17 of 18 people found the following review helpful By J. Rigg on 4 Oct. 2010
Format: Hardcover
Fabulously detailed, nicely balanced between fact and fiction, and beautifully artworked: this book really lives up to its name. Although aimed squarely at the ten-year-old, there is enough in there to engage younger children (my seven year old is totally absorbed in it), and there are a few bones thrown to the older Who geek too (the Target novel cover artwork for each episode in the current series being my favourite part - sadly not by Chris Achilleos, but you can't have everything ;)).

The amount of content in the book impressed me greatly. This is not just a magazine thinned out and given a hard cover as some annuals are; real thought has gone into the content, and there's a lot of it.

I'd recommend this for anyone with a child obsessed with Doctor Who, and there's enough in it to satisfy adult Who fans for the price, too.

The Brilliant Book of Doctor Who 2011

I purchased this book recently from Amazon.co.uk and I was amazed by the amount of content contained.
The Brilliant Book of Doctor Who 2011 includes interviews with cast and crew featuring the main characters and from Steven Moffat, who talks through the first year as writer for the new series. There is also a behind the scenes look at the music from composer, Murray Gold.

This book has a Hardcover, includes over 100 pages and if you love reading, it will keep you entertained for hours!

There is also an interesting guide to all 13 episodes from series 5 of Matt Smith's debut as the Doctor. Each episode guide is printed on two pages and features lots of interesting and fun facts about each episode.
The cast and crew also take you behind the scenes on the making of the show, which features even more interesting facts and interviews, and lots more. So if you like Doctor Who Confidential this book is also a must buy!

Whether you would like to find out how the Tardis is made or how the new Daleks are designed, creating the Silurians or how the programme gets put together, you can find out in this must have book for all Doctor Who fans!

If you loved the Doctor Who 2011 annual, you'll love this as this is similar. Buy this book now and you won't be disappointed!

22 of 24 people found the following review helpful By A. Foxley on 6 Oct. 2010
Format: Hardcover
'Doctor Who: The Brilliant Book 2011' is best described as a companion volume to Matt Smith's first series as TV's favourite Time Lord. Part episode-guide, part-behind the scenes tome, part-annual, it pulls together a whole range of features in such a way that it's certain to keep even the most discerning 'Who' fan happy for a while.

Each story gets its own guide and supplementary material blending the fact and fiction elements of the series, some of it by the show's writers themselves - for instance, 'The Eleventh Hour' is accompanied by a guide to Amy's home of Leadworth, 'Victory of the Daleks' includes an insight into Winston Churchill's previous encounters with the Doctor, and 'The Lodger' is supplemented by writer Gareth Roberts' guide to writing for 'Doctor Who'. And if it's new adventures you're after, there are a few short stories in there as well, one of which is penned by renowned SF author Brian Aldiss.

The regular 'Doctor Who Annual' is aimed squarely at the younger end of the children's market, and 'The Brilliant Book' is ideally suited to older children or adult fans. It's been put together with a lot of love for the source material, and is very nicely designed. Many 'Who' fans would be happy to see this in their stocking come Christmas Day.

12 of 13 people found the following review helpful By Sandiwich11 on 4 Oct. 2010
Format: Hardcover
The must have book of the year for all Who fans is finally here, and boy does it live up to it's ambitious title. It's 131 jam packed pages of all the information, behind the scenes photos, interviews, stories and tips from the last season.

The book reads like an extra special edition of Confidential with lots of snippets from the writers/directors of each the episodes, we see how aliens and costumes evolved or were designed, there's even deleted scenes for each of the episodes.

There's been a great deal of thought put into the extras, there's a fantastic map of Leadworth complete with adverts for bingo night and the summer fete for example. Rory's Twitbook entries from his stag night show another side of him and his life in Leadworth. And his altered history as an Aunton is explored, we see that he and the Pandorica are in the Bayeux Tapestry and that one of his closest friends was Sir Samuel Pepys.

My favourite though has to be Winston Churchill's Lost Diaries which chronicle his meetings with each of the doctors. Starting in 1879, when he meets Doctor 4 during a Punch and Judy show, and ending in 1945, when he meets 9 for the first time and they travel back to Ancient Rome. These letters capture the essence of each incarnation perfectly.

There is of course interviews with all the main cast of season 5, Steven Moffat and composer Murray Gold. Some of the questions are a little mundane, yet are insightful and you really do feel that they all genuinely love working together. In 'Making Doctor Who' executive producer Beth Willis breaks down exactly what is involved in getting the show together.
