Regeneration for Doctor Who Adventures

Regeneration for Doctor Who Adventures

Doctor Who Adventures magazine is set to re-launch on Thursday 1 April, and will feature new Doctor Who branding throughout the title, along with exclusive content.

Inside the revamped issue, which goes on sale two days before the new Doctor’s first episode airs on BBC, is the first in a series of exclusive diary reports from actor Matt Smith. Issue 160 of the magazine sees Matt write about auditioning for the part of The Doctor and meeting The Doctor’s new companion, Amy Pond, played by Karen Gillan. In addition there is a sneak peek at The Doctor’s first episode, The Eleventh Hour, a star interview with Matt Smith, a free TARDIS clock and the chance to win your very own life-size Dalek.

Other new features include a brand new ‘Fast Fact’ page, which allows readers to cut out and collect fact files on all their favourite Doctor Who characters and a fresh new Doctor Who Adventures comic strip. There is also the introduction of a secret code; this runs throughout the magazine and allows readers to decode hidden Doctor Who facts and information. Favourites, such as puzzles, quizzes and posters also feature.

Moray Laing, Editor of Doctor Who Adventures says: “The new look Doctor Who Adventures magazine will prepare all young Doctor Who fans for the arrival of the Eleventh Doctor and his companion. Our new and exclusive content will excite young customers and refresh the newsstand visually. It is in the interest of independent retailers to prominently display the redesigned magazine as awareness of the brand will grow with the launch of the new series.”

The magazine will retain its weekly cover price of £2.10 and continue to give away Doctor Who free gifts, the first of which is a TARDIS clock.

    I’m subscribed to this, it was great at the start, but tbh it’s all gone downhill, the gifts are repetitive, the comic strips are UNBELIEVABLY Cheesy for a childrens magazine, and it is, in my opinion, become a poor example of a magazine, they didn’t even do anything special for the 100th Issue! All they did was put 100th Issue in a corner and that was it.
    Those are the reasons that i’m moving to DWM
