Who Is The Doctor: The Unofficial Guide to Doctor Who — The New Series

Burk, Graeme

  • The ultimate guide to the world’s longest-running science fiction series

    Who is the Doctor is a fun and insightful episode guide that explores all facets of Doctor Who’s triumphant return to television. Covering the six seasons of the New Series, this is the essential companion for the most avid fan as well as the more casual viewer.

    Doctor Who was already the world’s longest–running science fiction series when it returned in 2005 to huge success. An enormously popular series among genre fans in North America, Doctor Who encompasses horror, science fiction, comedy, action, and historical adventure, and is loved for its uniquely British wit and clever scripting. It’s no wonder the series’ hero, monsters, and even its theme song are pop culture icons.

    In this volume, Doctor Who experts Graeme Burk and Robert Smith? bring fans insights into everything from the history of everything Doctor Who, including Daleks, Cybermen, and the eight Classic Series Doctors, to a guide to every episode of the New Series. Allons-y!
