Doctor Who Adventures issue 260

Doctor Who Adventures issue 260

It’s a cracking day, isn’t it?

I’m sat on the most beautiful beach on Planet Cool (although no-one is wearing a bow tie).

Amy and Rory are building sandcastles and all is right with the universe.

For once. It would be a bit boring, to be honest, if I weren’t reading Who Adventures!

Hurrah!

Also inside…

*Vroom! Vroom!
*Monster arms and armour
*Craig’s calamities
*Spot the difference
*Regeneration
*The demons of Repton Abbey (comic)
*Building The Doctors Cot and much more

This weeks issue comes with The Doctors geronimo kit including a mask, sonic screwdriver badge and keyring.

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.

There’s always loads of excitement, action, adventure and fun! Doctor Who Adventures is a must-have for young fans of the successful BBC series!

This magazine is written for and aimed at children in the 6-12 years old age range.

It is specifically targeted at a core age group of 7-8 year olds.

    The Closing Time poster and The Night Terrors one a few weeks ago were the covers on the two DVD’S from Series 6 Part 2, but in the Night Terrors one, Rory isn’t on it and George’s eyes are open. 🙂

    Oh, was Matt on Top Gear? I’ll have to find the vid (we get TG in Australia… but it’s not current… usually months/years behind the UK).

    He looks a bit petrified in that pic lol. 😛

      Really? What shops were they? At least I have a few shops near me that stock stuff, the rest I have to get online.

    • booboo

      March 13th, 2012 - 9:36pm

      Tesco, Asda and Sainsbury’.

      locally they have always been poor on Doctor Who stuff.

      We live in Cheltenham which is quite a big town but apart from the entertainer which doesn’t keep much there is absolutely no where to buy stuff here.

    • Bow tie of Doom

      March 13th, 2012 - 9:38pm

      Shocking! The same goes for my Toys R Us, there are the same old boring figures (Smiler Francesco, Stetson Doctor etc) and NO flesh wave figures! Why? Why??? 🙁

    • Bow tie of Doom

      March 13th, 2012 - 9:44pm

      My local Tesco has a TARDIS pencil case, CB series 2 figures and Magic of the Angels Quick Read book. Another Tesco near me has Pandorica figures and CB series 2 figures. My local Sainsburys is quite good for the new series adventures books as they get them in on day of release and they do sell some good Who DVD’s. They also have figures except they are just Uncle, Idris and Stetson and Straightjacket Doctors. My Asda is good for DVD’s and books, but all they have in terms of figures is just CB series 2 and the Flesh goo pod.

    • Bow tie of Doom

      March 13th, 2012 - 9:50pm

      Oh and of course they do all sell Doctor Who Magazines apart from my two Tescos. One sells Adventures and (I think) MI. The other sells DWA and MI, although they’ve stopped stocking DWM recently. Sainsburys and ASDA sell all Magazines that are DW related which are out at the moment.

    • BOOBOO JR

      March 13th, 2012 - 9:52pm

      Sainsburys near me used to be quite good, but now they’ve sold all the stuff all off. I’m hoping this is to make room for the new CB stuff. Tesco near me is hopeless, full price Pandorica Wave figures and that’s it. As for Asda, there’s nothing at all. The Entertainer near me seems to have sold everything off too, again, I hope it’s to make room for new stuff.

      I live in small town and my local Co-Op sells DWA and DWMI cards and my local Tesco sells Character Building figures (Doctor Who and HM Armed Forces) , Doctor Who stationary and DWA. But thats all I can buy in walking distances.

      i only go to asda, since it is nearer to me, and we have all the big supermarkets in basingstoke, asda have figures for £14.97 and they are ones that nobody gets because they already have them: cybermats bearded doctor(not got it) they have some cb series two and loads (i mean whole boxes full) of flesh goo pods.

    Based on the cover of the mag, this is how Victory of the Daleks could have been:
    Ironside: Behold, the restoration of the Daleks! The resurrection of the master race!!
    Doctor: Rassilons Beard! Washing machines!
    Scientist: Alert! Unidentified Dalek clothing detected!
    Drone: Exterminate!
    Scientist: Alert! Multiple unidentified Dalek clothing detected!
    Supreme: Cleanse the unclean! Total obliteration!!

      There is always that scene out of that Big Finish play with the advert for Dalek washing powder.

      “Exterminate those germs!”

      It’s a shame the Doctor didn’t have any Calgon when running away from that Stone Dalek. 🙂

    I collected the first 250 issues, and it was okay until issue 220, when it started to become more for much younger DW fans. Guttted.

    Cool cover! They can talk about Top Gear, Little Britan, Gavin and stacey, Come fly with me and Corrie and Estenders but they don’t do anything about Torchwood! Bit bizaree. Little Britain is a 15! I suppose they are making it for older readers. 7-15? Also is the Ultimate Monster Poster Diesesed Humans? Can anyone put it on this page?
