In the first issue we join Christopher Eccleston’s Ninth Doctor as he meets Rose Tyler in the opening episode of the new series, ‘Rose’ and see how she reacts when he takes her to ‘The End of the World’. Subsequent issues then follow the series through in broadcast order as the Doctor and his companions travel the universe, facing monsters such as the Daleks, Slitheen and Cybermen, and villains such as the Editor and Cassandra, the last ever human. The series will include the very latest episodes, right up to ‘The Next Doctor’. Re-live the adventure! But Doctor Who DVD Files isn’t just about the DVDs.

“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. You get 24 pages every fortnight packed with insider information and specially-commissioned artwork produced by members of the Doctor Who art department. Because of the way it builds up you’ll soon have hundreds of pages of invaluable information,” says GE project manager Ben Robinson. The magazine features never-seen-before photography, exclusive behind-the scenes interviews, episode guides, profiles of monsters, heroes and villains, new artwork showing classic moments from the show’s history and specially created diagrams and cutaways produced by members the Doctor Who art department.
