Exclusive Interview with Terrance Dicks in The Terrible Zodin #10 (Spring 2011)

Fanfare please as The Terrible Zodin hits double digits in brand new issue 10.

Thanks to all our contributors (writers and artists) and to you dear readers for all your support over the last 2 years. It's thanks to you we've hit 10 issues and work has already started on issue 11.

We are delighted to bring you the first part of our exclusive interview with script writer Terrance Dicks who talks about his long association with the show and finally reveals the true secret of just who The Terrible Zodin is! Also in this issue we interview actor Peter Miles (Nyder in Genesis of the Daleks) and Grant Bull the new editor of Celestial Toyroom.

TTZ10 is an experiment in monochrome as we take the Second Doctor's swansong The War Games as this issues inspiration. From the American Civil War to Season 6(b) with Pancho Villa along the way plus our usual series of paper dolls focuses this time on Zoe.

Also in this issue we look at A Chritmas Carol, Running Through Corridors, the latest Eighth Doctor audios and Faction Paradox. Popular misconceptions of classic series companions are overturned and an unnanounced guest turns up at the SFX Weekender.

If that weren't enough all your favourite regular features are here: The Web Planet is the latest victim of No! Not The Mind Probe!, Susie Who grapples with The Deadly Assassin and the Back2theWhoture team watch The Pandorica Opens.

We really hope you enjoy this issue and we'd love to hear what you think. We really value your feedback and your support helps ensure the zine grows and continues.

Don't forget we're doing a meet up in London on Saturday 9th April and would love to see you there.

The Terrible Zodin Doctor Who Meet Up - 9th April 2011

Due to the various tube engineering works going on the weekend of the 9th April 2011 we've relocated our Doctor Who Meet Up to The Mayflower in Rotherhithe, London, SE16 4NF.

The nearest station is Rotherhithe on London Overground (formerly the East London Line). Turn left out the station and left again down to the end of Railway Avenue. Once you hit the river, the Mayflower is just on your left and it's two minutes walk from the station.

Best bet is to get on to the Jubilee Line and change at Canada Water or on the Victoria Line and change at Highbury & Islington.

Forecast for the weekend is sunny and warm (well as warm as early April can get). There's a jetty out on the the river with plenty of tables and there's room inside in case the weather takes a turn for the worse.

We thought what with TTZ being a transatlantic zine The Mayflower was somewhate appropriate.

Jamie will provide his mobile number to anyone who is coming along. Please DM him @TerribleZodin on Twitter or send him a message on Facebook.

Look forward to seeing you all there and hope you all enjoy issue 10 of The Terrible Zodin which should be out.... very soon!
