The rear dustjacket flap contains character summaries of Doctors 1-8:

A mischevious old wizard, the First Doctor is not above sabotaging his own TARDIS or endangering his friends to get what he wants. He sometimes travels with his granddaughter, Susan

An impish vagabond in time, the Second Doctor is a playful and enthusiastic character, but with a sometimes melancholic side. Enemies underestimate his resolve and determination

The Third Doctor is a dashing, imperious chap, an expert in Venusian aikido and friend to all the famous and infamous figures in time. He was exiled to Earth for a while by his own race

Instantly recognisable in his enormous scarf and long coat, the tall, booming-voiced Fourth Doctor is a strange and alien eccentric, and is completely unpredictable

Dressed in his beloved cricketing gear, the Fifth Doctor — an old man in a youngster’s body — is a good, compassionate figure struggling in a universe of horrors

The bombastic and larger-than-life Sixth Doctor, usually dressed in an outlandishly multicoloured coat, can be fiercely perceptive, with a keen and sometimes ruthless moral purpose

Once upbeat and effervescent, the wily and elusive Seventh Doctor now often lets his companions take the foreground, while he lingers in the shadows to catch his enemies off-guard

Bursting with enthusiasm and joie de vivre, the Eighth Doctor lives in the moment... which can often be his weakness. He has travelled with several different companions, but often travels alone.
