Doctor Who Magazine #491

THE FIRST FOUR EPISODES OF THE NEW SERIES OF DOCTOR WHO, PREVIEWED  IN DWM 491!

Doctor Who Magazine #491 Full Cover

Doctor Who Magazine exclusively previews the first four episodes of the new series: The Magician’s Apprentice & The Witch’s Familiar and Under the Lake & Before the Flood

Under the Lake and Before the Flood form Toby Whithouse’s first two-part Doctor Who story – and it hinges on time travel – and fairly mind-bending time travel at that. While plotting and writing, did Toby ever come to regret taking the wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey route?

“Oh never, I loved it! I’ve always wanted to do a timey-wimey episode,” he says. “In fact, it was going to be a lot more timey-wimey, but we lost some of that before we started filming. It’s enormous fun to deposit something in a script, then have the reason for it happen later.”

This is also the first story that Toby’s written to star Peter Capaldi as the Doctor.

“I think he’s the most ‘alien’ Doctor we’ve had since the show came back,” says Toby. “Even though the essentials of the character remain the same – his heroism, his brilliance, his enthusiasm – he feels to me like much more of an outsider than Chris Eccleston or David Tennant or Matt Smith were. He’s more strange and otherwordly. That’s really interesting to play with.”

STEVEN MOFFAT PREVIEWS THE NEW SERIES OF DOCTOR WHO, EXCLUSIVELY IN DWM 490!

Doctor Who Magazine 490 Cover

Doctor Who Magazine spoke to the show’s executive producer and head writer, Steven Moffat, to give us a taste of what’s in store over the next 12 episodes…

“Why not start with a blockbuster?” says Steven of the two-part opening story, The Magician’s Apprentice and The Witch’s Familiar. “Why leave it till the last two weeks? So yes, it’s like starting with a finale, and having a big, grand, movie-sized story, as opposed to a 45-minute story.” (more…)

FAN FAVOURITE OSGOOD – aka INGRID OLIVER –

IS BACK ON ACTIVE DUTY IN DWM 488!

Doctor Who Magazine 488 Cover

The popular UNIT science whizz was apparently killed off at the hands of Missy in Death in Heaven – but the rumours of her death may have been exaggerated! Actress Ingrid Oliver tells DWM about her joy at Osgood’s unexpected return.

“When I died, I was like ‘Oh. That’s a shame. That is a shame.” I really didn’t think I would return,” Ingrid tells DWM, revealing that she was shocked at the response to the UNIT operative’s demise. “I can’t watch myself on TV, so I deliberately made the decision to go out. And then I got a text from my agent saying, ‘Oh my God, you’re trending on Twitter!’ It was absolute insanity to me.” (more…)

JENNA COLEMAN TALKS ABOUT THE LOVES AND LIVES OF CLARA OSWALD, EXCLUSIVELY IN DWM 482!

Jenna Coleman, who plays the Doctor’s companion Clara Oswald, gives a revealing interview about her time so far on Doctor Who

DWM asks Jenna if the Doctor and Clara can finally move on in their relationship – and after the sacrifice of Danny Pink, can things ever be the same again? “I think so,” Jenna says. “But they are a bit addicted to each other, and to the dynamic that they share. It’s getting so that one can’t go without the other, and I think that’s definitely what Clara’s realised. In a way that’s quite dangerous now, because she realises that there is no going back for her…”

Doctor Who Magazine 480 – The Mistress Returns!

MICHELLE GOMEZ REVEALS THAT THE MASTER WILL RETURN – IN DWM 480!

Doctor Who Magazine 480

Michelle Gomez, who plays the latest incarnation of that galactic jackanapes the Master, speaks to Doctor Who Magazine about her evil role…

“Everything about making the Master the Mistress kind of ups the ante,” says Michelle. “It makes everything that little bit more dangerous. It blows open this Pandora’s box.”
Michelle probably can’t reveal whether or not she’ll be back as Missy next year, but DWM asks her anyway, apropos of nothing.
“Yes,” replies Michelle.
Now, that was surprising!
“‘Yes’ is my answer. I’ll be back. Can I say that? Am I allowed? If not… well, I guess we’ll have to see how she’s received…”

Read Peter Capaldi’s most extensive and revealing interview to date, only in DWM 477!

In a bumper-sized 100-page issue, DWM catches up on set with the PETER CAPALDI –  the new Doctor Who.

Doctor Who Magazine Issue 477

Doctor Who Magazine asked Peter how he has gone about making the part of the Doctor his own…
“Well,” says Peter, “you begin with yourself. You begin with those elements of yourself that you feel would be at home in the role. There’s an old actors’ adage that you don’t become the role, the role becomes you. It’s trying to find those parts of you that will fit with the Doctor, and understand those bits that don’t come so naturally to you, that you have to fabricate. I kept looking for people in my life who I thought had elements of the Doctor about them, and were inspirational in some ways. I composed a list of those…” (more…)
