Doctor Who Magazine has released details about its latest issue, out this week.
Issue #513 of the magazine will feature previews of the next four episodes of the currently-airing tenth series of Doctor Who – The Lie of the Land, The Empress of Mars, The Eaters of Light and World Enough and Time.
As well as interviews with writers Toby Whithouse (The Lie of the Land) and Rona Munro (The Eaters of Light), the magazine also features an interview with Mark Gatiss (The Empress of Mars), who talks about bringing back the Ice Warriors for this series:
“The Cybermen are my favourites and yet I’ve never written for them, but the Ice Warriors are among my favourites: a great monster. I always loved the pride of them, their Viking qualities and the voice. Even though they’ve had so few appearances, they loom so large. So I’d always wanted to bring them back, because I thought I could do something with them. You can just do a bit of worldbuilding, because there’s so much to play with…”
