Radio Times is celebrating Doctor Who’s 50th anniversary with an interactive special edition and a choice of 12 collectable covers - one for each of the Doctors who've appeared over the last 50 years.

The special issue is the 50th Radio Times Doctor Who cover since the iconic time traveller first graced the front page in 1964 and the magazine features archive interviews with each of the actors to have played the Doctor.
