Spoilers are precisely defined here. Rules vary by the story's medium. Info from television stories can't be added here until after the top or bottom of the hour, British time, closest to the end credits roll on BBC One. Therefore, fans in the Americas who are sensitive to spoilers should avoid Tardis on Sundays until they've seen the episode.
This "Special 50th Issue" of DWM includes a free A2 full colour pull-out showing all four Doctors with a listing of their adventures (indicating the number of individual episodes). Although this is a stapled insert and so could be regarded as a part of the magazine and its occasional use of centre colour pages, the reverse side is blank and for this reason is not being counted as a 'normal' but a special addition.
The first part of a detailed Episode Guide to all the Doctor's adventures begins in this issue.
The Archives feature returns to breaking the story down into episodes.
The letters page is renamed "Doctor Who Letters".
The year is not included on the front cover, which had a cover price of 30p (UK).
