It's a fun read and a real page turner. Highly recommended!
Burk and Smith? do a fantastic job covering the series and the performers. Written from a fan's perspective with a great deal of levity, Who Is The Doctor is a fun read, but not suggested for those who have not yet watched the series. After all, it's an episode guide, taking you from the first episode of the reboot, "Rose," to the last episode of the sixth season, "The Wedding of River Song." The authors point out holes in the story, things that the casual viewer may not notice until it is pointed out, but they also praise the good points of each tale. They are unabashed fans of the current Doctor, portrayed by Matt Smith, and heap enormous amounts of praise upon him for his work in the role.
The book itself has rightly received praise from such genre heroes as author Neil Gaiman and Doctor Who writer Robert Shearman. Anyone who is a fan of the television program starring Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant, Matt Smith, Billie Piper, Freema Agyeman, and Karen Gillan will enjoy and learn from Who Is The Doctor.
My paperback came with an invitation to email the company with proof of purchase for a copy of the DRM-free ebook, which came promptly. Excellent service!
What Neil Gaiman said - except I have lost a heck of a lot more than four hours - cannot seem to put it down!
