‘A glorious picture book... A visual treat’ — Time Out
‘A visual orgy.. A glorious, wallowing, indulgent trip down memory lane’ — Starburst
In 1963 Doctor Who first appeared on British television. It became the world’s longest running science fiction TV series and a British institution.
In 1973 three Doctor Who novels, first published in the sixties, were re-issued, and began an unbroken programme of book publishing that has produced over 150 novelizations, with eight million copies sold worldwide, and a growing series of original New Adventures.
This volume celebrates both achievements with a remarkable collection of photographs, cuttings, and full page reproductions of paintings in the most lavishly illustrated Doctor Who book ever published.
David J. Howe has been researching Doctor Who and collecting Doctor Who memorabilia for more years than he cares to remember. He also writes prolifically: he is the co-author of The Sixties and The Seventies, the definitive works about Doctor Who’s first two decades, and of the Handbook series which studies Doctor Who Doctor by Doctor; he also writes regularly for Doctor Who Magazine and Starburst.
