Doctor Who Magazine has released details about its latest issue, out this week.
As well as previews of the next four episodes of the new series of Doctor Who – Knock Knock, Oxygen, Extremis and The Pyramid at the End of the World – the magazine also features an exclusive interview with Knock Knock guest star David Suchet.
The actor, best known for his long-running role as Belgian detective Poirot, reveals his reaction to being offered a part in this week’s episode of Doctor Who:
“I suppose I so became so associated with Poirot, but when they invited me to Doctor Who, I said yes before I’d even read the script!”
“Because it’s Doctor Who! It’s the most iconic series, even more so than Poirot. To have that opportunity was the greatest privilege.”
As well as the above and the usual news, reviews and features, this month’s edition of Doctor Who Magazine also includes:
- Interviews With The Writers: We chat to Frank Cottrell-Boyce, the writer of Smile, and Sarah Dollard, the writer of Thin Ice.
- Meet The Director: Lawrence Gough, the director of The Pilot and Smile talks to DWM about his work on the new series.
- The Soul Garden: Bill Potts makes her comic strip début in the first part of the new comic adventure by Scott Gray, with art by Martin Geraghty.
- Monoid Mania: This issue’s Fact of Fiction delves into the 1966 story The Ark, which took the Doctor, Steven and Dodo into the far future.
