Doctor Who 50th Anniversary: The Big Issue Special Edition

As the 50th Anniversary draws ever closer - only 5 days! - it seems that everybody is celebrating, now including the latest edition of street magazine The Big Issue, which has a cover feature and various articles celebrating the 50th Anniversary. Editor Paul McNamee said:
We kick off our run of five bumper editions leading up to Christmas with a Doctor Who special. As the anniversary of that show approaches, with a number of Doctors together on screen and fan-mania growing, we have a collection of fantastic features.
The features include:
  • An interview with Matt Smith detailing working on screen with David Tennant
  • A piece from Who-obsessive, screenwriter, and man of letters Mark Gatiss
  • Pieces from Karen Gillan and Eddie Izzard plus a panel of experts explaining what deeply-held psychological fear each Who monster plays to and why we can't escape them
  • A big Doctor Who competition with prizes including a TARDIS teapot
The magazine will be available from vendors everywhere across Britain - except for a pocket around Manchester and the north-west, which is served by The Big Issue In The North.

The Big Issue is written by professional journalists and helps homeless and vulnerably-housed people by giving them the chance to earn their own money. Vendors buy the magazine at a reduced rate and sell it for the cover price, keeping the difference. Please note that the magazine should only be bought from badged vendors.
