      A fantastic gift for a die-hard Whovian

      I've been a huge fan of Doctor Who for several years now, and it was during the first series of 'New Who' that I fell in love with it. I have since watched every new episode at least three times (in most cases far, far more) and many of the older episodes from before it was revived by Russell T Davies. I keep coming back to the series with Christopher Eccleston and Billie Piper, as it was through Nine and Rose that I fell in love with the Time Lord from Gallifrey, the 'lonely god'.

      This book has fuelled this obsession. It presents the scripts from the series. I've read this so many times, probably almost as often as I've watched the series itself. It's partly because of this that I've memorised almost all the dialogue from the 13 episodes it contains. As expected, the scripts are well written and surprisingly easy to read. They also make you notice things you don't necessarily see as a casual viewer.

      I'd recommend this book for anyone who is a die-hard Whovian or interested in drama and scriptwriting as it is an excellent example of how to write a successful television show. For those who are more casual viewers of Doctor Who, it may not be so interesting. This book has been out for a while now; I bought it fairly shortly after publication from Waterstones. It is also available online. The cover is recognisable as part of the Doctor Who franchise as it shares the same branding as all the other books from this era of Doctor Who.

      It's just a shame that, to the best of my knowledge, similar books have not been released for any of the seasons which followed this one, as I would love to be able to read the scripts from the David Tennant and Matt Smith eras to compare them.
