About this deal

I know the book is supposedly for children, and is a super easy read, but seems a bit too removed from the lore for my tastes to be taken as a serious medium of encyclopedia Who-knowledge. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. This book brings together the best - and the worst - of his enemies, companions, and fellow Time Lords. Dazu kommt, dass das Buch ein sehr aktuelles ist, was mich letztendlich zum Kauf bewegt hat, zusammen mit dem Blick ins Inhaltsverzeichnis. An incredible bind-up of three stunning Doctor Who guides, with brand-new content from the Thirteenth Doctor era*For over forty years, the Doctor has battled against the monsters and villains of the universe.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Furthermore, the material taken from The Companion's Companion was entirely rewritten to be from the Doctor's perspective instead of that of Clara Oswald, and information about monsters and adversaries from The Dangerous Book of Monsters was given an expanded focus on the "Classic Era" as the original book was primarily focused on those seen since 2005. The book is packed with information although it really concentrates on the latter years as opposed to the classic years and so there is no mention of the Zarbi from the Web Planet, Aridian Mire Beasts and Mechanoids from The Chase or The Master of the Land of Fiction from The Mind Robber, to name just a few. First appearing on air in 1963, it follows the adventures of the Doctor, a Time Lord who travels through time and space, fighting alien monsters and saving the universe.

For instance, the book has an extensive (though not exhaustive) encyclopedia of foes, enemies, creatures etc that the Doctor has encountered. As a consolidated edition of most of the previous instalments in the series — How to be a Time Lord, The Dangerous Book of Monsters, and The Companion's Companion — A Short History of Everyone contained a significant amount of material previously written by both Craig Donaghy and Justin Richards. Compiled from the vety best guides to the world of Doctor Who (with new entries from the Doctor herself), this is the ultimate book on the most magical of universes. Für langjährige, eingefleischte Fans könnten die kurzen Abrisse zu einzelnen Spezies zu oberflächlich sein, aber um sich einen groben Überblick zu verschaffen, ist dies eine sehr gute Empfehlung!

The text contains type and hand scrawl written across the pages and is accompanied with photographs from the series and artwork, some of which looks like it was drawn by a five-year-old child. And if you remember the episodes of 11 with Amy, Rory, and River you will remember that "an image of an angel becomes itself an angel" so actually having this image doesn't make any sense. This book was also updated with new entries to cover topics from the Thirteenth Doctor's era and the "Classic Era" of Doctor Who.Whether you read it on or behind the sofa, this book provides a wealth of information about the monsters and villains that have made Doctor Who the tremendous success it has been over the years, and the galactic phenomenon that it is today.

Doctor Who: A Short History Of Everyone covers a large majority of the characters and events which have taken place in recent years of the television programme. it is fascinating, and the comments from different doctors (mostly 11th, 12th and 13th) are very funny!

The recycled material from previous instalments also carried over in-universe, as this book was stylised as as in-universe memoir put together by the Thirteenth Doctor, who acknowledged the re-use of material written by her previous incarnations and their friends, anticipating the possibility that the next Doctor was feeling "pretty weird" after regenerating. Of course, if all the events and characters from 59 years of Doctor Who had been included, then the book would probably have been too heavy to lift.A Short History of Everyone was the fifth book in the Official Guide series, published on 20 October 2022 [ source needed] by Penguin Group.
