Each day of the year is marked by some sage words that not only challenge your Who trivia knowledge but also wonderfully amuse (especially if you get the references, of course!) Not only that but each and every day also has its own illustration that, like the wonderful text, refers either to an episode that broadcast on that day, an actor who has (or had) a birthday on that day (especially during the Doctor Who lean summer months), or, on a handful of more desperate days when there were no birthdays or broadcasts, an episode that was shot on that day!
That's not all, you also get an astrological reading covering your birth year (assuming you were born between 1963 and 2013, inclusive) and each of the signs of the zodiac have been reformed in Doctor Who's image, again with some appropriately witty description (mine being Nimon the Bull!).
A book for any true Doctor Who fan, though more casual viewers may be a little lost but I'd like to think they'd still be amused!
As I write this it is the 28th of November - one of the birthdays listed is for 'Karen Sheila Gillan (1987)' and an extract of the text warns: "Do not waste your time hanging around waiting for a childhood friend to turn up - why not spend your time reading about Romans and mythical boxes - or date a nurse." Wise words indeed! Also a very fine picture of a lady in a police uniform accompanies it.
Whether you're into horoscopes or not, this book is sure to raise a smile. It's incredibly clever - the author has taken a phenomenal amount of time to research and write the book.
It's very knowledgeably written and beautifully illustrated. Highly recommended for all who fans!
