Issue 1 of Plaything of Sutekh is out now

Issue 1 of Plaything of Sutekh is now available.

It includes:-
·      What Did the Sixties Do For Who? – a look at how the Troughton era of Doctor Who reflected the changes facing Britain in the late 60s
·      Frank’s Who – the lasting influence of Frank Bellamy’s Radio Times art on Doctor Who illustration.
·      Secret Who – we re-evaluate a clutch of less popular stories and find there’s more to them than meets the eye: Underworld, The Krotons and The Android Invasion. Don’t be afraid – they’re better than you think.
·      Accidental Art – while Nation and Adams were pulling in opposite directions, Ken Grieve’s innovative approach raised Destiny of the Daleks above the norm.
·      A New Direction? – a look at the evolution of Doctor Who under Steven Moffat
·      DWDVD – recent DVD releases Invasion of the Dinosaurs and The Daemons
·      Return of the King – a look at (or a listen to) Tom Baker’s return as the Doctor in Big Finish audios
… and more
