Image
We’re back for more! After spending 4 years doing nothing but eating biscuits (cookies, for our North American friends), we’re back for our 2nd issue in 3 months!
September will see us release Issue 19 – and we need contributors!
Whilst we will always accept ANYTHING that is vaguely related to Doctor Who (you just have to read the other 18 to see that) for this particular issue we’re especially looking for: Reviews of Series 10 (Peter Capaldi’s last one) – We’re looking for your thoughts on the series; this can be you going through the episodes, your thoughts on the series as a whole, your favourite moments, your worst moments…whatever you like.

The following items are available from our shop now: Issue 2 (two copies left).A 16-page promotional issue that was originally handed out at London Film and Comic Con in 2011 (thirteen copies left).Pin badge sets (three sets left). Once they’re gone, they’re gone – and please only order one item, so there’s more to go around.Thanks.

Win A Historical Fanzine!

Also, we are launching a competition to win the original proof copy of Issue 1 – aside from being the first copy ever printed, it’s nothing special. We’ve no idea why anyone would want it tbh – the covers …

With the world possibly coming to the end, we’d thought it the perfect time to make a dramatic return
to ensure we don't go out on an odd number.

Providing Doctor Who fans with something to read on the toilet since 2010, we are delighted to be back and are ready to tackle the news, views and issues currently surrounding the show. Oh dear.
