A visit to Who Towers

We've just got back from Cardiff ("we" being Ian and Nick) from a chat with the Grand Overlord of Doctor Who. He gave us a couple of hours of interview time (periodically interrupted by texts and phone calls about casting, script tweaks and what not). And boy, did we learn some interesting stuff...

But you'll have to wait to find out about it. Sorry! About the only thing we're willing to share right now is that Russell had the latest SFX in his bathroom reading pile (honestly, it's great for browsing through for a few minutes if your bowels are acting a bit sluggish). And yes, before you ask, we did ask him why there aren't more alien planets.

Why is Martha's relationship with the Doctor very different from his one with Rose? Which episode of the season is the scariest one of the new series yet? What's the truth behind those Britney Spears rumours? All these questions and more will be answered in SFX issue 155, which goes on sale on Wednesday 14 March, perfectly timed to whet your appetite for the show's return...
