Doctor Who Magazine #521 details revealed

Details for this month's issue of Doctor Who Magazine have been released.

The latest edition of the magazine features an exclusive interview with cover star and new Doctor Jodie Whittaker, who made her Doctor Who debut in last month's Christmas special Twice Upon a Time.

The actress discusses her regeneration scene, as well as working with costume designer Ray Holman on her Doctor's new look, unveiled to fans a couple of months back:
“The very first meeting we had was all very secret and incognito. As we were talking I was completely distracted by the colour of the wallpaper behind us. I told Roy I absolutely loved that colour, and that’s the colour of the trousers.”
The new issue also features Chris Chibnall's first column for the publication as showrunner, in which he looks forward to a new era for the show:
“What’s evident is Doctor Who’s extraordinary ability to embrace change while remaining exactly the same show that people love.”
As well as the usual news, reviews and features, this month's issue of Doctor Who Magazine also includes:
  • Rachel Talalay: The director of Twice Upon a Time on the filming of Peter Capaldi and Jodie Whittaker’s regeneration scene.
  • Twice Upon a Time: Exclusive set report and unseen images from the 2017 Christmas Special.
