Travel through space and time with this guide to 50 years of Doctor Who.
Doctor Who has been a television phenomenon since it began 50 years ago on November 23, 1963. But of all the hundreds of televised stories, which are the ones you must watch? Featuring 50 stories from all eleven Doctors, Who’s 50 is full of behind-the-scenes details, exhilarating moments, connections to Who lore, goofs, interesting trivia and much, much more. Who’s 50 tells the story of this global sensation: its successes, its tribulations and its triumphant return. (Goodreads Synopsis)

Who's 50 is a wonderful guide for any Whovian. Concentrating on 50 episodes from both classic and new series, this book is a delightful journey not only through the storylines of each episode but through the history of the show and its cast and writers.

The love of the show felt by the authors really shines through and there is plenty of humour as well as interesting facts and anecdotes.

If you are a fan of Doctor Who, I can highly recommend checking out this publication. Or, if you are interested in the series but don't know where to start, this book may offer some ideas on which episodes to try first.
