Hi and welcome to inferno-fiction.co.uk
 
Well, finally issue NINETEEN of Inferno Fiction is complete! Thank you all for your patience as we finally bring you the completed issue. Thwart with problems from the word go; interent issues, site provider issues and the latest, puppy issues! Our new addition to the household managed to chew through the cable of my laptop charger resulting in the loss of power to the laptop and as a result was unable to meet my last deadline!

I hope you all enjoy what's on offer with Madam Vastra's story continuing in Julie Kay's In Her Absence, the concluding act of Sean Bassett's bold and inventive Oh My Giddy Aunt!: The Doctor Who Musical (yes, we know you've been singing along to the songs as well!) as well as contributions from Michael Baxter, Jack Lawrence, Nick Wheeler, Nathan Mullins and a new comer to the worlds of Inferno Fiction, Matthew Senkowski. Meg MacDonald's Whistle Stop featuring the 9th Doctor is featured on the cover of this issue...a very good read too.

Now that this issue is complete I'll be looking for your contributions to the 20th issue of Inferno Fiction, a landmark edition to celebrate the online fiction fanzine's continued success. At the moment there is no deadline for this issue as I dont want to rush to complete this one but suffice to say that it will contain more fiction than previous issues and we have a few surprises instore too.

So, if you feel the urge to write something then please forward your submissions to infernofiction@gmail.com  All contributions will be considered for publication. If you're a budding artist too then let us see your work, again send them to our email address.
Please note that if you are submitting a multi-part piece of fiction then please ensure that you send us the complete work as we have had issues where parts have been submitted, published but not completed and therefore had to withdraw them the site.

InPrint are celebrating their 4th year online. Checkout their latest offering by following the link below.
 
 

Finally like to thank everyone who's contributed to this issue,  Michael Baxter, Matthew Senkowski, Julie Kay, Jack Lawrence, Sean Bassett, Nick Wheeler, Meg MacDonald and Nathan Mullins.

Former showrunner Russell T Davies talks Sex Drugs and Rock & Roll in the latest edition of Doctor Who Magazine.

The man who brought Doctor Who back to TV in 2005 returns with an audio adaptation of his very first Doctor Who adventure, the 1996 novel Damaged Goods. Davies tells DWM how the story influenced his reinvention of the TV series

"It kind of shows the promise that I didn't know was there with Doctor Who. Because Doctor Who – the 'classic' Doctor Who that I grew up loving – didn't, famously, blow up the world. Invasions and monsters would tend to limit themselves to the gardens of UNIT, or a country house. It's interesting, that sequence in Damaged Goods with the train blowing up, which then led to me destroying the entire city – that kind of liberated me, and then I carried that into Doctor Who. So I was thinking 'Right, you can have a spaceship crash into Big Ben, you can do anything you like.."

Also inside this issue:

Doctor Who Magazine Special:
The Art of Doctor Who

The characters and scenarios from Doctor Who have been inspiring artists since 1963. The latest special edition of Doctor Who Magazine celebrates the best of their contributions to both the programme and the vast range of licensed products that rely on their skill.

“This is how the story of Doctor Who unfolded in the eyes of the artists who interpreted, shaped and represented the show,” says editor Marcus Hearn. “In fact, the story begins before the first episode was even transmitted – we have articles examining the creation of the Doctor Who logo and the filming of the original title sequence.”

This 100-page Special is packed full of stunning reproductions of original artwork from the Dalek annuals, the Doctor Who annuals, Doctor Who Weekly, the DVD range, the Radio Times, Target Books, TV Century 21, the VHS releases and more.

Other highlights include:
Articles covering the history of graphic design and illustration in Doctor Who, from the early 1960s to the present day.

Award-winning graphic designer Bernard Lodge explains how he created the series’ first four title sequences.

Concept artists Peter McKinstry and Matt Savage share their portfolios from 21st-century Doctor Who.

