Question for DWM readers

About how long does it normally take you to get hold of the latest DWM?

Izzy goes audio!

Wasn't expecting this...

From DWM 403, Big Finish's main Doctor Who release in July is The Company of Friends, featuring the Eighth Doctor. It's a collection of four one-episode stories... and one of them is Izzy's Story, written by Alan Barnes, Izzy's creator, with Jemima Rooper (from "Hex" and "Lost in Austen") as Izzy. And it's set in Stockbridge, to boot.

(Oh, and for the other book fans, Benny and Fitz both get a story each: Benny's Story is by Lance Parkin, with Lisa Bowerman as Benny; Fitz's Story is by Stephen Cole, with Matt di Angelo (Deano from "Eastenders") as Fitz. The final story is Mary's Story, with Mary Shelley, the author of "Frankenstein", teaming up with the Doctor. It's written by Jonathan Morris, with Julia Cox as Mary.)

The Stockbridge Child

Just spotted this on Outpost Gallifrey, about DWM 403, out this week:

"The Doctor takes Majenta to one of his favourite places in the universe in Part One of a brand new comic strip, The Stockbridge Child by Dan McDaid with art by Mike Collins."

Two things leapt out at me:

1.)  Yay, another Stockbridge story!  (And I hadn't realized until I just read that wiki entry that Izzy was from Stockbridge!  There are huge gaps in my knowledge of the Eighth Doctor stories .... )

2.) So, this makes Majenta the first original comic strip companion since the series restarted is 2005, doesn't it?  Or am I forgetting someone?
