    Just got 152 and sadly it really IS the last issue, the inside cover that usually tells us what’s coming next is a farewell message from the Doctor Who Files Team. Must be honest it’s a pretty shoddy way of finishing off when there are such a large number yet to be released, and with the website offering 153 and 154 too. Sad

      152 is Black Orchid. I’m gutted, I’m missing 2 issues where my subscription stopped for no reason and started back up again a few weeks later and might never get them. But on the other hand, the material in the magazines have been wearing a bit thin lately on the content side. Although it’s nice it ended on the 12th Doctor

      Personally I think it’s incredibly irritating of them if they have ended it where they have left it. I wonder if BBC Worldwide told them to leave several box sets partially completed to get people to buy the whole thing.

      Subscribed to this series, received issues 148 and 149 recently (finally).

      Also, recent payment taken out for only one issue/5.99 as well.

      Sent them a query asking if the series would be continuing but no response yet. Previously, whenever they extended the series they sent out an email advising of new payment/delivery schedules, but no word this time.

      Strangely, the’ve updated the starting number on their subscription page. It gives you the choice of begining your subscription with issue 150,151,152,153 or 154.

      I’m presuming you have issue 151, and was just wondering if on the alternative spine of the DVD cover (the blue background one), it reads The Wars Games instead of Terror of the Zygons? Mine does, and I keep noticing little errors and inconsistencies, and I was just wondering if it was the same for everyone.

    • Anonymous

      October 16th, 2014 - 12:14am

      Because issue 151 came out in shops today, so anyone who bought it will be able to see the “Next Issue” bit.

      Also, the subscription page has updated to 154 (a one issue extension would seem odd, but we have to assume the worst until we get a formal figure).

    • Anonymous

      October 16th, 2014 - 3:35pm

      Can’t wait to see what issue 153 is going to be. Part of me hopes that it is a black and white story (because I love those episodes for some odd reason) and the other part of me hopes it is a more recent Matt Smith story. What do you guys (or girls) think?

    • cjayp33

      October 16th, 2014 - 6:18pm

      It could just be that the site automatically updates every 2 weeks adding another issue so for now I would take the official line of 152 issues only as the truth.

    • Anonymous

    • Anonymous

      October 5th, 2014 - 3:03pm

      They won’t be able to even cover Capaldi until they get their rights updated, which would be rather foolish to do in the middle of a series, otherwise they’d only have some of the episodes.

      And no, it isn’t subscription only, it is just that most shops stop stocking it after a few issues, the ones that remain only do so because somebody has especially asked them to do so.

      Somewhere between 25-30, depending on how they feel about including reconstructions (the space for Shada probably confirms they are considering it) and what happens with The Underwater Menace as a proper release.

      October 2nd, 2014 - 9:50pm

      Ok so in total if there’s about 25-30 then there would at least be 200 if it keeps going on if we include season 6&7 of matt smiths episode.

      I really hope they do keep going past 153.

      They stopped updating the main site before issue 60 (including their “coming soon” list), subscription page is still maintained and the back pages list gets an occasional update.

      No confirmed issue numbers and no list either, they took to just updating the Wikipedia page but that was deleted on the grounds of advertising. Really your best bet for up to date news is the comments here.

      I wouldn’t exactly say its much to be celebrating over. If the collection does end at 152 then we’ll be stuck with a partially complete box set somewhere. It could have been The Space Museum if they wanted a Hartnell story.

      The Power of Kroll is the really concerning one if it doesn’t come out.
