Feigning normality since 1973

TSV 39

Filed in: Doctor Who, TSV Online.

Issue 39 of TSV is now online. This issue was published in 1994. The cover, as you can see right, featured the current New Adventures TARDIS crew of Ace, the Doctor and Bernice Summerfield. It'd be cool if Benny could turn up in the new series someday...

There's a bunch of post-TV series articles in there, with an article by Kate Orman on her book The Left-Handed Hummingbird, an introduction to the Missing Adventures (updated to note which books were put in which gaps), a speculative article on how the show might have gone had it not been cancelled, and more reviews of the then-current New Adventure series. The first Missing Adventures review pops up in issue 40.

There's an exploration of the violence in Vengeance on Varos, a history of the planet Mars (no less!) and one of the contributions I made back then which I don't cringe at now: an article on how the various references to Atlantis fit together.

I also managed to stump Jon Preddle with a question in Doctor's Dilemma, which I'm quite proud of. :)

I'd also love to see Benny in the new series but don't think it would happen :-( I wonder how they'd do it if they did though...

Maybe the Doctor could pop along to one of her book launches. :)

Could do Benny (oo-er) just by having her as a character, but not refer to her relationship with the Doctor. The fans would know, but wouldn't get in the way of viewers.
