    Just got it today in WH Smith’s and was really surprised that they still actually had a issue left. The vinyl is the main reason I bought it as I don’t really tend to buy the magazine anymore but might start buying it again as this issue seems quite good

    Has anyone received a copy of the magazine with the vinyl missing? I bought my copy from ebay as I couldn’t get in in the shops and there is no vinyl in it. I’m wondering if it was a fault of the manufactures or if I’ve been conned

      Sounds like a con-I find it very unlikely one wouldn’t have been packed, and I know from searching for a particular Big Finish in the last special edition that these cardboard sleeves can be resealed like they’ve never been opened.

      Hi Colin I brought 2 from eBay too and there was no vinyl in each of them. I mentioned this too seller and it has happened to a lot of them on there

      To be fair if you bought it of eBay, they may have bought it with the Vinyl and sold the rest on eBay after keeping it.

      Not had it with Doctor Who merchandise, but Marvel march I have had that with

    DWM has just tweeted:’ The limited edition is selling so fast that many branches of WH Smith have already sold out and there’s no stock for the online Panini Store!’ … so looks like anyone wanting it will need to hit the high street now.

    Do you think that once it is up for sale on the Panini website you will be able to buy it for a long time, or there will be limited stock?

      I’m wondering what amount they have lost in Sales due to it not being online? As the 5,000 Copies are a WHSmith Exclusive they may have a deal in place to guarantee sales to WHSmith first?

    I’m really curious about the bookmark! I know it’s Resurrection/Revelation of the Daleks on either side – but what specifically? Is it just the cover design for the new novelisations? Or a still from the episodes?

    I hate to say it, but this might be the last issue I buy. The vinyl is good, as are the downloads, but the magazine just isn’t giving me what I want. The features aren’t long enough, it’s taken a very condescending tone under Marcus Hearn’s leadership (I don’t need to be reminded in every caption that Jodie Whittaker is the current Doctor), and I can’t believe a cover feature interview with David Tennant is TWO PAGES LONG. I didn’t need to read more of Eric Saward or Howard Burden after the last issue and the Costume Design special, and the Malorie Blackman interview would have been better longer too. So thanks, DWM, and I wish you the best for the future.

      I stopped collecting Dr Who magazine 5 issues ago up till then had got every issue but for me it’s the price and what we are getting in it, I’m with you on the tone and articles just not the same anymore might be for some but that’s just my opinion.

      Deborah, it’s a promotion asked for by and agreed with WHSmith. Unfortunately if Panini were to give this to subscribers as well, there’s a good chance WHS would lose interest in the deal (for not having the exclusivity factor to drive enough sales to their stores) and walk away. Panini’s view is subscribers get other things instead (exclusive ‘clean’ covers and at a cheaper per-issue price than the face value £5.99). I understand the frustration though.

      Thanks for that, my frustration now though is having to buy another copy to get the vinyl. It’s my 17 year old sons subscription.

    Just got mine and i cant wait to give the vinyl a listen too, I have a feeling some people will buy multiple of these and then sell them for more money because of the exclusive vinyl

      The bookmark has Resurrection of the Daleks on one side and Revelation of the Daleks on the other incase you are confused, i was expecting a bookmark with the Tardis on or something but still its only a bookmark
