[A full review will appear soon in Philosophy Now magazine] I vaguely remember hearing about Doctor Who when I was growing up in Italy in the `70s, but never actually watched it. Then, when the BBC restarted the series in 2005 I decided it was time to see what all the fuss was about. I've been hooked ever since, and I occasionally use Doctor Who episodes in my introductory classes in philosophy because it's a natural (intelligent, and entertaining!) entry point for discussions about personal identity, the metaphysics of time travel, and, of course, ethics, ethics, ethics. I was therefore delighted to see this recent addition to the "Popular Culture and Philosophy" series. At over 400 pages the book isn't exactly light reading, though it will pay off handsomely for anyone interested in science fiction and philosophy. Still, my only complain about the volume is precisely that the editors could have done a better job at trimming it down, particularly reducing the number of (largely redundant) essays in the first part, on personal identity, a theme that also recurs (again, redundantly) in some of the later essays. Apart from this little quibble, however, there is much to enjoy in this collection. Besides the obvious topics mentioned above, we are also treated to Doctor-informed discussions of aesthetics (why, exactly, are the Daleks beautiful?), human nature ("Human beings, you're amazing. Apart from that, you're completely mad!"), the relevance of monadology to the Whoniverse, and even a discussion of the Jesus-like (shouldn't it really be Socrates-like?) character of the Doctor. There is so much more food for thought in Doctor Who and Philosophy that readers are warmly encouraged to see for themselves just how much bigger this book is on the inside. And remember: "Time travel is like visiting Paris. You can't just read the guidebook, you've got to throw yourself in! Eat the food, use the wrong verbs, get charged double and end up kissing complete strangers! ... Or is that just me?" ("The Long Game," 2007).
