DWM gets down with the kids in the latest issue of the magazine...

"Doctor Who was completely different to what I expected! I thought it would be really boring and un-modern (if you get what I mean). I also thought that it'd be stupid - not scary at all - oh, and old fashioned. But I was wrong. "These are the words I use to describe it now, after I'vge seen it: Spooky; Freaky; Weird; Cool; Amazing; Scary (especially for my little brother); Bright; Funny-ish; and lots more - but I've forgotten them... Wow!" Taslima (Age 12)

DWM visits Patcham High School in Sussex to find out what the kids thought of the new series of Doctor Who. Did they take to the Ninth Doctor and Rose? Did they find the Daleks scary? And what about that oh-so-cute Space Pig?

Also in this issue - Doctor Who production designer Edward Thomas takes an episode-by-episode look at the last series; a peek at how the new Doctor Who exhibition on Brighton Pier was created; and a chat with authors Justin Richards, Gareth Roberts and Steve Lyons about their latest Doctor Who novels published by BBC Books. Meanwhile, in the third part of The Cruel Sea, the new comic strip adventure written by TV writer Robert Shearman, things take a turn for the surreal. Just what is real and what is imaginary?

Plus there's a chat with the Doctor Who: Confidential producers; a sneak preview of BBC Audio's Doctor Who At the BBC - Volume 3; and for one issue only, script editor Helen Raynor takes over Production Notes.

Packed with all the latest news exclusives in Gallifrey Guardian, more Who-watching from The Time Team, and all the latest previews and reviews, Doctor Who Magazine 361 goes on sale on Thursday 15 September, priced ú3.99.
