Doctor Who Adventures Issue 54

Doctor Who Adventures ask this week – “Who’s the worst villain in Doctor Who?” The Doctor has encountered so many brilliant villains on his travels – and sometimes they look just like us, making them even more scary than usual. Remember scheming Margaret Slitheen and the absorbing Victor Kennedy? Innocent enough at first – they…

Now This is What I Call News

I’ll tell you what – there’s no finer thing in the cosmos than the mixture that we see in Doctor Who between fantastic sci fi and foxy ladies. Pinchbottom Review is a wonderful-looking burlesque review with a sci fi theme. Why no one else has thought of this, I don’t know. It also seems that…

Gwen Loves Martha

It seems that the cast of Torchwood really do get on with each other and the guest cast; we’ve had Freema Agyeman enthusing about Alan Dale so far, and now Eve Myles waxes lyrical in Torchwood Magazine about the Doctor’s former companion.