Interviews with Target Books artists Chris Achilleos, Jeff Cummins, Bill Donohoe, Roy Knipe, Tony Manero, Andrew Skilleter and Nick Spender.

Interviews with comics artists including Mike Collins, Martin Geraghty, Dave Gibbons, Richard Piers Rayner, John Ridgway, Nick Roche, John Ross, Adrian Salmon, Lee Sullivan and Alice Zhang.

FISH FINGERS AND CUSTARD issue 15

If we were a little bit sexist, then we'll say that waiting for a new Issue of Fish Fingers and Custard is woman, who will turn up fashionably late. So, just imagine that woman turns up 3 months late? You're not bothered, because she's great, she's different. Beautiful, funny, masterful, if you will. What a woman.  Well, we're nothing like that, apart from being 3 months late, we contain the same-old love and spelling mistakes that you've come to expect.

Anyway, here are the details of how to buy the new issue, which has got nothing to do with Series 8, despite the rubbish I've just written above:
For a finely-printed, but adequately put-together paper copy of the fanzine, the prices are as follows:

UK - £2
Rest of the World - £4.50

To order a copy, please send the payment that applies to you, via PayPal to fishcustardfanzine@googlemail.com (please mark your payment as a 'gift' so we get the full fee from PayPal so we can buy more knocked-off paper from the local stationers).  Alternatively, you can buy one from our shop, prices inflated by 25p or so because of PayPal fees. The swines.

We have also re-printed the first 4 Issues of the fanzine to celebrate 4 years of us taking the Fanzine World like a mild breeze. Each re-printed Issue will come with a unique code number, slipped in somewhere, so nobody tries to rip people off when we've made it and old mags are selling for £20k a pop.Yeah.
Sadly, we can only offer this deal to people who reside in the UK at the moment.
First 4 Issues: £7

Please use any of the above payment methods to order.

Issue 15 is also available as a download from here.

FINALLY! We're open for submissions for Issue 16, which we hope to release in early 2015. We'll be looking at Series 8, as well as the upcoming Christmas Special. If you'd like to send in any reviews, thoughts or rants about Series 8 or any 2014 episode, please e-mail us at fishcustardfanzine@googlemail.com

If you despise new Doctor Who - you can send us anything that vaguely relates to the classic series too!

THE SECRET HISTORY
by Eddie Robson


The TARDIS brings the Doctor, Steven and Vicki to the Italian city of Ravenna in the year 540 – besieged by the army of the celebrated Byzantine general Belisarius. Caught up in the fighting, Steven ends up on a boat bound for Constantinople, the heart of the Roman Empire.

Rescuing Steven, however, is the least of the Doctor's problems – because he shouldn't be mixed up in this particular adventure at all. Someone has sabotaged his own personal timeline, putting him in the place of his First incarnation... but who, and why? The truth is about to be revealed – but at what cost to all of the Doctors, and to the whole future history of the planet Earth?

Starring Peter Davison as The Doctor, Maureen O'Brien as Vicki
and Peter Purves as Steven Taylor
 
available from BIG FINISH

DOCTOR WHO: THE HISTORY COLLECTION
 
HUMAN NATURE
by Paul Cornell
 
Hulton College in Norfolk is a school dedicated to producing military officers. With the First World War about to start, the boys of the school will soon be on the front line. But no one expects a war – not even Dr John Smith, the college’s new house master…

The Doctor’s friend Benny is enjoying her holiday in the same town. But then she meets a future version of the Doctor, and things start to get dangerous very quickly. With the Doctor she knows gone, and only a suffragette and an elderly rake for company, can Benny fight off a vicious alien attack? And will Dr Smith be able to save the day?

An adventure set in Britain on the eve of the First World War, featuring the Seventh Doctor as played by Sylvester McCoy and his companion Bernice Summerfield.
This book was the basis for the Tenth Doctor television story Human Nature / The Family of Blood starring David Tennant
