DWM

I stopped buying DWM years and years ago (Started with DWW #1 and stopped
after survival...I mean...How many times can you review 'Kinda' over the
years :/ ) and last time i snuck a quick glance in WHsmith's it looks pretty
damn thin for the asking price.

Is it worth me picking up again?

As Guy says, it's bound to be down to personal taste, circumstances, etc.

However, from my perspective, although it's been through some rough patches
in the past I'd say that right now it's a mighty fine read, thanks to the
enthusiastic editorship of Clayton Hickman and some brilliant writing.
Also, it's crammed to the gills with news and features on the new series
(although the old series does get a look in too occasionally!).

IMO.

Difficult to say, mostly because I know nothing whatsoever about you, your
tastes, whether the cover price is a decent chunk of money to you...

I'll just say that I think they've done a consistently excellent job, and
they've got something to write about now...

If you're interested in the new series then DWM at the moment in a
pretty definitive guide to all of it.
The last issue had wall-to-wall new series articles and nothing on the
original (not even 'Kinda').
I've found the last four issues to be essential reading.

HELL YES! The DWM team are better than ever, they have a great cover
designer, they have great content - and the magazine may look thin, but it
is bigger than ever and "perfectly bound" as the press say...

It is definitely worth the £3.99 asking price I.M.H.O.

That's perfect bound, for nit-pickers.

Eccleston's Doctor is in the comic strip, just as it should be! The latest
edition has the conclusion of his first, three-part, story.

though Kinda is mentioned in the review for Dreamtime in this new issue
:o)

DWM is an excellent read and very informative on the new series.

I haven't read it for a while. How's the comic strip doing? Which Doctor's
in it just now?
