Special Issue #26 • ships from Jun 5 2003
News-stand Price UK £4.99 / US $9.99

We study The Immortals, the ideas that keep coming back for more, the show, the concepts and the characters that just won't die.

With these features…

Buffy The Vampire Slayer
• How has Joss Whedon succeeded in giving new life to the undead? We look at the role of Buffy and its spin-off, Angel, in reconfiguring ancient ideas into a newer, hipper form.

Trek tragedyStar Trek
• The show that's outlived all others, now into its fourth live-action spin-off. But what has kept it strong over the years, and is it refusing to move with the times?

Enduring DoctorDoctor Who
• While its 26-year run remains unsurpassed, no new episodes have appeared for seven years. We attempt to pin down the reasons why, even now, countless people won't let it go.

Immortal ScotsmanHighlander
• The best show to lay claim to the word 'Immortal'? This series managed to drag itself past a series of poorly-received movies and into a long-running Fantasy show.

Gene Roddenberry
• The creator of Star Trek continues to have the Midas touch when it comes to TV shows. Yet Andromeda and Earth: Final Conflict may not have turned out as he'd originally envisaged, and their roots may have been in an all-too-familiar series.

• Sometimes a concept can be just one character. Over the years, in comics, on film and on TV, Superman has evolved into various different versions. We chart his progress from glorified cop to romantic lead.

Plus a whole host of interviews, including…

Stargate SG-1
• Star Richard Dean Anderson slips on his producers hat and joins fellow execs Robert C Cooper, Michael Greenburg and Brad Wright in discussing the next phase of the Stargate project.

• Creator and executive producer JJ Abrams looks back over the two seasons so far and discusses the many changes that have taken place over the second year.

• Ben Browder looks back on the last days of the series and that ending, relates the joys of having his wife on set, and explains why his grandmother thought he was a whore.

The Simpsons
• Executive producer Al Jean recently popped over to the UK in celebration of the show's 300th episode, and we were there to discuss the incredible success story of the world's longest-running cartoon.

The Goodies
• Bill Oddie, Tim Brooke-Taylor and Graeme Garden look at the influence of the Seventies, and run through their extensive career credits so far.

• An episode guide to the entire series!
