Doctor Who Adventures issue 262

Doctor Who Adventures issue 262

Ha ha! I love April Fool’s Day.

I say I married a Sontaran war Lord and you have to believe me, then we eat a cake.

Is that what happens?

It’s what should happen.

All right, I’ve never really married a Sontaran. Got engaged to a Cyberman once, though.

Ha ha! No I didn’t!

April Fool! Got you!

Also inside…

*Toby’s teaser

      I’d say DWMI was higher in terms of age rating as it’s less childish (not an insult) than DWA. It should be aimed at around 6-13 in my opinion.

      It is interesting how many adults buy this as a collectors piece. I buy it, and its variants every week since issue 1, and seldom open the magazine, and never open the gifts.

      The “collector’s age” is greater or even far greater than the reading age.

      This is what I think:

      Monster Invasion: 7-13
      Adventures: 7-11
      Magazine: All, starting from 9.
      DVD Files: All.
      Insider (cancelled now): 9-15

      This is what I think:

      Monster Invasion: 6 – 15
      Adventures: 5 – 11
      Magazine: 12 – onwards
      Insider (cancelled now): 9-15

      Interesting choices, volcanic7383, although why is everyone putting 4 and 5 year olds when they can’t read very well (especially DW language, like Wibbly Wobbly Timey Wimey lol!) 😀

      There is some mild language in it at times. It’s usually censored though with * to replace the letters.

      It’s still my favourite magazine though, no matter what. To echo what Matt Smith once said as well: “DWM is dear to us all. It’s our favourite publication.”

    Has to be one of the best “gift presentations” we have had with DWA.

    I love the fact that they are trying to get the probable market of young children to get in to the classic series, as the mag is showing a lot more features on it!

      No,the pictures of the Doctors are saying random stuff that are supposed to be funny. I think that pages was meant to be on page 8 judging by Doctor Eight.

      Ultimate Monster collection has terrible packaging. The figures are great, but it’s the box that spoils it. They just fly everywhere when you open it! 🙁
      Next weeks looks interesting though where we will see River’s diary come to an end…maybe! Spoilers! 😉

    Booboo, has this magazine gone up again, or is it because of the gift? It is usually £2.50. Also, what doctor who magazines do you recomend to a 12 year old dr who fan? Only reason im asking is because i am thinding dr who adventures a bit too young for me and the gifts are continuously the same, and i personally dont think it isnt good value for money. What do you think? Please reply

      I reckon Doctor Who Magazine from Panini. It are totally better because it gives you new series updates, comic strip, and new merchandise news, not to mention they love to talk about the classics. It is £4.50 but is out every 4 weeks. Hope this helps!

    • The Stetson of Chaos

      I only buy Monster Invasion and sometimes Doctor Who Adventures. Although Magazine is for older fans, I recommend that along with Doctor Who Monster Invasion. 🙂

      Doctor Who Adventures goes up and down like a yo-yo £2.10, £2.25, £2.40, £2.50, £2.65 and £2.99 all in the space of 6 months. but its never uniform.

  • thedoctorwillseeyounow

    March 28th, 2012 - 5:41pm

    It takes them so long to announce things because the mag is printed in advance and they don’t like to give out too many spoilers. We’ll probably hear about Jenna in a Later April Issue! Thanks for reading

    Hardly been any stickers so far! Maybe for Issue 300 we could a reprint of issue 1 of DWA, like DWM did for issue 350 except it was a reprint of issue 1 of DWM.

      Probably not for a while since the magazine is printed in advance. Although, I do keep wondering why it took 2 months for them to announce Amy and Rory’s departure.

      The weeping angels have been done to a new sculpt as they are thinner and more flimsy.

    Amazing cover! I have two questions though:
    They’ve already done a landscape version of The Doctor, The Widow and The Wardrobe poster, why would they do it again in a portrait version?
    Also, is the Toby’s Teaser part about The Gunslinger?
