Doctor Who Adventures magazine

Post by Admin-Emperor Dalek on Mon 19 Jun 2017 - 19:49

Via Doctor Who news:

Panni has confirmed that Doctor Who Adventures is to stop publication after the next edition released on 22 June 2017.

Subscribers to the magazine have received an email saying the Magazine is 'pausing' publication, with no indication as to when, or if, publication will resume.

Digital subscriptions will be converted to subscriptions for Doctor Who Magazine or can be canceled.

DWA began life as a fortnightly magazine in 2006, during the first wave of popular success for the revived Doctor Who, and was initially published by BBC Worldwide, the Corporation's own commercial subsidiary. In 2015 the Magazine moved to Panni, the publishers of Doctor Who Magazine.

In recent years Doctor Who Adventures has suffered a fall in circulation. From a high of 56,000 in 2010, the Magazine circulation had fallen to 10,364 in the last audited period, covering the second half of 2016.

By contrast, Doctor Who Magazine had an audited circulation of 22,523 in the same period.

Wow. It's like everything is crashing down suddenly. It's a shame that these are stopping. I remember collecting these when I was younger ,but I stopped my subscription quite a few years ago. Although I've always been trying to find Issue 337 as the free gift is a Matt Smith sonic with a green and red top. Never been able to find it, but always wanted one.

It's a shame this is stopping, but understandable, given that Doctor Who's popularity seems to be declining amongst youngsters. Also, the magazine content was becoming repetitive-Comic Part 1, Fact File, Craft, Puzzles, Poster, Comic Part 2, Story, Filler, Drawings, every single issue.

I also wonder if kids would have connected to it. For example, the idea of a text story is a good idea, but they were all about the Paternoster Gang, whose last episode was three years ago-would kids even remember them? The comic strip had become terrible as well-the Doctor's companion is a talking, flying horse ffs. A shame to see it decline in such a way, as it used to be really good in the old days.

The art work isn't great ..how much is it? £3.50? Expensive for what it is...
It should be like a junior DWM. Never mind the endless "know your monster" ..

It's £3.99 now. Also, another thing, the bImonthly schedule made it incredibly dated. They only just got to Hell Bent in the episode guide. I doubt many kids remember Clara, never mind the episodes she was in.

Dwm is £5.99 now, but bear in mind DWA was less regular and had free toys as well.

Do we know what the free gift with the final issue will be? Probably a sonic screwdriver, but do we know what it actually is?

Hope it's a bumper issue with multiple gifts. I really want a sonic just for nostalgia.

They said a mystery gift, so probably a selection of unsold gifts from previous issues.
