The latest issue of the DWCA’s member-exclusive magazine, Data Extract, has been released. And it’s a rather special issue, answering everything you wanted to know about archaeology in Doctor Who.
Want to know how people reacted to the return of the Doctor’s wife in The Husbands of River Song? Check out A Little Perspective to hear the thoughts of three different fans. What about how River is faring in her new spin-off series from Big Finish Productions? Flick to the audio reviews section of Forum Square.
Or perhaps you’re a fan of River’s predecessor, Bernice Summerfield. In our interview with writer Gary Russell, we hear all about how Gary was given the task of bringing Benny and the Twelfth Doctor together in his new book ‘Big Bang Generation’, set right here in Australia!
And if that’s not enough for you, our feature article covers pretty much the entire history of archaeology in Doctor Who – from The Tomb of the Cybermen, to The Stones of Blood, to Battlefield and beyond. It’s your comprehensive guide to the who, what, where and when of the Doctor and co.’s most memorable digs – and it’s written by a real archaeologist!
If you’re a DWCA member, your issue should be arriving some time this week. If you’re not a member, why not join now? You’ll get a free subscription to Data Extract as part of your membership, as well as a whole host of other benefits.
On Sunday 20 March, the DWCA Shop will be attending the Penrith Collectormania toy fair. Said to be the largest in NSW, if not Australia, the toy fair contains collectables covering a range of different fandoms, hobbies, sports and more!
As well as having the latest DVDs, audio dramas and collectables available on the day, the Shop will also be launching the latest issue of our member-exclusive magazine, Data Extract. The mag is jam-packed with content you won’t find anywhere else, including a recount of the Doctor Who Festival by co-host Rob Lloyd and interviews with ’60s costume designer Alexandra Tynan and geek pop artist Meri Amber (this issue’s cover girl).
If you’re planning on attending Collectormania and would like to pick up your copy of Data Extract before it is mailed out to everyone else, email email@example.com with your name and member number. We’ll put aside a copy of the magazine for you for collection on the day, and Meri Amber herself will be there to sign issues!
Please only contact us if you know you’re going to attend, otherwise postage of your issue could be delayed.
The Fair will be held at the Penrith Panthers Pavilion on Mulgoa Road, just down from the Penrith Panthers Club and right next to Aqua Golf. For more information, visit our event page.
The latest issue of the DWCA’s e-zine, The Nethersphere, has been released.
The issue covers all the latest news surrounding Doctor Who, upcoming merchandise releases, reviews, event recounts, and even a cryptic crossword!
The Nethersphere is delivered to the inboxes of DWCA members every three months, offset every 6 weeks by our print magazine, Data Extract. If you would like to sign up to receive these two publications as well as a host of other benefits, you can do so right now.
If you are already a member and you have not received the issue (make sure you check your Junk folder!), please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Look Who’s Talking – Part One is on tomorrow, and it will be the last event to feature the DWCA Shop for 2015. So if you want to do some Christmas shopping for all your Whovian friends, now’s the time!
The final release of the classic DVD range – the infinitely quotable The Underwater Menace – will be available for purchase on the day, just a few days after its Australian release. You can even get it signed by the designer of the Fish People (as well as some obscure monsters called the Cybermen) herself, Alexandra Tynan.
Our second guest, Gary Russell, has his name to a wide range of novels and audio dramas as both a writer and director. There’ll be plenty of releases available for him to sign on the day, but all in limited numbers, so make sure you get in quick!
Meri Amber will also have copies of her Doctor Who-themed album ‘Pop Goes the TARDIS’ on sale.
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg! The shop will feature some much-anticipated new releases from Big Finish, including UNIT: Extinction, serving as the audio debut for Kate Stewart and Osgood; Torchwood: The Conspiracy, featuring the immortal Captain Jack Harkness; and Doom Coalition 1, which sees the Eighth Doctor gain both a new companion and a new enemy!
Finally, fill up your Christmas stocking with toys and collectables for fans young and old. Whether your preference is for action figures, sonic screwdrivers or slippers, we’ve got the goods. You can even pick up a Weeping Angel to put on your Christmas tree!
All these items and more will be available at Look Who’s Talking – Part One on Sunday 6 December at Burwood Library, Sydney. Picking them up at the event is the best way to guarantee you’ll have them in time for Christmas, so make sure you swing by!
Still wondering whether to attend Look Who’s Talking – Part One this Sunday? Well, everyone who comes through the door on the day has a chance to win our mystery door prize, while attending DWCA members will be the first to receive the latest issue of Data Extract magazine!
Data Extract #229 is full of exclusive content you won’t find anywhere else. The issue includes two pieces of fan fiction (one featuring the DWCA’s own original companion!), a guide to the re-released novels of the Wilderness Years, and an interview with one of the creators of sci-fi audio series Night Terrace.
While DE is free to members, entry into our mystery door prize is open to all who attend the event. But what is this prize, I hear you ask? You’re just going to have to wait to find out what’s inside – but we can give you a hint of what it looks like…
