    Apparently the next issue is £9.99 and includes a new and exclusive Target book…

    I wonder what that could be…

    (I think subscribers will get this issue incidentally as if it would be a deluxe edition, there would be a £5.99 option AND a £9.99 option. The image on the back only says that the next issue will be £9.99 and there will not be a normal version. Hallelujah for not having to hunt down DWM issues during a pandemic…)

      Yes, the book is intriguing as it’s says “exclusive”…. Not like the last time back in 2007(?) when you got a random book

    I asked Lee Binding on his facebook page and he provided DWM with the pdf of his original design.

    Says their graphic designer added the Master in for the cover.

    the ergon and Rob W – you’re both wrong – it’s going to be Susan Calman. She was designing her Tweed Doctor Who Outfit when she was on Harris in a recent episode of Secret Scotland 🙂

      This seems like proof.

    Wish they’d stop doing those world cup of features.Makes me think of football which I’m not into 1 little bit

      Page filler.

      It’s just a bit of fun.

    This looks Fab as ever, but it is becoming very annoying, how little there is on the Current Doctor, especially if the Rumours are true (I hope not, I have enjoyed Whitakers performances and stories far more by and larhe than Capaldi)

    Never thought, the Lovely Olly Alexander would be in DWM. RTD doing for the Daleks as he did for Vince and K9 in queer as folk.. Brilliant.

    Who is Gordon, and where are they on the cover ?

    • booboo

      January 4th, 2021 - 1:20pm

      Gordon is a very regular poster in the DVD sections on this site who uses The Master Image, its a nod to him.

      Agree Brian I hope she stays but we’ll see. Loved her stuff so far. I just hope it’s another female doctor after Jodie.

    • Gordon

      January 4th, 2021 - 2:38pm

      That would be me. I love cover for this.

    • the ergon

      January 4th, 2021 - 2:45pm

      What? You mean you haven,t heard? Its Floella Benjamin as doctor 14. Jo Martin is understandably miffed.

      I had my money on rarely on TV Oti Mabuse. Happy New Year folks!

    50 years of trying to take over the universe, sometimes not even in his own body once as an emaciated corpse…that’s commitment.

  • Coleman

    January 4th, 2021 - 12:52pm

    Ooh look,
    Gordon’s on the front cover.

  • Haza14

    January 4th, 2021 - 11:28am

    Oooh this is like the reverse of the Season 8 box set cover. Nice idea!!

    • daz

      January 4th, 2021 - 1:35pm

      Wonder if Lee Binding did it?

    • Haza14

      January 4th, 2021 - 6:04pm

      I don’t know for sure, but I guess he must have done!
