Feigning normality since 1973

TSV 51

Filed in: Doctor Who, TSV Online.

TSV 51 is now online! What can I say about it? It's green, which matches the NZDWFC site colours nicely. It contains Zero Minus Thirty-Three Days, a prequel to the BBC book The Devil Goblins from Neptune, written by the authors. There's a long interview with Gary Russell, ex-editor of Doctor Who Magazine and author, in which the dirt is spilled. There's more fiction, including a crossover; another adventure with the Karkus; Alien Nation, covering monsters Terry Nation; and a detailed biography of the Dalek creator.

This is the point when Virgin lost their license, so there's reviews for the last few New and Missing Adventures, and the first two BBC books - The Eight Doctors and the aforementioned The Devil Goblins of Neptune.

Also in this issue is In Bloom, one of my favourite TSV comic strips, which features the seventh Doctor and Benny during the Dalek occupation of Earth (although no Daleks appear, in keeping with New Adventures tradition). One page illustrates a scene from one of the books, but I don't remember which one... [No Future, thanks Morgue!]

There's nothing from me in this issue, not even a letter. Oh well, read it anyway. :)

Edit: Morgue has written about the making of 'In Bloom'.

What can *I* say about it? I just wish TSV was this good now. Because it really isn't.

The page is from No Future, oddly enough. I have an unreasoning affection for that book :-)
