Oh dear. The book is TINY!!! The pictures are poorly printed - almost like colour photocopies! A real shame as he obviously has some nice material. Also, why on earth was it not done in episode order? Looks really odd darting from Hartnell, to Baker, to Troughton, back to Baker and then finally to Hartnell!. Very poor value for the £25.00 plus P&P I paid for it. Would have been nice to see some mention of the Newbery police box prop as well as the wooden console room. There is a "Raymond Cusick Signature Collection" book by the same publishers being released at the end of the month. I'd love that, but I fear it may be another wasted opportunity to produce a really nice, large photo book of the great man's work on Doctor Who.

There's a lesson for me, never order 2 books in the same series without checking out one of them 1st!

I ordered this and the Ray Cusick Signature Collection book at the same time.

Predictably this one has the same problem. Between A4 and A5, it's really too small to do the photos justice. The soundbites from old interviews have been better picked and editied into the book than in the Ray Cusick collection and they really do add value to the photos e.g. he talks of how for Time Meddler research had revealed they used ox blood on the floors of huts which gave them a polished black look but for people watching it would have been far from obvious what he was trying to replicate.

The strange order of the photos jumping from Bill Hartnell to Tom Baker etc is an attempt to put the stories in historical order which is fine for the historically based tales but less successful with the futuristic ones where dates are a matter of conjecture largely.

It's slightly better than the other book but not enough to get 3 stars and really not recommended.

There is a definitive designing who book in a large format waiting to be done bringing together all the photos of various designers over the decades and not just Ray Cuisick and Barry Newbery but also less prolific designers e.g. Roger Cheveley's colour shots from The War Games and I hope the option is taken up one day.

As mentioned by another reviewer the size of the book is small - you can buy postacrds larger than these pages!

I have always been a fan of the design work of Barry Newbery and was looking forward to what additional insights this book had to offer. In short - none.

The text (what little there is) and most (if not all) of the pictures have been taken from old interviews in the Frame magazine.

The book is divided into story by story sections with one glaring omission which is ANY reference to the Season 14 police box or console room.

This book is nothing more than an exercise in how much money can be bleed from consumers by attaching the name Doctor Who and repackaging old information.

If there is anyone desperate to see the contents and doesn't want to waste the over inflated amount being charged, go onto e-bay and buy second hand copies of the relevant issues of the Frame. Not only will you get the same information but no further monies will be going into the pockets of the rip off merchants behind this book.

I look forward to future releases under this 'signature' heading with total anticipointment.

This book is richly illustrated with a wide variety of lovely rare, well printed photos from Mr Newbery's work on Doctor Who, BUT IT'S ABSOLUTELY TINY, and just doesn't do justice to the content. Anyone expecting a lavish coffee table sized publication for the price tag, is going to be sorely disappointed.

I realise that being a limited, independent publication; the price is going to be a little higher than usual, but an rrp of £24-99 is a rip-off for this title. A real shame :(
