Doctor Who Adventures issue 287

Sorry! Slightly out of breath.I just nipped back to Henry VIII’s en suite to try and retrieve Rory’s phone charger (honestly, those Ponds!) when Anne Boleyn challenged me to a game of darts.

You know me, never one to turn down a challenge! Fast forward two hours and 17 guards mere chasing me around the Hampton Court maze. Thank Boe I parked the TARDIS in the centre. Which reminds me, I must get a hedge setting for the sonic. And a chocolate lemonade setting. And a knitting setting!

Also inside…

    I stopped getting this once I got the 200th issue as it was getting a bit tiresome and giving the same old free gifts all the time, but at times I like to look inside, and this time I glad I had, cos the comic-strip [Dawn of Time] really shocked me by showing the Doctor, Amy and Rory going back through the different incarnations of the Tardis console room all the way back to the 1963 original !!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Pity that couldn’t have happened in an actual episode, even thou last years ‘The Doctors Wife’ did give us a chance to see the old 9th/10th Docto

      Bit inappriorate having a naked woman in it!

    • Jason doctorwhoone

      September 20th, 2012 - 5:58pm

      She sort off does appear ‘naked’ but she said she was made by Rassilon so she’s clearly an android.

      Then again look at ‘Earthshock’ and ‘The Five Doctors’, both stories featured androids that could be viewed in someway as ‘naked’.

      but since the android is just an android with nothing to really expose, it’s not a problem, otherwise they wouldn’t have the character in the comic-strip.

    • Esterath

      September 20th, 2012 - 6:00pm

      They covered up the rude parts.

    • moxx of who

      September 21st, 2012 - 2:38pm

  • Mr Evil Fez

    September 19th, 2012 - 4:17pm

    Cool posters!
    The cover is great too!

    • Mr Evil Fez

      September 19th, 2012 - 4:21pm

      I have too many Doctor Who notebooks because of this magazine. ๐Ÿ™„

  • That Cyborg over there

    September 19th, 2012 - 4:05pm

    Glad they decided to have a cover for A Town Called Mercy. Sometimes, DWA like to dedicate a cover to the next episode when it’s almost the end of the series (or half of a series).

    That will probably be the case next week, though! Move over cubes, the Weeping Angels are coming back! ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Alex The Geek

      September 20th, 2012 - 6:46am

      Hmm I remember when I used to read this regularly Midnight got bumped off to have Rose and Donna for Turn Left.

    • Moxx of who

      September 21st, 2012 - 2:40pm

      They also never did a cover for Amys chocie and had daleks on it and never did a cover for vincent and the doctor and had daleks on that to!

  • moxx of who

    September 19th, 2012 - 12:40pm

    Great cover though theres not anything about the power of three on the cover?! No ‘new episode preiview’ writing on the front.

    • booboo

      September 19th, 2012 - 12:41pm

      there is a big feature inside

    • Moxx of who

      September 19th, 2012 - 10:28pm

      ok. Thats good.

  • Doctor Who Crazy Ross

    September 19th, 2012 - 10:49am

    I love this cover!!!

  • CG

    September 19th, 2012 - 10:25am
