Christmas Who Bonanza!

The Radio Times, Christmas 2011
Like most presents the Radio Times Christmas issue (17- 30 Dec) comes wrapped in a gorgeous hand drawn cover by artist Kate Forrester and behind its choice of two very Noël designs comes complete with a few Who related titbits.

Yes: unwrap the festive goodness and find out which Christmas present the young Matt Smith found ‘pretty epic’ (here’s a clue: its not socks) and which unlikely figure became the became the influence for this years Christmas Special The Doctor, The Widow and The Wardrobe (here’s a clue: he was recently retooled for modern audiences and is also not a pair of socks):

“The most unexpected source and possibly the least Christmassy man in all fiction.”

The bumper RT Christmas issue comes crammed with two weeks’ worth of TV and radio listings, over 4,000 films rated, plus articles and interviews from some of the biggest names in entertainment – and if that wasn’t enough there’s also a free Gruffalo book worth £3.99 for every reader, which can be collected from Mothercare or the Early Learning Centre.

The Radio Times Christmas Special is available now for £2.50 from all good newsagents, supermarkets and weirdos on street corners peddling magazines.

Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
