Where as in the following Thursday (23rd August) the latest Doctor Who Magazine (386) is to be released. In this issue Russell T Davies talks candidly about his plans for the forthcoming Christmas Special and Series Four. "This year's Christmas Special was always going to have a one-off companion, little knowing that it would be Kylie! I like the Christmas-ness of a one-off. As you'll see, there's a whole new take – again – on what a companion can be." Russell is also set to reveal secrets concerning the return of Donna Noble into the Tardis. "She gives us the chance to be blunt about things, and be gobsmacked by things. Of course, she'll still be brave and heroic sometimes, and she'll save the Doctor's life, but equally... for example, there's one episode where they land on an alien planet, and the first thing she does is go back in the TARDIS to find the right coat!" As well as all this inside DWM, Barry Newbery, Doctor Who designer during the 60s, 70s and 80s, is given a VIP tour of Upper Boat in Cardiff, the Fact of Fiction looks at Terror of the Autons, Edward Thomas gives an in-depth insight into production design and the Doctor and Martha begin a new comic strip adventure. There is also much much more inside. This issue of DWM is out on the 23 rd August priced at £3.99
