    Ordered this awhile back and according to my account it was posted around the same time as issue 2 but I still haven’t received it. Hope it hasn’t gone AWOL.
    I’ve just messaged the sellers and am waiting for a reply.

      Correction, just opened the package, there’s only Vol 2 enclosed.
      Just checked out the pages with the collection belonging to Chris.
      Very nice pieces, theres alot of foreign language books on their. Love the Dapol two handed Davros in mint packaging as well as the boxset with the five sided TARDIS console and green K9 included
      Also never seen the VHS video tape with the bonus Dalek included.
      The magazine’s not as glossy as normal Dr Who magazine’s but it’s full of colour photos and plenty to read, looks great.

      Yes it’s blue, I think he said it was a Boots UK exclusive.
      Booboo will will put Console on the end of five sided TARDIS.

      To be fair Booboo I never frequented Boots very often.
      That’s probably why I never saw the Five Doctors tape with Dalek..

      Just had a quick look on eBay for the Five Doctors VHS tape with Dalek, at the moment their isn’t any for sale. (must be quite rare).
      How much would these sell for now Booboo?

      all down to condition and how many people are after it at the time, around the £200 mark for a good condition one

    I,d never heard of the other 16 volumes and not sure about jumping on board this late but there are some excellent features in this. I,ve given up on DWM.

      I didn’t know about the other 16 volumes either Ergon. But when I went on the eBay link to buy them I noticed alot of the other volumes for sale. Some of the older covers look abit dated but these newer editions look great.(very eye-catching).

      i don,t suppose it matters that much, its just the completionist in me and a touch of OCD that stops me initially but the in depth interviews and original content in these make them very tempting.

      What I mean is, it is available in supermarkets and shops like WHsmith?

      Hi Syd. No, Tardis is the magazine of the Doctor Who Appreciation Society – like a fan club magazine rather than a mass-market publication. This one had sold out on eBay when I looked this afternoon but maybe they’ll make more available?
