Doctor Who: The Complete History Issue 2

Although not a comic, this publication may be of interest to some of you. The second book in the partwork series of Doctor Who: The Complete History is in the shops now. The 152 page hardback focuses on the Jon Pertwee stories Colony In Space, The Daemons, and Day of the Daleks from 1971/72. (These were the episodes broadcast during the run of Countdown comic so I always associate them with that comic, reading Countdown's Doctor Who comic strip on Saturday afternoon and watching Doctor Who at teatime.)



The books are a co-production between Hachette and Panini UK and are first class productions, both in design and in the information they contain. Published fortnightly, the next one will focus on the Peter Capaldi stories Deep Breath and Into the Dalek, whilst issue 4 will spotlight the first William Hartnell stories 100,000 BC and The Mutants (AKA The Daleks).


Issue 2 is at the special price of £6.99, after which the books will be at their regular price of £9.99. For more info see the official website:

...and don't forget that the Doctor encounters The Daleks again tonight on BBC One!

It's very frustrating that you can only subscribe to these in a handful on countries outside the UK. Off to ebay to pay marked up prices. I guess...

That seems shortsighted on their part. I suppose it's possible that some countries might be getting their own language editions. (I think that happens with some part works.) Although I can't see that happening in smaller countries.

I used to write for the 'Marvel Figurine Collection' part work, and came across a french language copy of one of mine in Paris. Bought it for my mom-in-law (she's french); dunno if she ever read it but now when we go over she's got a little statue of Daredevil on the mantelpiece. I think she thinks I invented him.
