Now re-issued in a revised and updated edition, the book remains the definitive guide to the television worlds and adventures of the Doctor and his companions. Every story is covered in depth in all aspects of production, including plot details, cast and crew lists, episode endings, transmission dates, memorable quotes and popular myths. In addition there is a comprehensive analysis of every adventure, utilising reviews both contemporary and retrospective from a wide variety of sources. This book is the essential companion for every trip you will ever take into the TV universe of Doctor Who.
