To celebrate the new series of Doctor Who, Newsweek have released a Special Edition issue. On sale today the Newsweek Doctor Who Special Edition covers the history of the show right up to the Jodie Whittaker era.
We are also excited to announce that the Newsweek Doctor Who Special Edition features an article from Blogtor Who!!
Newsweek is an American weekly magazine, available in print and digital formats. Following New York Comic Con this past weekend and the broadcast of ‘The Woman Who Fell to Earth’ on BBC America, Newsweek are also exploring the Whoniverse. From the origins and formula of the show, through to the monsters that have terrorised viewers, all bases are covered. Focus is given to each incarnation of The Doctor and some of his most famous adversaries. Not to be forgotten are of course the TARDIS and Sonic Screwdriver. BlogtorWho has also contributed a short snippet on our favourite journalist and companion.
The cover promises ‘The Ultimate Whoniverse Companion’ and it is hard to disagree. Each Doctor is analysed, with their companions and must-see stories listed alongside. Plus, if you have ever wondered in which stories different incarnations of the Time Lord have crossed paths, an extensive list is provided. This includes not only televised stories but in audio, novels and comic adventures. Arthur Darvill, who played Rory Williams opposite Matt Smith’s Eleventh Doctor, also provides an insight into how the role changed his life. The Newsweek Doctor Who Special Edition concludes by revisiting the modern tradition of Christmas specials.
