      August 11th, 2012 - 6:39pm

      Interesting that today I checked one Tesco which still had last week’s version. I happened to visit another one, inspired by the Olympics, and cycled a round 9 mile trip to get a salad, and was delighted to be rewarded with this find. Took me four attempts to get a set of 2x Β£2.99 versions, so technically 6 including Tesco. Sainsbury’s version is standard, but I am not sure about Asda if anyone can comment on their purchase from there.

    I wish I lived in England so I could get these!
    What would be better getting a subscription to this or doctor who magazine?

    • Mels

      August 8th, 2012 - 8:19am send these internationally, but their packaging is a bit… flimsy.

      It’s a hard call between DWA and DWM because they are very different magazines. Go for DWM if you love reading articles and a lot of info on classic Who too. If you like a more light-hearted mag with novelties, then go DWA.

      I personally love DWA… but I’m a big kid lol. πŸ˜›

    • sonnytaran

      August 9th, 2012 - 10:48am

      Yeh. I love DWA and I think the comic is much better.
      The mag is much funnier. I only get MI for th cards not the mag.
      DW is a bit to much reading,

    • Esterath

      August 9th, 2012 - 11:41am

      How’s the comic better in DWA than DWM? I’d like to hear your opinion. Personally I think DWM comic is more like Doctor Who. DWa is more like TV Comic from the 60s.

    Next weeks free gifts:
    Monster Stickers- awesome
    Sontaran Stamper- cool
    Ganger Bouncy ball- fantastic
    Silent Magnet- brilliant
    Silurian Badge- super
    Cyber Keyring- amazing!

    And Extreme Cards! DWA is getting better and better each week πŸ˜€

    • MadGuyInATARDIS

      August 8th, 2012 - 12:28am

      I’d have to disagree. Sorry but DWA used to have good gifts… ow they only use old ones, re-designed old ones, and stuff based on old ones. Also used to love the magazine itself but not so much anymore… maybe it’s because I’m too old for it now.. I dunno!

    • Doctor Who Crazy Ross

      August 8th, 2012 - 5:35pm

      the only thing redesigned next week is the cyber head keyring really, and even that looks new. And this week there is nothing old. I think it has more new series secrets and activities than before but this magazine is for the 6-12 year olds. (although I’m 13)

    • Anonymous

      August 8th, 2012 - 11:47pm

      The stickers were the stamp designs. And the badges and balls get boring after a while dont they?

  • moxx of who

    August 7th, 2012 - 4:59pm

    cool cover. Whats the mega moment this week? Whats werewolf breakout and is it only 11th doctor heroes in hall of heroes or others?

    • moxx of who

      August 11th, 2012 - 11:36am

      Why did they just cover 11th Doctor companions and heroes? Do Rose, Martha, Donna, Sarah Jane and Captian Jack not exist in the whoniverse anymore? DWA only covers Matt Smith stuff where as DWM AND DWMI cover everything. Its actually a suprise or shock to see DWA cover anything before Matt Smiths time anymore!!!! And the covers are getting bad agian. Rorys arm in the cover is actually the Doctors wit his watch!!!

    • Give me a Dalek any day

      August 11th, 2012 - 12:33pm

      DWA has covered Rose, Martha, Donna etc…when they were on the show! Now that the Eleventh Doctor is here, it’s only right they cover stuff from his era (with the occasional nod to the past, and, to be honest, I’ve noticed a lot more stuff from the past in a lot of recent issues). Besides, if DWA are gonna cover anything from the past, they should do the Classic Series.

    • moxx of who

      August 12th, 2012 - 5:04pm

      I suppose they did have Rose, Martha, Donna etc in the mag from 2006 -2010 before matt smith joined so they probably get a bit bored of covering them all the time. Plus even though SJA has stopped they should do more about it. DWM and DWMI do. DWA’s tribute to Elisabeth Sladen was poor compared to DWM.!

    • Give me a Dalek any day

      August 12th, 2012 - 5:41pm

      Yes, there should’ve been more about SJA last year! Though DWA’s tribute to Elisabeth Sladen was small, it was good enough for me. I doubt they would ever do something like DWM. πŸ™‚

    I only recieved one pack – but I have emailed them to send me another. Because your supposed to recieve two packs with this issue.

    • booboo

      August 7th, 2012 - 11:58am

      i only got one as well – to be honest i thought 2 packs was being a bit generous when i saw it

    • cjayp33

      August 7th, 2012 - 5:38pm

      I did not know this and thought one pack was right. Not bothered about only reviving one and it is certainly something not to be querying about via email for example.

    • Charlie Webb

      August 15th, 2012 - 2:54pm

      They sent me 2 packs of cards – I only needed two although it was generous!! I also recieved an exclusive IDW Doctor Who Comic for my enquiry which I didn’t expect πŸ™‚

    Good to see we’re finally getting some Extreme cards next week instead of all these Set 1 cards.

    • The Silent Silent

      August 7th, 2012 - 2:56pm

      Ive completed extreme so i prefer set one as i need 4 cards and the infinite.

    • Daleks

      August 7th, 2012 - 4:03pm

      I need lots of set 1 and 2 and the Infinite.

    • cjayp33

      August 7th, 2012 - 5:36pm

      I want both as I need a few cards well one from set 1 and a couple from set 2 not to mention the infinates so I am happy for either.
