"...there is still a great deal to be positive about in Doctor Who...."

In my opinion, that is about the biggest understatement in the history of world television. As I have seen in so many places in my 40+ years as a Citizen of Whoville, this show goes such a long way toward erasing the undeserved inferiority complex inflicted on television. The "Big Screen" vs the "Little Screen?" Fooey. This masterpiece of a show, made so much finer with Steven Moffat at the helm and Matt Smith in the starring role, puts the modern cinema to shame. It truly is a feature film made in an impossibly short production schedule. As a college teacher of creative writing and set design, I still have a few contacts in both parts of the industry, and I hear the same lament constantly: that the movie business is struggling because television is stealing all the great writers... and actors...and directors... and the lighting and sound gurus, the best set designers, stunt coordinators, makeup and costume designers, camera capos, the lot. They didn't run away; they just all went to work for Doctor Who. I have ten students who are determined to become interns for Barbara Southcott and Gordon Seed whether they are invited or not. The rest mostly argue over which Doctor they'd like to wake up and find in their shower.... An obsessed bunch, my kidlings, but they do know the best when they see it. I was so happy to get this book as a gift recently, because I had so enjoyed the previous edition. Keep them coming, Mr. Cooper. Perhaps they will help me get my students through the period of mourning which will commence come Boxing Day, when we more experienced fans have to nurse the newbies through their first regeneration.

After the comedy sci-fi in space that Doctor Who became during the Russell T. Davies years, it has been a relief to see the show return more to its roots under the stewardship of Steven Moffat, the dark fairytale themes of the 2010 series giving way to the incredibly complex, multi-layered gothic strands of the 2011 run, perhaps the most ambitious attempt at a running story the programme has ever done. And what a theme too, no less than the death of the Doctor himself! Luckily, this book by Steven Cooper and Kevin Mahoney, a follow up to their similar review of Matt Smith's first season as the Doctor, is a great help, both in untangling the many Gordian Knots that run through the 13 episodes of the 2011 series and in appreciating the grand vision and vista that Moffat has taken Who too, almost staggering in a popular not cult TV show in the modern, attention deficit wasteland of contemporary broadcasting. The authors two handed approach to covering each story works well, Cooper offering an immediate precis of the episode not long after viewing, and Mahoney providing a more considered, weighted analysis from the perspective of having watched the entire series. This way we get the adrenalin fuelled but sometimes confused feeling we all have after watching some episodes backed with the understanding of how all the pieces of Moffat's intricate jigsaw finally fit together. As the authors said, it was a sometimes exhausting ride, but their exhaustive coverage goes a long way towards enhancing the enjoyment of the 2011 run. At times the recommendations for DVDs to watch from the classic series seems a little superfluous and tenuous, but otherwise I greatly enjoyed reading this book and look foward to the 2012-13 edition to accompany the ever expanding Whoinverse of Steven Moffat and Matt Smith.

Well, if you love Who, you'll love this book. It's a great add-on to the season.

The book is composed of two sets of reviews of each episode. One from the point of view of someone who has just watch the episode and is commenting on it singularly. The second from someone who has watched the entire season and is then commenting on each episode.

These two points of view bring to light certain threads you may have missed or better explain aspects of the episode.

Personally, after reading this book, I had to go back and watch some of these episodes to see what the writers saw, which did two things for me. First, fueled my addiction of the the Who and second, made me really appreciate the complexity and controversy Steven Moffat wrote into the season.

Enjoy.

I am a uber Dr Who fan and I enjoyed this book. The only negative thing about the book is that Matt Smith is the Doctor. I liked Christopher Eccleston and David Tennant much better. Matt Smith is too much a nerd and not a good doctor.
