The Doctors Who's Who: The Story Behind Every Face of the Iconic Time Lord

The Doctors Who's Who: The Story Behind Every Face of the Iconic Time Lord Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Updated from the hardcover, this book provides detailed biographies of the 11 actors who have played the Time Lord, including the latest, Matt Smith
Doctor Who is the world's longest-running science fiction television series, and the role of the Time Lord has been a career landmark for all 11 actors who have played him. Few roles in television history are as iconic, demanding, or as anticipated by its legion of fans as that of the famous time traveler with two hearts. This compendium of facts about the men behind the role reveals to fans who was a bouncer for the Rolling Stones before taking control of the Tardis, who was nearly blown up in World War II aboard HMS Hood, who had a fondness for wooly hats and a grandson who would become Harry Potter's nemesis, and who played a transvestite barmaid before becoming a Who heartthrob. All these bizarre facts are expained, and many more, as the lives and careers of each Doctor—including the youngest and most recent incarnation, Matt Smith—are put under the spotlight and given the credit they so richly deserve. Including interviews with many of the stars, this is a must-have for any fan.
