The TARDIS Chronicles: Volume 1 is an unofficial book that charts the voyages of the Doctor’s space and time ship. Designed and illustrated by Paul Smith, with a foreword by former DWM editor Clayton Hickman, this book documents every on-screen journey the TARDIS has undertaken. For each trip there are notes detailing which controls are used and what they do, what we learn about the functions and abilities of the TARDIS, plus behind-the-scenes facts about props, sets, models and materialisation techniques.

The book includes comprehensive histories of every police-box prop, control-room set and console, covering their design, construction, usage and modifications. These are illustrated with accurate schematics, including annotated plans of every control panel and their variations.
