Data Extract: Issues 1 - 100 (Credit: The Doctor Who Club of Australia)The Doctor Who Club of Australia (DWCA) have announced the first 100 issues of the club fanzine, Data Extract, will be released as a collected volume:

In 1980 a publishing legend was born with the release of the first newsletter for the Doctor Who Club of Australia. Subsequently editor Dallas Jones named it Data Extract and under his stewardship the publication grew from a two page newsletter into a fully-fledged fanzine, with articles, interviews, art and more besides.

Now for the first time since their original releases, the first 100 issues of this Doctor Who fanzine have been reprinted and collected in one hardcover volume. Relive the heady days of the past from Tom Baker’s departure to the end of the classic era and into the Wilderness Years. It’s all here, presented exactly as it was.

This collection features interviews with Jon Pertwee, Sylvester McCoy, John Freeman and Jeremy Bentham. Experience Doctor Who history through the eyes of Australian fandom with the first 100 issues of Data Extract, Down Under’s premiere fanzine and the flagship publication of the DWCA.

The Doctor Who Fanzine Collection: Data Extract Issues 1 to 100 is available to purchase through Lulu.

The Doctor is in the house! The RiffTrax house, that is!

As the various incarnations of the Doctor join forces, they learn they are in the Death Zone on their home world of Gallifrey, fighting Daleks, Cybermen, Yeti and a devious Time Lord Traitor who is using the Doctor and his companions to discover the ancient secrets of Rassilon, the first and most powerful ruler of Gallifrey.

Join Mike, Kevin and Bill as they join the Five Doctors for one of the most thrilling Doctor Who adventures ever!
