Seems there's a bit about DWM in the latest issue of Private Eye.

Well there's no denying Pegg's sentiments now then, is there! :lol:
I mean, I can kind of see their point in writers using DWM to whine about Blake's7 rewatch and One of the unmentionables (though they don't seem to have a problem with it in the actual program, which is more than a tad hypocritical!) but it seems any and all criticism of modern Who's (for want of a better word) excretions will soon be completely expunged from the mag if they have their way!
:roll: at them wanting to install a young, "preferably female" (hang on, isn't that pure unadulterated sexism? Oh, sorry, I forgot, sexism's awesome so long as it benefits women) editor. No doubt they'd prefer one who wouldn't have seen an episode of classic Who too.... Dear me. :roll:
(Doctor Who) has been hijacked and redefined as a lucrative modern franchise. They've literally taken a square peg and painfully made it fit a round hole by taking enormous liberties with much of its fundamental essence. There's no turning back now.

I've never understood why the BBC didn't take more of an interest, based on things like Tom Spilsbury's insistence that DWM was independent and the reviews of unlicensed material (like, for instance, Seasons of War) in the magazine. I've worked with other properties, and the material gets approved by the IP holder every step of the way, from the outline to the galleys. If Spilsbury and his crew had "gone rogue" -- ie., not toeing the official BBC line and not presenting the series in the best possible light -- they were doing the BBC and Panini a real disservice, imho.

A slightly more readable version, FWIW (courtesy of iank on another forum).

By pure coincidence, I am currently trying to fill the gaps in my DWM collection via Ebay and among the new acquisitions is issue 77 from June 1983. I wonder........

I see they've got another one of those Essential Doctor Who magazine things out.

Image

Some blurb I managed to find on it.
Panini’s lavish bookazines continue with a 116-page issue devoted to the Doctor’s journeys through time, and the greatest plots hatched by his time-travelling adversaries.

Doctor Who was conceived as a format that would go backwards, forwards and sideways in time. Ever since those early black-and-whites days, the series has stayed true to that concept with innovative stories exploring every aspect of the fourth dimension. The Essential Doctor Who: Time Travel talks to the actors, writers and directors who helped to create these memorable episodes.

Elsewhere in this issue there are guides to the greatest time-travel stories – including the classics Blink and City of Death – along with details of unmade scripts, previously unseen images and much more.

Maybe they should adapt the regular DWM to more fit this format and make it bi-monthly.
They could have specific issues dedicated to a new series when it's on air.

I've been thinking of ending my subscription to DWM for a few months now anyway! I've had enough of the modern version of the show run by Moffat and especially with all the rest of the stuff we're being force fed! Mr.Pegg is of the same thinking as a lot of us only the BBC don't give a damn about what we say or do but with him he gets the chop! A bit of mind control and the idea of a female Doctor is good for the show whatever we think is not the way to run the magazine or the TV series, especially if you want it to carry on I think! Here's to Mr.Pegg! ;)

FYI, the article replacing "Wotcha" is "Blogs of Doom", a page devoted to various "log entries" from bit characters from Doctor Who canon

The 2018 Yearbook thing apparently. Don't know much about it except from what's on the cover and that it's due out this Thursday.

Image

EDIT: Added the blurb.

Doctor Who Magazine SPECIAL 48 – THE 2018 YEARBOOK
At the end of 2017 a remarkable chapter in the history of Doctor Who draw to a close. Two incarnations of the Time Lord overcame an existential threat… before the arrival of the Thirteenth Doctor heralded a bold new era for the programme.

The latest Special Edition of Doctor Who Magazine is a unique celebration of the Twelfth Doctor’s final adventures, from The Return of Doctor Mysterio through to Twice Upon a Time. Packed full of all-new features and previously unseen images, this is the essential guide to the year in Doctor Who.

Highlights include exclusive new interviews with:

Joe Browning, Jimmy Mann, Gary Pollard and Kate Walshe (Millennium FX)
Ysanne Churchman (the voice of Alpha Centauri in Empress of Mars)
Matthew Clark (graphic designer, 2017 series)
Rachel Denning (Erica in The Pyramid at the End of the World)
Mark Gatiss (Captain Lethbridge-Stewart in Twice Upon a Time)
Stephanie Hyam (Heather in The Pilot and The Doctor Falls)
Adele Lynch (Iraxxa in Empress of Mars)
Rove McManus (host of Australian show Whovians)
Rachel Talalay (director of three episodes in the 2017 series)
Alexandra Tynan (designer of the original Cybermen)

Editor Marcus Hearn says: “The latest Yearbook is out a little later than usual, because we wanted to complete our coverage of the Twelfth Doctor’s stories by including Twice Upon a Time. This issue covers more episodes than any previous Yearbooks, but there are many other fantastic articles in there too. We hope this is a great souvenir of an incredible era.”

The Doctor Who Magazine Yearbook 2018 is on sale now at WH Smith and all good newsagents, price £5.99.
