SFX Collection: Doctor Who – A Celebration

magaine-sfxspecialedselebrationSFX Collection: Doctor Who – A Celebration

The latest one-off special issue – on sale 30 November – is a celebration of all things Doctor Who.

It’s been two and a half years since we last produced a special devoted to Doctor Who – good grief, has it really been that long? – so we figured it was high time that we did another.

Doctor Who: A Celebration is the end result.

100% unofficial and independent, it’s an 132-page magazine which comes with three free gifts: a genuine bow tie (not a naff plastic novelty – a proper fabric one!), and two slogan badges (and they’re big ‘uns too – each five centimetres in diameter), all tucked inside a card wallet.

Inside the 132-page magazine inside, you’ll find all of the following:

EXCLUSIVE CAST INTERVIEWS

We speak to Matt Smith, Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill about series five, the Christmas special, and how their characters have developed.

100 THINGS WE LOVE ABOUT WHO

A bumper-sized feature which runs down just a few of the gazillion reasons why we adore this series with a passion bordering on insanity. And if you’re thinking this’ll be some dreary roll call of the bleedin’ obvious, think again…

MY LIFE AS A DALEK

Voice of the Daleks Nick Briggs and Dalek operator Barnaby Edwards spill the beans on what it’s like bringing the series’ greatest monsters to life.

RTD VS MOFFAT

Who’s the best producer – Russell T Davies or Steven Moffat? That’s the big question when it comes to the modern-day series. There’s only way to decide, of course… fiiiiiiiiight! Oh alright, a reasoned debate on the matter…

COSTUME DESIGNS

Series five costume designer Ray Holman talks us through some of his work, with drawings for the likes of the Eleventh Doctor and a Silurian warrior, and a smattering of behind-the-scenes photos.

AUTHORS ON WHO

A trio of opinion pieces penned by a triumvirate of SF & fantasy titans. Discworld overlord Sir Terry Pratchett, Elric creator Michael Moorcock and hard SF boffin Stephen Baxter share their memories of Who, and try to put their finger on the series’ ineffable magic.

KATY MANNING

As Jo Grant, who travelled alongside the Third Doctor, she was one of the series’ best-loved companions; now she’s earned a legion of new fans thanks to her appearance on The Sarah Jane Adventures. Katy Manning talks to us about Jon Pertwee, Matt Smith and those naughty photos of her and a Dalek…

    Looking forward to this because I used to have a real bow tie, but it broke when I was putting it on once.

    Nice – always prefer reading an independent view of the show. DWM is very good….but a tad biased…they’re never going to give a show or DVD or actor a poor review or hard time.
