Timelord Special - 100% Unofficial and Independent!!!

There's a publication out there - on the streets of Britain. A magazine apparently a souvenir of the BBCtv series Doctor Who. But it's cover suggests that it's 100% independent and unofficial - which kind of rules out the official Doctor Who magazine. 

Needless to say the care taken with it's production is evidently clear on its cover which features a carefully crafted montage of all of the Doctors - including Richard Hurndall taking his rightful place as the first Doctor.

I've yet to see the actual magazine in question - other than a photo of its cover gleaned from the Instagram account of a fellow Dr Who fan who goes by the unlikely name of Russell T Davies (!). 

For that reason, I've delved into my grimey subconscious and imagined its horrifying contents... 

Read on if you dare, faithful viewer.

A Selection of Classic Christmas Radio and TVTimes!

Mammoth double issues with mammoth double prices will soon be weighing down the dump bins just inside the doors of local supermarkets. Some of the dumpbins may also be still standing by the end of their first day on the job.

So to celebrate and in anticipation of the mad rush to see what five year old movie we'll be sleeping through on Christmas Day, here's a stocking full of seasonal Radio and TVTimes for your amusing...

The Doctor Who Quiz Books Of...

There were a series of largely educational quiz books published back in the early 80s. Written by Michael Holt, they featured the fifth Dr WHO and his assistants facing perplexing problems based around such themes as 'Space', 'Dinosaurs' and 'Magic'. Most of them ended up in remainded book shops as we Dr WHO fans didn't buy them much. 

Here's some modern versions that are themed around more relevant 21st century subjects...

Some more bits of Dr WHO artwork...

Finished doing these over the last weekend.
