    I picked this up today and the cover looks even better in person

    The “previews” part of this mag are not really preview he mainly just talks about the writers and now and the some proper info on the episode and sadly there are no new series images

    It seems we will get a 12th doctor comic next month in the bumper issue witch includes 100 pages and a double sided poster with proper preveiws on the next 4 episodes

      I can’t wait for the double sided poster !! πŸ˜€

      Be great to have the new Doctor in poster form on my Bedroom wall.

      Maybe DWM should do a life size 12th Doctor poster, you know, like how Doctor Who Adventures did where you joined two poster together cos both halfs made up one big poster.

      I remember DWA did it with the Tardis’s Police Box exterior years ago with the 9th/10th Doctor version.

      Speaking of Daleks, some say that in The Day Of The Doctor, the real reason why the Dalek ships attacking Gallifrey were destroyed had nothing to do with transporting Gallifrey and the resulting crossfire, but was instesd because Capaldi directed that glare and those eyes at every Dalek ship simultaneously, causing them to instantly explode
      Those eyes are powerful weapons – there is no doubting that, or the power of Capaldi

      Did you know that Capaldi’s stare is so powerful; a Whovian looked into them and fell pregnant. He’s expecting triplets before Christmas.

      Cassius X – No no no no no, his giving the evil stare of Malcolm Tucker !!.

      With that look, he can make anyone wet themselves . . . . even the bad guys of the universe !!.

      Watch out Davros, he’ll make you wet your old pair of Doctor Who pant’s with the 4th Doctor printed on them.

      Oh yeah, didn’t you know, Davros loves the 4th Doctor so much he somehow manages to wear little boys pant’s with him on them πŸ˜€

    Just got my subscription copy.

    As I’m sure anybody who thought it through could guess, the preview is just Steven Moffat giving very vague information on the writers of each episode, one word per writer, has a go at himself for not being good since the first series of Press Gang then instructs fans if they really wanted to know everything about the episodes they should look it up on the internet (doesn’t take much to guess what that was referencing…)

    The amount of discussion about Capaldi’s ring is ridiculous in my opinion – it’s like people debating the meaning of his socks!
    If it has any significance besides being part of his costume (and Capaldi’s real wedding band) then we’ll see when the show airs, but I really doubt it has much significance at all

      of cause where going to have descusinons about the doctors ring where whovinas for goodness sake I remember when it was revealed the silence would be whering turtle necks loads of people started talking about that

      and anyway rings have had a past in doctor who

      the first and 7th doctor had a signet ring
      the masters ring

    • the astroanut of death

      July 22nd, 2014 - 8:03pm

      well we are doctor who fans and we spot and talk about everything

      and any ways rings have had a significant past in doctor who before

      the first and 7th doctor had a signet ring
      and the master had a ring

    • The Other

      July 24th, 2014 - 12:42am

      TBH the 1st and 7th Doctor’s rings were just part of their costume, as I expect this will be
      The Master’s ring was the only ring of true significance, and that was a one-off

      It really depends what age you are. DWA is much better than DWM for younger readers and DWM is better for the more matured readers. They’re both as good as each other when you think about it like that.

      DWM. Definitely. I think I had three ‘surprise gifts’ of plastic Sontaran miniatures before I gave up. My first issue of DWM was about Let’s Kill Hitler and even back when I was however young I was then I knew how much better DWM was.

      I like both of them, whoever claims that they don’t get one of the magazines because of the uninteresting features are using Rule 1 from the ‘Time Lord Secrets’ guide.

      I may have rants occasionally about how much DWA are bugging me because of their features, but like many- that may be because I am an older reader than the CHILDREN who DWA is intended for, but that doesn’t mean that I will stop buying it- just because its intended for children doesn’t mean older readers still can’t enjoy it.

    For those asking, the ring is Capaldi’s own wedding band – he never takes it off for any role, so they dressed it up to make it more Doctor-y

      I’m hoping it might be the ‘Signet Ring’ or something like it. They’re really going for a Hartnell feel with this series.

    • DOCTOR WHO ONE

      July 22nd, 2014 - 9:23am

      No, the 1st Doctor wore a different ring with a blue gem on it, this one is totally new, and if it is true that it’s actually Capaldi’s wedding ring, then I assume the bit on the front of it has been attached to his ring when playing the Doctor.

    • The Twelfth Doctor

      July 22nd, 2014 - 9:25am

      If the Doctor is now 2000 years old, I think he’d now be using an updated piece of technology. I mean, no one can go 10 years without a new phone, never mind 2000.
