Discover the dark secrets of Daleks, Cybermen, Sycorax, clockwork robots, blood-sucking Plasmavores and rhino-headed Judoon police.

Note:  Updated with additional content compared to the original UK edition. It is very unusual for a non-fiction new series book to have a separate US edition (this is the only one I'm aware of so far), however it's readily available from Amazon.co.uk and other online retailers.

Cover blurb:
Just who is... The Doctor?

Find out in this updated guide to his world

Now updated with more aliens, more gadgets and more wonders from across time and space.
