In three decades of travelling through space and time, the remarkable TARDIS has taken the Doctor and his companions to some of the strangest places in the galaxy and introduced them to creatures out of their wildest nightmares.
Now, in this indispensable handbook, bestselling author Peter Haining examines the wonder of Time Travel as seen through the eyes of all the Doctors. He traces the origins of the hugely successful television programme from the literature of Time Travel in general and H.G. Wells’ classic novel, The Time Machine, in particular.
He also studies the Doctor’s regenerations as well as looking in detail at the Time Lord society on Gallifrey from which he comes. There is an inventory of the weird and dangerous planets the Doctor has visited, the space craft he has seen, and a comprehensive listing of the villains, monsters and robots that have crossed his path.
Peter Haining’s book offers a unique insight into the dramatic events which nearly ended the programme after twenty-three years, plus details of the new seventh Doctor. Finally, it contains an update on all the adventures which have been broadcast since the author’s earlier enormously successful book, Doctor Who: A Celebration.
