Editions:  UK (paperback) | UK (hardback)
Note:Reprint of the series of 7 Handbook reference books (one for each classic series Doctor), updated, revised and collected together into one bumper 800-page volume. Not simply a compilation of the original volumes, the content has also been increased by approximately 10,000 words, including an expanded First Doctor Production Diary, and a 'proper' script to screen treatment of The Ark. However, some of the original content was removed to avoid duplication with Telos's reprint of The Television Companion which had come out in 2003.
A further omnibus was later published in 2016, but this time split into two separate volumes: Volume One and Volume Two.

Cover blurb:
The complete guide to the production of Doctor Who from 1963 to 1996 — in one bumper volume!

On their first publication, the Doctor Who Handbooks were hailed as the best look behind the scenes of the BBC's cult science fiction show Doctor Who. Now collected in a revised and updated edition, this book is the definitive guide to the background and production of a television classic.

Including interview quotes from just about everyone involved in the production of Doctor Who from its origins in 1962 to the Paul McGann television movie of 1996. Features articles on the Doctor, his companions, the effects, the locations, the costume design, the script editing, the mythos behind the series and much, much more. Includes detailed script to screen examinations of one story from each Doctor's era, analysis of the media attention given to the series, plus an exhaustive breakdown of the production of the first three years of the show.
