    • crazy guy

      April 21st, 2011 - 7:54am

      i think they actualy complted series 5 becuase it is sussposed to be on in winter 2011 and in one of dwa mag last year something abouth sarahjane adventures said they have all ready started filming- rip elizibeth sladen

    • Anonymous

      April 21st, 2011 - 8:19pm

      The first six episodes are actually ready for broadcast, but the final six were just about to go in front of the cameras when Elisabeth Sladen died.

    • The Silence

      April 21st, 2011 - 8:36pm

      What They should do is show the first 3 episode of Series 5 then write new episodes 4 5 and 6 without sarah jane and in ep 4 Rani+clyde find out she is dead and maybe realease the original 4 5 and 6 as novels

    • Anonymous

      April 23rd, 2011 - 2:43pm

      I think it would be slightly better if she went away to save the Earth from some other location leaving Clyde and Rani in the show, rather than killing her off off screen (which some people might see as a bit disrespectful to her memory).

  • ross campbell

    April 20th, 2011 - 6:00pm

    This is actually the most tragic year of doctor who the new series hasn’t even started and yet we have lost 3 doctor who stars
    1. The Brigadier.
    2. The Celestial Toymaker
    3. And now Sarah Jane Smith.

    I think i might cry right now.

    • doctorwhoforever

      April 20th, 2011 - 6:09pm

      I didn’t know the Celestial Toymaker had died. I thought he was due to return this series. I didn’t actually know that though.

    • Jason doctorwhoone

      April 20th, 2011 - 7:33pm

      Yeah Michael Gough is also dead, passed away aged 94 on the 17th March, but his character is ment to be played by someone else, i dont know who exactly, if offcourse the Toymaker is indeed making a return or not, just have to wait and see is all i can say.

    • LiasonIce

      April 21st, 2011 - 9:31am

      Yeah a deeply tragic year, Sarah Jane and the Brigadier were two of my favorite classic companions. R.I.P

    this is definetly a new look! Are the pages shiny now because it mentions it at the top.

    Shiny pages, lots of pictures

  • Jack

    April 20th, 2011 - 3:38pm

    The signature was used in Doctor Who Weekly in the 1970’s. It was Tom Baker’s own take on the Doctor’s “autograph” and allowed its use in the magazine. Glad they have chosen to resurrect it.

  • crazy guy

    April 20th, 2011 - 12:10pm

    BooBoo, you have made a mistake. You have claimed that this is issue 124, when it is in fact issue 214.

    • booboo

  • Jason doctorwhoone

    April 19th, 2011 - 6:45pm

    For a second i thought i was looking at the cover of a girls Magazine [ like Barbie or Smash Hits for example ] due to all the pink.

    Either that or all the male staff who produce DWA have been exterminated and the female staff have taken control, and that each future issue will involve an awfully lot of pink . . . . the singer [ Pink ] will no doubt be happen then, assuming she’s a Doctor Who fan.

    • Jason doctorwhoone

      April 19th, 2011 - 6:46pm

      ” Be happy “, not happen, sorry, i write stuff too fast sometimes, i dont notice my mistakes until it’s too late.

  • Dalekdragon

    April 19th, 2011 - 6:22pm

    I’ve got a feeling that DWA will be taking a slightly older attitude now. Still keeping the fun, family-friendly style, but a bit more like a mini, less adult, more fiction side based version of DWM. I am basing this on the cover, but… here’s hoping 🙂

    • Dalekdragon

      April 19th, 2011 - 6:24pm

      Also, since DWMI is out soon, aiming at the same audience, it may want to change its style a bit 🙂
