The makers of Doctor Who Magazine are back with their seventh Doctor Who Essential bookazine dedicated to the Doctor’s own – the Time Lords. The most powerful civilisation in the universe.
This new special includes interviews with Terrance Dicks (co-writer of The War Games), Stephen Thorne (who played Omega in The Three Doctors), Michael Jayston (the Valeyard in The Trial of a Time Lord), Douglas Mackinnon (the director of Listen) and T’Nia Miller (who played the female incarnation of Gallifrey’s General in Hell Bent). While Andrew Smith – the writer of the 1980 storyFull Circle – interviews Lalla Ward, who played the second incarnation of Time Lady Romana.
This richly illustrated, 116-page issue also includes comic strips, guides to more Time Lord books and complex look at the events of the Time War. Each Gallifrey story receives its own, two-page episode guide.
“The events of the last series restored the Time Lords, and their home planet Gallifrey, to the forefront of Doctor Who,” says editor Marcus Hearn. “We’ve brought together that mythology and production information in a guide that covers everything you need to know – from The Time Meddler in 1965 to Hell Bent in 2015.”
The Essential Doctor Who: The Time Lords is on sale now at WH Smith and other newsagents, price £9.99.
