DWM 432

The front of the 432nd issue of Doctor Who Magazine was adorned with a great picture of Matt, Karen and Arthur sporting red noses with a wonderful bold headline: Cosmic Relief. In his editorial, Tom Spilsbury tells us about the frantic changes made to the cover. Originally, a great big picture of the Master would have been on the front (see the inside cover for this) as part of this magazine includes a feature about the Master. This magazine, in my opinion, is a brilliant issue and well worth £4.50.
