 Editor’s Note

I know I keep saying that but every month has been hectic even on those days when we look at the line up of who we’ve got for interviews, what articles we’re working upon, who is going to be writing for us this month, who is going to be away for a good portion of the month.  It always surprises me just how busy we can be when the month begins with very little on the plate. 

One of the things I love about this job is that no matter how quiet the start of the month might be, you can bet that by the launch of the new Issue we’re snowed under with work because something has come up in social media, a news report, a programme or a film has come on featuring one or two of our favourite people, whatever it is, there will be something worth crowing about.  So as much as people might state that Torchwood is’s not...for us, it’s very much alive.

This month due to ‘life’ as we know it often gets in the way of progress within the website, or with whatever you have planned, some of our regular features, such as Gadgets & Gizmos, Connections And the Whoniverse Round Up are a bit quiet this month.  If you follow us on Facebook, (Toshiko) has already posted up an apology for this.  Life really got in the way of a lot of stuff this month, but we’ll be back to normal next month, be sure of that.

It’s the way it is sometimes; you often have to sacrifice something in order to achieve the necessary.  But fear not, our intrepid (Toshiko) has something up her sleeve for next month, and Gadgets will be back in its normal slot again.

This month also saw the passing of a wonderful actress who played a Doctor Who companion in Big Finish audios.  Maggie Stables passed away on 26th September after a long illness.  Our Target Zone and Big Finish reviewer Simon Mallinson has written a short tribute to her on the Mothership Page, be sure to look out for that.

This month I had the opportunity of a LIVE interview with Jâms Thomas.  (My first phone interview) it was wonderful and I wish I’d had more questions, it was like catching up with an old friend. 
This month also saw us interviewing Colum Sanson-Regan, who you may remember played David Tennant’s double in Doctor Who.  Colum has written a novel which is out next year but can be pre-ordered from Amazon – see links on article.

The story The Diamond Heist will be added next week, due to a few technical hitches and an annoying Weevil and his girlfriend who has now been given the name of Delilah.  Thank you to everyone who posted up name ideas on Twitter last week.

So, this leaves me with one final thing to say.

Welcome to Issue 18 – Kiss Kiss Bang Bang!
