Notable features Edit

  • This well-illustrated hardback volume, complete with an embedded blue glass Dalek eye on the cover, conforms to the publisher (Dorling Kindersley)'s usual high standard of visual guides, offering annotated and cut-away photographs/illustrations throughout.
  • The attention to detail is impressive, even including the exhibits in Henry van Statten's collection.
  • The fold-out "Inside the TARDIS" pages are themselves stunning and, for the first time ever, reveal the concept drawings of the whole TARDIS in all its sceptre-shaped glory, and include the "Nerve Centre" (aka console) layout.


Second edition Edit

The second edition was a greatly expanded illustrated guide to Doctor Who — from its return in 2005, up to and including the Eleventh Doctor's first series.
