The Ice Warriors and the Cybermen are on their way back to Doctor Who – so we have a choice of TWO monsters covers for our latest issue! Inside Issue 513, we preview the next four episodes to air, The Lie of the Land, Empress of Mars, The Eaters of Light and World Enough and Time.

Empress of Mars script writer Mark Gatiss tells us why he wanted to bring back the Ice Warriors in his new episode – but are they his all-time favourite Doctor Who monster?
“The Cybermen are my favourites and yet I’ve never written for them, but the Ice Warriors are among my favourites: a great monster,” Mark smiles. “I always loved the pride of them, their Viking qualities and the voice. Even though they’ve had so few appearances, they loom so large. So I’d always wanted to bring them back, because I thought I could do something with them. You can just do a bit of worldbuilding, because there’s so much to play with…”


Showrunner Steven Moffat answers readers’ questions about the latest series.

Part Two of the Doctor and Bill’s brand-new comic strip adventure, written by Scott Gray, with art by Martin Geraghty.

This issue’s Fact of Fiction uncovers the secrets of the 1967 story The Macra Terror, which saw the Second Doctor, Ben, Polly and Jamie visit a far-future colony that comes under attack from giant crabs!

DWM reviews the latest TV episodes (Knock Knock, Oxygen, Extremis and The Pyramid at the End of the World) as well as audio and DVD releases in the world of Doctor Who.

Here I was thinking that a sidearm included with your comic was a thing of the nostalgic past! ;-)

Lew Stringer said...

I'm guessing you don't live in the UK, Robert? Free gifts like that are in comics all the time.

The local WHS still puts the Paninis behind-the-till (grrr) but I did notice that issue 2 of DEADPOOL has retained the squarebound format adopted for issue 1. I wonder if this is an experiment to see whether it helps sales?

Lew Stringer said...

Possibly. Personally I prefer stapled spines on comics to glued ones.

I must admit I like the new Deadpool Unleashed comic.
