The War Doctor: Infernal Devices - Cover & Details

Big Finish have issued the cover and details for three new Doctor Who audio plays featuring the War Doctor:

LEGION OF THE LOST - by John Dorney
In a time of war, every means of victory must be explored. In the Time War, the unthinkable must be thought, and neither side can afford to be squeamish about their methods.

When the destruction of an obscene weapon leads to the Time Lord once known as the Doctor uncovering a secret Gallifreyan initiative, he cannot believe what is being considered.

Should victory be sought at any cost? Or are there worse possibilities than losing to the Daleks..?

A THING OF GUILE - by Phil Mulryne
The Daleks are developing a secret weapon on Asteroid Theta 12. It is imperative that their plans are uncovered.

Cardinal Ollistra has her hands full studying the range of ancient and mysterious armaments the universe has to offer, but she makes it a personal mission to investigate the Dalek project.

On this dangerous assignment, there is one particular Time Lord she wants at her side – and he will be accompanying her whether he wants to or not.

THE NEVERWHERE - by Matt Fitton
On an isolated world ravaged by battle, time itself has become a weapon, laying waste to all who live and die there. Arms and technology are in a state of flux - and it seems that everlasting war is their only option.

The arrival of one battered Type Forty TARDIS inside this nightmare offers hope to the combatants trapped within.

But when he discovers the truth, the horrors of the Neverwhen will shock even the War Doctor...

Doctor Who: The War Doctor - Infernal Devices is on sale in February 2016 priced £20.00 on both CD and digital download.

Doctor Who Magazine - Issue 494

Panini have issued the cover and details of the latest edition of Doctor Who magazine:

THE BUMPER 100-PAGE FESTIVE EDITION OF DOCTOR WHO MAGAZINE IS OUT NOW!
Doctor Who magazine takes a look forward to this year’s Doctor Who Christmas special - The Husbands of River Song - and also features an exclusive interview with the Doctor himself, Peter Capaldi…

We asked Peter how is the Doctor going to cope with meeting River Song again?

"There’s a very different dynamic," Peter replies. "As you’ll see, she doesn’t know it’s him at first. She can’t be convinced that it is, so she’s sort of not interested in him! He gets a taste of his own medicine, from her. She treats him very coldly, and flirts with a lot of other people in front of him. He doesn’t get any flirting, which I think upsets him. Eventually - finally! - she recognises him. But then another element comes into play and… well, you’ll have to wait and see. But it’s fun…"
