      They extended it to 90 to cover Series 9 and 10, and apparently there’s meant to be a wrap up volume covering Shada and other ‘does it count?’ stuff.

      Are they not going to carry on with doctor number 13?

      No because they will be finished working on issue 90 before Jodie’s first episode even starts. It’s the perfect place to stop. Wouldn’t surprise me if In the next few years they will end up reprinting and restarting the collection with the new logos updated info where required and new issues for Jodie’s episodes.

    My favourite story in this book is ‘Resurrection of the Daleks’. I like the ‘Caves of Androzani’, but think it’s overrated.

    Three of my favourite stories. Peter’s head looks to be at a slightly unnatural angle though…
