Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
"Wiped", in my humble opinion, was thoroughly informative to the point where at times it was also boringly redundant.

Please don't let this opening line dissuade you from purchasing this book. While the author did a phenomenal job of researching this information, a better editor should have `wiped' some of the facts that would only be of interest to those working in the television industry. Case in point, most of the technical aspects of chapter two would be lost to many readers. While I have had some first hand experience with how video was recorded and edited in the latter days, I thought that the telling of the process was excessive even for someone who could relate to this matter. Additionally, the year by year break downs, while once again thoroughly informative, could have easily been collectively summarized.

But overall, as I continue to read this, as well as skim over some of the other chapters, it has proven itself to be quite educational and is shelf worthy for any library. As such, it is too bad that this is not available as a hardback book. I was constantly reading this in a semi-open position so as to not crack the spine. But I would rather pay the higher cost for a more durable edition since this book proves itself to be a great source of reference material.

Ideally, I would suggest for any future republications, that this book were to be broken down into two books, again, preferably hardbacks. Book One would contain the actual story of the lost episodes, while Book Two would cover all the technical material, such as wipe dates, recovery dates, episode summaries, et al. Also, I recommend a companion CD to be a part of this set.

Format: Paperback
Amazon has some great deals and this book is one of them. A wonderful companion to the storied history of Doctor Who. But at the Amazon list price of $391.96 this book is a truly amazing deal. The moment I cracked the seal to the packaging and removed the book for inspection it cured my cancer. Yes. I am now cancer free. This book is worth every penny. My cat's hair stopped falling out and I found my keys upon reading past the third chapter. I'm currently on the fifth chapter and this cheap as dirt book has my flowers blooming (IN WINTER!) and those strange stains in my bathtub have disappeared. I'm told the final chapter contains a hidden compartment which holds the entire Dalek Masterplan serial. I'm ordering another.
