Doctor Who Magazine  |  DWM Special 43 – Special Effects  


Special effects can transport audiences to alien planets, render familiar surroundings unrecognisable and bring terrifying monsters to life. Doctor Who has been at the forefront of such television trickery for more than 50 years. This richly illustrated publication celebrates the series’ greatest effects and meets the people who created them. From the trailblazers of the 1960s to the digital artists of today, here is the story of Doctor Who’s journeys into the impossible.

Doctor Who Magazine is the official magazine of the hugely successful BBC TV drama series Doctor Who, with each issue containing exclusive news, interviews, features and photos about the show.


The go-to source for fans since 1979, Doctor Who Magazine works closely with the makers of the show to present exclusive interviews with the stars, as well revealing behind-the-scenes secrets from all eras of the show, from 1963 to the present day.


Perfect for mature and younger readers alike, a subscription to Doctor Who Magazine is the essential companion to the TV show.
