Who Is the Doctor: The Unofficial Guide to Doctor Who -- The New Series Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Penned by the authors of the famed sci-fi series fanzine collections, this entertaining combination of episode guides and essays is a must-have for all Doctor Who aficionados. The handbook explores all facets of the six most recent seasons, providing an essential companion for the shows avid fans and casual viewers alike. The history of everything related to Doctor Who is touched upon, from Daleks and Cybermen to the eight Classic Series Doctors. Delving into a top-rated series that has made stars out of its actors, gained fame internationally, and encompasses the genres of horror, science fiction, comedy, action, and historical adventure, this all-inclusive guide also features behind-the-scenes tidbits and in-depth analyses of the series' latest installments.

Review:

"Who is the Doctor is well-argued and considered and persuasive enough to keep you reading just that little bit more." Vanessa Bishop, Doctor Who Magazine

Review:

"An incisive, unpretentious, eminently readable commentary on the first seven years of new Who. The authors' easy but lively discourse makes for a thought-provoking dialectic — a joyful celebration of fan love. Unofficial episode guides don't come much more engaging than this." Benjamin Cook, writer for Doctor Who Magazine, and co-author Doctor Who: The Writer's Tale

Review:

"This is one of the finer episode guides I have run across for any show, and highly recommend it for any fan of the ninth, tenth, or eleventh Doctor." Book Guys & Book Girls

Review:

"Who is the Doctor is a strong addition to the many volumes written about the new show, and one that, I suspect, will be referred to long after the more cerebral analyses have faded into oblivion." Paul Simpson, Sci-Fi Bulletin
