The Internet Explodes
As most of you are no doubt aware, Doctor Who celebrates its 50th anniversary with a 75 minute special episode on Saturday 23rd November. If that hasn't had people speculating enough the BBC have today released a seven minute prequel to that episode! You can find it here on the BBC's You Tube page:
Yes - the Internet is buzzing with discussion about it already. If you're a fan of the series it's a vital part of the story (and of Doctor Who history in general) that's not to be missed!
Also out today is Doctor Who Magazine No.467. It's a special bumper edition with 116 pages and comes in a card envelope (shown above) together with 12 Anniversary Art Cards showing 12 Doctors plus a retro-styled 16 page mini mag showing how Doctor Who Magazine might have looked if it had been around in 1964. (The design isn't quite sixties enough but it's close - and it's a great bit of fun.)
As this is a comics blog I can't let the 12 page comic strip in the latest DWM go unmentioned. It's a truly exceptional complete story written by Scott Gray with artwork by the hugely talented David Roach and colours by James Offredi. One of the best stories to have appeared in a British comic this year.
Such a whopping amount of goodness comes with a higher price and this issue is £7.99 - but well worth it. Available from WH Smith, Asda, Tesco, and many other retailers.
