Friday 56 & #BookBeginnings: Doctor Who-ology! #RRSciFiMonth

Buy This Book from Book Depository, Free Delivery World Wide


For Book Beginnings:
The Doctor started running on 23 November 1963 and hasn't stopped since. Fifty years of adventure have given us hundreds of stories, at least 11 Doctors and more monsters you can shake a plunger at. 
 - p. ix, Introduction

For Friday 56:
The programme is called Doctor Who while the character is just 'the Doctor.' That hasn't stopped the name of the show popping up. A lot. 
- p. 56, and follows is a table of episodes with variations of people asking"Doctor .. who?"

I posted about this some time back! It was included with one of the Doctor Who books I reviewed, and the daughter was stoked, STOKED to get it. Do you know which of us is a through and through Whovian? ;)
 
I know Whovians out there are dying to get their hands on this one. It's chockful. I'm not in a position to fully appreciate it ... but I will, I will, give me time! 
 
About Who-ology: 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.

  2. Oh my goodness...I feel completely out of the loop. I have NOT read nor watched Doctor Who. I'm afraid to get addicted to something I don't have the time for.

  4. I have to say that I don't quite get it. Despite being a fan of science fiction, I have never seen an episode of Doctor Who. Come see what I am spotlighting this week at Ms. Martin Teaches Media and Inside of a Dog. Happy reading!

  6. I want this one! I've nearly bought it so many times, haha =)

    I did however, recently order 'Doctor Who: the Vault' which is a big book celebrating the anniversary and past 50 years =D
