Overview


Who is the Doctor is a fun and insightful episode guide that explores all facets of Doctor Who’s triumphant return to television. Covering the six seasons of the New Series, this is the essential companion for the most avid fan as well as the more casual viewer. Doctor Who was already the world’s longest-running science fiction series when it returned in 2005 to huge success. An enormously popular series among genre fans in North America, Doctor Who encompasses horror, science fiction, comedy, action, and historical adventure, and is loved for its uniquely British wit and clever scripting. It’s no wonder the series’ hero, monsters, and even its theme song are pop culture icons. In this volume, Doctor Who experts Graeme Burk and Robert Smith? bring insights into everything from the history of everything Doctor Who, including Daleks, Cybermen, and the eight Classic Series Doctors, to a guide to every episode of the New Series. Allons-y!

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Who is the Doctor is well-argued and considered and persuasive enough to keep you reading just that little bit more." —Vanessa Bishop, Doctor Who Magazine

"An incisive, unpretentious, eminently readable commentary on the first seven years of new Who. The authors' easy but lively discourse makes for a thought-provoking dialectic — a joyful celebration of fan love. Unofficial episode guides don't come much more engaging than this." —Benjamin Cook, writer for Doctor Who Magazine, and co-author Doctor Who: The Writer's Tale

"concentrated commentary on the worlds of the BBC's Doctor Who." —Two-Minute Time Lord

"ECW Press has made some fantastic TV show companion books, and this is a great addition to their line-up." —Craig Byrne, KSiteTv.com

"This is one of the finer episode guides I have run across for any show, and highly recommend it for any fan of the ninth, tenth, or eleventh Doctor." —Book Guys & Book Girls

"From the most ardent devotees to new-on-the-scene followers, every fan has something to gain from this indispensable handbook ... a thought-provoking and educational supplement to the first six series of the re-launched Doctor Who." —Lacie Patterson, Boomerocity.com

"Who is the Doctor is a strong addition to the many volumes written about the new show, and one that, I suspect, will be referred to long after the more cerebral analyses have faded into oblivion." —Paul Simpson, Sci-Fi Bulletin

"Who is the Doctor offers additional depth to the series, partly by picking out the important (and the trivial) things that are done in each episode." —Steven Silver, Steven Silver's Reviews

    Trolling. MOLTO BENE!

    I like how none of these "reviews" are actually about the book, but just tons of fan posts. I wish they had the new Doctor Who books to buy, since a lot of them are hard to get a hold of. Maybe you can suscribe to Doctor Who Magazine! That would be fantastic. I ship Justin Bieber with a trash can (Poor trash can) and the Doctor with River Song. Was anyone else disappointed when David Tennant didn't carry the torch to the London 2012 Olympics? (At least in the opening ceremonies they made that TARDIS noise.) Go Ryan Lochte and congratulations Micheal Phelps! Vworp! Vworp! Also, this book must have been good. It is about Doctor Who after all.

    Rise

    Everyone is saying that Rose sucks and River is only for The Doctor. But i think Rose is the only one for the 10th Doctor. And River is the only one for the 11th Doctor. I personally LOVE them both!
