Subject matter Edit
Publisher's summary Edit
Almost everything you need to know in one essential guide.
Who is Who? A Time Lord from the planet Gallifrey with two hearts and thirteen lives? A folk hero who enthralled us in the warm glow of our TV sets on dark winter evenings? A rebellious iconoclast who toppled corrupt dictatorships and freed the oppressed? Or a bumbling British eccentric who fought rubber monsters in a cheap and cheerful BBC kids' show?
The story of Doctor Who is the story of the hopes and fears of generations of children — and grown-ups too — from the counter culture 60s to the 90s. Along the way there are shock revelations, melodramatic cliff-hangers and liberal doses of humour (intentional or otherwise); but be warned — there is also heart-ache, disappointment and death. Cancelled in 1989, the rumour mill is now in overdrive with stories of the Time Lord's possible return.
