The 2nd in the series of books looking at the various creatures that appear in the Doctor's amazing travels this book is a wealth of infomation. If you're already a big Doctor Who fan then this book won't necessarily teach you anything new but it's all presented so well with a really good layout featuring loads of great, colourful pictures from the series, models and sketches from the design stage of the monsters and script extracts.

Another thing i'm well pleased with this book about is that it'

Another fun A to Z guide, with more of a focus on Series Two.

It’s nice that it includes Classic Monsters that have only had one screen appearance to date...

I liked this one more than the previous ones. It had more of a focus on season 2, and I really liked it. On the creatures from Old Who, it could get a bit confusing in the explanation.
However, this does have my all time favourite episode in so yay.

David Tennant #10 & Rose are on the cover, but we go back to the first Doctor. Oriented to child reader or aficianado, including minor character names, yet missing actors, photos of mentioned companions sent me internet searching for original footage. For example, in Fury From the Deep, the Seaweed Creature infects Oak & Quill, who "infect Harris", but who's he? Who's Jo, late Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart/ actor Nicholas Courtney? What's the 'spectacular today' Jagaroth ship explosion?

One of the earlier spinoff books from New Who, this pulls together the monsters of the new series and some of the best remembered opponents from Old Who - the Axons, the Zarbi, and many in between including the Rani and Omega, but not the Master specifically, though he is given a sidebar under the Dæmons. It is an interesting example of firmly branding Old Who as part of New Who continuity, and is nicely put together, if rather short.

A fun 'reference' book for the Whovian. Lots of pictures and when the creatures first appeared (show titles/air dates/which Doctor & companion) As well as some behind the scenes stuff; sketches, script excerpts, applying makeup/masks. Just don't blink when you're reading about the Weeping Angels! ...more

A decent book for all Doctor Who lovers. Goes into a lot of detail about the various aliens and enemies of the Doctor, and ties it into the TV show.
