Our friends over at Hasslein Books have two, exciting new Doctor Who titles, now available to buy.

Who Beyond 50: Celebrating Five Decades of Doctor Who

Few television series have remained in production for decades. Fewer have come back from cancellation to spawn multiple spinoffs. And even fewer have thrived following the loss of their lead actor. Amazingly, Doctor Who can proudly boast all three claims.

Brian J Robb and Paul Simpson have assembled 50 thematic, chronological essays covering a wide variety of Who icons over the past five decades. The long-time collaborators posted preliminary versions at Sci-Fi Bulletin, but have delved into far greater detail for this collected edition, examining not only the show itself, but the background of each actor to play the role of the Doctor and each showrunner who helped keep the show alive, as well as the novels, the audios, the monsters, the companions, the music, the effects, fandom, and much more.

But Who Beyond 50 is more than just another TV retrospective. It's a grand exploration of one of the most beloved series of all time. It's a celebration of Who's surprises and successes, and an honest account of its faults and failures. It's all here. And it's about time.

Lost in Time and Space: An Unofficial Guide to the Uncharted Journeys of Doctor Who

BBC’s immensely popular Doctor Who series is a significant part of British pop culture and a cult favorite worldwide; the televised episodes, however, are just the tip of the iceberg, as the Doctor has referenced countless encounters never expanded upon onscreen. RiffTrax.com writer Matthew J Elliott has accepted the Herculean task of chronicling those “stories between the stories” in Lost in Time and Space: An Unofficial Guide to the Uncharted Journeys of Doctor Who.

Every character the Doctor met off-screen, every place he visited between episodes, and every event he witnessed while the cameras were turned off are meticulously mapped out on a timeline spanning the entire 50 years of Doctor Who, from long before the Doctor “borrowed” the TARDIS until the last days of his eleventh incarnation. This is not a typical Doctor Who project--but, then, Matthew is not a typical Doctor Who fan.

After five decades of time-traveling adventures, you might imagine you knew all there was to know about the greatest hero in all of time and space, but it turns out he was living another life entirely while we weren't looking. This is the story of that life.

Lost in Time and Space, a softcover volume spanning 350 pages, features an insightful foreword by Alan Barnes, the author of the animated Tenth Doctor adventure The Infinite Quest, and a writer and editor for Big Finish Productions' audio dramas featuring five of the Doctor’s earlier incarnations.
