    Got this last Saturday, got Cover 1.

    Did anyone else notice that the next issue is £5.99 even though its not a special issue with a poster or whatever – i hope that isnt the magazines normal price!

      I was charged £5.99 at Sainsburys for each issue as I got all 4. I noticed the cover price is £4.99 so the assistant refunded me the difference. This was either a Sainsburys error or a wrong bar code for a special issue.

      Thats interesting as when i went to sainsburys i had to wait a week to get it even though they had it in the back because of a pricing error

    I bought my copy today. And I got the cover I wanted…even though my shop only had two to choose from. I got the classic Tenth Planet and Moonbase Cybermen…My favourite versions of the Cybermen. The Cybermen were at their most effective in black and white.

    Now i’ve studied the Revenge cover. It’s the heads that are the problem. They are too small for the size of the body.

    • The Monitor

      September 23rd, 2016 - 8:02pm

      Let’s hope it is these covers, because for 25 years the Revenge Cyberman has been my favourite ( I know others who think the same) – the right balance between old and new design. The only ones that have come close are the Nightmare Cyberman and the Silver (for shiny-ness and deep voice)

  • Tim M

    I really like these covers. Cybermen were always great foes of the Doctor’s. What is everyone’s top 5 Cybermen stories. Mine are 1) The Tomb of the Cybermen. 2) Earthshock. 3) The Moonbase. 4) The Invasion 5) The Tenth Planet.

    • Demdike@CultLabs

      September 21st, 2016 - 7:09pm

      Earthshock, The Invasion, The Tenth Planet, Tomb of the Cybermen, The Next Doctor. (Sorry, but i love the Cybermen tramping about the snowy grave yard)

    • CG

      September 22nd, 2016 - 7:32am

      Oh my God! I completely forgot about the Next Doctor – love that too!

      Mine would be Earthshock, Tomb of the Cybermen, Attack, Revenge and probably Invasion.

    • The Monitor

      September 23rd, 2016 - 8:00pm

      Revenge, Nightmare in Silver, The Invasion, Earthshock, Silver

    • The Monitor

      September 23rd, 2016 - 8:04pm

      The Tomb of the Cybermen is a greater story than any I have listed above, but perhaps others show Cybermen at their best. Of course there is that classic scene of the emergence, unfortunately the voices are not clear to everyone.

    • Tim M

      October 1st, 2016 - 2:30pm

      I didn’t feel ‘The Invasion’ showed the Cybermen at their best, even though it is a superb story. Like ‘Tomb of the Cybermen’, ‘The Invasion’ has an equally classic scene of Cybermen stepping down from St Paul’s. But for a story that lasts 8 episodes, the Cybermen hardly feature prominently until the last episode.

    Cover 2 has just fallen through my letterbox.

    Revenge of the Cybermen.

    How are the covers sorted to Subscriber’s?

    • Anonymous

      September 20th, 2016 - 3:12pm

      they give you cover 1

    • Gareth Pugh

      September 21st, 2016 - 9:25am

      When they’ve done multi-covers in the past few years, my mate and I (we both subscribe) always get different ones. I’m not so sure they have a definite policy of only sending subscribers design #1?

    • When The Doctor Was Me

      September 21st, 2016 - 10:16am

      I never get cover 1 as a subscriber. I got the Tennant cover for issue 485 and the the angels take manhatten cover for issue 452.

    • When The Doctor Was Me

      September 21st, 2016 - 11:06am

      In fact mine has just come in the post and i got cover 4. Which is great as its the one i wanted!

    • The Contessa

      September 21st, 2016 - 5:01pm

      They must be random. I subscribe and have received cover 3. Would have preferred cover 2 though!

    • DoctorFan

      September 21st, 2016 - 8:27pm

      I always get cover one wether I like it or not

  • Jay Glover

    Cover Two Looks the best

  • Matthew

    September 20th, 2016 - 4:48am

    I’m still only buying one copy.
    I hope I get cover three but as a subscriber I’ll probably end up with cover four.

  • The Legend Doctor

    Wait what? I thought the cybermen first appeared in 1963? like The Daleks?

    • CharlieMars

      September 23rd, 2016 - 10:48am

      What made you think that?
      Doctor Who started 23rd November 1963, and was on a weekly basis. By January 1964 Doctor Who was only partly into it’s second story, ‘The Daleks’.
      Also, I thought everyone knew the Cybermen first appeared in Hartnell’s final story, he didn’t play the Doctor for less than 2 months!

    • The Legend Doctor

      September 23rd, 2016 - 8:14pm

      Oops silly me

  • Jordan Scott

    September 19th, 2016 - 11:52pm

    A cover to celebrate The Power of the Daleks being animated and it’s 50th anniversary would be nice!

