Doctor Who Magazine #406 Press Release

Issue #406 of Doctor Who Magazine was released yesterday and is now on sale across the United Kingdom and Ireland. This month's issue includes an exclusive look at the American Dalek spin-off show which was never made, interviews with both David Tennant and Gareth Roberts and much more. You can read the press release below:

DAVID TENNANT puts on a happy face, in Doctor Who Magazine 406 – ON SALE NOW!

Talking exclusively to DWM, the Doctor himself, DAVID TENNANT, talks candidly about presenting this year’s Comic Relief...

“I’m co-presenting this year’s TV extravaganza , on BBC One on Friday the 13th – which won’t be unlucky this year, I promise... Live telly is always exhilarating, but I’m sure this will be even more so, because I’m expected to be fronting it – well, the first hour or so, which does give me some more responsibility...” How does he think he’ll cope presenting alongside Davina McCall? She is, after all, the Loudest Woman on Telly. “Well, I’ve had a word with the sound men to turn my microphone up louder, so I’m hoping that should equalise it out a bit! It’ll be a challenge!”

Also in this issue:

Back in the 1960s, while the First and Second Doctors were on TV, the Daleks came very close to starring in their own big-budget, full colour film series – made for the USA! For the first time anywhere, DWM researcher Andrew Pixley reveals the full story behind the Doctor Who spin-off that never was...

A brand new comic strip adventure starts for the Tenth Doctor and Majenta – MORTAL BELOVED by Dan McDaid, with art by Sean Longcroft. Arriving at a bizarre party, terrible secrets from Majenta’s past begin to catch up with her...

It the end, but the moment has been prepared for... The Fact of Fiction takes an in-depth look at the very last adventure to star Tom Baker as the Fourth Doctor – a story that redefined the concept of Time Lord regeneration – 1981’s LOGOPOLIS!

Er, no, actually. But the Sixth Doctor is! COLIN BAKER chats exclusively to DWM from the Big Apple!

Head writer and executive producer RUSSELL T DAVIES muses over whether Planet of the Dead will really be the 200th TV Doctor Who story, in Production Notes...

Why on Earth does Neil Harris argue that the Fifth Doctor’s last adventure, 1984’s THE CAVES OF ANDROZANI, is the one Doctor Who story that should never have been told? Find out the surprising answer in You Are Not Alone!

The Time Team cast their critical eyes upon the Seventh Doctor’s only TV encounter with the armoured mutants from the planet Skaro. Join them and discover what they think about the nostalgic 1988 adventure, REMEMBRANCE OF THE DALEKS...

DWM speaks exclusively to acclaimed scriptwriter GARETH ROBERTS about his work on Doctor Who, The Sarah Jane Adventures... and the forthcoming Doctor Who Easter Special, Planet of the Dead!

Nicholas Pegg pays tribute to the greatest Dalek operator of them all – actor JOHN SCOTT MARTIN.

Plus! All the latest news, previews, reviews, competitions and more!
Have a smile with the Dalek-table DWM 406 ­– out now, price £3.99!

Due to a recent fire at the binding house in which Doctor Who Magazine is printed, the issue will be delayed in various parts of the U.K and Ireland. Issue #407 will be released on the 2nd of April and will include a preview of the upcoming Doctor Who special, Planet of the Dead. Will you be buying Doctor Who Magazine #406?
