Issue #354 of Doctor Who Magazine is out this week. Attached is the press release and cover illustration; click on the image for a larger version.
Doctor Who Magazine are counting down the last days before the new series starts with a wealth of features.

This issue, they track down Doctor Who's extraordinarily busy executive producer Julie Gardner for an in-depth chat about what to expect over the coming months on BBC One.

"I genuinely believe that I'm working on something that has the best dramatic format in the world. To have a structure where you can go anywhere in time, and you've got an alien and a human girl discovering things about each other, facing death each week with humour and action and tragedy... it's the most glorious format that I could ever hope for and I absolutely love it!"

That's not all, though - the magazine also take a sneaky peek at the first episode, Rose, in the first of their new series previews.

Meanwhile, Gallifrey Guardian reveals exclusive casting updates for Episodes 11, 12 and 13 - and there's a huge competition where you can win the chance to see Episode One before its television broadcast!

And if all that still isn't enough to get you excited, Russell T Davies pops up to give some hints about series two in his unmissable Production Notes.

Fact of Fiction feature tackles Spearhead from Space, there's an Archive Extra on Daleks Invasion Earth: 2150AD, and a preview of BBC Audio's Doctor Who and the Daleks release.

Finally, the mag bids a fond farewell to Paul McGann's Eighth Doctor, Gareth Roberts takes a look at what's been going on in the world since Doctor Who was last regularly on TV and the Time Team continue their Doctor Who viewing with The Robots of Death and The Talons of Weng-Chiang.

Oh, and there's a lovely blue monster on the cover. Hooray!

DWM 354 goes on sale from Thursday 3 March.
