The official Doctor Who website has details on the first issue ofDoctor Who Adventures, the new magazine intended for younger audiences than the official magazine. "Following in the massive success of the 2005 series of Doctor Who amongst younger viewers, BBC Magazines is launching a brand new fortnightly publication aimed at 6-12 year olds. Toni Round, Publisher of BBC Youth & Children's Magazines commented: 'Doctor Who Adventures will be packed with monsters and secrets, and be full of entertainment, action and humour - the must-have magazine for young fans.' Doctor Who Adventures will include original comic strips featuring the Tenth Doctor and Rose, interviews, competitions, puzzles and behind-the-scenes photos. Each issue will also come with a free gift on the cover - Issue 1 boasts a Doctor Who stationery set. Eager young (and not-so-young) readers can get their hands on the first edition from 5 April." The site also confirms that BBC Books' Doctor Who: Aliens and Enemies, a sequel to Justin Richards' "Monsters and Villains" from last year, is now due on May 22.
