Doctor Who Adventures issue 280

Doctor Who Adventures issue 280

Are you all glued to your tellies watching the Olympics?

Strictly speaking I don’t normally like sport. Too much lunging. And bow ties don’t go well with shorts.

But the first Games in Ancient Greece were a belter! I took bronze in the 500m chariot race and a gang of Auton Romans tried to sneak in to the competition.

It was so hot their plastic Feet melted and they got stuck to the ground! Have a good week and beware of stray panthers!

Also inside…

*Doctor forever
*Death by Daleks
*Crazy animal giggles
*The scorching quiz
*Who are you kidding

      You have to email your pictures to m6rmw@aol.com with the name of your collection in the subject. You can also write a bit about your collection in the email too if you want.

    What do they mean aimed at a core group of 7-8 year olds. That’s still wrong.

    They say it’s only aimed at 6-12 year olds. That’s wrong, it should be aimed at all ages!

      Was there a hole in the bag when you brought it if so someone’s probably taken the card without buying the magazine

    I love the silence will fall card.
    Just put it in my online TARDIS.
    The card is so cool. 😎

    Also the puzzle book is cool too.It said in the next time in the last mag 16 pages but it’s 14 pages. 😳

    I like the pencil case.I got the one with the doctor who dw sign on it. 😀

    Last of all the big yo-yo,TARDIS bouncey ball,the pencils and the pen.:)

      You have to really watch Dr who closely to be able to do the quiz. Just guessing that because I dont have the magazine.

    Why do they always give away stationary with this magazine?????

    • cjayp33

      August 3rd, 2012 - 3:57pm

      they produce 52 weeks a year so providing a (new) gift for every issue is difficult hence why we get lots of different stationary designs.

      I hope I get the hero set next week (I subscribe so won’t get a choice)

      Same here! I don’t care about Doctor Who Adventures really, not much in it and it costs a lot. But it’s worth it for the card and the packets of cards as well.
