      I haven’t had Issue 13 either, but they are sending me Issues 13 – 18 all at once after I e-mailed them about it. If you want it to happen with your magazines then I suggest e-mailing them on a message simalar to this:

      (Will do it in a different post as I can’t fit it all in one)


      December 23rd, 2011 - 4:09pm

      Dear Doctor Who Monster Invasion,

      I wanted to ask whether something would be possible. My friends who collect the magazine are expecting to recieve Issues 17 and 18 within the next week, I haven’t even recieved Issue 13. Are you able to send all the Issues I haven’t yet recieved at once so that I could catch up with them?

      Hope your able to help resolve the problem,

      From ——— .


      December 23rd, 2011 - 4:10pm

      Try this, it worked with me, and might very well work with you. Of course, you won’t get a reply till after Christmas now but at least you’ll be able to catch up!

      My dad was going to phone them but when you ask him to do something it takes a couple of months till he does it

      Admiral Icktheus, no I have not recievd my subscription. I think that they have either forgotten about my account or there is a problem with it.

    For those who have been hoping that the third set will be out with the 20th issue I’m afraid to tell you it won’t be. This was a reply to an email I had.

    ‘The third and final set will go on sale with issue 30 in the summer next year.
    Best wishes,


      December 22nd, 2011 - 5:56pm

      I asked someone else about that they said ‘There are no plans at the moment to do a third set, but we will let you know if there is.’

    • Admiral Icktheus

      They’re either lying to us to keep it secret or making us suffer!!

    • cjayp33

      December 22nd, 2011 - 6:56pm

      Will be a rubbish collection if there are only three sets (BIT managed 4) and besides there are still laods of classic and new who cards that can be made and if the last set is still only 180 cards that wll not be enough (if they keep doing diff versions of the same thing e.g amy pond, river song)

      I highly suspect it will contain like 300+ cards, because vit has to stretch 22 issues.

      December 22nd, 2011 - 9:53pm

      I’m annoyed that the third set will be the final set. I’m annoyed because it will be the last set and no more cards. I’m really happy that they will be released with issue 30 because I think set 1 and Extreme set were released to close together.

    I have this now, although, you’d think Nephew would win in 18, as he’s rarer.

    For those who are interested in purchasing single cards from the website I have received this email:

    ‘Single set one cards will be sold on our website from early/mid-January but I’m afraid the Infinite will not be on sale as very few were actually printed.

    Best wishes,

    • MasterKasterborous

      December 22nd, 2011 - 10:38pm

      Thanks for mentioning that. This means I can complete Set 1 bar the infinite. I know the chances are slim but does anyone have an infinite going on here because I don’t want to pay ridiculous sums of money for a piece of card but I want to complete Set 1!!!


      December 23rd, 2011 - 8:35am

      Cool, I’ll be able to complete the whole of Set 1 now, I was lucky enough to find the Infinite in a packet! No hope with the Second Infinite yet though 🙁 .

    • cjayp33

      December 23rd, 2011 - 12:45pm

    I have a feeling that issue 19 may have an image from a card in set three. I may be wrong but in issue 9 they had a picture of Madame Kovarian and issue 19 is going to have a section about the eye-drive. So there might be a picture of an eye-drive card.

    • Admiral Icktheus

      December 22nd, 2011 - 6:43am

      Especially if they keep to that certain pattern of 1=1st set and 2=2nd set.

    • Admiral Icktheus

      December 22nd, 2011 - 6:44am

      Sorry was meant to write issue 1=1st set and 11=2nd set.
