Articles by Alasdair Shaw

Alasdair Shaw dabbled in Who throughout the 80s, but didn’t really get into it properly until 1989. His sense of timing has not improved over the years. He’s a third generation Who fan as well as a father of two. His wife has a bad feeling about those two facts. When not working as a lab technician or writing for Kasterborous Alasdair runs the Doctor Who Reprint Society for which he writes In Print and Dangling Threads. He’s a big fan of the Valeyard, but that’s neither here nor there. He has never worked for UNIT and is not related to Dr Liz Shaw.

Lee Sullivan and the Ginger Doctor

I first encountered Lee Sullivan’s work on the covers of Transformers UK, shortly before he started contributing work to Doctor Who Magazine. More recent fans of the series will probably be more familiar with his work in the 50th Anniversary celebration Prisoners of Time from IDW. However there is a Doctor who falls between the…

A Town Called Prelude

Well that’s another exclusive prelude up on iTunes, for A Town Called Mercy this time. So unless you’re on iTunes you’ll need to wait to the DVD/Blu Ray release to see it. *Cough* YouTube *Cough* (Uploaded by DoctorWhoTV) Anyway……… On one hand I’m a bit annoyed I didn’t get to see this Prelude before last…

017 The Time Meddler

And so it begins. Gallifrey begins to emerge into the Doctor Who mythos, ready to take it’s grand place alongside other significant Who staples. At last the noble race of Time Lords can stand revealed as we learn just where the Doctor came from. Except we don’t. Don’t worry, we will. Gallifrey, as Rassilon proclaimed…

The Doctor’s New Coat

It’s back and it’s about time. Will we ever stop using that phrase in Paul McGann articles? Probably not, although this time we’re referring to his coat rather than the actor himself. It’s been nearly two years now since fans at the Armageddon Pop Culture Expo in New Zealand in 2010 were shown Paul McGann…

A Question of Colour

It annoys me. Does it annoy anyone else? Each time the Doctor goes to change the great British media starts proclaiming that the next Doctor might be black or a woman as if it’s a major issue. And it’s not. Not really. We’re talking about an alien who just happens to look vaguely human. That…
