The Fifth Doctor Handbook is another great read in the Doctor Who Handbook series. This book explores the era of the Fifth Doctor, the Peter Davison years from 1982-1984. Containing the familiar format of the Handbooks, this book also has a feature on the making of the 20th anniversary Doctor Who special "The Five Doctors". The Fifth Doctor's era was also the last time that the series was popular and also was the last time that the BBC still cared for their sci fi show. Authors David J. Howe and Stephen James Walker have established themselves as the best historians on Doctor Who. Published in 1995, this was the fourth volume in the Doctor Who Handbook series.
