Doctor Who Adventures issue 274

Doctor Who Adventures issue 274

I’VE spent this week chatting to an underwater town of octopuses.

Well I say ‘chatting’. I guess it was really ‘escaping from’. Octopuses are fascinating and clever.

They have three hearts, blue blood and can regrow lost tentacles – sort of like regeneration. I thought they might be related to Time Lords.

They’re not. At least, the ones on the sea planet of Flamph say they’re not. But they did think I looked tasty. Yikes!

Also inside…

*Under wraps
*The good Ood guide
*Find the Tardis
*Doctor Wear
*Companions
*Creature feature
*Le Tour De Death (comic)
*Monster texts and much more…

This weeks issue, priced £2.60, comes with Dalek toppers and Deadly 60 cards

      That’s rather fun. The amount of times I have visited this page, I should have noticed sooner.

    For anyone who is still interested in my free gift issue, I have done some research.

    The pencil topper gift we have had already with issue 205 – it is identical.
    The five plastic dalek toppers I can only presume are the same ones as with issue 249.

    As we have technically had both before, I am happier now with the one copy. But had they been two new gifts it would have been a different matter. Recently we had an issue with one of three previously issued masks. I could not determine the difference through the packet, so had to settle for one.

    Has anyone managed to get a different version than pictured?

    I have checked a dozen shops now in four different towns. Either they are prematurely sold out, or only have the “white-with-caricature-dalek-artwork” versions.

      i had a look in Tescos and they were all the same (pencil rubber)

      Thanks Booboo.

      Merseyside-9 copies for sale all “pencil rubbers”
      Cheltenham/Gloucester area Tesco -all pencil rubbers

      I have checked various newsagents, Shell garages, WHS’s, Sainsburys, Waitrose’s and Asda’s in a broad middle and Southern Hampshire area… all pencil rubbers.

      I desperately hope that the magazine cover is premature/wrong and that there were not able to distribute the other version this week. Otherwise many of us are going to have incomplete DWA collections.

    Is there a shortage of this mag in the stores this week? I buy this online and despite a preorder it hasn’t shipped. My backup store doesn’t seem to have it in stock either. ;(

      Interesting. From a UK point-of-view, when I just discovered there were two versions, I nipped to all my local stores, that A) had less copies and B) only had the variant I already have.

      Has anyone else found both versions yet. Presumably the pencil toppers are different.

      You will be lucky if you find a shop with a choice. Sometimes it is a perfect distrubution, other times it seems half the country get one permutation and the rest get the other…

      June 21st, 2012 - 10:17am

      There’s an image randomiser that picks one of three images every time the page loads.

      Either that or I’m lying to you and booboo works for the Silence. 😀

      Posters are: A3 Don’t blink weeping angels, A4 amy and Rory’s best moments: Vampires of venice and a4 Ultimte monster poster Brannigan. Although he isn’t a monster but an alien friend. They did this with the tritovores and forest of cheem. Friends not monsters!

    What’s up with the cover? Looks like a good issue.

    Also, off topic, but it’s my birthday today! The DW related presents I got were a TARDIS door poster and Torchwood: Into the Silence book. I’m also getting Death to the Daleks on Friday as it hasn’t arrived yet. 😀

    Ooh I want this issue so badly due to me collecting Deadly 60 cards.

    Also, I just got issue 273. The diary is awesome (although when you reveal the writing it does leave a blue mark) and it was a good read. The Freaky First Encounters was really good, I learnt some new Davros Facts from the quiz, some interesting info on the Sontarans and nice behind the scenes pictures from Series 7 filming. I think they should take out the jokes though – they’re quite pointless!
