An Unofficial Planet-by-Planet Guide to the World of the Doctor from Gallifrey to Skaro
Lance Parkin - All books by this author

Doctor Who lovers, discover all there is to know about the travels of your favorite Time Lord, in all twelve of his glorious incarnations. Fans will have their burning questions answered, including: What exactly is Trenzalore? Where did the Sontraans originate? Where does the mysterious blue crystal get its powers from? Who are the Eight Legs? Which of the doctor’s companions come from Bortresoye? And more. Die-hard fans will enjoy going planet-spotting in all the weird and wonderful galaxies that the good Doctor travels to and through. In the pages of this planet-by-planet guide, readers will find:
  • Facts, stats, trivia, data, illustrations, and photographs about the Whoniverse, from the Acteon Galaxy to The Wrarth Galaxy and beyond
  • Information organized according to the galaxies and star systems in the Dr. Who stories, so they won’t miss a thing
  • Encyclopedia-style entries with compelling information on the planet, its native species, history, and the role it plays in the Doctor’s journeys
  • Tailor-made timelines that chart the Doctor’s interactions with each planet—not just on TV, but also in short stories, comics, and radio stories
This comprehensive guide to the Whoniverse is like your own personal ride on TARDIS—one no Dr. Who fan should miss!

From the Reviews:
“Doctor Who fans will enjoy this compendium by expert Parkin. VERDICT: This critical atlas is ideal for aficionados of this popular, long-running series.”
Library Journal

“The book is a beautiful item. Parkin and his publisher have gone all out and found many special items. There are numerous unique and stunning artworks in the pages along with some familiar photos. We loved the frame by Paul Hanley with the Tenth Doctor and all his monsters. It is a perfect coffee table item for any sci-fi household. It is lovely gift for any Whoivian.”
David Tennant News, www.david-tennant-news.com

Whoniverse can be best described as a hitchhiker’s guide to the universe of Dr. Who. It contains very detailed information of all of the interesting places and times that have been visited by the Doctor. You get whimsical trivia from these episodes and more photos than I’ve ever seen in a Dr. Who book. All of his enemies are here and those exotic places and times that made the show what it remains today. Yes, it takes you right up to the current Doctor, Peter Capaldi. The book includes wonderful timelines that put these various visits and encounters into a more linear condition for our easy reading. The full-color photos are absolutely amazing. Many are rare, and they serve up a pictorial history of The Doctor as well as you’ll ever find. All of his enemies are here and those exotic places and times that made the show what it remains today.