    • Doctor Who Archive

      September 20th, 2016 - 4:41am

      They could have two covers for the Power of the Daleks and two for the Cybermen.

    • Stike

      September 20th, 2016 - 7:12am

      I suspect November’s issue will have a power of the daleks cover


      September 20th, 2016 - 5:53pm

      I hope thy do covers for 10 years since Torchwood in October and the Sarah Jane Adventures in January

    • Gareth Pugh

      September 20th, 2016 - 10:52pm

      I think that’s what we might be getting. If you look at the ‘Coming Soon’ section of the last issue if DWM, issue 506 (the one out in November) is at the higher price of £5.99 again. When they’ve charged that for a couple of issues recently, they’ve included a poster and some art cards. I’m wondering if they might be doing something like that using some of the animation from Power as a bit of a celebration of the release?

    • Gareth Pugh

      September 20th, 2016 - 10:53pm

      Sorry my reply there was to Stike’s post!

    • Gareth Pugh

      September 20th, 2016 - 10:56pm

      Of course, on the other hand, that could just be an increase in the normal price. Editor Tom Spilsbury has warned on the Gallifrey Base forum a few weeks back that Panini’s head office in Italy have instructed them to increase prices shortly and that as a result it won’t be £4.99 for much longer. We’ll see soon.

    • Gareth Pugh

      September 20th, 2016 - 11:00pm

      DoctorWhoFan1, I don’t know but I think they might be inclined to give the October release’s cover over to Class, given that it’s launching then. But a TW10 article inside would be a good idea…

    • DoctorFan

      September 21st, 2016 - 8:29pm

      I got my Copy today and yes indeed issue 504 is for the power of the daleks animation

      £20 on the same thing? Ridiculous

    • booboo

      September 21st, 2016 - 7:06pm

      people spend a lot more on the “same thing” just because its different

  • Bryan

    September 19th, 2016 - 9:48pm

    Blimey, I didnt realise these were CGI , i assumed they were models like using the Character Options figures in dioramas.

    Might look better printed up. fingers Xd

    I do hope this isnt just a retread of the Cyberman Essential edition, although I realise there has to be some cross pollination, due to DWM/Panini and not much new to say that hasnt been said before. Hopefully The Wheel in space DVD gets announced as the next Animation fingers XXd 🙂

  • Prof Horner

    September 19th, 2016 - 9:28pm

    I have always loved the Invasion cybermen and so I think this is the best cover. No doubt we will be told all about the exciting news about The power of the daleks . I can not wait !

  • Anonymous

    September 19th, 2016 - 8:00pm

    2nd cover is my favourite but I’m a subscriber so I’ll get cover 1

  • WouldYouLikeAJellyBaby?

    September 19th, 2016 - 7:12pm

    These look really tacky and cheap in my opinion. Also am I the only one who thinks that the Cybemen on each cover ressemble their Eaglemoss Figurine Collection counterparts?

      I suspect the same person did the renders.

      Wouldn’t be surprised if the renders where done by themindrobber

    • Tom Baker Plush

      September 19th, 2016 - 9:36pm

      Mind Robber’s renders are normally far superior to this. I expect these were done by someone else

    • Anonymous

      September 20th, 2016 - 3:02pm

      This is themindrobber’s work, it’s been posted on their Facebook. Certainly not up to the usual stand though I think.

    • WouldYouLikeAJellyBaby?

      September 20th, 2016 - 10:32pm

      Despitw having said that the cover art doesn’t look very good, I actually really like the cover art with The Tenth Planet and The Moonbase designs on the front. I may pick that up.

  • The Super Whovian

    September 19th, 2016 - 6:22pm

    So is anyone else celebrating their anniversary as well as DWM and Titan? Are Big Finish doing anything? Any collectables apart from the Harrop 10th planet cybermen?

    • whonose1963

      September 19th, 2016 - 7:28pm

      I believe the box set compiling the Cyberman series was Big Finish’s tribute, but that was released a while ago. I’m not aware of any other commemoration, but I do hope for one.

  • Demdike@CultLabs

    September 19th, 2016 - 5:12pm

    The worst covers DWM has had in ages. They look sort of cartoon like rather than metallic. When you consider all the great Dalek ones they produced in recent years it’s a poor showing.

    Hopefully there might be a different exclusive subscribers cover.

  • Asher H

    September 19th, 2016 - 5:12pm

    One of the first two for me. Although I do love the most recent ones

  • Tom Baker Plush

    September 19th, 2016 - 4:31pm

    The 3D renders look really dodgy imo. None of the proportions look right which makes them seem a bit chubby

  • Omega63

    Got to be the first one for me if I had to choose! 😀

      So many refurbs to them, you’d have thought they’d have got round that by now.
