How good was the demo of Cyberpunk 2077? As someone who remembers the tabletop RpG Cyberpunk 2020 being released, i can’t wait to go hands-on with the game... Rants
Lord Of The Rings tv show starring a young Aragorn? Did no one learn from the Hobbit films? it’ll be like watching my favourite pub burn down.
There are few things in sci-fi as exciting as the arrival of a new Doctor. You know roughly what you’re getting, of course – time travel, monsters, a lot of running – but a new face on the Time Lord means a new twist on an old formula.
The latest regeneration is arguably the most eagerly anticipated since the show returned in 2005, as Jodie Whittaker becomes the first woman to take on TV’s most iconic role. And let’s face it, it’s about time, because now that Time Lords changing gender is enshrined in Doctor Who canon, it was becoming increasingly implausible every time the Doctor morphed into another white man.
As befits the biggest sci-fi event of the year, we bagged an exclusive interview (p36) with showrunner Chris Chibnall and two of the Thirteenth Doctor’s new friends (that’s companions in old money). We’ll be catching up with Jodie Whittaker next issue.
If you like the sound of that you’ll love the A Quiz Through Space And Time book included with this issue, packed with 1000 questions from infinite dimensions – as well as a double-sided poster featuring Aquaman and our guide to the Complete History of the Universe.
Elsewhere, we speak to the director of Venom (p52), find out how Star Wars is going anime in Resistance (p58) and take a trip to TV’s Arrowverse (p78). To borrow a phrase from the Doctor, it’s “brilliant!” Richard Edwards, Editor @RichDEdwards
