This is easily one of the best non-fiction Doctor Who books I've read so far, especially as a fan of the Classic Series who grew up with Tom Baker and Peter Davison. It doesn't just stop at the classic series, however, but also shows links and connections between Classic Who and New Who. In this way, this book does a great job of building a bridge between each era of Doctor Who, covering the entire 45 year span of the show (this book stops at Series 2 or 3, so it doesn't cover the whole 50 years).
