Format: Hardcover
Dorling Kingsley have produced a variety of Character Encyclopedias for various franchises over the last few years. Marvel, DC, Pixar, Star Wars...so it's only fitting that Doctor Who receives the same treatment, especially with this year (2013) being the 50th Anniversary celebration of the show/franchise.

Like previous Character Encyclopedias, Dorling Kingsley have put together a splendid book for readers. Doctor Who fans can enjoy a concise, easily digestible guide that's well laid-out, has great pictures & use of text and a very good structure to it.

Jason Loborik, Annabel Gibson & Moray Laing are the team of writers who have compiled all the entries in this encyclopedia, and on the whole, they've produced a fine piece of work, condensing the whole cast of the Doctor Who Universe into a nice hardback for fans, one that's light & easy to handle.

The A-Z doesn't cover EVERY-SINGLE-CHARACTER in the show's 50-year-history, but it does a great job in covering the most prominent players from the classic eras and those of Russell T Davies & Steven Moffat. (N.B. This Character Encyclopedia covers the Doctor's history from the show's very beginning to "The Snowmen" (the 2012 Christmas Special), so there's no updated information on Clara (as revealed at the end of Series 7) or things like the revamped Ice Warriors or Whispermen.)

All (to-date) 11 incarnations of the Doctor, his greatest/deadliest enemies (Daleks, Cybermen, Master, Davros, Weeping Angels, Silence etc), companions/friends (Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, Sarah-Jane Smith, Rose Tyler, Donna Noble, Captain Jack Harkness, Amy Pond, Rory Williams, River Song etc) and miscellaneous characters are all profiled/detailed in separate one-page spreads that feature excellent photos, stills & text-boxes.

This book is an excellent resource for prehaps whovians that are new to the show or those who havent seen the classics. My first doctor happened to be the 7th (Sylvester McCoy) but still this book is packed with interesting facts about all 11 of the doctors and every other character to present (not including the current series monsters and characters). It helps particularly the newbies understand some of the context of the show and what things were and are.

Definitely a recommended read.

This book is a great detailed guide of Britain's longest running science fiction series in the form of Doctors, Companions and aliens. An impressive book with good photos and images. If you are new to the series it is a great informative insight to the series.

Not perhaps the cheapest book, but we found it well worth the money for our ten year old. Lots to browse and look through, good pictures and info. Nothing you couldn't find scouring the Internet, but its nice to have all the info in one place

Great source of doctor who info. A bag dedicated to each doctor who character past and present with just the important information. Comes in handy if you have forgotten who that's characters was.

Although that I have visited Worcester City Centre with my parents today I decided to visit a local book store which was Whsmiths. However the product gave me an idea because I looked at in the store today and I think that the quality of the book is excellent. But the value was £12.99 so I decided not to purchase it today. I even saw the wonderful pictures such as the all eleven doctors from William Hartnell Patrick Troughton Jon Pertwee Tom Baker Peter Davison Colin Baker Sylvester McCoy Paul McGann Christopher Eccleston David Tennant and Matt Smith. Of course were many old and modern villains in the shows such as the Prisoner Zero from the 'Eleventh Hour' in 2010 the Alliance from 'The Pandorica Opens and the Big Bang' the Mighty Jagrafess from 'The Long Game' the 2006 style of the Cybermen from 'The Rise of the Cybermen and the Age of Steel' the 2005 Russell T Davies style of the Daleks the brutal menace of Davros from 'The Stolen Earth and Journey's End' in series four Solomon the trader in 'Dinosaurs on a Spaceship' as played by York actor David Bradley and the veteran actor of Richard E Grant as the character of Doctor Simeon who appeared in the 2012 Christmas special 'The Snowmen' and in the finale of 'The Name of the Doctor' in May 2013.Read more ›

This was a gift for a 7 year old so I can't speak personally but I am told this is really cool and is inspiring reading practice, whichis an unexpected bonus.
