This review is from: The Discontinuity Guide (Paperback)
All opinions are valid, but I must strongly disagree with the review below. My copy of The Discontinuity Guide, from the original printing in 1995, is so well-thumbed that it now resembles the Dead Sea Scrolls. It would not have been so often referred to if it were in any way a "boring" piece of work. It is most definitely not "drival (sic)", but a well constructed and genuinely useful reference guide. The Discontinuity Guide breaks down each Doctor Who televison story into several sub-headings, including Technobabble, Continuity, Fashion Victims, Goofs, and Dialogue Triumphs, then concludes with a short (sometimes very short!) opinion on the story. The book has a nicely irreverent and polarised angle on Doctor Who; refreshing for a reference book, where the content is often very dry. One may or may not agree with the opinions expressed by the authors, but there is something here to get one's teeth into regardless of that. Essential. Really, it is.
