5.0 out of 5 stars Nostalgic fan book that explains popularity and longevity phenomenon of Dr. Who..., 18 Nov 2013
This review is from: Doctor Who: The Vault (Hardcover)
"Doctor Who: The Vault" by Marcus Hearn is a book that every fan of the popular series Dr. Who would like to have.

This book is another product that was released on the occasion of its 50th anniversary from date the first episode was shown on TV.

It's not an exaggeration to say that this book is everything that someone interested in Dr. Who would like to know because it offers information and pictures about each season of the show broadcasting providing summary of the season and accompanying text that tells all about the events which marked that season.

Where the book really excels are its illustrations because a picture says more than 1000 words allowing longtime fans of the series to remember all good and bad things their favorite TV hero went through.

Although the text is of decent quality, it might be even better if the author was able to add more details, and not only speaking generally about show components and also somehow the book lacks more active participation from actors who are represented only with quotes from interviews.

Nevertheless, "Doctor Who: The Vault" is a nostalgic piece that recalls the rich history of this TV show that during its long term broadcast has become much more than a TV show.

And this book that celebrates its 50 years manages to explain precisely this popularity and longevity phenomenon, why it happened and due to that it can be recommended...
