BBC Press Release: Doctor Who Adventures (8th January 2010)

The BBC Press Office has released information on the new-look Doctor Who Adventures magazine:

Creature from the PitDoctor Who Adventures magazine has launched an innovative lenticular cover, featuring a morph between the Tenth Doctor, played by David Tennant, and eleventh doctor, played by Matt Smith. Following on from The End of Time episodes of Doctor Who at Christmas and New Year, Doctor Who Adventures magazine brings the regeneration to life on its cover, with a specially commissioned shot of Matt Smith.

Issue 148 is set to be a collector's issue and the original design concept is the first time a BBC Magazines' children's cover has featured the lenticular technology. The process is created by lenticular printing, a multi-step process consisting of creating a new image from at least two existing images, and combining it with a lenticular lens. According to editor of Doctor Who Adventures, Moray Laing: "Our collector's issue magazine is a fitting tribute to David Tennant's final episode and the start of a new series of adventures with Matt Smith as the Eleventh Doctor. We are really proud to have produced such an innovative cover to celebrate the regeneration and believe it will have real impact on the newsstand."
