The Doctor Who Appreciation Society has published the latest edition of its features-based magazine 'TARDIS'.
 
The title was re-launched in 2020 and so far has helped to raise funds for 'Mermaids' (supporting transgender children and their families) and 'MIND' (which helps adults with mental health issues).
