Doctor Who Adventures issue 256

Doctor Who Adventures issue 256

Two useful things I’ve learned this week.

One: it’s quite tricky to play a xylophone when you’re underwater.

Especially if you’re underwater on the Moon of Poosh where the coral try to eat you.

Two: if you play tunes by Olly Murs, the coral want to sing along and forget to bite you.

Also inside…

*Headless Monks brain
*What’s my name
*The ultimate Dalek quiz
*Matt’s Secrets
*Faster than light (comic)
*My big fat blue life
*Destroying a Dalek ans much more…

These weeks issue comes with a Silence sketch pad, pencils and monster folder…

    • Judooning

      February 15th, 2012 - 5:32pm

      I think they shold cover stories from the classic series now we have a long gap to wait.

    • cjayp33

      February 16th, 2012 - 6:15pm

      Yep they should have at least a regular 2 page classic series focus while we wait for the new series, better then repeated stuff.

    February 15th, 2012 - 12:27pm

    DWA is getting a little boring!
    I think when there is a mega break between the show it should be out everu frotnight! It can’t keep going all the way between January – October until Series 7 airs! Can it?

    • cjayp33

      February 15th, 2012 - 5:17pm

      I agree, there is not a lot of new content so we end up with the same stuff repacked.

  • the astronaut of death

    February 14th, 2012 - 8:42pm

    i think the doctor’s real name in actualy melody pond. because i think the next time river song regenerates she regenerates into the 1st doctor

    • the silence are deadly

      February 14th, 2012 - 9:21pm

      yeah but she cant regenerate any more cos river saved the doctor in lets kill hitler by giving him her remaining regenerations

      nice idea though

    • the astronaut of death

      February 14th, 2012 - 9:26pm

    Doctor Who Adventures has run the ‘whats the doctor’s name?’ thing twice already! I think he doesn’t even have a name, to be honest.

      February 14th, 2012 - 5:53pm

      It was revealed in an annual decades ago, but it was a series of Greek letters and numbers, so it was technically unpronouncable to the human tongue.
