Out Today: New Doctor Who Adventures (with free sonic screwdriver!)

Doctor Who Adventures Issue 7 - Cover

It’s October and Something Wicked This Way Comes… in the form of the wickedest magazine in the universe – Issue 7 of Doctor Who Adventures, out today – and imagine our horror to discover the usual opening letter was not from the Doctor… but Missy! Even one of the free gifts – a facsimile sonic screwdriver (that doesn’t do much, admittedly, but the cat enjoyed playing with it) couldn’t dampen our horror at this Halloween horror – or the issue’s huge celebration of monster mayhem!

Here’s a run down of the issue’s line-up…

When the Doctor comes to visit Clara, he finds the whole school fast asleep. Either Clara’s class is the most boring experience in the universe or the planet is under attack from a Somnosian Invasion Force. Comic strip action from Jason Quinn, Russ Leach and John Burns!


Get the low-down on Davros, dark lord of Skaro and creator of the Daleks!


Missy has kicked Clara out of the craft studio and shows you how to make an all-purpose gadget of evil. You may not be able to stop the planes with it but you’ll have somewhere cool to store your pencils!


Hack into the UNIT Alien Archives to find out more about the mysterious Shadow Proclamation


This month, Strax gives you a lesson on some of the various alien threats the Doctor has faced over the years, including the Abzorbalovians, the Balhoonians and the Carrionites.


A cool game for two, you are racing across Skaro and have to get to Davros before your opponent!


Rik Hoskin brings you the chilling story of the Misery Diary that reduces Strax and Jenny to tears. Can Madame Vastra break its uncanny spell?

Doctor Who Adventures #7 Issue 7 comes with a massive double-sided poster and your own Psychic Paper, wallet and sonic screwdriver and is on sale from today, Thursday 8th October, price £3.99 in all good newsagents (and some run by Sontarans).
