Doctor Who Magazine 499

Category: Doctor Who Magazine

Take a look back at the history of Doctor Who Book Cover Art - in DWM 499!

 

As the art of the Target books is celebrated in a new exhibition, DWM tracks down the men who painted Doctor Who…

 

DWM speaks to Chris Achilleos, the first regular artist on the range, establishing a new visual style for Doctor Who…

 

“I didn’t need direction – I knew how to do a cover,” he explains today. “I was always very aware that a book cover needs to be attractive – almost interactive, in a way – so that you’re drawn to pick it up in a shop. I still think they work as good punchy covers.”

 

Target book fan and modern-day Doctor Who writer Mark Gatiss has much affection for the artwork: “The Three Doctors was my first and perhaps still my favourite,” he says warmly. “The incredibly evocative orange and green luridness of Omega’s deadly fingers, the Doctors themselves in grave monochrome. I still get a Proustian rush from seeing these images.”

Lethbridge-Stewart: The Schizoid Earth Audio Reading

schizoid earth cd.jpg ? In Stock £18.99

Category: Lethbridge-Stewart Novels and Audios

Lethbridge-Stewart was supposed to be in the mountains of the east. Things didn't quite go according to plan.

 

On the eve of war, something appeared in the sky; a presence that blotted out the moon. Now it has returned, and no battle plan can survive first contact with this enemy.

 

Plagued by nightmares of being trapped in a past that never happened, Lethbridge-Stewart must unravel the mystery of a man ten years out of his time; a man who cannot possibly still exist.

 

Why do the ghosts of fallen soldiers still fight long-forgotten battles against living men? What is the secret of the rural English town of Deepdene? Lethbridge-Stewart has good reason to doubt his own sanity, but is he suffering illness or injury, or is something more sinister going on

Catherine Schell - A Constant Alien

catherine schell.jpg ? In Stock £19.99

Category: Autobiography

Catherine Schell has lived a life more dramatic and colourful than any of her many acting roles.

 

Her story sweeps from her birth during an allied bombing raid in Budapest, to life under post-war Russian occupation, escape and life as a refugee in Austria, a strict convent school life in America, and on to Germany where she becomes an actress.

 

Whilst international fame would follow through roles in the James Bond and Pink Panther franchises, as well as the iconic role of Maya in popular sci-fi series Space: 1999, the story off camera is all together more human and real. An abusive husband, her father’s surrender to Alzheimer’s, her brother’s paranoid schizophrenia, and a dominant and passionate mother, all play their part in her tale.

 

Told engagingly and with warmth, there are highs and lows, laughter and tears, and lessons learnt as a survivor… in a life where she has been A Constant Alien.

Peter Vaughan - Once a Villain

peter vaughan.jpg ? In Stock £19.99

Category: Autobiography

“The action was a series of fights in the ring and I played the boxing second. I had thirty-four entrances and exits, very few lines and a sponge.”

Throughout a career in theatre, television and film spanning over 75 years, actor Peter Vaughan has kept in mind a piece of advice given to him by his father: Always see the ludicrous side of things. This may come as a surprise to those who associate him mainly with menacing, even brutal characters, in everything from Sam Peckinpah’s Straw Dogs to Terry Gilliam’s Brazil. Many will have fond memories of his portrayal of ‘genial’ Harry Grout in the classic sitcom Porridge, which is ironic since the character only appeared in three episodes. Such was the indelible mark Peter’s performance left on the viewers’ imagination. Still working in his nineties, he has recently gained a whole new generation of fans with his role as Aemon Targaryen in the hugely popular fantasy drama series Game of Thrones.

 

This autobiography takes us back to describe his upbringing in 1920s Shropshire, the stormy relationship between his parents, his wartime exploits and early career in rep before going on to find fame on stage and screen alongside such notable figures as Celia Johnson, Tallulah Bankhead, Tony Curtis, Frank Sinatra, Tony Hancock and many more. Through it all, that awareness of the ludicrous has perhaps helped to keep Peter sane and certainly contributed to the enormous enjoyment of the work which shines through in this honest and revealing account of his life.
