      Actually, it’s in a fortnight. They are taking a christmas break. and for issue 100 and issue 200 it was 100 or 200 gobsmacking weho facts. So that’s probably what they are going to do for issue 300.

    • Esterath

      December 16th, 2012 - 4:17pm

      That would be lazy and the facts aren’t even good!

    • Cameron47

      December 16th, 2012 - 5:47pm

      if they are doing 300 gobsmacking who facts it will probably take up three quarters of the mag.

    • Esterath

      December 16th, 2012 - 5:50pm

      Increased page count?

    • Doctor Rules

      December 16th, 2012 - 5:54pm

      They never do an increased page issue. For issue 200 it was the same 36 paged mag. the 200 facts took about 21 pages.

    • Esterath

      December 16th, 2012 - 5:57pm

      They have done increased page counts before.

    • Doctor Rules

      December 16th, 2012 - 6:04pm

      ok. but anyway i think 300 facts will be useless. i remembrr one from last timr. TARDIS stands for Time and Relative Dimension In Space. Very wierd. even younger kids will know that! 😆 Theys hould have a party. Pyut party hats on every perosn image in the mag and instead of the monster watch (the thing where you ahve to write the page number sof the monsters) you should ahve to find hidden jammie dodgers and all of that! That would be way better! And they could ahve a joke page showing monsters and their favourite party food. 😀

    I’m getting the mag tomorrow. Will someone tell me what you can get for mystery gifts? It sounds exciting! In issue 296 i got a Prisoner zero monster grabber, Dalek Trainer Bag and Monster Invasion cards. so tell me, what can you get for mystery gifts in this issue?

    • Doctor Rules

      December 15th, 2012 - 5:10pm

      The mystery gifts can be anything. I got a meaga mixed set which includes a slitheen whoppee cushion, cyberman yo yo, living flesh pot, 6 puffy monster stickers, colouring pencils, compass, monster puzzle cube, geronimo wristband, TARDIS keyring, mouldy green monster eyes and weeping angel shoelaces. Some people below got mixed stationary sets, deadly 60 cards, mobile phone kits, money banks and more.

    • Cameron47

      December 15th, 2012 - 5:12pm

      oh thanks. that mega mixed set that you got sounds really cool. I hiope i don’t get deadly 60 cards :roll:. But anyway, i’m buying it myself so if it has deadly 60 cards I’ll buy another one. 😀

    • Doctor Rules

      December 15th, 2012 - 5:15pm

      It is quite strange why they do deadly 60 cards. i feel sorry for the people who got them. I’ve saw a mag in tesco that ahd deadly 60 cards and a squirty sonic screwdriver. But anyway, some people are saying they got two differnet things. I thought it officilay siad mystery ‘gift’ not mystery ‘gifts’ Mine was a set so that counts as one.

    • Sonic Doctor

      December 15th, 2012 - 5:17pm

      I like deadly 60 cards. For my mystery gift I got a davros mask and some davros claws. Quite cool 🙂

      The mystery gifts are from gifts from previous issues of the Magazine that they never sold!

    A great issue, sahme its not a bumper christmas issue as like they have done in the past. I thought it might be this week or no next week when they took there two week brake.

    I hope because they have mentioned its the 300th issue (to which I have all of them from one onwards) for next time, that they do something to celebrate it.

    Anyone elses subscription copy stickers damaged because of the way it was delivered

    I stopped buying once it reached 200 cos I got fed up being given a free gift that came with a previous issue or two, but I do like to take a look inside the magazine still when ever I visit WH Smith, Asda or Tesco just to see whats inside.

    Wasn’t Doctor Who Adventures out every 2 weeks originally ?. I’m sure it didn’t start coming out every single Thursday when it started with issue 1 back in 2006.
