Thank you so much to my wonderful and thoughtful parents for giving me this amazing Doctor Who book for Christmas, I also got lots of other Doctor Who related things for christmas which I will show in my upcoming Christmas Haul (Link Here). 

As some of you may know, I am a major Whovian, aka Doctor Who mega fan. I have loved Doctor Who since I discovered the show when it restarted with Christopher Ecclestone in 2005 and since then I've been hooked to the series. 

I loved this book so very much. This book is great for any whovian, whether they are a fan of the classic Doctor Who or the more modern Doctor Who / "New Who". I've only watched Doctor Who from the 2005 episodes until present but I really want to go back to the beginning with William Hartnell and watch all of the episodes. 

There are so many facts and stats in the book that it really makes it a fun and fast read. It is definitely a book you will read more than once and it is also a beautiful book perfect for display on your bookshelf because the cover is amazing. The information was presented in a really easy way to read with great flow with the next item of information. There are info-graphics, illustrations, bullet points and so many other little things that make the novel fun  to read. 

I really liked that the book answered some of the most aggravating questions that Whovians ask themselves. These questions include: the many deaths of Rory Williams, how timelords regenerate, the time line of River Song and how many companions the Doctor has kissed! 

This book is definitely perfect as a gift for a friend or family member who is a huge fan of the show or you could even buy it for yourself! 

Also wasn't the Christmas special, The Time of The Doctor, heartbreaking? Who's excited to see Capaldi as the Doctor? Comment below !
