    Still nothing in the Portsmouth area. Even the longest delays haven’t been this long in the past. Really disappointing.

    Still just the old issue in Exeter. There must be some kind of distribution problem. Very disappointing tbh.
    I’m holding on to all the issues I buy now as it seems they are rare.

      Probably, but we can live in hope for something interesting we don’t have…

      it would be nice to have the years tapes from the early 1990s on dvd but i don t think that will happen

      The recent remake of mission to the unknown would be cool and very unlikely

      I think it will be either one of the following:

      – Something to do with the new animation that they’ll be announcing at London Comic Con/ The Faceless Ones

      – Something to do with Doctor Who Magazine (i.e. interviews with people about the 40th birthday etc)

    None in the shops that I can find. Second time in a row now, and really disappointing. Have been collecting for 30 years and not known a run of late arrivals. I know I could subscribe but I like the ritual of picking it up in the shops after work on the day of release. Does anyone know what’s going on with it?
