The News

With the new 9th Doctor comic run from Titan quickly approaching a few more variant covers have popped up. They have the same mix of photographic and comic art style as we’ve seen with the 10th, 11th and 12th Doctor comics. You can check them out here and as you can see they look great. Can’t wait for these.

Horror Channel coming to Freeview right now! As you listen to this podcast on launch day (Friday 13th March) you should be able to tune into the Horror Channel on channel Freeview 70. This is good news for Who fans as it means that you’ll be able to enjoy loads of classic Who which they put out all the time.

    I know what you mean about the blu rays and their availability. I have only recently replaced all my dvd sets with blu rays after selling the others on to a trade in shop. Can’t help but think they will be replaced by a different medium in the future again but I am happy with the way the look and sound with the blu rays.
