the definitive guide to the new series,
This review is from: Back to the Vortex: The Unofficial and Unauthorised Guide to Doctor Who 2005 (Paperback)
Back to the vortex is the nearest you'll ever get to an ultimate guide to the 2005 series of Doctor Who. True, it isn't as lavishly illustrated as the official books, but it tells the full story in a highly entertaining way.
The first section is an account of the journey that led to the TV series being made. This section is the better of the two, taking you on an exciting ride through the production and, particularly, the reaction from the public, the press, and the fans from before the series was announced right through to the end of the show. And, though I had a few minor niggles, I doubt anybody could have written it better.
The second section is the most complete episode guide you'll ever see to the series. Each episode has been analysed from every conceivable angle. You won't find any guide in another book or online that even comes close to this in terms of detail or rigour.
If you only buy one book about the new series, make it this one.
