This was a weekly (monthy?) publication in NZ akin to The Radio Times.
Searching for an entirely different subject I came across this site. One poster mentions that there was a Dr. Who special. I know no more than that. I am currently searching for an archive of issues. Maybe the Dr. Who issue is online?
"J.Newman Thursday, 22 March 2018 Oh my gosh these are fantastic! This is the best magazine ever (its content was right across the spectrum, my grandmother always referred to it as her bible) and every single cover is iconic. I had about 20 of the thumping big fat ones I'd collected from the 70s and 80s (including the Dr Who one and the 50 years one and 25 years of TV one, up there above). Sadly all these treasures now lost. What a shame there is no place online to see every single cover like there are for many magazines (perhaps better known worldwide). Your collection here is a nice representation. Thanks!"

Further down another poster says:
"J.Newman Monday, 16 April 2018 Ha ha you are right about the more bland design... I think the magazine has been slowly shuffling away from its entertainment roots (very seldom seen in the covers these days) and towards the current affairs gap that Time and Newsweek and the Bulletin cover in other countries.
I marvel that some of those earlier covers would have taken so long to set up. The 25 years of Dr Who one (1988) must have taken the best part of a week... you could literally see where the artist had sliced the photographs making up the collage into squares the exact same size and shape as on the graph paper behind it.
