Three Doctors in the Dr Who 8th Anniversary Special

A Different Doctor Who Anniversary!

While the bunting may be up for the 50th anniversary, this year there is also another Doctor Who anniversary – that’s right, it’s been eight years since the show was regenerated into the form we know, love and occasional whisper sweet nothings to (nope, just me then…)

Three Doctors in the Dr Who 8th Anniversary Special

So to celebrate its continuing popularity eight years on, Wonderful Books has published The Dr Who Anniversary Special, a must-have magazine for every fan of Doctor Who!

The Special is a 36-page, all-colour, printed fanzine with a fantastic wraparound cover by leading toy photographer ‘Tomfan’ , where Doctor Who fans relive all of the Doctor’s astonishing exploits from the very beginning (well, as well as they can remember them)

There are also examinations of each major companion by some of the best writers from among Doctor Who‘s loyal followers, with impressive new artwork.

And you can learn exactly how to build your very own Dalek (although the fanzine takes no responsibility for the results).

The Dr Who Anniversary Special is produced by Paul Smith as the follow-up to 2011’s The Wonderful Book of Dr Who 1965.

Paying homage to the iconic 1973 Radio Times Dr Who 10th Anniversary Special, it takes a tongue-in-cheek look at the current series, along with reverential contributions from respected fan writers including Andrew Blair, Johnny Candon, Frank Collins, Martin Day, Philip Sandifer, JR Southall, Keith Topping and Alex Wilcock.

Artists featured include Jason Fletcher & Westley Smith, Jon Pinto, M Jason Reed, James Taylor, Will Thompson and many more.

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.
