    For all those asking there’s no comic strip. There also doesn’t look like there’s one next issue either.

    There might be some original fiction next issue though. I’m not sure. In the ‘Next Issue’ trail it says “Black Powder – A new Adventure by Joy Wilkinson”

    Whether that’s a new comic strip she’s written or a new book release, or simply a story she’s written for the magazine…Who knows?

      Oh, right. I’ve just read Marcus’ editorial.

      Black Powder is a new piece of thirteenth Doctor fiction written especially for the magazine. Part one is in the next issue.

      Finally. The page count returns to 84 pages next issue too. It’s currently 76.

      Is the price going to go up as I think due to COVID, It’s costing more to print.

      I’m not surprised. If you paddled in the sea at Bkackpool in the 70s, anything could float by…

    Can Big Finish do a story based on this cover?

      Why not… they’ve done everything else…

      Anonymous LOL…..I thought it was only me that thinks they are over egging the canon too far now. All those stories in the gap between planet of fire and caves of andzroanzi are hard to take credibly.

      You are not alone in that dale. I find it hard to credit the peri stories. After what must now be decades of travel she doesn’t age and happens to put the same outfit on for caves she was wearing hundreds of stories ago! Sometimes less really is more.

    R.I.P. Jackie Lane. 🙁

    worth getting this time for the exhibitions feature alone but i will buy for the tributes to Damaris and Jackie. So nice to see the third doctor treating a sontaran and sea devil to a day trip to blackpool. Although i couldn,t imagine a sea devil emerging from the irish sea especially with all the effluent that was pumped into the sea back in the 70s. they couldn,t get out quick enough.

      They seem to be enjoying it though ergon.

      I think the Sontaran will regret not rolling it’s trousers up though, he’ll have very wet socks under there!

      So that’s what gave Blackpool its ‘bouquet’!!

      Should be a good issue, if a little poignant with the two tributes.

      Did you download John Collier’s free e-book on the original Blackpool exhibition? Almost (but not quite) the last word on the subject. A sequel coming is this August to which I’ve contributed a bit!

      I have still got it backed up on my downloads doug. I look forward to the follow up.

    Even has the correct outfit for Jon.
