But if you're like me and laugh at the rubber suits and bad CGI while you still enjoy the show, then go ahead and get this book. Just be aware--if you own or read "The Completely Useless Encyclopedia," this isn't in the same league. It's close, but it's a definite near-miss (at least for me). It's like Howarth and Lyons were trying too hard to duplicate the magic of "Useless." And, like many sequels, it just doesn't quite make it.
While it's not as side-achingly hilarious as the first book, it's still a funny read. There are some truly brilliant entries ("Sarah Jane and Rose...," amongst others, continues to reduce me to laughing tears). As long as you don't expect the same high level of inspired sarcastic humour as "Useless", then this book shouldn't disappoint you.
It pokes devastating fun at what we've always found silly about Doctor Who, but it's obvious the authors are obsessive fans of the series.
Oh, and for those who were wondering, yes, it still has the Top Ten lists! Including such titles as "Ten Pointless Poll Victories" and "Ten Stunning Revelatons The Face of Boe Might Make to the Doctor if He Can Ever Be Bothered".
