This is so much fun. It lays out the entire new series chronologically, from 1184 BC to 100,000,000,000,000 at the end of the Universe. It even includes the parallel universe and right turn v. left turn events for Donna. Everything is laid out nicely and is as clear as it can be, for wibbly wobbly timey wimey stuff. Lots of humor pulled from the show (a 1941 subject heading is Marxism in Action, a Captain Jack sighting in the 51st century reads, "Sentenced to death for unknown crimes, Captain Ja ...more

It's Doctor Who, what can I say?

yes, I was having a bit of a Doctor Who thing in the early summer months of this lovely year 2014. It happens. In fact, every couple of years I think, hey, I haven't watched Doctor Who in a while. And funnily enough whenever I think that I think about the scenes of 9 and Rose in front of the London eye in the 2005 pilot, when he takes her hand (again) and tells her to run, because that is when I instantly fell in love with the show.

So I end

An in-depth look at the Ninth and Tenth Doctor’s adventures presented in an easy to follow guide.

Everything is listed in chronological date order which subsections colour coded, so for example Significant People (Red) Species (Green).

I practically liked looking at The Doctor’s adventures on earth during the twentieth century.

A great book for Whovians, with brightly illustrated photographs and information. Sadly out of date now (as the book was second hand) but I still enjoyed flipping through and discovering some new facts and Who history.

This book is a mash-up of actual history (in some spots) and Doctor Who history. It focuses on events pertaining to the Christopher Eccleston and David Tennant episodes, with occasional references to previous Doctors and events. The book is set up by time periods, from 1184BC to the year 100,000,000,000,000, then subdivided into categories such as Major Events, Significant People, Species of the Universe, etc. There are lots of color pictures as well to help clarify things.

Shelves: doctor, who, 2012, 1208, xn[return][return]The problem with books like this is that they so quickly go out of date, a particular shame in this case, where Tribe has assembled in internal chronological order all of the stories of New Who up to Last of the Time Lords (ie starting with The Fires of Pompeii and ending with Utopia) including Attack of the Graske and The Infinite Quest, and brief explanations of Old Who stories which are mentioned in New Who (plus a few other tantalising references, eg to the Animus on p 7), but no coverage of To ...more

Another show I absolutely loved so of course I had to get the almanac and read it. Fascinating and gave me my fix until another season arrives.
