Prepare to be deleted when you pick up the latest issue of Doctor Who Magazine as it takes a trip through time to uncover the evolution of the Cybermen.

The metal monsters are celebrating their 50th anniversary this month, having first appeared in the First Doctor’s regeneration serial The Tenth Planet back in October 1966. Half a century later, they’ve become one of the show’s most iconic adversaries, stomping their way into the 21st century in the Series 2 two-parter Rise of the Cybermen/The Age of Steel. But what has contributed to their enduring appeal?

Also inside DWM #504, showrunner Steven Moffat answers more reader questions as the Doctor goes domestic in a brand new comic-strip, Moving In. All of that plus the usual news, reviews and more, so upgrade your magazine collection by picking it up today. It’s on sale now and comes with four (count ‘em!) collector’s covers to choose from. Delete!

Their latest issue (it’s #503, for those of you who are keeping count) is on sale now and inside there’s an exclusive chat with its cover star Peter Davison who looks back on his tenure as the Fifth Doctor in his most revealing interview to date. Plus, Steven Moffat discusses Series 10, including the return of Nardole, and there’s the latest news, comics and more!

The latest Doctor Who Magazine is about to materialise and they’re taking a trip into the future to introduce us to our brand new TARDIS team!

Although Series 10 won’t actually hit our screens until 2017 (as if you need reminding!), it’s business as usual for the cast and crew who are working their little socks off in Cardiff – and, this week, Spain – to bring the Twelfth Doctor’s third string of adventures to life. They will introduce new companion Bill, as played by Pearl Mackie, and welcome back Matt Lucas’ Nardole from The Husbands of River Song.

Inside DWM #502, outgoing showrunner Steven Moffat and casting director Andy Pryor discuss what fans can expect from this exciting new dynamic, plus there’s the usual array of in-depth features, competitions, comics and more. In addition, the issue – which is on sale this Thursday (28th July), priced £5.99 – comes with 3 free posters and 4 art cards.

steven-reveals-bills-full-name-era-other-tidbits

Steven Moffat has revealed some interesting tidbits about the new companion in the latest issue of Doctor Who Magazine, on sale now.

The TARDIS’ incoming co-resident will be played by Pearl Mackie who made her on screen debut in Friend from the Future last month. If you didn’t guess from the short but sweet scene, her character will be “a bit more gobby” than her predecessors, as the showrunner explains: “She is someone who asks the questions that nobody has asked for 53 years, the stuff you’re not supposed to ask…”

Meanwhile, Bill – which is short for Billie, unless Steven “changes his mind again” – will be introduced under “very unusual” circumstances in the first episode of Series 10 next year, which means that, as expected, this year’s Christmas Special will feature a one-off “guest companion” instead. Regarding Bill’s era, Steven affirmed that she’s from present day Earth as he likened her 1980’s vibe as “what young people are wearing these days”.

What do you make of these developments? Let us know in the comments section below…

dwm-celebrates-500th-issue

It’s been an historic week for Doctor Who Magazine who published their bumper 500th issue on Thursday.

The landmark edition sports a specially commissioned cover featuring Peter Capaldi recreating the first ever issue, which was released – priced 12p – under the name of ‘Doctor Who Weekly’ on 17th October 1979. Inside Issue 500, the Twelfth and Fourth Doctors chats exclusively about its momentous history which has seen it become the longest running tie-in magazine of all time. Not too shabby for something that all started out as a mild curiosity in a junkyard!

It’s not all about commemorating the past, though. Incoming companion Pearl Mackie has written a letter to the fans as Steven Moffat reveals more about her character, Bill, as well as some tantalising tidbits about her first adventures in Series 10. All of that plus the usual news, reviews, competitions and more! DWM #500 is on sale now for £9.99 and comes in a special card envelope with a bonus 116-page supplement, a poster, stickers and art card.

A brand new Doctor Who Magazine has been released this week and you’ll have no trouble spotting it on the shelves as it features two of the most familiar and beloved faces in sci-fi history.

And no, we’re not talking about Captain Jack and River Song (although how great would that be?!). This month’s cover stars are none other than David Tennant and Catherine Tate who – just in case you missed the memo – have reunited for a new range of Big Finish audio adventures which will be released to buy and download next month.

Inside Issue #498, the real life alter egos of the Tenth Doctor and Donna Noble spill the beans on their forthcoming return to the airwaves, which Catherine describes as “original” and “very fun to do”. Meanwhile, John Leeson reveals what it’s like to be the voice of K-9 as Elisabeth Sladen’s daughter, Sadie Miller, reflects on growing up in the world of Doctor Who. There’s all of that and more in Doctor Who Magazine #498, out now priced at £4.99.

celebrate-the-tv-movie-in-dwm-497

This week welcomes the release of a brand new Doctor Who Magazine and this one promises to take us on a journey back to 1996 to mark the emerald anniversary of the TV Movie.

It’s almost been 20 years since Paul McGann appeared on our screens as the Eighth Doctor, with his feature-length debut adventure premiering on Canadian TV on 12th May 1996. Inside Issue #497, the man himself – Paul McGann – reflects on his inaugural TARDIS journey, which turned out to be his first and only official adventure at its helm as plans for a full series were shelved shortly afterwards.

The movie’s co-stars, Daphne Ashbrook, Eric Roberts and Yee Jee Tso, are also on hand to share their respective memories, and you can take a look at its celebratory cover below. It goes on sale this Thursday, 3rd March, at the usual price of £4.99. Miss it and miss out!
