Issue 17 Contribution Details

Hello all, we'll be back next month with a brand-new Issue, kicking-off this somewhat barren year without much Doctor Who with our own brand of sunshine!

For Issue 17, we're generally on the lookout for reviews of the latest series - we're going to be reviewing the individual stories (seeing as there are so many two-parters) and we've got the following left to offer you:

Magicians Apprentice/The Witch’s Familiar

Under The Lake/Before The Flood

The Zygon Invasion/The Zygon Inversion

The Husbands of River Song


If you'd like to review a particular story, please e-mail us at fishcustardfanzine@googlemail.com asap so we can save you the slot. The stories are given on a first-come-first basis, so if your chosen story is taken by the time you e-mail, we'll offer you another if there are any left! Please keep your reviews from 500-1500 words – if you need more (or less!) please get in touch and we'll sort something out. Don't be afraid of being too critic…
