Issue 18 Contribution Details - Doctor Who fan writers wanted!

Celebrating 6-and-a-half years as perhaps the Whoniverse’s most silliest fanzine, Fish Fingers and Custard is back for 2017 and we’re seeking Doctor Who fan writers to help us create our latest issue!

With Doctor Who back in the Spring (finally!) and a Christmas episode and a spin-off series to digest, not to mention this being Steven Moffat’s last series as head writer, we’re very much looking forward to getting stuck into presenting our own thoughts/hopes/fears for the episodes to come. Are you?

Contribute to Issue 18!

What’ve you been doing in the downtime since Doctor Who has been off the air? Watching old episodes? Maybe you’ve discovered the classic series or the many spin-off books and audios? Been to any conventions/events? Maybe you’ve been watching something else entirely – let us know what you’ve been up too!

For Issue 18, we’re seeking reviews/views on the following;
  • The Return of Doctor Mysterio – Super? Or not?
  • Class – the BBC Three spin-off series – what did you think?
  • Doctor Who series 10 – what you’re looking forward to, what not you’re looking forward to
  • Steven Moffat – will you miss him when he’s gone? Will you throw a party?
  • Anything else? We accept ANYTHING as long as it’s vaguely related to Doctor Who! Please see any of our previous issues for more information.
We don’t have a specific word count for any pieces we receive – we feel that writing is always at its best when the writer writes as much as they feel like. Then again, there may be issues if you send in a 40,000-word essay on, for example, ‘Why Superheroes shouldn’t be in Doctor Who’! Generally, we get articles of around 500-1,500 words – if you feel like you can do more, get in touch and we will be able to arrange something.

It isn’t just written essays that we’re after – we are also on the lookout for any art, poems, spoofs...basically anything that can read! Again, send us an e-mail with your ideas.
If you’ve contributed before, or are completely new to this thing we call fanzining then we’d love to hear from you!

Want to join our band of Doctor Who fan writers? Get in touch!

Please send your contributions or any enquiries to and we’ll get back to you. The deadline for contributions for Issue 18 is after Sunday 26th February – with the hope that the Issue will be out on the virtual streets by the start of Doctor Who series 10! (Series 10! Where has the time gone?)

Cheers all, hope you Doctor Who fan writers are having a great start to the New Year!
