Sadly, the next issue of Crime Scene (not Crime Time!) will be the last. From The Bookseller:

Crime reviewer Barry Forshaw, a regular contributor to the magazine, told The Bookseller: “Crime Scene magazine was a brave but perhaps foredoomed attempt to treat crime fiction in a glamorous, eye-catching fashion (like the same publisher’s glossy film magazines), but the fact that a cover picture of Benedict Cumberbatch would sell more issues than a similar shot of virtually any crime writer was telling. The magazine, however, was not dumbed down; its coverage of crime fiction was incisive and intelligent; my feeling is just the people would rather read their crime reviews either in newspapers or online.”
