Last month Jodie Whittaker was revealed to be the actor selected to take over from departing Twelfth Doctor Peter Capaldi this Christmas. She is the first female actor to take on the role of the enigmatic Time Lord. Doctor Who Magazine of course covered the announcement in Issue #515. Whilst her first appearance is still months away, Jodie Whittaker will make her cover debut for the world’s No 1 biggest-selling sci-fi magazine this month. Doctor Who Magazine will publish their first interview with the cover star and Thirteenth Doctor in Issue #516 available later this week. Whittaker can currently be seen on screens in BBCOne drama ‘Trust Me’, which is also available now on the BBC iPlayer.
The new issue of Doctor Who Magazine is also momentous as it sees Marcus Hearn debut publication as Editor. Also revealed by the cover are features including the work of monster makers Millennium FX and a peak at the sketch pad of Russell T Davies. The former Executive Producer has illustrated a new book of Time Lord prose which is out next month. Check out our preview here.
