Bloody Brilliant!

Great and good

The content is great and has been getting better every year since I started reading it in 1982. I used to have to wait weeks for an issue in the U.S. and although it was good reading the news aspects were old. Then came this digital version, releasing issues on the same day in the U.S. as the UK. Incredible! (My joy was actually printed in the letter column of one of the first issues). The quality of the image has improved since I wrote what you see below. OMG it crashes twice a month! Compared to getting it months later it's no big deal. Reopen and it's right where I left off.

It's sad you don't get the posters and other goodies that are included with the printed magazine (although you often get scans of them). But remember the price for the download edition is about 1/3 less if you subscribe (or even buy in shops months later) to the actual magazine.

The reason it is not five stars is because the quality of the reproduction is readable but not very good. Actually sometimes pictures and comics when blown up slightly can become a blur. I subscribe to Entertainment Weekly and I can blow it up all I want with the picture remaining crystal clear. I will subscribe to this until I die but I will not change my rating to 5 until the app works and appears better. (No links either like other magazines have). Still I love it!!!!

The Best Source for Doctor Who News and Features

I used to subscribe to the print edition of Doctor Who Magazine. But it's in England and I'm in the U.S., and that's expensive. This app is the perfect solution to bringing the exceptional content of this great magazine to Whovians around the world. Make sure to say OK to push notifications so you know right when the new issue is ready to download.
