In the very first Doctor Who Adventures of 2008 (on sale 3 January 2008 in the UK), we review our favourite bits of the Christmas special Voyage of the Damned.
With its highest ratings since Doctor Who returned in 2005, Voyage of the Damned proved a massive success. At its peak, 13.8 million viewers tuned in to watch the Doctor battle his way around the Titanic and save Earth from destruction with Kylie Minogue as Astrid Peth by his side.
The Doctor Who Adventures inbox has already been flooded with emails from readers saying how much they loved it:
“I thought it was awesome!” Alex Tierney, aged 8.
“I would give it 20/20!” Faiaz Alam Aninda
“It was just brilliant!” Conner Bradshaw

To celebrate, issue 46 has a fantastic fact file on the terror of the Titanic, Max Capricorn, a huge Voyage of the Damned poster and a brilliant Bannakaffalatta mask for readers to make.
