Bite sized guide,
This review is from: Doctor Who: Essential Guide to 50 Years of Doctor Who (Hardcover)
I was purchased this as a present and I really like it. It covers all the Doctors adventures in a really nice bite sized format, and while this may not appeal to some who like to go into great detail, for the casual fan this provides enough detail to be interesting and not so much detail it becomes a chore to read.
The book give a background to each incarnation of the Doctor, discussing the character, the actor, the companions, the tech and the story lines.
I especially liked the the plot lines and character summaries as it's amazing to see how many of the aliens featured in the modern show have featured before. The book is well written and presented and they've made it something accessible to fans of all ages.
It's a good book and makes for a nice little present for fans of the show.
