    Any idea of where these test areas are? Cause I will be really disappointed if the magazine isn’t released in the West Midlands…

      Thanks booboo, though it’s an aweful long time to wait, it’ll be worth it. Any idea how many issues it may run for, cause the same publisher ran a magazine to coincide with the lord of the rings trilogy and it ran past 180 issues?

      I was thinking if these were released on a smaller scale then the series might do better as they could become highly sought after collectables…

      no idea, probably 52 but if its popular who knows, just have to watch that extra £1 an issue for those Daleks as it doesn’t specify – DVD files seem to be going on and on.

      And it will probablly go on longer now. As of issue 112 it appears they have gotten their licence expanded as they have articles on both The Asylum and Kahler-Jex according to the next issue bit of issue 111.

      Before they were only able to cover up The Wedding of River Song which was stopping them from bringing out the 2011 episodes but no doubt they’ll be planning on releasing them at some point now.
