First appearance of the Fifth Doctor.Cover price of 45p.Issue somewhat notorious among Doctor Who fans for misspelling the incoming lead actor's name on the cover--despite the fact that DWM was, as the cover proudly announces, an award-winning British publication and Davison had a fairly prominent career in British television already. Ahhh, well: it's not his real last name, anyway.
This mistake was later acknowledged, in issue #381. Having announced in issue #379 that the third series of Doctor Who (2005) would begin on 24 April 2007—when in fact it started on 31 April 2007—magazine editor Clayton Hickman began an essay of apology by saying, "From the magazine that proudly proclaimed, 'Peter Davidson is the Doctor . . ."
The error was finally corrected on the cover of issue #389, when a cover featuring the mini-episode "Time Crash" read, properly, "Peter Davison is the Doctor!"
