Hi, I’m reading Doctor Who: A History. And I have to tell you, this is one of the coolest books I’ve read in ages. I am loving, loving, loving this book. I mean, this goes through, truly, how the show was developed. It goes over every season, every Doctor. Well, up to a certain point of course, because, you know, it’s, uh, when was this published? I didn’t even see. Anyway, the point is it’s fantastic. It’s just a fantastic book. And I mean, it goes into how they created the show, the whole concept of the show, the characters, in great detail. You know, a lot of thought went into creating those first characters, that first Doctor and all of that. And how the Doctors change over time, how the personalities change, how the show itself seemed to be kind of creating its world as it went.
This book is fantastic. I loved it. Or I am loving it. I’m not finished actually with it yet. So this may be a two-part review. I don’t know if I think of anything more to say about this book, I’ll let you know. All I know is I’m up to the Fourth Doctor and he was my favorite. I love Tom Baker. That’s all there is to it. It’s because I started off watching Doctor Who with Tom Baker back in the nineties. So that’s the way it goes. What can I say? William Hartnell was wonderful. They were, they’re all wonderful. And Romana was the first female Time Lord, by the way, on the show. Just so you know that. That’s important to know because, yeah, I’m really glad they had the first female Doctor. Finally. Thank you, Chris Chibnall for that. But, Romana was the first female Time Lord. Just saying. Thanks. Talk to you later!
PS: Okay, so maybe she wasn’t the very first female Time Lord. But she’s the first one to make an impression on me! 🙂
