Talk about it here.

This is a work of non-fiction.

Unlike other fictional universes, the Doctor Who universe is created solely by fiction. To us, this is not a valid source. Information from this source can only be used in "behind the scenes" sections, or on pages about real world topics.

Pocket Essentials: Doctor Who was published in 2000.

Subject matter Edit

This is a dense book covering each television story from An Unearthly Child through the Doctor Who TV movie and brief notes on the early Big Finish Audios and other spin-off media.

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.

Notes Edit

  • Has a solid quick synopsis of each televised story.
