Doesn't do what it is supposed to do
on 3 July 2013
Strewth, it's labourious writing on a kindle!
I bought this book because I wanted a guide to the doctor who epiodes. And by guide, I mean what happened in each episode which I assumed this book was. Unfortunately, this book is just collection of facts with a cast list, a sentence about the episode and a longer personal opinion from the author.
Each episode review follows the same format: about 50% of the review is the names of actorsproducers etc. 5% details of the story. 35% facts e.g. William Hartnell was sick for two episodes. Then 10% of the authors personal view. Not good enough for me.
Here is a typical entry for an episodes story: 'The daleks chase the Tardis through time and space...'
And that's it! Less meat than mayfly, it could be most dalek episodes!
As a pocketguide, I wasn't expecting miracles, but I was expecting to get a basic understandjng of each episode. I'm sorry but this is too basic and unless you want a list of actors and episode release dates, look elsewhere.
