Doctor Who DVD File issue 128

magazine-dvd-files-1282Doctor Who DVD File issue 128

Available every fortnight, the magazine builds up into the ultimate Doctor Who Encyclopaedia.

“Doctor Who DVD Files is something unique – it’s not just a chance to collect every episode of the series since the Doctor’s return, the pull-apart magazine is incredibly ambitious.

Every fortnight you get pages packed with information and specially commissioned artwork.

    The BBC binned old Dr. Who serials, you will never have a full set!

      true, but if the collection finishes at 140 there’ll still be a lot of episodes from the 70s that won’t have been released as well at 2 seasons of Matt Smith

    They sent out a new binder around issue 120 with no instructions on how to file the contents. Is theere an official way or just DIY?

    Just got issue 131 today – Terror of the Vervoids – next fortnight is….Ultimate foe (seems obvious) the spine picture on the dvd shows one of those zombie dalek things from ‘Asylum’ so don’t know if those episodes are going to appear soon (season 6 hasn’t done yet)

      Hi Robert – this is part of the dvd files series that has been running for about 3 or 4 years with a Dr Who story released every 2 weeks. This particular issue was Unearthly Child, The Daleks has been released a few months ago. They are ‘vanilla’ releases with a magazine but some people still collect them (including me) though if you only want the stories then yes, the bbc releases are better for extras and indeed in price.

      This is An Unearthly Child and was released the week of the 50th anniversary. Since then there’s been the first two parts of Trial of a Time lord. No mention yet of whether it will go beyond issue 140 and there have been many problems with the recent issues in terms of customers not getting issues for weeks at a time.

      Same here! Is this now subscription only or can you still pick it up at newsagents?

      Selected newsagents still have it, but you won’t find them in shops often.

    • booboo

      January 3rd, 2014 - 11:08am

    • thehostproductions

      January 3rd, 2014 - 11:10am

      i phoned them when i ended my subscription and they said there was a massive hold up between 121 being made as there wasn’t many made. i got all my issues from around 121 on the 2 weeks running up to Christmas.

      January 3rd, 2014 - 11:24am
