Doctor Who Magazine Special: The Year of the Doctor

Doctor Who Magazine celebrates the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who with the new Special Edition, The Year of the Doctor.

Researched and compiled by the ever-reliable Andrew Pixley, this guide takes readers behind the scenes on arguably the most important year for Doctor Who so far. The 100-page special is chock-full of previously unpublished photos; day-to-day details from writing to casting announcement, filming to post-production; ratings; full cast and crew listings; and hundreds of fascinating facts.

The Year of the Doctor covers the 50th Anniversary Special The Day of the Doctor; the Eighth Doctor minisode The Night of the Doctor; Matt Smith’s final story The Time of Doctor; the drama based on the origins of WhoAn Adventure in Space and Time; the hilarious The Five(ish) Doctors RebootDoctor Who at the Proms 2013; the Brian Cox lecture The Science of Doctor Who; BBC3’s Doctor Who: The Ultimate Guide; CBBC’s Me, You and Doctor WhoDoctor Who Live: The Afterparty (which should be… interesting), and then some!

Actually, isn’t it odd that the 50th anniversary DVD and Blu-ray collections reportedly don’t include Me, You and Doctor Who?

This, sadly, is the last Special Edition to focus on the Matt Smith era of Doctor Who.

The Year of the Doctor is on sale now, priced £5.99.
