Doctor Who Adventures issue 257

Don’t you love Jam?

I think I like raspberry best, although I need to do more experiments to be sure.

And I don’t just mean eating it.

Jam is also useful for pouring over Neptune’s bees.

It clogs their wings, means they can’t fly and gives the bees a tasty, nutritious meal that isn’t people.

Also inside…

    Glass Dalek. Is Ultimate Dalek! If anyone doesn’t know what that is it’s that weird mutant dalek from Revelation Of The Daleks.

    Has the Matt’s secrets page replaced the 13 (or 14 if the Christmas special is included) week episode guide which would normally happen at the end of each series?

    • booboo

      February 21st, 2012 - 5:00pm

      seems like it

    • cjayp33

      February 21st, 2012 - 8:45pm

      I much preferred that then this as this is a waste of 2 pages (its full of picture) and tells me nothing new, not to mention looking out of place with all the other stuff. I shall email them to complain about this and let you know what they say.

  • I’m the doctor

    February 21st, 2012 - 4:08pm

    the bit about jam reminds me of hacker t dog’s song: sandwiches are mainly bread but you can put stuff in ’em, you can put jam in ’em… etc
    also; last time they gave away deadly 60 cards i got 2 of the same 🙁 hope i don’t this time.

    Booboo, does the ‘top companions’ cover Rose, Donna, Sarah etc. I’m getting bored of constantly reading about Amy and Rory now.

    • booboo

      February 21st, 2012 - 1:27pm

      it covers Amy, Rory, Christina, Wilf, Martha and Craig. Interestingly there is a whole page on the 1st Doctor and his regeneration

    • moxx of who

      February 21st, 2012 - 1:51pm

      So they forget Sarah jane, Rose, Donna, Mickey and Captian Jack then? That’s bad. Christina was only in one episode and she would have been a good companion but you can’t forget Rose who was in 3 series and Donna and ofcourse Sarah Jane and Captian Jack. Craig’s a little bit of a companion. More of a guest ompanion like christina and Wilf.

    • Judooning

      February 21st, 2012 - 2:43pm

      Hmm strange about selecting those certian companions. I wonder if they will continue it next week.

      And a whole page on the 1st Doctor sounds brilliant! Lets hope we get one for each doctor.

    • moxx of who

      February 21st, 2012 - 2:49pm

      Maybe. They need more stuff on old who and not all new who. How many times last year have they repeated stuff about Daleks, Cybermen and the Silence. It does get boring and to be honest It the Daleks are getting boring and the Cybermen are getting dull . I love the Slitheen, Peg Dolls and the Sontarans . They should do episode guides for series 1 as they never did before.I have collected this since 2006. They could redo stuff for people who only started to collect last year or when Matt Smith first joined.

      Boo boo is right beacause ive got the mag martha jones,wilfred mott,lady christina de souza,craig owens,amy pond and rory williams are the top companions from the new series
