Doctor Who Radio Times Cover

With thanks to The Radio Times

In the new issue of Radio Times, on sale from today, we have interviews with Karen Gillan, Matt Smith and Arthur Darvill, plus an episode guide by Steven Moffat.

Talking about the new companion, Karen Gillan says:

“I’ve met Jenna and we get on really well. And I’ve been texting her bits and bobs about Matt, but what I wrote is a secret. That’s the code of the companion. I didn’t offer her any advice though because I want her to have the experience for herself. I didn’t want to plant any preconceptions in her head.”

On the Doctor’s 50th anniversary next year, Matt Smith says:

“We want to make it as big and bold and as brilliant as we can because, we hope, it can be one of the monumental bits of TV history. But I doubt there’ll be a regeneration…”

Radio Times is on sale from Tuesday 28 August 2012 (for listings 1-7 September). More information at

    Thanks Boo Boo ;).

    Hopefully if anyone else does reply I might decide to buy them or not.

    At the moment I’m saving up to buy the Remembrance of the Daleks and Revenge of the Cybermen gift sets at Forbidden Planet in London, plus I’m hopeing to one day buy the Emperor Dalek version of Davros with destroyed Imperial Dalek off Amazon for £54.99 since Forbidden Planet or the Who Shop in East Ham don’t seem to sell it.

    Oh how I sometimes wish good old Woolworths never closed down, if they where still around I might have got lucky and brought them from them 🙁

    well they are part of Doctor Who History, personally i am not keen on them however they do look very impressive “Live” at events such as the proms and doctor who live

    Maybe wait to see if any new figures are released as they appear to have had tweaks to the colour schemes?

    Should have said that I’m refering to the 5inch figures, or 6inch whatever they are.

    Quick question to everyone [or anyone atleast reading this comment] here on The Doctor Who Site.

    Due to all this hype about Asylum of the Daleks featuring Classic Daleks with their modern 21st Century successors, I was wondering if it’s worth adding the 5 Paradigm Daleks to my Dalek collection even thou I don’t personally like them yet I do have afew from old issues of Doctor Who Adventures, such as the one with green slime inside it.

    Is it worth adding them despite not liking the design ?.

    Thanks everyone.

    Jason 🙂

    Also, look between Amy and the Dalek sort of facing her, they appears to be part of the lower case of the Dalek behind the Dalek.

    DAVROS ? 😀

    Here guys, if you go here and view the image of the Doctor, Amy and Rory with the Daleks around them, click the picture to enlarge it and you’ll notice the Dalek on the right at the very hand has the Union Jack on it – IT’S A IRONSIDE DALEK !.

    But how can that be thou ?, only 2 Time War Daleks out of the 3 seen in Victory of the Daleks had there casing painted green and had the Union Jack plastered over their I.D. tags as part of their plan to trick to the Doctor into revealing they are Daleks, and then they where destroyed along with the un-painted Time War Dalek by the Paradigm Daleks.

    Funnily enough, I just got DW Adventures Issue 283 about an hour ago. I was looking around, until I saw the cover! At the beginning, I didn’t notice that it was Radio Time and thought it was DWM. It looks good though! 🙂
