10 YEARS AGO

It’s February 2007, and DWM 379’s readers are loving the new spin-offs…

On this month…

SPIN-OFFS GALORE!

■ In the early months of 2007, DWM readers were not only looking forward to the new series of Doctor Who, Doctor Who Confidential and Totally Doctor Who, but also to more episodes of Torchwood and The Sarah Jane Adventures. New Year’s Day had seen the broadcast of both the final two episodes of Torchwood Series One and the feature-length first episode of SJA, and DWM readers were overwhelming positive above both spin-off shows on the letters page, DWMail. ‘A great plot which could scare any kid drinking pop at the time!’ enthused Charlie Hocklin of Invasion of the Bane, while Steve Talbot wrote, ‘The child actors were all terrifyingly good, no precocious child prodigy manics here.’ Meanwhile, David Crisp said of Torchwood, ‘Well-written, well-directed, with excellent acting, this is a landmark series for the twenty-first century,’ and Peter Wilcock wrote of the final scenes, ‘It was a great piece of drama that reminded us, rather brilliantly that Torchwood is very much a part of Doctor Who.’
