Doctor Who Magazine
Advantages: Engaging, not biased, interesting features.
Disadvantages: You must have some sort of interest in Doctor Who! :P
There is sometimes a problem with official magazines in that, perhaps, they are just a little bit biased. They can be far too desperate to sell the products, that we soon get used to the fact that the hotly-anticipated new release will get 10/10 - reading more like a fan love letter, or brochure, than a rational review. Does Doctor Who Magazine follow this naughty trend?
Well, I will rather gladly say it doesn't....squeeeeee!!!! Oh, sorry, that jut came out. Just another word I learnt from the magazine - it's a community that has its little quirks. Not an exclusive one, however - the moment you start reading you feel like you are welcomed. That's down to the fact there are niches in the magazine for everyone - for the person who only watches the show as it airs, for the retro-DVD collector, for the book reader, the audio listener. It caters every fan.
But I digress. I never fully explained why I, ahem, 'squeed'. The reason is that it often does criticise the releases, revealing a dislike for many of the old episodes in its reviews, rather than a rose-tinted glasses view. Likewise, the interviews it features are not at all censored - if an actor had a horrible experience on set, he will jolly well say so!
The sometimes-criticism of 'Who' doesn't ruin the passion for the show, though. It enhances it, creating a lively debate that surrounds a genuine love for the show, channeled through the editors letter, the readers letters page, and the beautifully crafted comics, usually full of in-jokes that show an appreciation for the present show and its history.
To sum this all up - I would recommend this magazine to anyone with the slightest flame of passion for Doctor Who. Squeeeee!!
Summary: A brilliant magazine and a must have for Doctor Who fans.
