What’s In This Week’s Radio Times?

The Radio Times has a special Doctor Who edition that is now available! The magazine features one glorious cover for each of the 12 Doctors (counting John Hurt!) and also loads of interactive content.

From the Radio Times:

“To access the interactive content readers simply download the free Blippar app to their smartphone or tablet; then open the app and hold over the cover of this week’s Radio Times to reveal an exclusive video message from the current Doctor, Matt Smith, and the opportunity for readers to create and star in their own Radio Times Doctor Who cover to share on social media.”

And each time a person finds a Blippar logo in the pages of the magazine, they can scan it for even more interactive content. The wide range of information includes:

“A comprehensive episode by episode guide for each Doctor. Over 100 pictures from the Radio Times Doctor Who archive. Gallery of all Radio Times Doctor Who covers. Exclusive 3D content. …Interviews with Matt Smith, David Tennant and John Hurt; authored pieces by showrunner Steven Moffat and BBC Director General Tony Hall; a guide to all the Doctors, including archive interviews…; a gallery of all 50 Radio Times Doctor Who covers; celebrity fans…; and a chance to win Matt Smith’s bow-tie.”

And much, much more–even including updates during the week. The new Radio Times issue, featuring all 12 covers, went on sale on Tuesday 19th November.

    Wonder why they used the image of Tom Baker they did and not one from during his tenure as with the others. A bit expensive if you want all 12 different covers.

    On the Tvtimes side of 4 different covers Paul McGann seems to be AWOL

    Other TV listings magazines are available

    Managed to get a pathetic 4 of the 12 covers so far…

    Sylvester and Ace are my favorite Doctor-companion team, and I wish Sylvester’s cover had Ace on it. But I guess they didn’t use any of the companions. Hey! How about 50 or so different covers for all of the companions? I’ll send that idea in to RT!

    I do find it really odd that of all the photos available from the BBC, the Radio Times chose to use so many photographs from Dimensions in Time. It’s noticeable with Colin and Sylv, and particularly jarring with Tom.

    Im after jon pertwee and peter davison as they are my two favorite’s.Anyone know how much an issue is now a day’s?It’s a while since i bought one.I think if you got all 12 they would be worth a fortune in years to come.

      £1.60 each. Managed to get 8 of the 12 now; plenty of Pertwee, but I’m struggling to find Davison!
