purplecat: The Tardis (Doctor Who)

Page from DWM.  In big blue letters down the middle is the caption Hit for Six.  Either side of this are portraits of the first six Doctors, all publicity stills (I think).  Underneath the title it says: In this anniversary issue it seems appropriate to cast our gaze backward, and of course forward, to look at the development of the Doctor's character through the course of his six personae, an aspect of the series Richard Marson sees as vital for its continuing popularity.


This is from DWM's 100th issue, which seems rather low key in retrospect. The irony of this being the month news of the cancellation broke was clearly not lost on the editorial team, despite the comment above about the show's "continuing popularity".

A dark green boxout from The Essential Doctor Who Science and Technology Magazine.  It has the headline Existential Threat. A photo of me showing a small child how to use the Lego Rovers in the top left.  A circular picture of the Third Doctor being mind-programmed by BOSS is in the middle and a black and white photo of the First Doctor and Dodo in front of WOTAN is in the bottom left.  The text is blurred out because I have some morals.



A dark green boxout from The Essential Doctor Who Science and Technology Magazine.  It has the headline Machine Learning. A round headshot of me is in the middle.  A cut-out photo of one of the Smiley robots from Smile is centre bottom.  A shot of Bill and Nardole with the CERN physicist from Extremis is bottom left.  The text is blurred out because I have some morals.


[personal profile] sir_guinglain wrote a piece for The Essential Doctor Who:Science and Technology on Artificial Intelligence in Doctor Who and he thought it might be fun to get me to provide some discussion of the actual science. As a result I got not one, but two boxouts in the article!! The Teenager is immensely impressed and B. has purchased Prosecco (though, to be fair, it takes very little to provoke B. into purchasing Prosecco).

It isn't quite appearing in Doctor Who Magazine which would be beyond awesome, but its pretty close "From the makers of Doctor Who Magazine" runs the byline. I have been mentioned in DWM before: once because I won twenty miniature plastic Daleks and twenty miniature plastic Cybermen in a competition and once because I wrote in to inform them that my logic textbook had mentioned Doctor Who, but I've never had my photo in the magazine let alone boxouts all to myself.

I believe you can purchase The Essential Doctor Who:Science and Technology in W.H.Smiths though the Lime Street Station branch did not have it when I looked (fortunately [personal profile] sir_guinglain kindly managed to get me sent a complementary copy).

The cover of Doctor Who Monthly number 64 (EDIT: 62!). The first issue I bought. It was subsequently raided for pictures to cut out and stick onto things so I no longer appear to have the actual cover myself.
