What's New?

The Tapezine Matrix is researched, written, designed, maintained and Copyright Alan Hayes.

Doctor Who is Copyright BBC Television. No attempt to infringe the BBC's copyrights is intended.


This timeline of tapezine production is not (yet!) exhaustive, but represents the information that The Tapezine Matrix has been able to confirm. As new information comes to light, it will be updated. Readers will notice that some issues of tapezines are not included when subsequent ones are. This is because we have not been able to confirm months of publications for all issues at present.
