    Bought this today in Sainsbury’s. Looks good.

    Pity Panini haven’t sent my subscriber copy of the mag yet.

      Got mine today as part of my subscription but no monthly issue yet so perhaps there’s a delay on it being a subscriber cover issue ?.

    Really looking forward to this one! Steven Moffatt interviews are always fun to read. Shame there isn’t a Russell T Davies interview too, but sure he will be one of the writers featured. Overall this special sounds really good!!

      Yea I think it is, it’s a bit blurry but at the top I’m sure it says Cold War
