Cover blurb:
In the very first scene of the very first episode of Doctor Who, the camera focuses on an incongruous, strangely humming Police Box. The full significance of this would only become apparent over the following years as this disguised space-and-time machine called the TARDIS was shown to be the Doctor's one constant companion throughout his many adventures.

For decades the TARDIS has taken the Doctor and friends — including us — to locations around the world throughout its history, and to every corner of the universe. The Doctor's granddaughter Susan once revealed the Ship kept a record of its journeys: THE TARDIS CHRONICLES is that log. Every trip, every planet, every passenger — everything this remarkable vessel has experienced during its travels.

As well as charting the TARDIS's journeys, the Chronicles contain complete details of which controls do what; all we learn about the Ship's functions and abilities; analysis and discussion of its operation and landings; and facts about how the marvels of the TARDIS were produced using props, sets, models and effects — debunking a few myths along the way.

Plus there are accurately illustrated histories of each Police Box prop, control room set and control console, covering their design, construction and many modifications.

THE TARDIS CHRONICLES tells you everything there is to know about the real star of Doctor Who.

Volume 1 covers the TARDIS's travels before the Doctor enlisted in the Time War, from his flight from Gallifrey to a gunship crashing on Karn
