THE ESSENTIAL DOCTOR WHO CONTINUES WITH TARDIS SPECIAL
Panini’s new series of Doctor Who bookazines continues with an issue dedicated to the TARDIS.
The Essential Doctor Who: The TARDIS is a lavish 116-page guide featuring details of every major TARDIS story. There are exclusive new interviews with scriptwriters Steve Thompson (Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS) and Christopher H Bidmead (Logopolis, Castrovalva, Frontios), guest star Suranne Jones (Idris in The Doctor’s Wife), the show’s current production designer Michael Pickwoad and the Radiophonic Workshop’s Brian Hodgson, Dick Mills and Mark Ayres.
The publication also includes articles on TARDIS collectables, a history of the original police boxes by a retired superintendent, maps of the ship’s interior and a three-part guide on how to operate the console.
“The TARDIS is an essential part of Doctor Who, so we had to feature it in this series of bookazines,” says editor Marcus Hearn. “We’ve taken a fresh look at one of the show’s most familiar icons, and I’m pleased that we’ve been able to include so much previously unpublished material.”
