    Picked up my copy this morning in deepest Essex. I like the freebies but the cardboard packaging leaves something to be desired. Most of the freebies were runied Poster was shredded, master comic creased and torn. Went to all the trouble of doing a deluxe issue just to crush the goodies

      My Master comic was also creased at the top, but the rest were alright. I agree the packaging is a step down, but on the plus side, at least it’s still cardboard and not a plastic bag!

    Find it strange they have a Master supplement and a bit article about the Masters past disguises yet nothing regarding the new incarnation of the Master they’ve introduced in the new series.

      The episodes with him in have literally just been on. They probably didn’t what to spoil the episodes in case the info from the mag was leaked.

      That’s disappointing. I’ve now got to decide if it’s worth getting just for track 17.

    Distribution problems with the deluxe edition in Whsmith Glasgow Argyle Street and probably most of Scotland which forced me to buy regular issue but the guy that served me said that there’s a one shot magazine coming at the end of January.

      Still can’t find the Yearbook…don’t want to be over dramatic but I think DWM is gonna struggle to survive if they can’t sort these distribution problems out!

      When I bought it recently from Smiths the cashier said, without prompting, that it was their highest selling magazine. So I imagine they will be doing their best to make sure people can buy it.

    Tempting for the CD, I love classic who music! Also has Jodie’s top become a bit more jumper than T-Shirt here it looks much thicker than usual.
