Doctor Who Adventures issue 261

Doctor Who Adventures issue 261

Can’t stop! Being chased!

By things that look a bit like lobsters, only each one’s the size of a house.

They’re not really lobsters, they’re Snee. ‘Hello” said to them, all nicely.

But of course in Snee, ‘Hello’ means something quite rude.

So, you keep reading, I’ll keep running.

Deal? Waaah!

Also inside…

*Tick tock goes the clock
*Disaster plans
*Crystal Brawl!
*The Doctors fast facts
*Play with us – Forever!
*The punch and Judy trap (comic)
*Clock work and much more…

This weeks issue comes with a free mystery mask, foil poster and surprise gift. (in our case a smiler mask and Death Riders Book)

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!

    I think copies from Tesco come with a whoopee coushin because:
    a) My copy came from Tesco
    b) All the ones I felt were the same as my one with the whoopee coushin

      I feel sorry for you! I hate getting it from Tesco, because they change the gifts! I remember last summer it was coming out with a CB micro figure, and I got stickers and a rubbishy Winder thing (you press the key so the head turns)!!!

    • Bow tie of Doom

      March 24th, 2012 - 9:26am

      I don’t really mind what free gift I get. All I hope is that it’s good and interests me in some way.

    • The Stetson of Chaos

      March 24th, 2012 - 10:17am

      But it’s annoying when you’ve already had it. I had that!

    • The supreme

      March 24th, 2012 - 12:45pm

      Ive had the winder smiler thing before and the stickers

      Not true my copy from tesco had the cyberman mask and the doctor who playing cards (the cartoony ones from a while back) 🙂

      My Dad felt the only other issue they had left too and we think that one was either the notebook set or the deathriders book as it definitely felt like a book of some kind.

  • The supreme

    March 23rd, 2012 - 10:03pm

    I got the Death Rider book and the smiler mask

  • The Stetson of Chaos

    March 23rd, 2012 - 6:42am

    May I just ask, which are the three masks except the Smiler one??

    And off topic but is it a holiday in the UK? I don’t think it is, but here in Greece it is today. Not holiday for me though, I have a show in school and I’m singing a solo.

    Also booboo is it worth it subscribing to DWA??


    • booboo

      March 23rd, 2012 - 8:02am

      you save money and you get it early so yes, and no holiday here

    • The Stetson of Chaos

      March 23rd, 2012 - 10:32am

      Ok thanks. Sang about an hour ago, it did well! 🙂

    The three different masks with this issue, have we had them before?

    I normally buy the “printed-on-cover” variants, but 3 different masks is a bit much and I spent 15 minutes trying to distinguish some tonight in Coop only to settle for one copy for now. I never open the sealed ones, so it is an added challenge.

    • Bow tie of Doom

      March 22nd, 2012 - 6:46pm

      Yes, we’ve had them before. I got an Ood. 🙂

      March 21st, 2012 - 6:44pm

      if you mean “The Daleks will be returning in the autumn series” bit it was Doctor Who magazine who said that, its not from an article, all the other quotes were made today at the press conference
