Publisher's summary Edit

Think you know the Doctor? Think again.

From his beginnings as a crotchety, anti-heroic scientist in 1963 to his current place in British pop culture as the mad and dangerous monster-fighting saviour of the universe, the titular character of Doctor Who has changed a lot in his 50 years on television — and not just his face. And yet the questions about him remain the same: Who is he? Why does he act the way he does? What motivates him to fight evil across space and time?

The Doctors Are In is a guide to television's most beloved time traveller from the authors of Who is the Doctor and Who's 50: The 50 Doctor Who Stories to Watch Before You Die. This is a guide to the Doctor himself — who he is in his myriad forms, how he came to be, how he has changed (within the program itself and behind the scenes)...and why he's a hero to millions.
