BBC Magazines extends its pre-teen portfolio this week, as new fortnightly title Doctor Who Adventures, aimed at 6 - 12 year olds, launches on 05.04.06 to coincide with the second series of the programme this spring.
Doctor Who Adventures will be a must-read for all young fans of the popular TV series.
Filled with authentic content, the first issue includes an original comic strip, a fantastic fact file about the tenth Doctor and Rose’s top ten scariest moments. Plus loads of behind-the-scenes news, interviews, puzzles, competitions and brilliant posters.
Each magazine will be covermounted with an exclusive premium quality, collectable gift.
Priced at £1.99, the first issue will feature a Doctor Who themed 6-piece stationery set and readers will also have the chance to win a life-size dalek.
To ensure the new title is easily recognisable, a number of independent stores have been issued with point of sale merchandise including shelf wobblers, shelfbarkers and posters.
The magazine has also achieved strong listings in all of the key retailers, with the launch issue being heavily promoted.
Moray Laing, Assistant Editor, Doctor Who Adventures said: "Doctor Who Adventures is big, bright and bold, like the series itself. There's something exciting on every page for young Doctor Who fans, who will be immersed in their very own time travel adventure.
"In the first issue there is a cut-out-and-keep guide to the Daleks and fans can make their own Slitheen mask, perfect for scaring friends!"
