    1. With the Horror channel rerunning old Doctor Who episodes, it seemed like fun to read through these descriptions of the old episodes as I was watching them


    2. Saying I ve read this is a bit of a mis nomer it s like saying I ve read Webster s Dictionary But this book is about as useful, which is to say extremely As the title impliesis excellent book points out all the gaffes, on screen bloopers, and other opps of Classic Doctor Who Definitely a book every Doctor Who fan should own



    3. Entertaining and amusing taken in moderate doses Many factual errors makes you wonder about the quality of the tapes the authors say they consulted and frequently unnecessarily complicated retconning Nevertheless, if you want to look up a Doctor Who factoid this book is the most likely one to have it.


    4. Take the old Program Guide, replace each story synopsis with vigorous, pithy reviews, add in comments about origins, goofs, fluffs, and continuity debatesd a second classic non fiction bible for Doctor Who fandom is born.



    5. Still my go to reference book for Who Track down a copy you won t regret it The concise reviews of each story are funny and thoughtful The goofs section reflects the pedantic nature of a fan s love hate relationship with a show and this book really stands as a love letter to the show in that mid 90 s era when the show was kept alive by the fiction and non fiction that fans were writing.


    6. Great Whovian referenceThis is not really a book for reading through but great for dipping into and checking up on individual stories of the first seven Doctors Having said this once I started I just couldn t stop.


    7. There are only two Doctor Who guides I would recommend getting Lance Parkin s Ahsitory and this book by the trio of Paul Cornell, Martin Day and Keith Topping While Ahistory is essential to any Doctor Who fans library for putting the whole range of stories into a historical context this book is essential for a whole different reason It s a guide to the original series and does so with considerable tongue and cheek style For one thing this isn t your typical TV show guide It isn t full of cast in [...]


    8. Harrumph.I know this is heresy, because when this work was released, it apparently changed the way TV guidebooks were written I m sure this is true, and I m sure this book was a godsend when it first came out, prior the DVD mainstream internet era But those days are gone, and as a 23 year old who s relatively new to Who , I somewhat regret this purchase Well, not really, because it s essential for any collection due to its legacy, but Perhaps I ve been spoiled by the excellent About Time series, [...]


    9. I ve marked this as read today, though really it was finished months ago I made my way through all of the old episodes of Classic Who via DVD, CD, and Audible where appropriate and as I went I read the entries for those episodes in this book Often than once, so I ve probably read this a couple three times over It makes for an interesting extra bit of insight into each episode, with some plot notes, some big areas of continuity questions, and a lot of fun sub bits like Fashion Victims, Double En [...]


    10. I used to adore this godawful show when I would watch it on the local PBS affiliate in the 1990s with my little boy It allowed us to enjoy some wholesome fun and sparked our mutual imaginations and love of science fiction We even talked about going to see Patrick Troughton at a sci fi convention in Chicago, which we didn t do, alas, and he died very soon thereafter I have since tried to watch this show, but can t Without sharing this in the company of a young sensibility, the flaws of the show a [...]


    11. nhwvejournal 599526ml return return Yeah, yeah, I know that almost all of the text is also available on line But there s nothing like dead trees especially if you are in the middle of a long plane flight This is a great compilation of odd facts about the series, including most particularly an attempt to introduce consistency to such matters as the Doctor s age, his academic qualifications, the histories of the Cybermen and of the Daleks, and Mars Interesting to see the foreshadowing of two of th [...]


    12. I ve read this book at least 4 or 5 times, but this is my first time in a decade or so It defines a genre and it a must read But on re read I d forgotten just how hard they are on the Pertwee era I m pretty sure the writers have learned better in their later years.


    13. Excellent guide book for the original Doctor Who series Very loving and knowledgeable and funny too It gives critical reevaluations of all of the episodes and challenges conventional fan attitudes towards many of them.


    14. I love this book Honestly, it is such a fantastic guide for the classic Doctor Who series If I find myself watching an old episode, I will reach for this in heartbeat as my go to reference.



    15. Unfortunately, just adequate There s too much time discussing minutia and too little going after the big picture of the episodes.
