I meant to post this a couple weeks ago, but with series 31 wrapping up and with all of our live shows reviewing it all at the time, I never had a chance.

Even in this day of podcasts and other new media, the art of the fanzine is still around. As evidence is the launch of a new one covering Doctor Who, Fish FIngers and Custard.

In the premiere issue, it features a review of The Eleventh Hour, an article about the infamous 'PBS hijacking incident', Invasion Convention review, 'Cracks', an original 11th Doctor story, 'The Doctor in Wonderland', "It Could Have Been a Spin-off", a column by actor Harry Sedgewick, and what else?

Oh yes, an interview with some bloke named, Louis Trapani. There's much more, so check it out.
