4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting essays but..., 7 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The essays themselves were interesting and brought back many memories from a childhood spent watching a number of different Doctors and their companions. The book is let down, however, by the continuing misuse of the American term 'season' to refer to a British 'series'. A little thing, perhaps, but it was increasingly annoying and showed a lack of regard to the original source material that was unbecoming.

The choice of 'season' to mean 'series' in the case of classic Who could have been forgiven if the use had been explained. As a child, I don't recall anyone talking about this series or that series of Doctor Who, as it was more accurately a serial than series (unlike new Who), and even today the DVD releases fail to portion things into series or seasons. So to have writers continually talk about season seven or eighteen or five was extremely confusing, until you reached a point in the essay that identified a Doctor and, more importantly, a companion.

All that confusion could have been avoided with the inclusion of a list of Doctors, story titles and how they were going to be referred to in the book, but instead we were left to guess. It was sloppy.
