    Great content this issue but very odd they’ve returned to A4 size. Cheaper I guess!

    Unpublished Barry letts interview! Worth it for that. After he died and the DVDs came out with the interviews he crammed in I always felt very sad, a lovely man much missed.

    Even if this Issue is mainly to publicise the Bluray set, anything that devotes a full issue to the great Jon Pertwee and the people who knew him best would always gauge my interest more. Some decent features including Sean Pertwee as well, this month, so will pick up a copy.
