The latest issue of the BBC's Radio Times listings magazine goes on sale across the UK today, publishing on a Saturday rather than a Tuesday as the magazine's release schedule increases on the run-up to Christmas. The edition, covering the 6th to 12th of December, is currently previewed on the Radio Times website.
It features an extensive preview of the forthcoming Christmas special, "The Next Doctor", including a front cover picture of David Tennant and guest star David Morrissey, with a fold-out section including the adversaries they will face in the episode. Including multiple covers, this is the 23rd time the series has been granted the honour of the front page of the magazine since its return in 2005; the 8th in 2008 alone, and the 45th in the show's 45-year history.
As well as previewing "The Next Doctor" and other Christmas programming, the issue also looks back at 2008, with celebrities including Catherine Tate.
