Doctor Who Magazine Issue 441

You can keep up to date with Doctor Who magazine, see larger images of this and other covers on their Facebook Page Here Or you can now follow them on twitter.

Out Thursday 17 November 2011, priced £4.50.


Doctor Who Magazine 441 asks MARCUS WILSON to give us a peek under the Christmas tree to see what’s waiting to be unwrapped on Christmas Day, in an exclusive, in-depth interview with Doctor Who’s producer…
“It’s Christmas turned up to 12. It’s the most Christmassy Christmas Special we’ve ever seen. It’s a lovely, heart-warming, touching tale. It’s literally magical. It’s full of the usual concoction of things that spew out of Steven’s imagination. You’re going, ‘How can you have that and that in the same story?’ – and yet it works…”


DWM talks to CLOSING TIME director, STEVE HUGHES, who reveals the secrets of turning a department store into a haunted house, giving the Cybermats teeth, and defending the honour of Adric!

DWM goes behind the scenes of SERPENT CREST, AudioGO’s latest series of audio dramas featuring Tom Baker as the Fourth Doctor, and talks exclusively to DAVID TROUGHTON – who joins the cast to take on his father’s role as the Second Doctor!

Executive producer Steven Moffat writes about experiencing Christmas in the snow, his plans for Doctor Who in 2012, and the series’ 50th anniversary, in PRODUCTION NOTES!

DWM joins the crew of DOCTOR WHO CONFIDENTIAL and visits the pupils of Oakley Junior School to meet MATT SMITH and watch their winning entry for the ‘Script to Screen’ competition, DEATH IS THE ONLY ANSWER – featuring Albert Einstein and an Ood!

The results of the DWM merchandise poll for the most popular books, audios, and DVDs of 2010 are revealed at last – along with your views on DWM itself!

THE FACT OF FICTION is filled with fascinating facts and sinister Cybermen, as it focuses its attention on the much-loved Fifth Doctor adventure from 1982, EARTHSHOCK!

As the 50th anniversary of DOCTOR WHO approaches in 2013, how best to mark the occasion – celebrate the past with a multi-Doctor extravaganza or pave the way to the future with something new, original and completely unexpected? There’s only one way to decide… get debating duo TOBY HADOKE and JOHNNY CANDON to argue the toss in A BATTLE OF WITS!

The Doctor, Amy and Alan Turing face their ultimate encounter with the time-twisting Chiyoko in the thrilling climax to the Eleventh Doctor’s latest comic-strip adventure, THE CHILD OF TIME by JONATHAN MORRIS with art by MARTIN GERAGHTY!

It’s the season that saw the return of the Daleks, the Cybermen and the Sontarans… and the very first appearance of Davros! Discover more as DWM’s COUNTDOWN TO 50 looks back at 1974/5’s Series Twelve and the début of Tom Baker as the Fourth Doctor.

The Time Team shed a tear as they reach the end of the Ninth Doctor era with THE PARTING OF THE WAYS – what will Emma, Michael, Chris and Will make of the Time Lord’s encounter with the Dalek Emperor and the Bad Wolf?

PLUS! All the latest official news, TV and merchandise reviews, previews, competitions, a prize-winning crossword and much, much more!

Get into the festive mood with Doctor Who Magazine 441 – out now, priced £4.50.

      All we know so far is that it’s set in world war 2 and sees the doctor meet an evacuated family in the countryside. Amy and Rory will appear as well! Oh and it’s very christmassey…apparently and somethings up with the TARDIS

      That was the plan, but health and safety has stopped them with the fire plan (they were going to burn a canal boat).

    • Booboo Jr Jr ( Victini Forever ) ( Rory is cool ) ( The Last Centurion )

      November 14th, 2011 - 6:13pm

      umm, I don’t think he regnerates into his son, I think it’s an audio role. The child of time is awsome. Booboo could you please block anyone foolish enough to talk about the end of the comic strip please. I really want to go on this page without the ending being spoilt.

    • Scott

      November 14th, 2011 - 4:26pm

      maybe its an audio story

    • the astronaut of deth

    • Scott

      November 14th, 2011 - 4:51pm

      or maybe a scruffy wig and some layers of plastic shoved on his face

    • The Silence

      November 16th, 2011 - 3:41pm

      He’s playing the Second Doctor alongside the Fourth Doctor in the Tom Baker BBC audios.
