Random quote Edit

“When you get back home, you'll be heroes. But don't glamorise your adventures. Don't make them think war is an exciting game. Tell them about the fear and the danger. About the friends who won't be coming back ..."

The Doctor to Taron from Planet of the Daleks

Additional details Edit

  • This issue was priced £1.95 (UK). It had a cover by artist Peter Wallbank featuring the Fifth Doctor and the Malus from The Awakening.
  • A listing of all Doctor Who Magazine (special issues) and chart positions of the first twenty-two Doctor Who video releases are also featured.
  • On the copyright page of the magazine (usually page 3) is a box of very small text. The end of this text reads, “Dangerous Vworping Noises courtesy of ILM. (A lie, sorry.)” ... and so begins a long tradition in the pages of Doctor Who Magazine.
