A new 116-page bookazine from the makers of Doctor Who Magazine.

Doctor Who’s 20th anniversary was a milestone in an era when few series had achieved such longevity. Huge transatlantic conventions, a variety of books and a National Film Theatre retrospective celebrated the programme’s status as a cultural institution.

But in many other respects, 1983 was about looking forward – British television now boasted four networks, microcomputers were becoming commonplace and a home video revolution was looming. Could the show maintain its prominence in this new landscape? All-new features, illustrated with rare and previously unseen images, reveal the story behind a momentous year.

Doctor Who: Chronicles – 1983 is on sale now, RRP just £9.99 from panini.co.uk and selected branches of WH Smith while stocks last. It’s also available digitally from pocketmags.com priced £8.99.
