This Way Up 23

June 10th, 2009 (11:01 am)

A mention here that veteran Doctor Who fanzine editor John Connors has just published issue 23 of This Way Up. More accurately described as a publication in the Doctor Who fanzine tradition than a Doctor Who fanzine in the purest sense, there are articles on mid-1970s children's drama The Feathered Serpent (written by Planet of the Spiders's Tommy, John Kane, and starring Patrick Troughton, latterday Doctors star Diane Keen and Full Circle's Varsh, Richard Willis, who is also interviewed); the first few Judge Dredd strips in 2000AD; the National Theatre version of Michael Morpurgo's War Horse; series one of Being Human; and the only series it looks like we're going to get of Demons, with plausible suggestions about how the format could have been made more workable. Doctor Who content includes a review of Planet of the Dead and the DVDs of Image of the Fendahl and The Deadly Assassin.

I received the magazine through the post, but this is the last edition which will be distributed in print, as John intends to move This Way Up to PDF download only from issue 24. Issue 23 will soon be available from John's Live from Mars website, where issue 22 can currently be found.
