The BBC describes Doctor Who as the most poular ongoing series it has ever made. More than 40 years after the first episode aired, the cult series returned to the small screen with a huge budget and with acclaimed writer/producer Russell T. Davies at the helm. A new generation of viewers adopted Christopher Eccleston as their Doctor, just as previous generations embraced W ...more

Nerdy in the extreme, but fun for any fan of the orginial series. The critical commentary of each story is clear-eyed and, usually, dead on. Reading is somewhat hampered by the rigid format the authors use. Each story analysis (about two pages) is broken down into ten or so catagories. As a result it can be difficult to get a sense of what stories you aren't familiar with are about. Also, some note of which cast members are in each serial would be helpful for anyone not reading the book straight ...more

http://nhw.livejournal.com/965281.html[return][return]Published by Virgin in 2005 just before New Who started. Includes very brief summaries and extended critiques of all the classic series, plus the two Pertwee audios, Slipback, the BBC webcasts, and the Children in Need specials. (Why no Pescatons?) Rates Peter Davison much higher than Tom Baker, and fiercely critical of some of the most popular Hinchcliffe/Holmes stories. The authors acknowledge Cornell, Day and Topping's Discontinuity Guide ...more

In the wake of Doctor Who's return in 2005, came this new book...

It’s the latest revised guide to the original television series, and it’s worth it for some new categories such as Things Fall Apart, as well as some nicely substantial (and often very drool) reviews. It’s certainly a bit stronger and more forthright than some of the other Doctor Who guides, but it was never boring, and I tore through it with pleasure. It’s the kind of book that makes you happy to be a geek. ;-)

Decent guide to the classic series. Includes the TV movie, animated webcasts and a few things that slipped through the cracks. You probably won't agree with it everywhere, but it's worth looking at. People just getting into the classic episodes might not find it as useful.

This book isn't perfect, but it's the one I used to get to grips with all of Classic Who. Great to use as a reference book!
