SFX 's latest one-off special issue, on sale now, is devoted to all things Doctor Who . If you haven't already picked up a copy, you can read a full list of contents here - and don't forget, it's also available to download for your iPad , if you've got one!

Amongst the contents is a two-page picture puzzle, within which are represented, in cryptic pictorial form, the titles of 65 Doctor Who stories (from both the old series and the new one). For example: see that whopping great dragon blasting out a jet of flame? That's the Sylvester McCoy story "Dragonfire". Get the idea?

It was drawn by regular SFX artist Paul Cemmick , and we thought Paul's work was so good that it deserved a wider audience.
