The annual has Matt Smith and the TARDIS on the front cover and all the Doctors on the back cover, which is a nice touch. When you open the annual, you are confronted by the Vortex - nice - but when you look closely, there are two little cartoon figures drawn in. Bizarre, you might think. The contents page is illustrated with a montage of foes, past and present, along with Matt Smith and the TARDIS. And if you look closely, there's another cartoon drawing in the suction cup of the Dalek. What? We are then given an illustrated article, showing the eleven Doctors and a couple of black and white Hartnell photographs, explaining '50 Years of Doctor Who'! Don't get too excited - the article only lasts two pages and there's another pesky cartoon character poking its head round from behind the TARDIS! Yes, it does become irritating. After 'The Doctor's Diary', which introduces Clara, we finally learn the reason behind the cartoon characters and are asked to find fifty of the little 'horrors' hiding throughout the annual. Something to look forward to throughout the annual - great!
References are made to the classic Doctor Who series but the annual is geared to the current season with two illustrated stories and a 2-page text story which took just over a few minutes to read.Read more ›
Its a must in fact my 47 year old partner looked at it and said "I'm really quite jealous that she's getting this as a chistmas present" - you see he's a big Dr Who fan too :-)
I'm not sure why this should be - perhaps Amazon received an unexpectedly large number of orders on this item and so had to rush out to their local Argos in order to fulfil them. Whatever the reason, though, I'll take Amazon's hint and have a look in Argos first for my next purchase.
This was great fun; I can imagine any youngster keen on Doctor Who would have a great time collecting and reading and re-reading these Annuals. There are photo stories, comics, games, informational articles (for example, on the Tardis),excerpts from the Doctor’s diary. Loads of fun.
