This book is absolutely brilliant! All the info on the Doctor you ever wanted to know! Accompanied by lovely black and white illustrations. Great for all Doctor Who geeks out there. Impossible to put down. Covers all the Doctors right up to Matt Smith. Perfect celebration of the longest running Si-FI TV series.

I have been anticipating the release of this book for almost a year - before I even knew what it was, in fact, due to teasing Twitter mentions by its illustrator Ben Morris. (Whose unique stylised work many Doctor Who fans will know from the pages of Doctor Who Magazine/Doctor Who Adventures and last year's charity Doctor Who book Behind the Sofa: Celebrity Memories of Doctor Who.)
I'm pleased to say the finished product does not disappoint. It never pretends to be more than it is - a fun, witty collection of assorted Doctor Who minutiae. It is very well presented; a nice, solid hardback volume in similar size to hardback novels, with a striking yet simple full colour cover (by Lee Binding) and then in black-and-white throughout. The illustrations (as previously mentioned, from Ben Morris) are in a simple, striking and effective black and white caricature style that sits well with the sometimes-less-than-serious (but certainly never comedic) content. Ben has a unique graphic style that remains both faithful to its sometimes complex subject matter and yet clear and dynamic to look at.

The authors, Cavan Scott and Mark Wright, have worked hard to compile a huge amount of information from both sides of Doctor Who. The fictional adventures of our favourite Time Lord are represented just as well as the behind-the-scenes production info. Expect timelines, actor biographies, character summaries, episode listings, fact compilations and quotations.
It's possible that the style of the book may not be to everyone's taste. There's a lot of detail for the casual fan to absorb, yet not as much real in-depth knowledge that the hard-core fan would expect.

Doctor Who Who-ology (Dr Who)
The 50th Anniversary of the Dr series of programmes brought out a plethora of books covering the programme and its history. So this book ( again by BBC books) is but one of many covering ( in this case) up to 2012/13.
I have probably ( at one time or another) seen all of the episodes since the first dramatic episode in November 1963 (broadcast delayed by the death of President Kennedy , if I remember correctly) .(I will never know if I am correct as , sadly , so many of the early episodes ( film or early video) were trashed by the BBC and odd film copies only arise now in odd parts of the world like Nigeria – not that Nigeria itself is odd – just that finding Dr Who film there is somewhat unusual)
So to the book – it starts with a 50 year diary of the Who timeline
It proceeds to discussing companions, villains, sonic screwdrivers and onto such gem trivia as to which actors also featured in Coronation street , the archers, James Bond , Harry Potter and other worthy programmes and films . Famous first and last words , time lord abilities , UNIT , the Tardis and its technology and the like are among many of the topics tackled. ( Too many to mention here)
It ends by listing by month/year of the Who episodes (with dates of transmission but little about the actual plots )
The book is for the dedicated WHO trivia buff aiming to bore the local pub to tears but if you wanted exact details and plots of the programmes in order you may need to look elsewhere – still give it a 5 star rating for effort and shear zaniness.

This is a good book if you like statistics,who said or did what,why they said/did it and to what effect.All there is to know about the first fifty years of the series,episodes,Tardises,(Tardi?),sonic screwdrivers,companions and most importantly the various incarnations of the Doctor and lots of info you wouldn't even think of were it not for this book.As has been said in other reviews,this is not so much a book to read from cover to cover - more a book full of facts,figures and details - a book to read between books!

Call an Ambulance! My brain is officially frazzled, lacking the ability to absorb any more information as it spirals uncontrollably out of control.

And it's all with thanks to BBC BOOKS' Police Box design wrapped, DOCTOR WHO - THE OFFICIAL MISCELLANY compiled by Cavan Scott & Mark Wright.

Should it include a `health warning' sticker on the cover? Certainly. Your life will never be the same again.

Irrelevant and irreverent in glorious & simultaneous measure that is, literally, regrettably for the post-lunch washing-up of crockery & utensils as it slowly plays host to colonies of bacterial mould as it remains unattended for days, literarily addictive. Ideally, the publishers should have designed into the publication `pace-pages' (never heard of them? Me neither...) that stop you firmly in your reading tracks, with a gentle reminder that "Please, feed the cat" or "Homework to complete" or "Go to Work and earn money".

How does knowing that Daleks have screeched their infamous battle-cry 496 times across the series, or that Matthew Waterhouse is the youngest actor to play an original TARDIS companion, or that the Third Doctor's `flying car' was actually called `Alien' help you improve your daily life? It doesn't but DOCTOR WHO fans are, in Freudian psychology terminology, `anally retentive', scrabbling for every nuance of information whether factual or incredulously creative, and DOCTOR WHO - THE OFFICIAL MISCELLANY will sate that feral appetite.
