Apologies for the lack of updates to this site, this is, as some of you may know, due to a recent bereavement. Sadly I lost my partner Dean back in May of this year which came as a sudden shock, not only to myself but also to my family and the many friends Dean and I had.
I am hoping to focus on getting issue TWENTY together before the end of the year. It was Dean who encouraged me to put Inferno Fiction on line and therefore issue TWENTY will be dedicated to him.
I would Just like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their support and kindness shown throughout this difficult time.

Doctor Who Magazine looks ahead to the return of one of Doctor Who's most popular monsters, in the forthcoming two-part adventure The Zygon Invasion & The Zygon Inversion – which also sees the return of fan-favourite Osgood

Episode writer Peter Harness tells the Magazine:

"There was a certain amount of fan outrage when Death in Heaven saw the apparent death of Osgood. Ingrid Oliver’s character was an instant hit on her first appearance in The Day of the Doctor. While there may not have been questions asked in Parliament about her death, there were definitely some furious tweets on the subject! But now she’s back..."

And, of course, the Zygons are back too.

"One thing I really had in my head when I was writing it was the Invasion of the Body Snatchers, and I think that's why it originally had the title Invasion of the Zygons. I thought that if aliens wanted to fight us and they were fighting us from a position of weakness, they would look at how we fight wars. The Zygons are not only stealing our faces, but they’re stealing the ways in which we fight each other nowadays"
