Radio Times Offers Digital Doctor Who Special This Week!

This week’s Radio Times looks at the new series of Doctor Who, in which Peter Capaldi tells us that he thought he would be overlooked for the show.

Perhaps most exciting, however, is the enhanced digital special issue, available for just 99p!

As well as recalling having a blanket over his head, Twelfth Doctor Capaldi explains how he hasn’t quite found his feet, noting  “I don’t know if it’s quite fallen into place yet. I think it’s a mistake to get it to click, to get into a groove. I’ve tried to avoid finding a way to do it and then just repeating that. I’m trying all the time to see what works and what doesn’t work, though I’m trying to bring back some of the Doctor’s mystery and strangeness, which is hard to do given that the show is 50 years old.”

Features inside the new issue include an exclusive interview and cover shoot with star Peter Capaldi and showrunner Steven Moffat’s unmissable guide to all 12 episodes of the new series. This week’s issue is also a Blippar special with additional Doctor Who content where you see the Blippar logo.

This week’s Radio Times, is on sale Tuesday 19th August 2014 (for listings 23-29 August 2014).

Among other things, the 10th anniversary supplement features the third Doctor Jon Pertwee on the cover and includes episode guides for the first 10 years, a guide to build your own Dalek and a (then) new Dalek story by Terry Nation.

The Radio Times digital special also features a unique animated Doctor Who cover, only available with the digital edition, featuring Peter Capaldi; plus a picture gallery of the new Doctor from an Radio Times exclusive photo-shoot.
