Doctor Who Magazine Issue 551 out this Thursday

Doctor Who Magazine Issue 551 is out this Thursday, leading former showrunners Russell T. Davies and Steven Moffat interviewing each other about their work – and there are plenty of other goodies, too!

Inside the 84-page issue, current showrunner Chris Chibnall teases future plans and the Magazine looks back at The Caves of Androzani, the story that rounded off the Peter Davison era on the show. Plus, something I’m really looking forward to – the next episode in the current comic strip, set in 1950s America, “The Piggybackers“, written by Scott Gray, with art by Martin Geraghty, inked by David A. Roach, coloured by James Offredi and lettered by Roger Langridge. The latest Thirteenth Doctor comic strip has been an absolute delight!

I’m also delighted to report I played a very small role in the making of this issue. In conversation with Lew Stringer, I suggested an idea for his regular “Daft Dimension” cartoon strip, which he pitched at the DWM editorial team – and they went for it.
