Customer Review

on 24 October 2005
Telos have previously published two books - the Companion and the Handbook - which provide an in-depth guide to the making and reception of Dr Who 1963-1996. This book performs both tasks for the 2005 season, and includes much more critical analysis than in the previous books. To be honest, the plot synopses will not help you much if you haven't seen the series, but the critical depth of analysis by Lyons is impressive. Getting perspectives from different reviewers is also a nice touch, though there is some consensus about the season (for the record: Russell Davis does jokes and characters, but not plots; Billie Piper was great; Eccles was good but under-used; the Slitheen were awful and the guest writers provided the best stories). Despite the cover - which is awful - this isn't a thrown-together fan-publication. Nor is it a lavish pictures and little-depth BBC publication. Taking this into account, it is seriously recommended for all those who have been sucked into the world of Who...
