The DWM 403
403rd issue of was current from Doctor Who Magazine 11 December 2008 through 7 January 2009. It humorously lampooned the magazine's tradition of announcing a new actor as the Doctor by billing that David Morrissey "is the next Doctor", referring to the title of the 2008 Christmas special, . This also subtly disproved him as the The Next Doctor Tenth Doctor's actual successor, since Morrissey played only a pastiche of the Doctor in the special, Jackson Lake.
