Doctor Who Magazine marks four decades of the greatest mag in the galaxy with a bumper special

Forty years on from Doctor Who Weekly #1, with its cover mounted transfers and Iron Legion comic strip adventure for the Fourth Doctor, Doctor Who Magazine #544 pays tribute. The special issue will come in a polybag alongside three brilliant extras. The contents will include.

  • Doctor Who Magazine #544
  • 100 minute DVD that includes new material exclusive to Doctor Who Magazine
  • The DWM Index: Your 32 page magazine guide to 544 issues worth of features and articles
  • 11 Big Finish adventures to download

DWM itself features a unique cover saluting the covers of years gone by, including the iconic DWW #1, the 20th Anniversary issue, Christopher Eccleston’s unveiling as the Ninth Doctor, DWM #500… and right up to Jodie Whittaker’s debut as the Thirteenth Doctor.

  • Paul Cornell pays tribute to the late Terrance Dicks
  • New interviews with Russell T Davies, Steven Moffat and Chris Chibnall
  • Original DWM editor Dez Skinn and original DWM Features writer Jeremy Bentham reunite to look back at their creation and their legacy
