There is a chapter devoted to each Doctor. Chapters start with a section of text pieces written from the perspective of fictional characters in the show, each giving the reader a feeling for the journey that particular Doctor makes. The book sometimes mixes influences from different eras. The third Doctor's chapter has a long piece by the Brig and a tiny piece by the TARDIS, who calls the Doctor 'my beautiful thief'. In the fifth Doctor's chapter Tegan is interviewed by Dr Song. Each piece has its own style of presentation as well as point of view.
The point of view pieces are where the book could be a bit difficult for new fans. It starts easy enough with a memo from Madame Kovarian and then what is meant to be the Doctor's school report card signed by Borusa. Borusa is not a name new fans could be expected to know, but he can be looked up on the internet or in one of the encyclopedic books about Dr Who. After that some fictional text pieces are attributed or clear about who is meant to be writing them -- as when the writer of the next item calls the Doctor 'Grandfather'. A few are extremely difficult to attribute unless you are a superfan who has studied the length and breadth of Dr Who.
I would recommend this book to any fan of Dr Who. It is imaginative, lovingly designed, and informative.
The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is the lack of clear attribution of all fictional text. Clearer attribution to the characters supposedly writing them would have made it easier for new fans to find out more about the characters and stories represented by the texts.
It is touching to hear of the love and dedication people have for the Doctor, and the understanding of the Doctor's persona, as well as the knowledge that each actor imbues the Doctor with his own personality.
My only complaint about the book-- and it is slight-- is the occasional misspelled word or other typo. Other than those, this book is wonderful, with lots of pictures and inside stories-- it is a must for any Doctor Who fan!
