Which areas of Doctor Who continuity don’t quite make sense? Which parts contradict the others? You’ll likely immediately think of two examples: The Timeless Children and all that came with it; and the Doctor saying he’s half-human (on his mother’s side).
The former occupies the cover of the latest issue of Doctor Who Magazine, which has canon-heavy sections on the Doctor, the TARDIS, Gallifrey, the Daleks and the Cybermen. (Personally, I’ve never had any issues with Who continuity on TV, up to the Timeless Child stuff, but I keep hearing online about how continuity never made sense anyway, so I guess this issue of DWM is vital after all…)
The issue also includes:
- Arthur Darvill, who played Rory Williams, answers questions from the TARDIS Tin.
- Hair and make-up designer, Claire Pritchard discusses her work on Series 12.
- The writers and artists behind Cutaway Comics explain how the imprint is expanding the worlds of Doctor Who.
- An at-a-glance guide to the ‘Lockdown Season’ of Doctor Who, with contributions from Russell T Davies and Steven Moffat.
- The Fact of Fiction explores the 1968-69 Second Doctor serial, The Krotons.
- A look at the animated version of Shada, released in 2003.
- A review of Character Options’ latest range of action figures.
PLUS: Big Finish previews and reviews, news, prize-winning competitions, Time and Space Visualiser, The Blogs of Doom, and much more.
