    If The Runaway Bride isn’t at least in the bottom five of the poll then there is truly no justice in the world.

      Shame they fjnt do a subscription like newspapers where you pay for the year and get coupons/vouchers sent to you to use in shops. Would keep more shops in business, dwm would get a guaranteed customer for the year (or 2 etc), plus shops would maybe get extra sales whilst on their, plus more footfall on the high streets. Even though its a issue cheaper per year I still go to my local whs.

    What’s with that bbc logo placement…I assume a mistake?

      No David and Catherine now require their own BBC blocks on every image. It guarantees David will return one day as the Eighteenth Doctor.

      (Relax, I’m joking)

      Aside from that it’s a very nice cover. I just hope the bbc logo isn’t placed there on the subscriber cover.
