Doctor Who Insider issue 1

In this first issue, there’s an exclusive interview with Eleventh Doctor, Matt Smith, plus Doctor Who production designer, Michael Pickwoad reveals how he built an entire new world for the holiday special.

PLUS, the issue also includes these great features and previews…

The Fifth Doctor returns in a new trilogy of audio dramas, and in the first story he fights his old enemies, the Sontarans. We go behind-the-scenes to talk to the producers and writers of these brand new adventures and find out what’s in store for the Doctor and his companions.

Jacqueline Pearce, best known as Servalan in Blake’s 7, recalls playing an alien Androgum opposite Doctors Two and Six – Patrick Troughton and Colin Baker, in 1985’s The Two Doctors.

We take a look at the memorable moment from Pyramids of Mars where the Fourth Doctor shows his companion Sarah what the Earth might look like if the evil Sutekh escapes his imprisonment.

Who’s who and what’s what in the Doctor Who holiday special, A Christmas Carol.

Caught in the Time Scoop this issue are the Sontarans. We present a pictorial guide to the many appearances of the clone warriors over the years.

Previews of the latest Doctor Who merchandise, including Kinda & Snakedance on DVD featuring mini interviews with Janet Fielding and Marc Platt; new talking books, The Jade Pyramid and The Gemini Contagion from AudioGO; author James Goss reveals his inspiration for his new novel, Dead of Winter; and we take a look at the latest action figure sets from Underground Toys.

A fantastic selection of pictures of fans posing with some well known Doctor Who celebrities, including Matt Smith, Karen Gillan and Elisabeth Sladen. Plus photos of some fantastic Doctor Who inspired fan creations.

PLUS! The latest official news on the new series, and a giant, double-sided poster of the Eleventh Doctor and A Christmas Carol.

Don’t miss the first issue of DOCTOR WHO INSIDER!

    I saw this at a British shop in the high street today. I’m only going to get the first issue though because my mother does not like the shop. They say it’s a rip-off. Any way it’s good to see it at a shop in Canetrbury.
