From the team who brought you the hugely popular Doctor Who Magazine, as well as the team behind some of the most successful partworks on the market, comes a truly fantastic collectable magazine and book series called 'Doctor Who: The Complete History'.
Issue 1 hit our desk this morning, and we were immediately blown away by just how jam-packed full of information and facts the first book was. Issue 1 comes with Volume 55, which looks at five David Tennant / 10th Doctor adventures (Gridlock, Daleks In Manhattan, Evolution Of The Daleks, The Lazarus Experiment & 42).
The book series is hailed as the 'definitive guide to the making of Doctor Who' and it lives up to every letter of that tagline. There are some truly beautiful illustrations and images to be found throughout.
In addition to the book, you get a mini pull-out magazine with Issue 1, which includes a timeline of The Doctor and a short bio on each Doctor. The magazine opens out to a gloriously huge poster of Daleks in Manhattan / Evolution Of The Daleks.
Kudos to everyone involved; particularly John Ainsworth (Editor) Lee Johnson (Story Montages) and Paul Vyse (Designer), whose combined efforts (as well as the extended team) have delivered this exciting new collection that every fan of the good Doctor should own!
