Each recipe has a name, the episode to which it is tied, a picture, the ingredients, and a long narrative which gives the instructions interspersed with clever and funny (or silly) discussion of the episode, how she came to decide on this recipe, and how best (or not) to present the finished product. The writing is brisk, breezy, and enjoyable. I found that I had to do some research for most of these to get the most out of her text. Hmm, now what's a Slitheen again, and why are beans on toast a good tie-in? Off to Google image -- oh right, I remember --flatulence.
If this were available in print, it would make a fine gift for that Who fan on your list. Actually, I think that the official Dr Who people should license her recipes and text, and produce a version which has official images in it.
Good job on this.
As soon as you start reading it, the onslaught of grammatical errors can be incredibly overwhelming and just by looking at it I had this sinking suspicion that the book might have been self published. Maybe I should have really observed the title "Unauthorized Whovian Cookbook". But, that aside, I have to commend Ms. Oseland. She did put a lot of time into creating this book. You can definitely tell she studied almost every episode of Doctor Who and while I'm a fan, some of the things in this book even I don't remember. The pictures of the finished products are grainy and dark and a lot of the recipes end up saying, "Use your imagination and use this instead of that." which I could clearly do on my own if I wanted to. I am, however, excited to try the nifty cocktail recipes.
I find this more like an arts and crafts book more than a cookbook to be honest. Things like, "Find a really straight banana to make a Dalek." doesn't count as a recipe in my book.
That all being said, it's not a complete waste of my money. It's adorable, cheeky, and a bit entertaining if you're willing to devote your creative juices to creating mini villainous Doctor Who characters. If you're going to buy it, buy the Kindle version. Sadly, the print book isn't anything special.
Who doesn't think Nutella and Daleks are a match made in intercosmic space? Are you on a liquid diet? That's fine! There's plenty of cocktail options. If you're a fan of the author's previous book on booze, "SteamDrunks: 101 Steampunk Cocktails and Mixed Drinks", you are fully aware that this geeky gal knows how to make a drink!
The Holidays(tm) are right around the corner, and even a baby eating Atheist like myself would appreciate finding such a gift wrapped up in my Kindle.
It is a paperback. The text will bleed if you spill water on the pages which isn't cookbook friendly. The font is miniature. I assume it is to save on pages. The whole cookbook screams low budget to me even though as of Nov 7th 2014, amazon sells it for $17.99. It definitely is not worth that much. It looks like someone typed up on Microsoft word and called it a day.
I didn't like any of the recipes because they weren't really recipes.
It's not worth it even if you're a big Whovian. I applaud the author for level of Doctor Who love but the execution is not right.

The recipes are boring, and some are barely recipes at all. Now I know why there were no sample pages to look at online. I'm returning mine for a full refund....Published 14 days ago by Arran M. Walker
Very detailed and informative regarding Doctor Who Episodes but the recipes for the most part don't sound very good and use a lot of ingredients we don't eat.Published 24 days ago by Amazon Customer
I liked it, but the inside was extremely basic, looked like an essay. Other than that, very cool incorporation of the episodes, events and characters. Read morePublished 24 days ago by Amazon Customer
