5.0 out of 5 stars Yowzha! 24 May 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is absolutely brilliant! All the info on the Doctor you ever wanted to know! Accompanied by lovely black and white illustrations. Great for all Doctor Who geeks out there. Impossible to put down. Covers all the Doctors right up to Matt Smith. Perfect celebration of the longest running Si-FI TV series.

I have been anticipating the release of this book for almost a year - before I even knew what it was, in fact, due to teasing Twitter mentions by its illustrator Ben Morris. (Whose unique stylised work many Doctor Who fans will know from the pages of Doctor Who Magazine/Doctor Who Adventures and last year's charity Doctor Who book Behind the Sofa: Celebrity Memories of Doctor Who.)
I'm pleased to say the finished product does not disappoint. It never pretends to be more than it is - a fun, witty collection of assorted Doctor Who minutiae. It is very well presented; a nice, solid hardback volume in similar size to hardback novels, with a striking yet simple full colour cover (by Lee Binding) and then in black-and-white throughout. The illustrations (as previously mentioned, from Ben Morris) are in a simple, striking and effective black and white caricature style that sits well with the sometimes-less-than-serious (but certainly never comedic) content. Ben has a unique graphic style that remains both faithful to its sometimes complex subject matter and yet clear and dynamic to look at.

The authors, Cavan Scott and Mark Wright, have worked hard to compile a huge amount of information from both sides of Doctor Who. The fictional adventures of our favourite Time Lord are represented just as well as the behind-the-scenes production info. Expect timelines, actor biographies, character summaries, episode listings, fact compilations and quotations.
It's possible that the style of the book may not be to everyone's taste. There's a lot of detail for the casual fan to absorb, yet not as much real in-depth knowledge that the hard-core fan would expect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Like a Pear's Cyclopaedia for Whovians 29 Dec 2013
By Tony Jones VINE VOICE
I bought this as a Christmas present to myself and am very glad I did. There are plenty of facts but it is easy to browse or dip into without having to wade through copious amounts of text.

The only criticism is that inevitably it is out of date - roll on the 60th anniversary update!

5.0 out of 5 stars Encyclopedia Of Doctor Who 7 Nov 2013
By Timelord007 TOP 500 REVIEWER
This is a very well researched book by Big Finish writer's Cavan Scott & Mark Wright who have written many Big Finish audio adventures including the Forge Trilogy.

This book has a wealth of information & is more or less an A-Z Encyclopedia of Doctor Who.

The attention to detail in this book is simply stunning & covers everything from episodes, Sonic Screwdrivers, The Tardis, Enemies & Allies & much much more.....

The authors certainly haven't skimped on anything, Giving well detailed synopsis on all facts & facets of Doctor Who.

Every possible fact has been unearthed & researched barring the return of the recent missing episodes which I'm sure a update of this book will surface in the near future.

This book is a hardback cover & if your new to Doctor Who then this is an essential purchase & even seasoned fan's may find out some trivia that they previously didn't know about.

A highly Recommended book & a testament to the exellent attention to detail from researchers of Cavan Scott & Mark Wright.

4.0 out of 5 stars Allons-y! 31 May 2013
By Andy
If you're a fan of 'Doctor Who', whether it's the classic series or the new rebooted series, I would recommend picking up this book, it covers it all and then some! Reading more like a digest of everything Whovian from the last 50 years, this hardcover book has it all.

From the very first episode, and all the way up until the 2012 Christmas special, the 384 pages are bursting with the facts and figures from the entire series. It's all presented very well in a hardback volume, with a cover illustrated by Lee Binding and accompanied by black and white interior illustrations by Ben Morris. 'Who-ology' details the timelines, actor biographies, character summaries, episode listings, fact compilations and quotations. There's a lot of detail for the casual fan to take in, yet not as much that a hard-core fan might expect, but it's still fun to flick through the pages and get lost in the mythology of the Doctor.

For the price, you can pick this up for less than a tenner, this is a book that fans of Doctor Who will enjoy. A perfect celebration of the longest running science fiction TV series.
