Apologies for the lack of updates to this site, this is, as some of you may know, due to a recent bereavement. Sadly I lost my partner Dean back in May of this year which came as a sudden shock, not only to myself but also to my family and the many friends Dean and I had.
I am hoping to focus on getting issue TWENTY together before the end of the year. It was Dean who encouraged me to put Inferno Fiction on line and therefore issue TWENTY will be dedicated to him.
I would Just like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their support and kindness shown throughout this difficult time.
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!

The latest edition of Doctor Who Magazine is out now, and has an exclusive preview of the first four episodes of the new series, The Magician's Apprentice & The Witch's Familiar and Under the Lake & Before the Flood.

The latter two episodes from Toby Whithouse's first script for Peter Capaldi's Doctor, and also his first two-part Doctor Who story; it hinges on time travel – "fairly mind-bending time travel at that". On whether he came to regret taking the "wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey" route, he said:

"Oh never, I loved it! I've always wanted to do a timey-wimey episode. In fact, it was going to be a lot more timey-wimey, but we lost some of that before we started filming. It's enormous fun to deposit something in a script, then have the reason for it happen later.

I think (Peter)'s the most 'alien' Doctor we've had since the show came back. Even though the essentials of the character remain the same – his heroism, his brilliance, his enthusiasm – he feels to me like much more of an outsider than Chris Eccleston or David Tennant or Matt Smith were. He's more strange and otherwordly. That's really interesting to play with."

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!

It seems that the printed form of the fanzine is almost dead with many choosing the option of downloading instead. If you have a fanzine and you wish for it to be featured here on INFERNO FICTION then please forward the details to infernofiction@gmail.com

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?
