About the Author
Paul Smith is a graphic designer and production editor with more than 20 years’ experience in the business press. Much of his work has involved presenting technical information and data in a clear fashion for easy understanding by the readership, but this is the first time he has applied those techniques to the facts and fiction of the BBC television series 'Doctor Who'. As well as producing his own magazines on the subject, Smith designed and edited 'The Barry Newbery Signature Collection' (Telos Publishing, 2012) and is working on a second title featuring the photo collection of fellow BBC designer Raymond P Cusick. 'Time & Space Visualiser' is his first self-originated and commercially available book.

There are many, many more with a healthy amount of text to accompany each diagram. Highly recommended if you are extremely nerdish.
However at £22.45 (plus varying prices) it is steep for what you get. It's paperback and looks remarkably thin (although it has a large page count) My first impression was "Is that it?". With this kind of price I would have at least expected hardback. I don't mind paying over the odds but it has to look like it justifies the cost. (Nearer £15 max in my opinion)
I expect the high price is because it's from a little known publisher (apologies to Wonderful Books if you are a Super-Chain)
HOWEVER. IT IS A GREAT BOOK. Perhaps wait until the price drops.
Loses a star for the price
However, the only problem I had, which I'm sure wouldn't be a surprise to you but I do think it is a bit overpriced and this actually gave me doubts when I was first contemplated on buying it. But I guess Doctor Who got the better of me and I couldn't resist. I'm not sure if I would say it is definitely worth £24.95, but it certainly is a beautiful representation in a visual and informational aspect of Doctor Who it really is stunning. This is why I only gave it 4 stars, because of the price weighing it down. Although, if we forgot about the price and just primarily focused on the product and its context then I would certainly give it a 5 star rating.
Although, if you are a Doctor Who fan then I do believe you could forgive your self for buying this product (concerning the price) as it really does provide rich detailed information across the whole series of Doctor Who.
