Doctor Who Adventures issue 249

Doctor Who Adventures issue 249

Happy New Year!

How cool was your Christmas? Mine was all snow and presents and scary living trees.

Then I had a nice Christmas dinner with Amy and Rory.

And pudding. Mmm. Quick tip, though: don’t use a sonic to do the washing up.

It smashes all the dishes! Whoops.

Also inside…

*Unit files reopened
*Wooden Kings Brain
*Mega Moments – The Christmas Special
*The Doctors guide to 2012
*The Doctor is mad – in a good way
*Humans aren’t just for Christmas (comic)
*Monster promises and much more…

This week issue, price £2.99, comes with Dalek pencils and toppers and a surprise gift. Next weeks issue comes with a postcard notebook and Doctor Who pen.

    There is no Easter special. Series 7 is airing from late 2012. The 50th anniversary is not a part of series 7. Matt Smith never said he was leaving next year. He’s only said he is taking it series by series. Whether he will leave after the 50th anniversary is unknown. River is apparently staying after the Ponds leave but it’s unknown whether she will be a full time companion is unknown.

    My mum got me this from a hospital shop today (it’s ok everythings fine! Tenth Doctor would love that shop) it is ok. I haven’t read it though.
    The cover is quite nice! With Matt Smiths scar taking centre stage!!!
