Vortex Issue 97

15 March 2017

If you're currently enjoying March's releases - why not have a look at Vortex?

This month's Vortex (the 97th edition of a run going back to 2009!) goes behind-the-scenes on Doctor Who - Doom Coalition Series 4, illustrating its exclusive interviews with never-before-seen pictures as we look at how this epic run of Eighth Doctor stories comes to a close. With many people letting us know how much they've enjoyed this release, here's a great chance to learn a little more about it. As Vortex editor Kenny Smith observes:

"With no new Doctor Who on television last year, we were given eight episodes of Doom Coalition, to follow on from the four we had at the end of 2015, giving the feel of a new season of adventures, akin to the Bad Wolf, Torchwood and Mr Saxon story threads from the early years of the revived Doctor Who. The stories were linked, but we didn't quite know how, until late on. It's been an epic ride through time and space."

"This month has seen the release of Doom Coalition's fourth and final set, and the reaction I've seen - online and from friends - has been amazingly positive. But sometimes, it's easy to forget just how much work goes into making not just one story, but a whole inter-linked series in 16 parts. This month's Vortex goes behind the scenes of the latest release, as producer David Richardson and director/script editor Ken Bentley explain how they've brought the fourth and final part of their magnus opus to life. We also talk to the writers, John Dorney and Matt Fitton, as well as Mark Bonnar the man who brings the villain, the Eleven, to terrifying life. And I'm not saying that he's good because he used to live down the road from where I'm sitting right now!

"It's not just about Doom Coalition this month, though, as the second series of the Charlotte Pollard spin-off gets a full preview, while the third monthly run of Torchwood features too - including an exclusive chat with PC Andy himself, as Tom Price interrupts walking his dog to say hello to Vortex!"

While stocks last, Vortex is sent out with all physical orders, but you can always download the PDF to read on computers and mobile devices. This month also covers the month's Listeners title Doctor Who - The Companion Chronicles: The Mahogany Murderers (available until April for £2.99 on Download) and our Jack Gerson audiobooks The Fetch and The Evil Thereof. There's even an article about Big Finish at the 2017 BBC Audio Drama Awards.
