DWM meets the monster-maker!
Yes, it's another issue of Doctor Who's Space Comic, crammed full with all the latest news gleaned from the offices of BBC Wales! Er, but no photos quite yet. Sorry.
Prosthetics wizard Neill Gorton tells us about his role on the new series, and which creatures he particularly admires from the original show! Producer Phil Collinson gives his thoughts on the latest cast-members to join the new series! We exclusively reveal the director for Block Two! Plus Russell T Davies arrives in Cardiff and spills the beans on the start of recording in a two-page Production Notes!
There's also the second part of a chat with former script editor Eric Saward, who reveals what he thinks was the worst Doctor Who story ever (it's one of his, apparently).
Meanwhile, the history of Doctor Who Magazine continues in the second part of Happy Times and Places?, as Shaun Lyon Hearn discovers how the magazine managed to survive, when the TV series itself fell quite a few hurdles back.
You can also find out how the Doctor's travels with Marco Polo conclude in the final part of the Telesnap archive; join the Time Team as they don kilts to watch Terror of the Zygons; find out what's Coming Up; and see how all the latest books, audios and DVDs have fared in our DWM Reviews.
Plus! Don't miss the second part of new comic strip adventure, The Flood, to discover just what the Cybermen are doing skulking around in Camden. We're sure they're not just there for the bargains and noodles ...
