    I know they are the same magazine ever time they do multiple covers..but I always have to buy them all. Lol. Wish the publisher and of other magazines would do subscription coupons/vouchers like they do for newspapers. So you go to a shop and buy them. Keeps the shops in trade and open

    Now that this covers the rest of the new series, does the silly embargo stop on details being made available on the new issue in advance and the subscriber copy coming early. Not sure what that achieves anyway as I don’t know what information is actually being protected. The ‘Previews’ don’t actually tell you anything new anyway. I’m against spoilers (of course I am) but a little bit of promotion for the show might not be a bad idea (especially at present).

      I love the fact we have no spoilers. It’s a joy not to know every single thing that happens!

      There is a fine line between spoilers and promotion. If you take it to extremes, put nothing out on the new episodes until they are transmitted. IMO Russell T Davies knew how to promote Who, Chibnall doesn’t and is obsessed with secrecy due to his Broadchurch days. There is less need to be bullet proof with secrecy if the general public aren’t watching the programme like they used to. This isn’t the David Tennant ‘Golden Age’ anymore!

      There’s no such thing as a golden age. For everyone who liked him there are others who didn’t.

      There’s no such thing as a golden age. For everyone who liked him there are others who didn’t. For some people the McCoy years are the golden age, it just just depends on your perspective

      Personally Tennant wasn’t to my particular taste – you are missing the point (hence the inverted commas in my message). The general public liked him and for 2-3 years Who was massive. At the moment it isn’t as popular – fact.

    Was hoping for a Captain Jack cover. The covers are extremely plain lately.

      Remember that scene in Spyfall Part 2 when the Master emerges, all top hat and Victorian garb, with the TCE? It’s him in that outfit, right hand on the rim of his top hat looking cheekily at the camera with a dark background behind him.

      Yeah they’ve been keeping these issues back from subscribers til release date to maintain Secrecy around episode titles.

    at least there not blind bagged like some magazines do when they do various covers.Being a subscriber can also be a pain when they do more than one cover as you’ll rarely get the cover you want.I once got kylie instead of 10th doctor in tuxedo cover of dr who adventures i was so annoyed lol.

      No. Subscribers will get one at random.

      As subscribers get a textless version, I suspect that only one of them will be printer up like that.

    • Blue Box Jackie

      February 6th, 2020 - 10:53am

      Subscribers get a no text cover with The Master, a completely different photo to this one, top hat, dark background.
