Exterminate your doubts and, if you haven't bought the first Who visual dictionary yet, get this one and relive the Doctor's adventures - until the next episode comes around.
Pluses are many: Great spread of TARDIS' interior, awesome portrait of the Master, Dalek flagship, Angels, Torchwood ( yes, few great pics of Captain Jack!) companions... I love the map of Leadworth ( British humor!) great profiles of Amy, Rory, and the 11th!
Fans of previous Doctors will be disappointed, there is more about past series in the Guinness Book of World Records 2011 ( if you haven't seen it yet check it out, even Torchwood is featured!) than in this dictionary.
I did find couple of minuses: my favorite episode Midnight is not featured, Waters of Mars and Vashta Nerada only have 1 page ( tiny profile and picture of Adelaide Brooke, which is a shame as far as great female characters go!)
Overall, it's a great gift for a Who fan ( significant others out-there, take note!)
The content is exactly what you would expect. Filled with all the characters from 50 years of Doctor Who including general information and extra bits and pieces thrown in. It doesn't go into immense detail on every character, monster, villain, companion or device but if you want to know what an Ice Warrior is for example it will tell you. This book should be in every Time Lord's library unless the swimming pool is currently in there.
The pictures are cool but little light on content and history.
9/10/11 So today was my sons bday party. He received many wonderful gifts, but this was by far his favorite. After letting him look at it, and talk about it, for over 20 minutes I finally had to take it away from him so he would rejoin the party!!! If you are a fan of the new Doctor, this book is a must have!!
