The official miscellany, celebrating 50 years of Doctor Who.

Do you know your Sontarans from your Silurians? What are the 40 best ways to defeat a Dalek? What are the galactic coordinates of Gallifrey? Test your knowledge of the last Time Lord and the worlds he's visited in Who-ology, an unforgettable journey through 50 years of Doctor Who. Packed with facts, figures and stories from the show's entire run, this unique tour of space and time takes you from Totters Lane to Trenzalore, taking in guides to UNIT call signs, details of the inner workings of sonic screwdrivers, and a reliability chart covering every element of the TARDIS. With tables, charts and illustrations dotted throughout, as well as fascinating lists and exhaustive detail, you won't believe the wonders that await. Are you ready? Then read on, you clever boy. And remember.

Everything you wanted to know about Doctor Who is answered in this book! WHO-OLOGY: The Official Miscellany celebrates over 55 years of Doctor Who. That includes the 12th Doctor's final episode. Though we still may be in denial over it really being over. This must have book includes fun facts, time lines, charts, lists, a lot of in-depth details, and also features illustrations through the book. Essentially all of the questions we've had, are answered in this book. 

I loved the fascinating details about the Doctor Who world. This book is chalk full of everything you wanted to know about Doctor Who, and than some. My favorite is the timeline and details of Doctor Who that starts from the very beginning and ends at the very end of the series run. Also included in the book that I found fascinating; the appendix of the story lists, the list of the various doctors who have played Doctor Who, the Tardis library, numerous facts about the characters (good and bad), details about the universe, and so much more. 

If you're a Doctor Who fan, you'll want to pick up this book. It's almost as good as if you could step into the Tardis and go back to when it all started.... almost. This book is definitely worth adding to your Doctor Who collection.
