Review

"It is an essential coffee table book for any Whoianâ?¿" - Filmmonthly.com



"Now, it's no secret that we're good buddies with Blogtor Who owner, Cameron K. McEwan, and when we heard he was coming out with a Doctor Who book that would act as "a whovian guide to friends, foes, villains, monsters and companions", we were very excited indeed - especially considering his vast knowledge and love for the show.

Once you finally get over adoring the beautifully embossed ‘Doctor Who' lettering on the cover, which also features The 10th, 11th and 12th Doctors (yes that is the correct numbering), you are presented with the simple, yet effective contents page that typifies this straight-up, no-nonsense guide which does exactly what it says on the proverbial tin.

The various sections within the book (The Doctors, The Companions, Friends & Allies, Robots, Time Lords & Ladies, Villains and Aliens & Monsters) are laid out beautifully and clearly in alphabetical order to easily find who you want.

As you thumb through pages and pages of character breakdowns, coupled with pictures and illustrations gloriously brought to life by Andrew Skilleter, you realise just how concise the book is. With over 50 years to draw from you will find information about characters you have long since forgotten (Rita from The God Complex), or even facts about the ones you thought you knew everything about.

The Who's Who Of Doctor Who is essential reading for anyone wanting to know anything from 'Ace' to 'The Zygons', and with over 300 entries to explore, you'll be reaching for it time and time again." - Doctor Who Online

1.0 out of 5 stars This book is poorly done Jan. 20 2014
By Bruce Bender - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I read this book and it was so badly done, I had to give it such a poor review.
In almost every category, there was a lot of missing information. In the Friends section for example, there was no mention of John Benton, Mike Yates (both regular members of UNIT) or Winston Churchill. Further, Sara KIngdom, when mentioned in the Companions category, was supposed to be in the Friends category, wasn't. But the worst insult was the entry for Joshua and Abagail Naismith. There wasn't one. Instead, there was the entry for Dums, Vocs and Super Vocs all over again. Was there even a proofreader here? The writers of this book need to go back and rerelease this book with all the errors and omissions corrected.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have for all Dr Who fans! Feb. 6 2014
By alexifa - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The artwork is fabulous, really top quality and for that alone, this book is worth the cost. It's also packed full of details and the fact that this covers fifty years of the Doctor is amazing. The characters and storylines are connected in an intuitive manner that works really well and the amazing illustrations are well thought out and really well drawn. Highly recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars The art is incredible Jan. 6 2014
By Sarah Fu - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
As a novice Whovian I'm blown away by the depth and attention to detail the author brings to all the inner-connections of each season of Doctor Who. The art is incredible, and I've enjoyed learning about Andrew Skilliter and Cameron McEwan - Blogtor Who - and their roles in the epic evolution of Doctor Who fan work. Amazing book, highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great effort. Great read Feb. 6 2014
By D Hawksworth - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
First off, I should make it clear that I'm pleased with this purchase. The detail is brilliant and I can see the author has spent a great deal of time and effort on the research and presentation here. The minor bug I have is that there is a couple of things missing from some sections. This doesn't negate the value of the book - it's still an encyclopedic volume of some distinction, but a little more research would have been great. Still highly recommended for fellow Whovians.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really Clears Everything Up For Me! Feb. 5 2014
By Benjamin Jacques - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I'm not going to lie, there are many times when I've been incredibly confused while watching Doctor Who but now that I have this book, it's really helping to clear things up for me quite a bit. Really goes into depth behind each character and digs a lot deeper into who they are, what they're all about, and the big roles they're playing in this show. By flipping through just a few profiles of the different characters, it made it a lot easier for me to understand how they tied together. Not only that, but the artwork in this book is absolutely incredible. Really amazing visuals for all the characters involved. If you're a Doctor Who fan, pick up this book :)
