Doctor Who: The Five Doctors art offered as jigsaw

Artist Andrew Skilleter has created a jigsaw based on his Radio Times-commissioned Doctor Who art to promote The Five Doctors, first published back in 1983.

The Five Doctors Radio Times Cover 1983 - Jigsaw by Andrew Skilleter

Back then, the Radio Times had a circulation of over three million and cost just 28p, but as now, Doctor Who was staple part of the magazine’s most engaging features – so I’d imagine that a cover to mark the show’s twentieth anniversary was never much in doubt.

The Five Doctors Radio Times Cover 1983 is available for the first time ever as a large size limited edition 1000 piece Jigsaw. Presented in a strong shrink wrapped full colour box, each is accompanied by an A4 full colour signed souvenir containing rare images and information relating to the art and the Radio Times cover.

Published by and only available directly from, the artist, the jigsaw – which will be produced in small quantities, due to high production costs – is available to pre-order now, with delivery expected in late June
