Doctor Who Adventures is a magazine based on the British science fiction television programme Doctor Who. It was published by Immediate Media Company and aimed at 6- to 13-year-olds, a different demographic from the Doctor Who Magazine readership - but with the April 2015 issue, and a reboot issue Number 1 the magazine passed to being published by Panini Comics. Initially published every fortnight, from 2008 it was published weekly. Then in May 2013 it went back to being published every fortnight and subscriptions were discontinued due to profit loss. From 2014 it went to being published monthly, changing to bi-monthly in late 2016.


Doctor Who Adventures was first published as a fortnightly magazine on 5 April 2006, featuring fact files, puzzles, makes, news guides and more. The regular price for issues 1–33 was £1.99, rising to £2.10 from issue 34. Issue 45, a special "long-read" edition, was £2.99. From issue 47 the magazine became weekly. Doctor Who Adventures is the alternative to Doctor Who Magazine and is aimed at a younger audience.


From issues 1–12 the heading had the Doctor Who logo in a transparent white with the word Adventures in writing filled with the colors from the official Doctor Who logo. Since then, the official Doctor Who logo was used, with the word Adventures being in various colors each issue. From April 2010 the design changed to fit around the newest Doctor (Matt Smith) and the 2010 series occupying it, and featured the new logo. The design then changed a third time from April 2011 to fit around the 2011 Series. The design was changed a fourth time from March 2013 to fit around the 2013 Series.
