Synopses & Reviews
From a lipstick at the dawn of creation to a fob watch at the end of time, these 100 objects tell the story of the universe and the most important man in it: the Doctor. Along the way, civilizations will rise at the stroke of a match and fall to a sneeze. Scarves will be knitted by the wives of prophets, and ray guns will be built by royalty. This fascinating book also explains the real-world history of the various objects - from the invention of the Loch Ness Monster legend in the 1930s to how long it would really take to send a message of universal domination. It uncovers the hidden history of the Time Lords, presents an illustrated guide to invisible monsters, and explores the Rani's wardrobe. Containing full-color photographs and exclusive artwork, A History of the Universe in 100 Objects is the essential guide to the most iconic items ever seen in Doctor Who.
The history of the Doctor though 100 famous - and infamous - objects!
