The latest issue of Doctor Who Magazine (out in the shops on Thursday 13th January) features a new look, with 84 pages dedicated to the world of Doctor Who! The new issue looks ahead to the second series to feature Matt Smith as the Doctor, with both him and co-star Karen Gillan discussing what they think of each other and what's in store for their characters this coming year.

Matt comments on forthcoming monsters in the series:
There are some great monsters coming up in Series Two; Steven Moffat has created the greatest monsters since the Weeping Angels. It might even eclipse the Angels for me...
Karen adds:
I think it’s the scariest one yet, physically and just what it does. They’ve got one thing about them that feels almost undefeatable
