Doctor Who Adventures issue 253

Doctor Who Adventures issue 253


It’s not easy pretending to be dead, you know!

Last weekend, I had to divert an alien invasion, stop a star exploding and buy some new slippers, all without moving!

Still, it seems to have fooled the Silence. Unless they read Doctor Who Adventures, of course… Oh dear.

Urm… who’s this Doctor chap?

Also inside…

*Repaired Room
*Matt Smith and Steven Moffat share their show serets
*Order Order
*10 things you might not know about the silence
*The star serpent (comic)
*The amazing deaths of Rory Williams
*Who lookalikes and much more…

This week free gift is a Sonic pen and psychic paper set…

Doctor Who Adventures is a weekly magazine for young boys and girls who love Doctor Who.

The magazine immerses readers into the world of the Doctor and his friends, taking them on an adventure into time and space every week! It is packed full of monster and creature fact files, brilliant posters, behind-the-scenes secrets, competitions, comic strip action and puzzles.

      darn it! now i only have access to one doctor who themed mag. and doctor who insider was great! why cancel it?

      There’s been a lot of confuion about Doctor Who Insider. Diamond comics still has them listed up to issue 13 (they supply the United States/Australia), yet other stockists are cancelling it. Yet other sources are saying there will be an issue 10 released in February.

      My suspicion is that it’s probably been outright cancelled, but why there has been no official word is beyond me. 😕

      me to, we get nothing from panini unlike most other licenses. its terrible service to keep people in the dark, if its cancelled they should put out a official press release

    • Mels

      January 27th, 2012 - 9:43am

      Actually, just checked panini, you can’t sub DWI through their site anymore. Either cancelled or infinitely suspended. o_O
