Doctor Who: Adventures in Time & Space - Cover & Info

BBC Books have revealed the cover and synopsis for a new Doctor Who roleplaying game:

Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space
Imagine you could go anywhere. This world or countless others, encountering strange alien races, new cultures or hostile environments. Now imagine you could travel to any time. See the pyramids and the Sphinx (back when she had a nose!), discover who (or what) really built Stonehenge, meet the first Emperor of Japan, or travel into the far future as humanity spreads to the stars. Where would you go?

With Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space, the power is in your hands! You can go anywhere or anywhen in the universe. It’s not going to be easy. It’ll probably be dangerous.

The universe is a hostile place, full of Daleks, Slitheen, Krillitane, Sontarans, Plasmavores, Cybermen, Sycorax, Judoon and worse. There will be fear, heartbreak and excitement, but above all, it’ll be the trip of a lifetime.

Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space is a roleplaying game set in the universe of the world’s longest running science fiction show on TV - the BBC’s Doctor Who. Published in a boxed format, the core set includes:

Doctor Who Magazine - Issue 412

The cover and info on this month's edition of Doctor Who magazine:

DWM takes a stroll in the woods with Fourth Doctor, Tom Baker. As we pick our way through the trees, we learn how to make the perfect bonfire, why Tom owns a gravestone and why it’s not a good idea to combine drinking and acting…

“In those days… it’s a long time ago, and it’s a world that no longer exists. It was a world where wine was available all the time, and hard drinking was a sign of being sociable. An actor who said, ‘No thanks, I can’t drink, or won’t drink’ wasn’t very interesting, because most of the conversation was fuelled by alcohol and cigarettes...”

Also in DWM issue 412:

Tom Baker is back in the studio as the Doctor in Hornets’ Nest, a new series of audio adventures for BBC Audio. DWM was present at the recording and gives a full report on proceedings, including exclusive interviews with the cast and crew.

In keeping with our celebration of Tom Baker’s return to the Doctor Who world, we step back in time to 1974 with The Fact of Fiction and take a look at the Fourth Doctor’s first adventure, Robot.

The Time Team’s Richard, Peter, Jac and Clay turn their square eyes to The Curse of Fenric and share their thoughts on this terrifying tale of World War II espionage, vampires and chess games.

Mary Tamm, who was the first incarnation of the Fourth Doctor’s companion, Romana talks to DWM about writing her autobiography and being a grandmother.

Outgoing Doctor Who supremo, Russell T Davies reflects on life in America, (including the revelation of chicken sausages) and his thoughts on the Eleventh Doctor’s costume.

The 45-minute long animation will be broadcast in its entirety on CBBC on BBC Two this Autumn and also on the BBC HD channel.

Written by Phil Ford (Doctor Who, Torchwood, Sarah Jane Adventures) Dreamland will see the Doctor - played by David Tennant - arrive at the infamous alien hot spot, Roswell.

During a visit to a local diner he stumbles upon a mysterious alien artefact that leads him on a mission to rescue Rivesh Mantilax from the threat of the Viperox and the clutches of the American military.

Joining David Tennant will be Georgia Moffett (Doctor Who, Spooks) in the role of Cassie Rice - the Doctor's new animated companion.

In the run up to the animation, fans will be able to visit the Doctor Who website to follow a behind-the-scenes production blog on the making of Dreamland, giving the opportunity to follow the progress of the animation as it develops.

Dreamland was commissioned by BBC Drama Multiplatform and will be produced for the BBC by Brighton-based animation company Littleloud.

It is being executive produced by Russell T Davies, Julie Gardner and Piers Wenger, with Gary Russell as director.

Russell T Davies said: "Dreamland is a remarkable project and I'm thrilled with it. Phil Ford is a wonderful writer and promises to send the Doctor into a whole new visual dimension."

Rosie Allimonos, BBC Drama Multiplatform Commissioner, said: "I'm extremely excited about Dreamland. It presents an amazing opportunity to expand the multiplatform storytelling potential of Doctor Who.

"To offer the ability to watch this brand new Doctor Who animation on so many different BBC platforms is a real treat for our audience."

The latest 100-page issue of Torchwood Magazine gets under the skin of the five-night television spectacular, kicking things off with a sensational interview over ten pages with the show’s creator Russell T Davies. Check out this page for all the information on the new issue, including our farewell to Ianto (right), stunning behind-the-scenes features, and lots more!

Nick Abadzis pens Torchwood comic strip
Broken Award-winning comic book writer and artist Nick Abadzis makes his Torchwood Magazine debut in the latest issue.

The author of the acclaimed graphic novel Laika writes part three of Broken, in which Gwen is plagued by ghosts of Torchwood's past, with illustrations by Paul Grist.

Russell T Davies
“I could write you scene one of season four right now.” So says Russell T Davies in a comprehensive interview in the latest issue of Torchwood Magazine. We’d been trying to pin Davies down for over a year, and having got his attention, it wasn’t an opportunity we were ever going to approach lightly. With no stone left uncovered, we grill the man who invented Torchwood on why Ianto had to die, what he thinks about politics, and what could be next for the show.

Making a Monster
Torchwood Magazine brings you a sensational line-up of behind-the-scenes coverage of Children of Earth in the latest issue, including a close-up account of the making of the 456. Russell T Davies’ brief, as outlined by the script, was to make “a huge, three-headed, eyeless beast, with raw, wet skin, like its flesh has been stripped.” Find out how Millennium FX went about meeting the challenge, with exclusive photography from their workshop and the Floor 13 set.

Random Shoes revisited!
Torchwood Magazine continues to look back at the trailblazing first series of the show in the latest issue. Remember when Torchwood ‘fan’ Eugene Jones found himself invisible and where he always wanted to be: sitting alongside Gwen Cooper in the Torchwood SUV? We revisit Random Shoes, first aired way back in December 2006, in a comprehensive episode guide. Plus, we talk to actor Paul Chequer, who guest starred in the episode as the naive but lovable Eugene.

Paul Copley
We talk to Children of Earth’s Clem MacDonald.

Day by Day
An in-depth trawl through the making of Children of Earth, one day at a time!

Day Five set report
We sneak into Johnson’s high-tech hideout for an exclusive set visit.

Doctor Who: Regenerated 6th Doctor Figure - FP Exclusive

Character Options have revealed a new classic Doctor Who figure, exclusive to Forbidden Planet:

Regenerated 6th Doctor
This set features an exclusive action figure of the newly regenerated 6th Doctor as played by Colin Baker still wearing the mud splashed outfit of his previous incarnation. Change my dear .. And it seems not a moment too soon!

The Tardis arrives on Androzani Minor, the source of a life-prolonging drug refined from a substance called Spectrox. Production of the drug is controlled by Sharaz Jek, a madman in self imposed exile, who blames Morgus, a powerful industrialist on Androzani Major, for all his misfortunes. The two sides are pitched in a convoluted ongoing war which, unknown to Jek, gives Morgus a monopoly of Spectrox on his planet, Major. Jek becomes infatuated with Peri, and saves her and the Doctor from being executed on Morgus’s orders.

However, the two travellers learn that they have contracted spectrox toxaemia, a fatal disease. The only antidote is the milk from a queen bat, which the Doctor must find in the deep caves on Minor. With moments to spare, the Doctor carries Peri back to the Tardis, where he gives her all the milk he has collected. She recovers, but the Doctor has to regenerate to save his own life.

The figure is on sale exclusively at Forbidden Planet stores from 12th August priced £14.99 per purchase.
