This is a Doctor Who volume whose time has come (pun not intended). Being a bit of a Whovian, as well as a writer in the genre, I own some other recently-released reference works: the excellent Who-ology and the Doctor Who Character Encyclopaedia chief among them. These are excellent and definitive works, but the key thing is that - by their very nature - they're not readable. Yes, they're lovely to dip into or browse, but you can't digest the contents. And it's all just terribly confusing and a bit much.

This is the big plus of Cameron K McEwan's seminal work: you can sit down and read it with a great deal of pleasure - no matter what your age or your level of knowledge. The author gives us a wonderful narrative of the story to date - something I've not seen anywhere else. In no time at all (stop me!) you get a start-to-finish overview of the entire series - the characters of the Doctor's incarnations, their companions, travels and adversaries.

With over fifty years of storylines, things can get a little complex and hard to understand (even the BBC scriptwriters have had trouble remaining consistent within the storyline). Sure, if you need a definitive answer to a specific question, then Who-ology is terrific. But even if you're as old as me and have memories of cowering behind the sofa to Peter Troughton's adversaries (the second Doctor, to the uninitiated) then you're going have problems getting a proper feel for how the series - with its twelve incarnations of the Doctor, and a vast cast of companions and monsters - has unfolded.

Read it for fun and clarity - you'll get more out of every episode you watch. (Afterthought - they should give this to the scriptwriters so that they don't keep tripping over the storyline...)

In a market already overcrowded with books about every aspect of Dr Who it might be wondered if there was space for yet another. Well, there up is when it's this good! Cameron K. McEwan, aka Blogter Who, knows his subject matter very well indeed. He also writes well and with considerable assurance and carries you along with almost breathless amounts of enthusiasm. Despite a few typos that should have been picked up at the copy editing stage, this is a book every Whovian should have in their collection. John Matthews.

I would like to say nice things about most Who books - but, I'm sorry, charity and benevolence simply dries up when I try to bring myself to say anything about this effort. If you own previous volumes like Gary Russell's Doctor Who Encyclopedia, or the old BBC Book of Lists or any of the many, many volumes that list characters and print pretty pictures you seriously, seriously do not need this book. For that is all it is - very spare descriptions of (a rather random collection of...) characters, for the most part badly written or ill-thought through (I just love the description of the 12th Doctor that extrapolates an entire character from his brief appearance at the end of Time of the Doctor...I laughed so much it hurt), and some largely poorly presented, and in some cases seemingly very rushed, illustrations. This is the absolute nadir of unauthorised (or it certainly feels unauthorised - despite the use of the logo on the front...) publications. Buy yourself The Encyclopedia instead. Or perhaps surf the internet and look up Doctor Who characters you are interested in. You will save yourself money and learn a great deal more.

A lovely, glossy book of descriptions of all your favourite well-known characters alongside the more obscure. A great additon to any fan's collection, I particularly enjoyed the indepth description of each Doctor and their story arcs at the start of the book.

Greatly enhanced by the numerous glossy pictures; a perfect gift for any fan.
