In 1980 a publishing legend was born with the release of the first newsletter for the Doctor Who Club of Australia. Editor Dallas Jones named it Data Extract and under his stewardship the publication grew from a two page newsletter into a fully fledged fanzine, with articles, interviews, art and more besides.
Now for the first time since their original releases, the first 100 issues of this Doctor Who fanzine have been reprinted and collected in one hardcover volume. Relive the heady days of the past from Tom Baker’s departure to the end of the classic era and into the Wilderness Years. It’s all here, presented exactly as it was.
This collection features interviews with Jon Pertwee, Sylvester McCoy, John Freeman and Jeremy Bentham. Experience Doctor Who history through the eyes of Australian fandom with the first 100 issues of Data Extract, Down Under’s premiere fanzine and the flagship publication of the DWCA.
This issue features interviews with writers Robert Smith? and Gary Russell, plus the Eleanor saga continues with the short story Touch Paper.
