This issue's featured article available on-line is:

  • Devil's Advocate - some shows or series get a raw deal and are perceived forever after as rubbish. Others just become misunderstood or unrecognised for what they truly were, and are labelled with the tripe. For those who have tarnished reputations, we begin an irregular series where the alternative view can be put forward for a maligned piece of the past. This time it's the only Doctor Who spin-off - K9 and Company.
