    Ummm…Where is there an item on Doctor Who Magazine 506? It’s out very soon and some subscribers probably have their copy already. So why isn’t it on the Doctor Who Site yet? It looks like a great issue, celebrating the legendary Patrick Troughton. The best Doctor to grace our screens.

    Got this a few weeks back, a good issue but not really worth the price increase.

    Oh great – the next issue is £5.99 is there going to be a price increase

      I’m guessing there will be a Poster or Art Cards?

      unusual as it didn’t say in the ‘next time’ section of this mag that there was going to be art cards or a poster

    I for one am very happy to see Captain Jack on the front page. Torchwood is a brilliant show, and I for one can’t wait to see it back, so they need to bring it back! Gwen was a bloody brilliant character, if not a series then we need a permenant ending for it! It’s the cover for a reason… it’s been 10 years since torchwood began!

    I cant believe they didn’t go with a Power cover or even Class. I’m so bored of John `the ego` trying to revive Torchwood, just let it go! With the exception of Children of The Earth it was a truly terrible show and doesn’t warrant bringing back.John needs move on and find a new role.

      Series 1 and 2 were good. 4 I admit was terrible. But I do agree the class cover should have been this week. Power will be next month.

      Next month will be the Christmas Special surely?

      Never liked torchwood, like SJA, it’s had its time. I agree!

      The problem with having a cover related to the Power of the Daleks is it would have to be an cartoon image dalek on the cover, which wouldn’t really sell copies to adults or make it that eye-catching
      The problem with having Class on the cover is, its a new property so nobody really knows yet how well having them on the cover will make it sell
      The reason they went with John on the cover is because he’s very recognisable to us whovians, he plays a beloved character in dr who, so having him on the front will help sell issues

      Totally disagree with the comments from Josh B. To say a cartoon image prevents people from buying a mag is ridiculous, DWM have used art / cartoon covers before. The Doctor is in the first episode of Class so it makes even more sense to have it on the front cover. It makes no sense at all to have a dead spin off show on the front cover just because its main lead cant let it go. Captain Jack is not beloved by all, many fans cant stand him. DWM have made a stupid choice.

    Why is it £5.99? Is that the normal price now?

    • 100,000BC

      October 14th, 2016 - 3:24pm

      Only when there are extra pages or a poster/supplement. It might be extra pages for Class…?

    • Weeping Angel

      October 16th, 2016 - 2:03pm

      Im not sure if there is extra pages as i hav not got it yet

    Holy crap, it’s the Risen Mitten (resurrection glove) from the first season. If I remember right, they never found the second one. I know there was two resurrections but I can’t remember if it was with the same glove both times. Should probably go back and marathon it all from the start.


      October 14th, 2016 - 12:28am

      They destroyed the first one ( Tosh shot it) in They Keep Killing Suzie S1 Ep8 to save Gwen and kill Suzie and then Jack found the second one in a church full of weevils to bring Owen back to life in Dead Man Walking S2 Ep7 after he was shot in Reset S2 Ep6.

      The second Gauntlet was also destroyed by Owen in Dead Man Walking in order to save Martha

      So unless there are more (there are those who say it’s the same as Rassilon’s glove by there is not “in-universe” proof of this) then all the Ressurection Gaunlets have been destroyed

      Ahhhh I remember now that you’ve told me. Those were both great episodes too! Thanks for reminding me! I’m gonna do a re-watch just to keep things fresh. That way I can start listening to the Big Finish stories 🙂

    that image of Capaldi in the top corner, when i first looked i thought it was Jon Pertwee!

      It’s funny that you say that because I’ve been thinking in the trailers and promos that Ms. Quill, who’s pictured with him, looks a lot like Liz Shaw! Coincidence, or something more?

    I was right! It is a torchwood cover!!!

    I hope John Barrowman can some how bring back Torchwood

      but he’s getting a bit old. wonder how they’d do it

    • The Super Whovian

      October 13th, 2016 - 7:38pm

      Perhaps Jack could have been aged by something causing him to be thousands of years older but he only looks slightly older

    • The Monitor

      October 13th, 2016 - 7:54pm

      Let’s not forget that Big Finish have done 2 series of Torchwood now and it is brilliant. Given a choice of more Torchwood Miracle Day style television or Broken/Made You Look style audio, the latter is far superior and I would far rather have the audio.

    is anyone else thinking Stargate SG1 with that thing on his hand? Anubis style…

      Jaffa Kree! Haha I see where you’re coming from, that would make the glove slightly more terrifying.

    Was hoping for a Power of the Daleks cover, oh well.

    • 100,000BC

      October 13th, 2016 - 5:25pm

      I think that might be next month’s cover – by that point, the DVD won’t have been released yet and it will only have been on BBC store for 2 weeks so the opportunity is probably better there.

    • Jordan Scott

      October 13th, 2016 - 7:03pm

      Yes you’re right, I hope it is! 🙂

      Is then I guess we have a rough idea of what we’ll be getting over the next few months. W’ell most likely have November – POTD, December – Christmas preview and January – review of it

      October 14th, 2016 - 12:59pm

      I Think Class will have November’s Cover unfortunately! due to it being side tracked this month with Torchwood. I don’t think it will get a cover until January time.

      November – Class Cover
      December – Doctor Who XMAS
