The Doctor has been splashed all over American newsstands in recent months, with Doctor Who earning the front of Entertainment Weekly and winning TV Guide’s coveted Fan Favorites cover. Well, within the span of less than a year, the series has returned to the cover of Entertainment Weekly just in time for Season 7, Part 2′s premiere on Saturday, March 30 on BBC AMERICA. And there are not one but two collectible covers that both celebrate the show’s 50 years on the air. (The first pairs Matt Smith with new companion Jenna-Louise Coleman and a dastardly Dalek, and the second has a sonic screwdriver-wielding Matt ducking in front of a looming Cyberman.)
Check them out below.
EW.com offers up what people can expect in their story: “We visited the show on location in Wales, grilled executive producer Steven Moffat about the upcoming episodes and the 50th anniversary special, which is being broadcast this fall, and luncheoned in Manhattan with [Matt] Smith. In our Who package you’ll also find a breakdown of all 11 Doctors and, perhaps best of all, an essay by Peter Jackson in which the Lord of the Rings director recounts his Who-love and announces his price for directing an episode. You’ll think the magazine is, well, bigger on the inside…”
The new issue hits stands March 22.
Tell us, Whovians: what’s your reaction to Doctor Who landing the cover of EW for the second time?
EDIT: And check out what’s going on on the cover of The Times magazine this weekend, in Britain…
