Issue 17 Contribution Details

Hello all, we'll be back next month with a brand-new Issue, kicking-off this somewhat barren year without much Doctor Who with our own brand of sunshine!

For Issue 17, we're generally on the lookout for reviews of the latest series - we're going to be reviewing the individual stories (seeing as there are so many two-parters) and we've got the following left to offer you:

Magicians Apprentice/The Witch’s Familiar

Under The Lake/Before The Flood

The Zygon Invasion/The Zygon Inversion

The Husbands of River Song


If you'd like to review a particular story, please e-mail us at fishcustardfanzine@googlemail.com asap so we can save you the slot. The stories are given on a first-come-first basis, so if your chosen story is taken by the time you e-mail, we'll offer you another if there are any left! Please keep your reviews from 500-1500 words – if you need more (or less!) please get in touch and we'll sort something out. Don't be afraid of being too critical or praiseworthy - We're just looking for passionate, constructive reviews.

Otherwise, if you'd just like to review the series as an whole, or want to give your thoughts on recent developments with Steven Moffat/Chris Chibnall and the switching of the series, please feel free to do that also! Or if you'd like to write about what you think was in the Fourth Doctor's inside pockets or why Attack of The Cybermen is the best story ever - basically, anything vaguely Doctor Who is our motto and we'll lap it up!

The deadline for all contributions is 20th February.

Cheers!

Payment methods

PayPal

To purchase the fanzine via PayPal, you can do so by sending the amount that applies to you, along with your name and address, to fishcustardfanzine@googlemail.com – please select the ‘Family and Friends’ option when sending the payment.

Please note that this doesn’t mean that you’re family, but friends is fair enough. You wouldn’t want me as your family, I would eat all your biscuits.

Fish Custard Shop (Credit/Debit Card)

You can also purchase the Issue from our shop, using your credit/debit card by clicking here
 
Please note that the payment process is undertaken by PayPal, but you don’t need to sign up to anything, just follow the steps. Also – the slightly higher price of the fanzine in the shop is to pay for the fee that PayPal likes to collect each fanzine.

Cheers!

Issue 16 - NEW Contribution Details

The time has come again...Fish Fingers and Custard Issue 16 will (hopefully) be released next month and as always, we need YOUR help to make it happen!

For this issue, we're mainly looking for reviews (positive or negative - we don't discriminate!) of the entirety of Series 8, or even just individual episodes. We have no set word count - we generally aim for about 700 or so, but we'll except anything really! For further details, please see our information page

Of course, if you'd like to write about something other than the latest series then please feel free to contribute that also. The only rule is - it has to be at least vaguely-related to Doctor Who!
Please e-mail fishcustardfanzine@googlemail.com with your articles. The deadline is 31st July.

Thanks!

Issue 16 - Contribution Details

The fanzine will be back next month - and as always, we're looking for contributions.

We'll be reviewing Series 8 as an whole, there's no set word count for these reviews as of yet, so you can just send in whatever you feel like writing (positive or negative) on the last series of Doctor Who. If you'd like to write anything else that relates to Doctor Who, this too will be gratefully accepted. If you've been to any conventions in the last 6 months or so for example, we'd love a report on one. We have a submissions guide here if you'd like to check it out for any ideas.

The e-mail address to send us your questions or stuff to is fishcustardfanzine@googlemail.com and the deadline is 6th March.

Cheers!

Fish Fingers and Custard - Issue 15 - OUT NOW!

If we were a little bit sexist, then we'll say that waiting for a new Issue of Fish Fingers and Custard is
like waiting for the right 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:

*PLEASE NOTE THIS ISSUE IS NOW SOLD OUT*

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.

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!
