Doctor Who: Who-ology

HAPPY 50TH to the best show on Earth - DOCTOR WHO..... Presenting Doctor Who: Who-ology by Cavan Scott & Mark Wright.

Here is the summary of the book:

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.

I'm writing the review on the 23rd Nov.... which is incidently the day of the 50th Anniversary to 50 long years of WHO...... AWESOME. And Who-ology is equally awesome, the one book every WHO-vian should have on their shelf.

A lot of brands came up with their own products to celebrate this day but by far this is the official one and best one of the lot. From Totters Lane to Trenzalore, through UNIT history and the screwdriver that was sonic and the complexingly marvelous circuitry of the TARDIS, every facts, equations you need to know the Doctor is within these pages. With everything on our favorite time lord, his ever changing list of companion, about the enemies, so on and or forth. It explains everything one might need about how the series came to be, about how many adventures the Doctor had had on Earth or how many he had on a space ship or even distant planets.

And don't forget the anniversary episode is today... OH I AM BUBBLING WITH EXCITEMENT

We get to find out all about the Daleks, and the Snowmen, and the Ice Warriors, and the Cybermen. We get to read all about UNIT, about the one man the Doctor ever called his boss, the Brigadier. They even tell us exactly how long it would take to finish, if we start watching from William Hartnell's first Doctor..... And so much more in the 'timey-wimey' world of the Doctor..... And I think the book synopsis sums it up even more perfectly than I could.... All of 50 years of rich history on one single book....... Come on they even gave us the galactic coordinates to Gallifrey, i'm sure you all would like to set your TARDIS' to the shining world of the Time Lords.... I definitely would.

"A must have for all Whovians"
