The Doctor Who Programme Guide books

Indispensable for many Who fans in the 1980s and beyond — Jean-Marc Lofficier's series of guides to Doctor Who. These were originally published in two volumes in 1981 — Volume 1 being an episode guide to Seasons 1-18, and Volume 2 being a A-Z reference guide to actors, writers and characters from the prgramme.

The books were revised and republished between 1989 and 1992, with the first volume kept mostly intact (though expanded to cover seasons 1-26) while the second volume was overhauled, expanded and split into two separate books, titled The Terrestrial Index (a guide to actors, writers and spinoffs, plus a chronology of Earth history), and The Universal Databank (an A-Z of characters, aliens and planets from the programme).

Two new editions of Volume 1 were subsequently published: in 1994 and 2003. Then, in 2015, Paul Smith wrote an equivalent episode guide to the new series, appropriately called The New Who Programme Guide, with a cover design in homage to the classic 1989 edition. (This new guide is also listed on this page as it is clearly meant as a continuation of the series — it even contains a foreword from Jean Marc Lofficier himself)
