5.0 out of 5 stars Get the Hardcover! One of two "must haves" for the 50th Anniversary, 31 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Doctor Who: The Doctor - His Lives and Times (Dr Who) (Hardcover)
First, I want to point out that fans in North America should consider buying *this* version of the book, through Amazon UK. In the USA, it will not be released until Jan 7, 2014, and only as a softcover. This is a treasure well worth having in hardback. Along with "Doctor Who: The Vault: Treasures from the First 50 Years", "The Doctor - His Lives and Times" is one of the two "must have" books commemorating the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who.

"The Doctor - His Lives and Times" is a like graphical narrative of the series as seen by Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. In other words, previously unseen fictional details of events, objects and characters from the history of the show, such as a glimpse into the 500 Year Diary, UNIT memos, newspaper and magazine articles, and so much more that I wouldn't want to spoil.

Also interspersed throughout are hundreds of quotes and insights from the actors, production crew and others through the years. In addition, the book includes so many photos I've never seen, despite decades of reading Doctor Who Magazine (since it was Weekly!) and uncountable books and tie-ins.

Casually paging through it is a delight. Reading closely is like finding deleted scenes on a DVD. Don't hesitate, get it now, or gift it this Christmas.
