Doctor Who Who-ology
Introducing Doctor Who Who-ology
If I hadn't already bought Doctor Who Who-ology then the book would definitely be number one on my Christmas Book Wish List!
Having read the book from cover to cover I can definitely recommend it as a Christmas Gift for the Doctor Who Fan on your Christmas list. In fact there are a number of our friends and family who will be getting a copy!
Like me, anyone who has had the pleasure of getting immersed in the Doctor Who universe is probably excited to be celebrating 50 fantastic years of time travel with The Doctor.
Doctor Who Who-ology would be the ideal gift for a birthday or as a Christmas gift.
A Doctor Who Bible For Every Whovian
A few of our friends are relatively new fans of Doctor Who and I think the Who-ology book is perfect for them as well! So, if you are a new fan, or are buying for new fans would want to understand all the fun and quirky Doctor Who references you keep encountering online and in real life, you need to get your hands on this book.
Who-ology book isn't just for newbies though. It is also perfect for long-time fans. Yes, the book contains some information that you might deem useless since you already know a lot about the program, but it can help you brush up on your Doctor Who knowledge.
Like me you may think that you are already an expert but you might have missed a few things (which is likely, because Doctor who writers love throwbacks, subtle and not-so-subtle ones), and I am sure you will be pleasantly surprised to learn about those.
Loads of Doctor Who Tidbits
Doctor Who Who-ology features a fifty-year timeline covering all the significant events that occurred in the Doctor Who universe. It also comes with a list of minor characters and companions presented in chart form for easy comparison. If there are characters you'd like to learn more about, you'd be delighted to read about them in this book (hint: even River Song has her own timeline in detail!). The TARDIS also gets her share of the limelight.
Of course, there's also a list of Doctor Who enemies that you might want to learn more about, which could make things even more exciting in the future. If you are a new fan, knowing the Doctor’s history with his nemeses would give a whole new layer to your TV viewing experience.
A Book Written By A Fan, For Fans
What makes this book amazing is that it is written by someone who obviously loves the show. This book is not a tired rehash of all the things you could easily find in a wiki site. It is a combination of interesting trivia, facts and statistics gleaned from years of being a true-blue Whovian. The information also appears to be well-researched. You will encounter some theories that you might not exactly agree with, but that’s yet another good thing about this book; it could get you thinking and crafting theories, and making your own what-if scenarios.
This book is especially formatted for light reading. You can also read this in small installments, such as during commercial breaks (which is why it could also be a perfect TV viewing companion). You can read it straight through or just choose a section right in the middle. It is also written in an upbeat tone, which makes it all the more interesting, although strangely enough, some people complain about that, wishing that it is written in an academic tone.
Doctor Who Who-ology seamlessly weaves the classic and the newer Doctor Who series, so whether you have been 'traveling' with the Doctor since his first incarnation or you have just recently discovered how magnificent his adventures are, this book is for you. A lot of people admitted to buying the book without expecting a lot, but they ended up pleasantly surprised.
If you want to give someone an amazing gift (or treat yourself) of a piece of Doctor Who history, or you just want to have a good time reading about the world's favorite "Doctor" (or you know someone who would), go get this book.
