Doctor Who DVD File issue 140

dvds-issue140Doctor Who DVD Files Issue 139

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.

    There have been no new series episodes since issue 80 which came out more than 2 and a half years ago, and the actual episodes were broadcast 4 years ago. I hope they continue the new series episodes if dvd files continues after issue 152.

      It would probably be better to finish off the earlier stories first. If it gets further than 152 I’d rather that it had no gaps, because it has to end one day so there will be “modern” stuff missing regardless (as Doctor Who will continue after the magazine ends).

    just a question for you all who get the dvd files
    if you look at the enemys section we have a few from the sarah jane aventures i have not done battle with them why are they in my enemy section .like with some from torchwood..are the powers at the bbc not saying something like the dvd files will go on to include these two series .well we can only hope as if this was to be done we would have a range that went well over 200

      Because they are still enemies, and clearly they are resistant to doing actual Doctor Who monsters. Rather they’d fill it with modern characters who are very vaguely defined as “opposing the Doctor” rather than proper villains.

    • the doctor

      October 4th, 2014 - 10:21am

      yes they still are enemies but to another series as it says on the cover DOCTOR WHO DVD FILES
      not sarah jane or torchwood …BUT

      Is that 147? Do you know what 148 will be?

    • matparks08

      August 21st, 2014 - 10:53pm

      War Games was split over two discs – got 147 today with eps 6-10 on it. 148 is Colony in Space. trying to think what we have left to get – a few of Hartnell and Troughton – but I can only think Sun Makers, Power of Kroll, Underworld, Mutants, Sontaran Experiment, Creature from the Pit, Black Orchid – is that it?

      On top of the various Hartnell/Troughton stories there is also Terror of the Zygons and The King’s Demons, and they’ve left a space in their story count on the DVD spines and episode guide pages for Shada.

      Why is that?

      August 27th, 2014 - 9:28am

      Because on the doctor who dvd files it counts The Horns of Nimon as story 38 and The Leisure Hive as 39.

    • Doctor Scouse

      August 27th, 2014 - 6:01pm

      Yes, but it has made errors before, it has 2 story 40 in the Tom Baker stories.

      August 30th, 2014 - 1:31pm

      What? I just looked at the DVDs and they are marked “Story 34” and “Story 36”. That’s a definite gap in there. Where did you get 38 and 39 from?

    I have just heard i.e. read on good authority from a highly credible source with links to Eaglemoss and staff members there that there will be no more more issues once we reach 152 issues, and that Eaglemoss therefore won’t be including every possible story up to Time of the Doctor.

      We will see, of course we won’t know the real answer until the 1st of October when the subscription website clicks over and either shows issue 153 or doesn’t.

      I wondered the same thing, considering The Invasion was over 2 issues and 2 episodes shorter. But it all seems to be in one issue, as far as I can tell

    • the doctor

      August 9th, 2014 - 3:10pm

      war games 10 eps i think they may put it over 3 issues .give them waiting time for more who dvds

    • Anonymous

      August 9th, 2014 - 5:48pm

      The War Games would still be over 2 issues if it was broken up. The Invasion was split over 2 because the proper DVD was split over 2 DVDs, same with The Trial of a Time Lord being split over four. The War Games was split over 2, so if it was to be similarly split it would be over 2.

      But as was said, there is no signs it is being broken up. In fact the blurb on the next time page describes the events of episode 9 as part of the plot.

      Nobody knows, and probably won’t know until its in the shops or subscribers get it (depending on whether the shop buyers want to share it with us all or torment us further).
