I very much enjoyed the illustrations which are fun in this. I like a bit of humour and this book is a good addition to my "Dr Who" collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Fun, easy reading. 17 April 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This was a present for my 8yr old son. He is very pleased with it.
The images are good quality and great for a young Doctor Who fan. The only downside is that the text is written as if the Doctor himself is talking so it is fun to read but not actually that informative. Fine for my sons age but probably not that great for older fans.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Pale Imitation? 5 Mar 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I was a little disappointed by this, thinking that it might be a similar but updated version of Doctor Who Encyclopedia (New Edition) which has to be pretty much the definitive Encyclopaedia on all things in the Who-niverse - it isn't. It's nice enough of course but hardly comprehensive. A nice addition to my collection, though.

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
My son absolutely loves this book, he is an avid Doctor Who fan and this contains pictures and information on all the characters you could possibly want. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Doctor Who and wants to know more about the items he uses and the creatures and people from the series.
