Doctor Who Magazine (abbreviated as DWM) is a magazine devoted to the long-running British science fiction television series Doctor Who. Its current editor is Marcus Hearn, who took over from the magazine’s longest-serving editor, Tom Spilsbury, in July 2017. It is currently recognised by Guinness World Records as the longest running TV tie-in magazine.

Officially licensed by the BBC, the magazine began life as Doctor Who Weekly in 1979, published by the UK arm of Marvel Comics. The first issue was released on Thursday 11 October with a cover date of 17 October and priced 12p.

The magazine moved from weekly to monthly publication with issue 44 in September 1980, becoming Doctor Who Monthly with a cover price of 30p. Styled on the cover as ‘Doctor Who – A Marvel Monthly’ the tagline was not part of the name, but simply a descriptor which appeared on many of Marvel UK’s monthly titles at that point. The copyright notice continued describing the publication as ‘Doctor Who Weekly’ until issue 48. The cover title changed to Doctor Who Monthly with issue 61. The title changed to The Official Doctor Who Magazine with issue 85 in February 1984. It became The Doctor Who Magazine with issue 99 in April 1985, and simply Doctor Who Magazine with issue 107 in December 1985. The magazine has remained under that title ever since, although an exception was made for issue 397 in June 2008 when the cover only featured the words Bad Wolf following transmission of the Doctor Who episode “Turn Left” on Saturday 21 June. In 1990 the magazine started appearing once every four weeks (13 times a year). Despite the BBC discontinuing production of Doctor Who in 1989, the magazine continued to be published, providing new adventures in the form of comics. The television programme was revived in 2005, providing a new generation of fans which the magazine was seeking to attract.

The format has changed over the years, but the news, letters, reviews, and comic strip have all been present consistently since the early 1980s.
