A Task Worthy of A Time Lord,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ahistory: An Unauthorised History of the Doctor Who Universe (Paperback)
This book tries to do the impossible - and to an extent succeeds, trying to tie together and reconcile all the different strands of Doctor Who - the TV series, the various novels issued down the years, the Big Finish audio dramas and the comic strips (mainly those published in the Doctor Who Magazine).
The big asset with this tome is that as new bits of Who lore emerge the authors aren't afraid of amending their viewpoint/theories from the previous editions of this book. And as to that bug-bear of the UNIT era dating that's kept as separate section within the series chronology - i.e. anytime between the year of broadcast (1968 to 1975) and being set from mid 70's to the mid 80's.
A worthwhile investment for anyone who's interested in the wonderful world of Who like myself who's been with the show since the 60's, and for anyone who comes to it more recent times via David Tennant and Matt Smith. Seriously recommended!
