    While I generally feel a certain amount of dislike for products that feel like the marketing dept is running the show the Dr Who History of the Universe in 100 Objects does provide a good account of items that are significant in the series This is uite handy as objects are important to the stories Plus it was a huge hit with the person I gave it to as a gift

    A great new coffee table Doctor Who book in the style of other list books The objects chosen are from both the classic series and the 2005 series and are arranged in chronological order well Doctor Who universe chronoligical order anywayEach item is accompanied by a new piece of artwork and an explanation of what it is It is then followed by a production and continuity detailsThe text is well written and cheeky and the artwork is great Some artwork reveals details of object or monsters that were not depicted in the show There is a lot of detail here to enjoyI received this book as a Christmas present from my parents in law It was a great choice for me for a couple of reasons New Doctor Who books tend to be very new series heavy and have only brief mentions of classic series information They also tend to be written for the juvenile audience and not long term fansI'm even very tired of the new fiction being produced I have only read a handful but if they can't even get Stephen Baxter to produce a decent story I cannot imagine any are of any uality See my review of Stephen Baxter's The Wheel of IceA History of the Universe in 100 Objects was a fun read that celebrated all of Doctor Who The text was not written specifically for a 10 year old and the overall uality of the book was high In my opinion there has not been a uaility Doctor Who book published like this for the last several years since the 'About Time' series by Miles and co and that wasn't even BBC I'd recommend that any long term Doctor Who fans put it on their 2013 Christmas or birthday lists

    is really rather gorgeous clearly rips off the British Museum's excellent podcast and book with similar titles but a good idea is worth stealing imitating Tribe and Goss list 100 important objects in the Whoniverse in chronoligical order ie from the early universe to the far future passing through the 1960s and 2000s en route mentioned in TV stories from 1963 to 2012; each entry recapitulates the story or stories in which the particular object appears but then also looks at other stories with similar themes eg space arks and even at sources of inspiration for the originating writers The whole thing is beautifully illustrated Definitely at the top end of the Doctor Who reference book range

    Loads of great Dr Who trivia and information on objects characters and a plethora of other stuff for every Whovian on this planet or any other come to that

  5. Theresa Theresa says:

    This a great Doctor Who fan book The print is “newspaper” print the pictures are beautiful printed and the information is tied to all the Doctors to Matt Smith’s DoctorI liked the information and the history of the past Doctors and their episode Some of the episodes are lost foreverI enjoyed reading about the different items like The Trojan Horse Mondas Axonite and the Peking Homunculus I also liked revisiting the items and monsterscharacters from past Doctor Who

    Interesting there's a lot there More of the objects are from the current run but it does cover the whole of Doctor Who

  7. Erika Erika says:

    An interesting way to tour through Doctor Who A little odd though since it was written just prior to season 7 of new Who so you got a throw back vibe

    This is a somewhat odd book The idea is stolen from the BBC's History of the World in 100 Objects which examined the history of the world through objects in the British Museum This book picks a hundred objects from Doctor Who and creates a timeline of the series from before the dawn of time to the end of the Universe The format is interesting and fun the object is described and placed in its context around the episode in which it appeared tying it to other objects and times as reuired Then we jump of out the story and you'll find sections on the production of the series and notes about wider real life historyThe history is certainly very diverse taking in the full range of the series from the first Doctor's pipe object 10 to the eleventh Doctor's fez object 65 In places we jump from Bowie Base One to Gallifrey to Mondas with an even handed mix between the New and Classic seriesAs a reference book however it fails with no index table of contents or other way to uickly look something up It's a great book for randomly picking up and browsing though

  9. Jess Jess says:

    Highly enjoyable for what it is Good info and good balance between classic and modern Who Yes you may uestion why some items are included and others not but they explain their arbitrary nature in the introduction It's very humor filled and much in the mind set of the Doctor I uite enjoyed the relationships made and the comparisons of various Doctors companions villains and beings across all of Who on the same subjects I only wish this had come out two years later and fully wrapped the 50th Anniversary stories into this collection

    A fantastic combination of Doctor Who coffee table book and encyclopedic resource What's fantastic about it is 1 the right amount of tongue in cheek attitude and 2 the occasional mistake that long term fans will pick up along the wayand I believe based on the book's introduction are MEANT to pick up along the way Delightful from start to finish and nice first outing to celebrate the upcoming 50th anniversary year
