Top WhoNews site Kasterborous.com have being working on a not so secret project for some considerable time. The two years of planning has come to an end and the fruits of their labour at K Towers means a brand new magazine is launched today.
Like an overstuffed Whovian doughnut the first issue is jam packed with two interviews with Matt Smith and an interview with Karen Gillian.
However don't think this is another Doctor Who magazine centred around the TV. This is a magazine for fans which concentrates on those people with Doctor Who close to their hearts. In other words you and me, those people who kept the show going for 50 years. The "Not-We" need not apply ;)
