Essential Doctor Who facts guaranteed!

It’s useful to know all the facts about scary monsters because you never know when you might run into one. Take the Time Beetle, for example. Together with a mysterious Fortune Teller, it tried to change the universe by making Donna Noble turn right instead of left…

In this week’s Doctor Who Adventures, there’s a fact file about the mystical lady and horrible beetle – so you’ll know to avoid them both if you ever take a trip to the planet Shan Shen.

There’s also the final part of our competition to win a cool Roboform head – and if you’ve missed one of the tokens, don’t worry as there will be a bonus one in the following issue.

The issue comes with a free set of special pens – one’s got a Cyberman on it and the other has the TARDIS – and there’s also a set of Ood stickers.
