World Record For Doctor Who Magazine

It's been 31 years in the making, but now The Guinness World Records Association have given an award to Doctor Who Magazine, naming them as the 'Longest Running Magazine Based on a Television Series'. The award was first announced in April, but was yesterday officially presented to the magazines editorial team.

The award was accepted on behalf of the whole team by the original editor, Dez Skinn and the current editor Tom Spilsbury at the magazines headquarters in Tunbridge Wells, Kent.

The award reads:
Guinness World Records Certificate: The longest-running TV tie-in is Doctor Who Magazine (UK), which has run for 31 years. It launched as Doctor Who Weekly on 11 October 1979, and went monthly at issue 44.
