      I went on the 13th, it was a great experience with wonder panels, a wonderful drama school of Daleks, Big Finish and more as well as some awesome costumes and sets to see. Also met Michelle Gomez which was incredibly exciting!

    I persnerly prefer the normal version to this is Clara leaving in episode 10 or in the finale

    • Star Lord

      November 13th, 2015 - 2:29pm

      Pretty sure its the finale.

    Its probably just me, but it looks like Clara”s head has been photoshopped on to the body

      No, it may sound strange but I recognize her hand and when you see the whole body you can see her legs and heeled pimsolls.

    What’s acutally different about this one? Is it a feature on the inside?

    • cyberdoctor42

      November 12th, 2015 - 9:46pm

      The cover is slightly different.

    • cyberdoctor42

      November 12th, 2015 - 9:53pm

      Anything else and everyone would complain because if there’s two things us British people love it’s doctor who and complaining.

    How’s this cover different?

      November 12th, 2015 - 4:13pm

      It doesn’t have all the other pictures and writing on it so it looks nicer

    • booboo

      November 12th, 2015 - 4:21pm

      and the Doctor is in it!

    • cyberdoctor42

      November 12th, 2015 - 9:47pm

      Also Clara is far closer to the camera.

      same I’m there Sunday too I’m hoping they spread them out over the 3 days

      survey they will find a way

      I had Friday tickets buy changed them for Sunday so I could meet jenna lol

    • Wally

      November 12th, 2015 - 4:45pm

      It would be unfair to not spread them out across all 3 days

    • cyberdoctor42

      It’s a £5 convention exclusive sold at a convention based entirely around the brand the magazine is based on. It will sell really quickly, I’m surprised they only have 2000. Sadly I live in Northern Ireland so i can’t go but at least I met Colin Baker at Belfast comic-con and got DWM #489 signed.
