Additional details Edit
- This issue was priced £1.95 (UK). It had a cover by artist Peter Wallbank featuring the Fifth Doctor and the Malus from The Awakening.
- A listing of all Doctor Who Magazine (special issues) and chart positions of the first twenty-two Doctor Who video releases are also featured.
- On the copyright page of the magazine (usually page 3) is a box of very small text. The end of this text reads, “Dangerous Vworping Noises courtesy of ILM. (A lie, sorry.)” ... and so begins a long tradition in the pages of Doctor Who Magazine.
