    Just had a reply to my email I sent last night about issues 80-90 there reply is “They will be running the same way it always has so you’ll still get a monthly delivery of 2 issues a month.” so there you have it. right from the company so there will still be 2 issues a month up till Feb when it finishes.

    this is odd I have issue 79 volume 41 Colin Baker Stories 139 – 142. And on the Forbidden Planet web site its not out till the Sept 23rd? I think this is an error well I’m hopeing it is.

      I think its an error as the 23rd of Sept is a Sunday and if issue 80 is out it should be on the 19th of Sept.

      This all dates back to the issue of the series that went wrong (printed with incorrect spine) and had to be rescheduled – it was put back and the next two issues brought forward. The FP site seems to have got every issue’s release date wrong since then.

    I hope it’s an error and that they aren’t slowing the release rate down. Much as I love the books I just want the set completing asap.

    This is odd, from October they seem to be one volume a month rather than every two weeks. Can anyone clarify this?

      I’m just wondering if it’s deliberate? As Issue # 90 won’t be out until July 2019 that would be 7 extra months that they could extend the Set by. So they could in theory cover Jodie’s first season as the 13th Doctor?

      FP have the last 10 books for order which people asked us to let them Know when this happened as they didn’t have them listed before and a lo of people order from there. So for them this is an update and hopefully useful one.
