THE ESSENTIAL DOCTOR WHO: ALIEN WORLDS
Issue 3 of The Essential Doctor Who is a lavish 116 page guided tour of some of the numerous planets visited by the Doctor. The tour begins at Alfava Metraxis and ends at Zolfa-Thura, taking in some of the best known worlds visited by the Time Lord along with some of the lesser known ones.
Alien Worlds features an introduction by Toby Hadoke, a feature by the Public Astronomer Dr Marek Kukula, an article by Mark Wright on the history of the Doctor Who production design and an interview with the writers and editors of Doctor Who Magazine’s comic strip. Other highlights include maps of Marinus, Dulkis and Spiridon by illustrator Paul Smith.
Editor Marcus Hearn, said:
Alien Worlds is a departure from the style of earlier issues. The encyclopaedic format has enabled us to cover everything from 1963 to 2014, and to harmonise the sometimes complicated histories of worlds such as Skaro, Trenzalore and the Moon. We’ve packed in a huge amount of information, but designer Peri Godbold has ensured that each page looks beautiful.
The Essential Doctor Who: Alien Worlds is out now!
